Led by Cristina Slattery, a non-fiction writer who has published articles in outlets ranging from The New York Times to The Wall Street Journal, the personal statement creation and review service is one that helps college and university applicants, as well as those applying to graduate programs, showcase their individuality and unique experiences to admissions officers.

Cristina has an undergraduate degree with honors from Harvard University, a master’s in English from Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf School of English, and a master’s in Teaching from Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education.

Cristina's one-on-one service includes:

  • A preliminary virtual consultation and brainstorming session via Zoom with Cristina.
  • Two draft critiques of personal statements.

Developing a well-crafted personal statement and answering the school’s specific questions will give applicants an advantage as they seek to enter a variety of types of institutions of higher education.

Let admissions officers know the “you” behind the numbers…this service will help you both discover and highlight your strengths that go beyond test scores!

Cristina has also worked with international students as a teacher for seven years - both in the U.S. and abroad – and as a college counselor for students applying to competitive American and U.K. universities from the Middle East and China. She enjoys guiding students and helping them figure out their passions and unique interests.

As a non-fiction writer whose articles have been published in many international and national publications, Cristina finds it rewarding to help students refine their personal statements and showcase their unique experiences.


    One-on-One advising sessions will meet via Zoom.


    Note that space is limited. You can sign up for this service by completing your tuition payment. Once we have received your tuition you will be connected to Cristina via email and you can schedule your preliminary virtual consultation and brainstorming session, which will take place via Zoom.


    You can pay for the course in full or use Shop Pay or Affirm to pay over time with equal Monthly Payments. Both options are available at checkout.
