Writing & Editing

Writing projects to get done? Resumes, dissertations, letters, proposals, articles? Feeling lost or helpless? Don’t be.

No matter the topic of your article, book, dissertation, or report, Dr. Elena DeVos can help you write or edit it. Of course, all academic work must be completed by you, but Dr. DeVos can get you on track, teach you the process of writing, show you the next steps, and keep you on schedule. Once you have finished, she will edit your document so that it represents you in the best possible way.

College Apps

Whether you apply to college or graduate school, you know it’s your personal statement that defines you. You want admissions committees to see you, to understand what distinguishes you from other candidates, but you don’t want to brag.

For over 20 years, Dr. DeVos has helped students write statements that set them apart from other applicants.
