Both my son and daughter have had the pleasure of working with Margery Kashman on their college application essays. With both, she was able to help them organize their ideas and formulate a plan to move forward quickly and independently. Since we live about an hour away from Margery’s office, most of their contact with her was through email. She was always quick to respond and accessible.
I first hired Margery to help motivate my son who was procrastinating writing his college essay. We were running out of time and he had total writer’s block. She was truly amazing. In one visit Margery was able to help him organize his ideas and formulate a plan to move forward which he did quickly and independently. My son was happy with his progress and I was grateful to have avoided the nagging that was imminent without her intervention.
My daughter’s experience with Margery was very unique. It was during the notorious Hurricane Sandy that Margery was helping her complete several application essays. Despite having been evacuated from her home and relocated to a home with limited internet access, Margery seemed unruffled. She remained accommodating and supportive to my daughter and helped her successfully submit all applications on time.
Senior year and the application process can be a very stressful time for both parent and student, as we found out. To have someone as professional and caring as Margery during this process provided as much relief and comfort as having a generator during Hurricane Sandy.
