Mary Kate provided invaluable input on my essays for application to masters programs and scholarships. Her suggestions not only made for more streamlined, better flowing essays, but ones that more clearly and forcefully expressed my thoughts and intentions. She was able to see beyond the words I had written to the heart of what I was trying to express. Under her guidance, both my essays and my writing technique improved and I gained courage that helped me through the grueling application process. I could not recommend Mary Kate’s services more.
