Essay Editing & Management
Having read thousands of personal statements over the course of our careers as counselors, writing tutors and coaches, and admissions officers, the easiest explanation is that we just “know” when we read an effective essay! And a formula? Please ignore anyone who tries to convince you that one exists. We offer essay management and editing services to help students and other IECs navigate the essay process efficiently and effectively.

Special Programs

We’ve got new programs launching in 2020!  To stay up-to-date on program announcements, please subscribe. The first is a purpose project collaboration with Strategy Girl. A purpose project is a project that draws on your interests and talents—the things you love, that bring you joy, that excite you academically—that you feel would fill a need in your school, community, or the world.

Call it a whatever you want—a team, #squad, or wolfpack—but girls need to lift each other up in order to all rise. When we come together, and step up and take the lead, there is no limit to what we can accomplish. Not a girl in high school, or not located in NYC, but interested in pursuing a purpose project? Please email us! For information about one-on-one college counseling, please visit this page.

Academic Resilience Coaching

Navigating the academic, social and personal journey through high school and college can be challenging for students and their families. At various points, students might find themselves feeling unmotivated, disengaged, lonely, or hopeless about the future and their abilities to achieve.

Dr. Delvina Miremadi-Baldino’s Realize Your Resilience program specializes in a unique form of coaching, tailored to help students foster their unique capacity for resilience and discover their individualized pathways to success. Every student deserves to wake up in the morning feeling confident in who they are, believing in their abilities, and feeling optimistic and positive about the future. And with this confidence, belief in themselves, and new perspective, students are better equipped to navigate the challenges they face with grit (perseverance and passion) and resilience (grow, succeed, and thrive). There is no one size fits all model to academic resilience coaching. RYR’s approach honors that individuals have their own unique “learning” journey and that given the right tools, curious questioning, and safe space to explore, they will have the capacity to flourish.
