Hello! My name is Heather, and I’m a tutor, data analyst, and writer from Kansas, who currently lives in San Mateo, California.

After helping students and parents navigate the college admissions process for the past decade, I realized I wanted to create something that could reach more people than I ever could as a one-on-one tutor. My goal in creating a blog & a newsletter is to alleviate the anxiety that comes with test prep, college admissions, and the transition to college.

My background makes me uniquely positioned to provide guidance on these topics. In addition to my work as a tutor, I have read hundreds of college applications for schools like Yale, MIT, and Stanford. As a grad student at Harvard, I conducted research on the effectiveness of SAT prep programs.
