I would be happy to meet with parents to discuss college applications as a whole and other general questions, but if you would like to review and edit your child's essays on our call, your child must be present. I am committed to maintaining the integrity of your child's work, as all college essays must be coming from their own ideas and writing. With your child engaged on the call, we can discuss ways to craft their story and the best methods for improvement!
Yes! You can email me any essays or documents you'd like us to go over during the meeting. In addition, if you would like me to read through these and add comments BEFORE our meeting, I charge extra depending on the document(s) you'd like me to review. Email for inquiries.
I would happy to meet with you throughout the whole process, however I can't always guarantee availability because I am in college! My rate is always the same ($30 per 30 minutes) so feel free to book as many appointments as you need.
I will not write your essays for you! College essays are deeply personal and must come from your story, ideas, and writing. I will guide you through the development of your story and offer specific advice on how to improve essay structure,
sentence phrasing, clarity, cohesion, grammar, flow, and storytelling. I can suggest alternative sentences or words you can use, but I will not completely rewrite sections of your essay.
Many times, students send their essay for review when their structure, storytelling, and overall approach are off in the first place.
Don’t waste time scrapping and rewriting your essay over and over. Instead, let me teach you how to build a solid foundation and refine your essay from the ground up.
After spending $1000+ and 40+ hours with elite college admissions counselors, I was able to gain the knowledge I needed in 60 minutes with Dyllen. Her pricing model is incredible for students looking to gain rapid feedback on their essays and her resources provide actionable insights into the admissions process. Her platform undoubtedly provides robust and comprehensive resources that are optimized for students and their stage in the journey. Dyllen should be the primary option for students when seeking input from someone who went through the college process.
Dyllen has the eye of a storyteller. For my Common App essay, which ultimately became one of my UC PIQs, Dyllen helped clarify different moving parts of my essay to become one cohesive narrative. By asking a number of probing questions, identifying confusing syntax, and pointing out opportunities for me to tie my complicated story together, her feedback made sure I presented myself in the best way possible Because of Dyllen, I was able to show who I was and who I became in my story, and this is a skill that not many people can do well. But Dyllen can! Compared to other services, Dyllen's is affordable and focuses on capturing who YOU are as an individual. Using her feedback and watching her videos allowed me to create an application that I was proud of!
One of the most important decisions I made during my college application process was getting Dyllen to help me brainstorm essay ideas and later on edit two rounds of my Common App essay. Her feedback helped me understand where my writing was strong and where I needed to go back to the drawing board so that I could craft the strongest application possible. I cannot thank her enough and recommend her to any and everyone! She has helped me achieve my goal of attending Stanford, and I know she can do the same for you!
Dyllen has edited many of my essays, and I can confidently say I would recommend her to any of my friends or classmates. Her edits are very comprehensive and she has ensured that all my essays sound precise, personal, and interesting to read. I definitely recommend scheduling a Zoom call with her to explain your ideas for your essays, she has been very helpful in helping me find ways to elevate my essay topics and make them incredibly specific. Her help has reduced my stress greatly in this process and I truly believe her services are worth the money.
Meeting with Dyllen over Zoom at the end of summer before senior year allowed me to have a lot of clarity and direction going into college essay writing season. We brainstormed my theme and ways to tell my story, which helped me get a good head start on the hardest part of essay writing. I appreciated all of her great ideas and encouragement so much!
