Leora pushed me to stay true to myself in my essays. She believes in authenticity, and helped me figure out what part of my story was most important to tell to convey who I am.” Emma, USC

“The Uncommon Advantage provided me help throughout my high school career. From chemistry to calculus, I could not have survived without Leora’s strong team.” Nick, Cornell University

“In high school, writing essays is about following a template or formula crafted by your teacher or the English department. While that kind of writing is helpful for formally written pieces such as research papers, it is hard to develop one’s voice through formulas and structures. College essays ask a student to write in his or her voice. With Leora, I was able to fully develop and master my voice in writing. It takes a skillful teacher to teach good essay writing but only Leora can teach you to write an essay and help you find your own voice and style along the way.”  Sara, Columbia University

“College applications are daunting for students and nerve-wracking for parents. Leora provided step by step support, her ACT/SAT tutors are top notch, and we felt consistently well supported throughout the entire application process.” mother of Samantha, Yale University

“It was a relief to work with Leora. Senior year is stressful, and I started my first semester with my common application essay complete. She helped me organize my ideas so I could write about them in my own way. We tackled the supplements and she taught me how to convey my passion for all my school choices.” Kevin, New York University
