College & Graduate School Application Essay Editing

As expert test prep and academic instructors with experience helping students gain admission into top colleges and universities worldwide, MyGuru’s tutors know how to attract the attention of admissions officers. Given the depth and breadth of our academic experience, we offer an essay editing service to help students make their stories stand out among the crowd. Our application essay editing service takes rough drafts and shapes their narratives into a cohesive and compelling story designed to capture the attention of any academic program.

We offer two options for essay editing:

  • Live Editing via Videoconference and Screenshare
  • Offline Editing via Email Revisions

The English language can be difficult to master and communicating ideas effectively, especially when talking about yourself, does not come easily for everyone. Our essay editors have advanced degrees in English, Journalism, or Literature, and have been teaching or tutoring for a minimum of several years. 

Here's an overview of one of our top editors in New York, Sonam:

  • M.A., English Language & Literature, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

Additional rounds of revisions after that are $30 each. We do require that students provide an initial draft before engaging in any editing services.
