I am an educational professional, translator, and author who has seen academia from all sides. I understand how stressful the application process can be, so I enjoy sharing expertise as well as encouragement with my clients.Although my background is in the humanities, the majority of my clients on Zhishiq.com so far have been in the field of finance, with a significant number in architecture, urban planning, and computer science as well. I love to research new topics, so I welcome the opportunity to collaborate with clients in all academic disciplines.I am a native speaker of American English, but I am well-versed in the written conventions of British English as well. I keep up to date with the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, and I believe in the serial comma.
我是一个教育工作者，翻译以及作家。我深刻的了解申请的过程中你会面临的巨大压力，所以我希望发挥我的专长从而帮助激励我的客户。 虽然我的专业背景是社科人文， 但是觉得部分我帮助的客户的专业背景是金融，以及建筑， 城市规划还有计算机科学。 我喜欢研究新的领域， 所以我珍惜和不同学术领域的客户的合作机会。对于美式英语和英式英语我都可以处理。 同时我也在时刻关注学术写作界的最新动态， 比如芝加哥写作方式。
I am a graduate of the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Slavic Languages & Literature with a focus on Russian language. Additionally, I have completed 60 credits of graduate education at Harvard University, and plan to write my thesis and finish my degree this year. In my professional life, I have worked as an administrator in the admissions office at the University of Michigan Medical School, at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University, and at the Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies at UMich. I have read and evaluated thousands of applications for graduate and professional school admission, as well as scholarships and fellowships (including post-doctoral residencies). My job duties have also included evaluating job applicants and conducting interviews for university employment. All of those experiences equip me to help my clients prepare for success in the academic world.
During my undergraduate studies, I completed a certificate course for teaching ESL/TESOL, and began my tutoring career with three students: one native Spanish speaker and two Punjabi speakers. When I moved to Massachusetts, I began using my Russian language skills to tutor native Russian and Armenian speakers in English. Since then, I have expanded my purview to include English language arts and writing skills. My past clients have ranged from middle and high school students seeking help with reading assignments to PhD candidates struggling with literature reviews and dissertation chapters. I love helping a student produce a completed project, with all of the sense of accomplishment that entails. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, sewing, hiking, photography, and travel.
我在密歇根安娜堡完成了斯拉夫语言&文学的本科学习，我的细分方向是俄语研究。除此之外， 我今年也即将完成我在哈佛大学的学习。 在我的职业生涯中，我曾经在密歇根大学医学院招生办以及哈佛大学俄罗斯欧洲研究学院招生办工作过。 我曾经阅读过数以千计的申请文书，以及奖学金研究基金的申请文书。我同时负责校园招聘的相关工作。这些宝贵的经历让我可以帮助你在学术界取得成功。
在本科的时候，我获得了对外英语的教学资格证同时开始了我的教育生涯：我的学生的母语是西班牙语和蒲佳旁语。后来我搬到了马塞诸塞州， 我开始使用我的俄语技能教授学生来自俄罗斯和亚美尼亚。 从那之后，我就把英文语言教学以及写作纳入了我的专业范围。 我过去的客户范围非常广， 有在课业上寻求帮助的中学生， 也有在答辩论文上感到迷茫的博士学生。 我希望可以帮助你完成一份可以完全展现你的成就的申请材料。 在我的闲暇时间，我喜欢阅读， 缝纫，爬山，摄影以及旅行。

Nicole helped me a lot! She is professional and talented.
When I read the first version, I couldn't believe my eyes, because Nicole had done so much, and thanks to her efforts, the structure of my statement became apparently clearer. Nicole also helped me to reduce the word count which has bothered me for a long time (Nicole conveys the same idea using fewer words).
In a word, Nicole has really helped me. Thank you Nicole! (And if anyone see this comment, I think he should choose Nicole without any hesitation, as Nicole is trustworthy!)
Thank you so much for your very kind review! It was a pleasure to work on your statement with you.
Best wishes for success and happiness as you pursue your goals!

Nicole is so professional, informative and trustworthy. For my first draft, she gave me many detailed suggestions along with examples to redevelop my content to make it more persuasive and tailored to the programme. She let me understand what makes a good personal statement, and helped me realize my essay's weakness. For the second draft which was added more contents, she worked carefully to stick to the word count, making the language concise and the key content stand out. The polished version reached high economy of words and involved a lot more information. Throughout the whole service, she patiently answered all my questions in detail, and was willing to hear from my thoughts even after the second edit was finished. I am glad to have chosen Nicole, and I believe she will be a great advisor for students applying to programmes of humanities, as well as other fields that she is experienced in.
Thank you for these kind comments, Fan. It's been my pleasure to work with you.
Very best wishes for your future!
