Stefanie made me a stronger writer by working with me on grammar, word choice, and conciseness. Her feedback was invaluable, and I feel fortunate for her assistance.

Stefanie was a pleasure to work with. She was responsive and provided great edits and ideas for my son's essays. She is extremely dedicated. As an educator and parent, I highly recommend her.

Stefanie is very caring, helpful, attentive to details. She makes me feel accomplished in my writing. I like that her schedule is flexible too.

"My time working with Stefanie was wonderful - we were able to make the most of our sessions together. She was able to help me write awesome supplements that were full of my voice and anecdotes by talking through my writing in storytelling. Despite the stress of college applications, she was able to guide me through the process and make it manageable and even fun."
