Rhetorical precision is very important for academic writing, and it is especially challenging for international students and professionals. Deirdre was incredibly patient and efficient with my revisions. She helped not only with my Personal Statements but also with my short stories since I was applying for an MFA degree in film directing. She tweaked my wording and explained the culture to me to make my stories flow authentically to the readers. With her effective revisions of my application materials, I was successfully enrolled at my dream institute, AFI Conservatory.
