If you're anything like me when I was in high school...

You've got BIG DREAMS of attending a top school

You know that most students get
rejected from your dream schools.

But here's how you're different from most students...

• You know you need strategy & support to ensure your application stands out.
• You value your time too much to waste it on endless essay drafts that just don't cut it.
• You love the sense of control and freedom that comes with being on top of your sh*t.
• You know that starting early is the key to higher-quality applications and less stress.
• You're eager to make your 4 years of hard work worth it.
• You want to submit with full confidence and pride that you gave it your best shot!

I get it, college applications are nerve-wracking.

Not only does it determine your future, but it also challenges you to do


on your identity, values, and life experiences.

(And as a teenager, this level of self-awareness may be unfamiliar to you!)

That's why you need a coach who specializes in
personal storytelling AND application strategy.

So let's be honest...

Who would you feel more comfortable sharing your
deepest values, struggles, & identity with?

^ One of my students just this year!

Say hello to your path to success!

Here's what we will do in our time together 🙂

Your College Game Plan

In each of our sessions together, I will untangle your ideas and provide you with clarity of mind.

We’ll begin by creating your personalized, color-coded college application dashboard!
This will give you an organized method to track your application progress, tasks, deadlines, and neatly store all of your essay drafts.

Holistic Strategy

In our sessions together, we will find valuable connections between your seemingly unrelated activities, highlight your strengths, and weave them together into a compelling narrative.

I’ll guide you to determine which essay topics are best suited for your personal statement versus supplemental essays. We will also tailor your applications based on the unique preferences and culture of each school, helping you develop stronger arguments that demonstrate why you would be a great fit!

The Brainstorming Process

My process enables you to dig below the surface to uncover golden insights. I will ask you a series of questions during the brainstorming process, welcoming you to brain-dump anything and everything on your mind. Don’t worry about writing it all down – my fast typing skills have got you covered.

Together, we will learn who you are, your areas of interest, your past experiences, your limiting beliefs, your moments of growth, and how all of these come together to shape your mindset & values. These will help you establish a stronger sense of self and shine amongst the rest of the application pile.

At this stage, I like to keep your mind open and free, not locked into any words you’ve written. This will allow us to identify a clear theme and character arc for your essay, so your ideas will flow seamlessly from one to the other. I will teach you how to write an essay that showcases your best qualities, yet still feels true to you. (I don’t believe in fabricating false narratives!)

Essay Writing & Revision

Once we’ve landed on the best topic, we will piece together your narrative into a detailed outline for your essay, broken down paragraph by paragraph. So then, all you have to do next is turn our bullet point notes into sentences. (It’s that easy.)

I will work with you in real-time to uncover the missing details and points of connection in your story. I find that the most valuable insights are discovered when we open a conversation to dissect the thought process behind your writing.

You will read your essay draft out loud to me, I’ll give you holistic feedback, and then we’ll edit each paragraph of your essay to ensure that your wording matches your intended meaning. We will then polish your phrasing and condense your sentences to fit the word limit. You’d be surprised by how much you can convey about your life, experiences, and identity in just 250, 350, or 650 words! Changes to your essay will be made right then and there, so you are left with a beautifully crafted narrative – and pride in yourself!


I recognize the value of multiple perspectives. You will also get to submit your essays to my expert essay editing team – an unlimited number of times!

We will repeat this process as many times as needed to complete ALL the applications on your college list!

Activities & Awards List

Level up your activities and achievements – just by the way you write about them! I will help you showcase your activities in the best light by optimizing your character count, using strong action verbs, and ordering them in a strategic way.

Don’t be shy, this is your moment to humble brag!

And on top of alllllll that, you're gonna get some sweet BONUSES
to make the process even easier.

"Dyllen pushed my son beyond anything I would've thought possible."

"My son learned more about writing in the two weeks between Christmas and the New Year than in his 4 years of school! I only wish that we had found Dyllen a year earlier. She went out of her way to be encouraging with rough love and pushed my son beyond anything I would've thought possible."

"I am happy to share that because of Dyllen’s help, I will be attending my dream school: Boston University!!!"

"When I met with Dyllen on Zoom for the first time, I was all over the place! Dyllen immediately helped ease my nerves and provided great advice while answering all of my countless, and very specific questions. I have many friends who paid for SAT tutoring and other personal college counseling, and based on what I’ve heard from them, Dyllen’s services are far more valuable and she is so much more skilled at what she does. I highly recommend that all college applicants take advantage of the tools and services she has to offer."
Luke – Boston University
Vania Cornell

"I got a full ride to an Ivy League!"

"With Dyllen's program, I learned what to do before the writing process, how to level up the essays, and how to save crucial time by recycling essays in the best way possible! There are plenty of resources on how to write essays but this program really gave me a new perspective on portraying me as a human and how to stand out as an international student. I wouldn't have been able to make it without your help Dyllen!"
Vania – Cornell University

"Dyllen's college essay advising service stands unparalleled to any other service out there!"

"I entered the college application process without much support from others but I stumbled upon Dyllen's YouTube channel over the summer. She generously offers so many resources and I can tell that she loves working with every one of her students. To all future applicants, definitely reach out to Dyllen for help! I thought of it as an investment into my future and I'm so glad that Dyllen makes this process accessible to all!"
Vivian – Stanford University

"Dyllen is fantastic and knows so much about college essays."

"Even though I felt confident about my general writing abilities, college essay writing is a different beast. She helped me tackle it, encouraging me to reflect further and refine my essays into pieces that were authentically me. She was always timely and available to answer follow-up questions, too. I'd highly recommend her services wherever you are in your application process!"
Allison – UC Berkeley

Unlike other college consultants,
my private coaching package is ALL-IN-ONE.

My goal is to help you create the best college applications possible for every school you are applying to. This means I provide you with ALL the resources and support to make your college application journey a success.

I will coach you through EVERY college essay you write – not just your applications to 3 or so schools (like a lot of other college consultants). So while other college consulting services will restrict the number of schools or essay revisions they will help you with, I am committed to seeing your application through from start to finish!


When does this program start? How long will this process take?

We will begin meeting weekly on Zoom starting in the summer before senior year! It is estimated that this entire process will take 6-7 months. However, this length of time may fluctuate depending on the student and their needs. If it takes a couple extra hours to get the applications completed, I’ll be flexible so we can get ’em done!

I am a parent. How involved can I be?

Hey there! While your child is in my program, you’ll never be left in the dark about the status of your child’s college applications. You must attend the Free Strategy Call with your child, and when you enroll you will be fully informed of all program policies. 


I ask that you allow your child and me to meet in our weekly coaching sessions 1 on 1. I will provide you a written Session Summary for each session we have, so you’ll always stay in the know. But if you would like to ask me questions, I will allow the first or last 5 minutes of each session for you to join the Zoom. Since this is your child’s college application, I must work with them privately for the remainder of the session. 

Do you edit essays offline or only in the Zoom sessions?


In the early stages of an essay, I like to work with students live on Zoom. I find that the most valuable insights are discovered when we open a conversation in real-time to dissect the thought process behind your writing.


But as your essay evolves and just needs some extra tweaks and polishing, I am happy to edit essays offline. You can also submit your essays to my essay editing team to gain multiple perspectives – an unlimited number of times!

Is this program only for students who want to attend Ivy Leagues?

Nope! Whatever your dream school may be, we’ll do our best to get there 🙂

Will you write my essays for me?

I will not write your essays for you! College essays are deeply personal and must come from your voice, ideas, and story. I will guide you through the development of your story and offer specific advice on how to improve essay structure, sentence phrasing, clarity, cohesion, grammar, flow, and storytelling. I can suggest alternative sentences or words you can use, but I will not completely write or rewrite your essay.

UC Berkeley Logo

"Dyllen has the eye of a storyteller."

"Dyllen helped clarify different moving parts of my essay to become one cohesive narrative. By asking a number of probing questions, identifying confusing syntax, and pointing out opportunities for me to tie my complicated story together, her feedback made sure I presented myself in the best way possible. Compared to other services, Dyllen's focuses on capturing who YOU are as an individual. Because of Dyllen, I was able to show who I was and who I became in my story, and this is a skill that not many people can do well. But Dyllen can! Her teachings and feedback allowed me to create an application that I was proud of!"
Clara – UC Berkeley

"I won the USC Presidential Scholarship!"

"Dyllen's program helped me so much throughout my college application process. She really allowed me to add structure to the process, identify what I needed to work on, organize my ideas, and evaluate what I truly wanted to convey in my essays. The videos and curriculum integrated into her course really helped me tell my story and be proud of my writing. It was definitely worth it! I would recommend it!"
Uriel – USC

"Thanks for helping me get into the Ivy League!"

"Dyllen helped bring clarity to my essay structure that was desperately needed, further helping to unify my ideas into a cohesive narrative for a successful application that highlighted the best I had to offer."
Prince – Cornell University

"Meeting with Dyllen over Zoom allowed me to have a lot of clarity and direction going into college essay writing season."

"We brainstormed my theme and ways to tell my story, which helped me get a good head start on the hardest part of essay writing. I appreciated all of her great ideas and encouragement so much!"
Isabella – Yale University

"I wrote authentic essays!"

"Dyllen really helped me challenge myself to play with my writing in a visual and creative way rather than try to make myself sound a certain way through my writing that wasn’t authentic. I loved the examples she used and the descriptions and emphasis on utilizing sensory imagery in my essays."
Sarah – New York University
Columbia Logo

"Dyllen made it easy."

The college application process was super stressful and scary, but Dyllen made it easy to step back and get to the root of my problems. If you're unsure about what stories to write about, she made it easy to pinpoint the most interesting things about you, make them relevant to your character, and write wonderful essays. Dyllen broke down the structure and made it a more collaborative and individualized experience, making it easier to figure out what to write about."
Julie – Columbia University

"Dyllen understands the college application process, and I knew I could trust her feedback."

"She gave me great advice on how to better organize my supplements and "spice up" the writing style. She also explained her suggestions in a simple way so that I could easily understand how to make adjustments. She is also extremely accessible and provided a quick turn-around time. I definitely recommend her services!"
Eve – University of Pennsylvania
New York

Dyllen undoubtedly provides robust and comprehensive resources that are optimized for students and their stage in the journey. Dyllen should be the primary option for students when seeking input from someone who went through the college process.

Zayn – Babson College Washington

I can confidently say I would recommend Dyllen to any of my friends or classmates. Her edits are very comprehensive and she has ensured that all my essays sound precise, personal, and interesting to read. I definitely recommend meeting on Zoom with her to explain your ideas for your essays, she has been very helpful in helping me find ways to elevate my essay topics and make them incredibly specific. Her help has reduced my stress greatly in this process and I truly believe her services are worth the money.

Samantha – Purdue University Illinois

As an international student who was completely new to the process, Dyllen helped greatly in breaking down each and every step of crafting the perfect essay. I was able to effectively brainstorm ideas for my essays and perfect my essays to tell my authentic story to colleges. I haven’t come across any other extensive resource for essay writing elsewhere! Definitely recommend it to seniors who are struggling to craft their own story.

Mahi - UC San Diego Singapore

A BIG thank you for creating this program. It has helped me become more comfortable with sitting myself down and learning more about myself. I feel more connected and in-tune with myself now that I have completed the admissions process. The "things I feel vulnerable about" part honestly brought me to tears. Dyllen provides VERY thorough instructions and makes it so college apps doesn't feel like work. Thank you Dyllen!
