As an experienced tutor for 11th and 12th grade students, Marguerita Merrick is well versed in the dos and don’ts of college essay writing. She has helped countless students gain admissions to their schools of choice, and always seeks to make the college application process more enjoyable for her students. For one family, Marguerita’s touch made all the difference when it came to getting in to their dream schools.
“We hired Marguerita several years ago as an essay coach to assist our older son with his personal statement and supplementals for college applications. She worked with him again two summers ago to craft a personal statement for med school applications. She also provided SAT tutoring for our younger son. The essays were amongst the best our sons’ teachers ever read, and their standardized test scores soared.
Our older son was accepted to his Early Decision college, and now attends medical school at an Ivy League university. Our younger son was also accepted to a top university where he is currently a student.
We have worked with other tutors, so we can honestly say that Marguerita is exceptional. She is very familiar with test-taking strategies, is a talented writer, and knows how to bring the best out of her students. She is an absolute pleasure: professional, smart, friendly, punctual, responsive and detail-oriented.”
Marguerita Merrick tutors the SAT, ACT, ISEE, SHSAT, GRE, and Regents, and works 1:1 with high school seniors on their college essays and supplements. Her students have gained admission to such top-tier colleges as Columbia, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown, and more.
