"Hello, my name is Rayan! I am an application mentor. I hold degrees from Yale (BA) and Oxford (MPhil) and am currently a doctoral candidate in Public Policy at the University of Oxford's Blavatnik School of Government, where I'm supported by the Rhodes Scholarship.

I offer support in application essay writing, interview prep, resume design, and recommendation letter strategy (yes, there is strategy to recommendation requests). This includes applications for college and university admission, scholarships and fellowships, and careers and internships.

I have extensive experience mentoring in these fields, both on a voluntary and professional basis. I began tutoring in secondary school and mentoring applications immediately after my own admission to college primarily serving low-income and first-generation students (like myself). I now hold a role as a senior/VIP college application & interview prep tutor at one of the largest educational services companies in the world. I also worked for Yale University Admissions as a student liaison.

Personally, I have achieved admission at numerous of the top universities in the world (including Yale and Oxford, from which I hold undergraduate and graduate degrees) and selection for the most prestigious scholarship in the world, the Rhodes Scholarship. I've also been selected for highly-competitive internships and fellowship positions at the World Bank, Human Rights Watch, and under former Sec. of State John Kerry.

An attentive and introspective writing process, in-depth interview prep procedure, and strategic resume design & recommendation letter selection have made these accomplishments possible. I'm now happy to share these methods with high schoolers, college and university students, and adult learners looking to ace upcoming (and future) applications.

I've allotted a select number of hours outside of my doctoral research to support applicants (to college, university, fellowships, jobs, or otherwise). Do inquire whether if I am still available; I'd love to help!" less...
