Ji Seon Kim
I have spent the past 5 years walking alongside students as they navigate one of the most stressful times in their lives. I have always loved working with students: tutoring as a high schooler, helping first year students adjust to college, and volunteering extensively at schools. After being sidetracked by a career in law, I eventually returned to my passion of helping students reach their full potential.

Review transcripts, standardized test scores, and extracurricular activities.
Select colleges and majors with the best "fit". Strategize if, where, and how to apply "early" to a college. Create deadlines to ensure the completion of applications with minimal stress.
Assist with generating ideas and editing essays that are fully owned by the student. Assist with completing applications, obtaining recommendation letters, and preparing for interviews. Answer questions, listen to concerns, and provide comfort and support via text, email, video conferencing, and of course, in person to help make the process as enjoyable as possible.

"During my senior year of high school, Ji Seon helped me edit my college application essays. She was very easy to communicate with and always happy to offer feedback. I wasn't a great essay writer, and I'm pretty sure I would not have gotten into so many colleges if not for Ji Seon's help. I am graduating from Stanford this year with an M.A. in Public Policy and B.A. in East Asian Studies. Thank you, Ji Seon!" - Stanford 2017
"Ji Seon advised me on every step of the application process. She was a great resource -- she helped me narrow down my college list, provided really valuable feedback, and edited my essays with me. Because of her help, I was accepted into every single UC." - Cal 2019
"I just wanted to thank you for all the help and encouragement you gave me this whole year! It really helped in many ways and I'm so thankful for you! To show you my appreciation, I was wondering if we could get dinner together sometime!!" - USC 2021
