"I can't thank Brett enough for all she has done for my son. He was struggling in school with most of his classes, not being able to keep up with homework. Even with an IEP, the school just didn't give him the support that he needed. A few sessions with Brett and my son's confidence level skyrocketed. All of his grades went up, and by the end of the school year he was doing his homework independently. Her insight with my son was amazing. Not only did she know he was capable  early on; she gave him the skills he needed to succeed."

John F., Harvard Medical School

“One of the most important and difficult aspects of a successful application process is to ensure that the committee can construct a detailed understanding of your unique story through a limited amount of words. Brett Murphy not only provides her expert review from a grammatical standpoint, but examines your writing from an outsider’s lens and works with you to convey a story that best portrays who you are as a candidate. I fully endorse her work and I will certainly utilize her resources in the near future for residency applications.”
