“Naazish was terrific in reviewing our senior’s college essays. Although he did all the writing, she would make sidebar suggestions on what he could edit out or strengthen to best express himself – never making changes to the documents – but supplying helpful comments only. They worked through a number of drafts very collaboratively. Our son got into the college of his first choice and I believe it was due in large part to his excellent college essay. It may not always be the “make it or break it” factor of an application, but the college essay does matter. Needless to say, when it comes time for our current student to apply, we will absolutely use Naazish’s services again.”

“ We naturally wanted our son to stand out in the crowded pool of college applicants, but also wanted to ensure that his applications would showcase aspects of what he will bring to his post-secondary studies beyond his STEM-heavy resume. Toward that end, Naazish brainstormed several ideas with our son, and guided him with editing and refining his core and supplemental essays. She has a remarkable way of pulling out the student’s authentic voice. Additionally, she was very flexible with scheduling, and always made herself available for last minute questions.
Our son was accepted to his first choice of schools, and also received offers of scholarships and honors college admittances from others. We believe that his essays were a significant factor in these results. Naazish’s work with our son was critical to this success, and we are very grateful for the effort and time she has spent with him." - Ted Estes, Parent of Cornell University Student
“Having Mrs. YarKhan help with my college essay was a true blessing. Once I had a rough draft of my college essay, I sent it to Mrs. YarKhan for feedback and edits. Within a day she had read through it, edited all of the points for grammar and punctuation, and had given me plenty of in-depth and thoughtful suggestions on how to revise my content and better articulate my thoughts. She was extremely responsive and emailed me within 24 hours of each of my edits. Writing college essays can be a daunting task, but with Mrs. YarKhan’s help the process became much more manageable and fun.If you are looking for an outsider’s perspective on your college essay and would like someone to help you refine your essay, there is no better person. Mrs. YarKhan goes through each college essay thoroughly and makes sure it is the best it can be, to better present you to your college.”

"Naazish was wonderful to work with - clearly communicated process and expectations for college essay preparation. She provided structure and the right questions for my son to “tell his story” but in his own words. I wish we had met Naazish earlier as my son was actually EXCITED to write his next essay for English class. He gained confidence, as well as solid skills in writing! " - Lisa J., Purdue University Mom.
"Naazish was such a helpful resource providing feedback on my child’s college essay as well as the college specific supplemental essays.

" - Liza D., Northwestern University Mom.
“No matter how behind I was on my deadlines or if I sent emails really late at night, I’d always get the perfect amount of help in such a short period of time. Her schedule was so flexible and easy to work with. Having someone with as much experience and passion for writing as she does helped so much. To anyone debating whether they should or shouldn’t invest in this service, I promise it’s well worth it.”

"Naazish offered the perfect balance of push and pull, supportive praise and constructive critique to motivate my daughter in writing and refining her (college) essay to its best. Naazish was able to push my daughter through her fears to see the talent that lay beneath, and provide the structure needed to pare down her detail so every word was meaningful. Through this, she inspired a great deal of confidence in my daughter’s own gift of writing and helped her delve deeper into her theme and “story” to flush out a remarkably deep and thoughtful essay. I am deeply appreciative of Naazish’s talent in working with my daughter with such great care as well as effectiveness.”

" As a high school student last year, I struggled forming ideas to put into my college essays. Working with Ms Naazish was one of the best experiences for me, as she brought the best ideas out of me while helping me incorporate it perfectly in an essay. She was able to bring out my authentic voice and helped me get into multiple colleges of my choice. I would definitely recommend Ms Naazish to any students out there struggling with college applications!" - ZAYD B., Student, UIUC
"Naazish YarKhan is an amazing coach who was responsive, attentive and responsible with deadlines. She took time in understanding my goals and the objective of my writing through discussion and thoughtful questions. Naazish provided great insight and valuable tips while displaying my authentic voice through my work. She is very detail oriented and kept my best interest in mind. I am grateful for her guidance, encouragement, and the opportunity to learn from her. Naazish went above and beyond from the beginning brainstorming stage until completion, and generously awarded me a partial scholarship for additional work. It was a pleasure to work with Naazish and I would highly recommend her for any professional writing project for her expertise, care, competence and professionalism." - ASIMA B., Northwestern University student
"Naazish helped me so much with my college entrance essay, from figuring out what to write about and brainstorming structure to really polishing and refining my piece. I only applied to two schools, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a small liberal arts college in Indiana. I got into both. The liberal arts college accepted me two hours after they received the last required document! I really can’t help but think my essay was really what put me ahead, considering I barely scraped the high school course requirements and had almost no extracurriculars. My sister had a similar experience - her first choice college accepts very few people from our area, but she was one of them and she used Writer’s Studio too. As a side bonus, when I got my essay to a good point without using all the hours my mom had paid for, Naazish refunded us for the unused time." - OLIVIA S, student.
" Working with Naazish on the Common App essay was super helpful for both of my kids. She helped them work through their ideas and put together descriptive & impactful essays that helped them gain admissions to many of the colleges they had applied to. Working with her on this crucial step really took some of the stress out of the application process. Would highly recommend working with her!
