What People Are Saying:

Deana Barone is truly the best tutor I have ever worked with by miles... She helped me every step of the way with my college applications. My essays even became fun because I was writing about things I was passionate about, in my own words... And -- I got into all my top choices!...I love love love working with Deana on anything creative...She helps make ideas become reality! Her speciality is storytelling and captivating an audience.

Talita Von Furstenberg

I don’t know what I would’ve done without Deana Barone... The essays were completely overwhelming at first, and I was procrastinating everything, but Deana helped me plan and organize getting them done. Then she helped me figure out what I actually cared about so I could write about stuff that reflected the true me... with her guidance I created z portfolio that set me up for my first entrepreneurial plans. She also worked with me on my CV and made me see how much I’d accomplished! I got into my first choice college, and can’t wait to go.
