« I have known Jessica for several years now from high school and consider her to be one of the most devoted writers that I know. In my senior year of Highschool, during the college admissions process, Jessica helped me construct an amazingly written college essay. Jessica and I scheduled several sessions together which consisted of meticulous revision, editing, and brainstorming followed by assignments for me to complete in order to meet my application deadlines. I have never been the best writer, however, with the help of Jessica, I was able to write a cohesive and beautifully written essay that not only strengthened my applications but also helped get me into all of my top schools. Jessica’s holistic approach to writing is not only constructive but also super helpful for anyone looking to improve their writing skills for college. She not only exudes talent but she is also very kind and always willing to lend a helping hand. I would recommend anyone to Jessica, especially members of Superprof seeking to mature their writing skills in preparation for college. »
