Editing Services & Interview Prep

Hello med and dentistry hopefuls,

Let me take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Emily, and as you can tell by the rest of this website, my background is in English literature, poetry, and critical writing. Over the years, I have been able to apply my English background to application editing and professional school interview prep. Over 90% of the students I’ve worked with have been able to secure spots at highly competitive medical and dental schools across Canada and the United States.

While helping my now-husband get into medical school in 2015, I realized that money is often (unfairly) a ticket to professional success. Students who can afford high-quality private tutors and editors often secure more interviews and achieve higher scores. Prep companies are well aware of how much people are willing to pay to get into their dream school, and they charge accordingly. This leaves people who are unable to afford help at a major disadvantage, robbing them of professional opportunities and the general public of excellent doctors. I’d like to change that.

I have an MA in English and Creative Writing from U of T and over a decade of professional editing experience. I have been a community member interview panelist at Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, and in 2020, I offered free interview help to anybody who had their professional school interview moved to an online format due to the Covid19 pandemic. I am genuinely passionate about helping people succeed, and I am committed to working within your budget.

My husband, Dr. Ariel Gershon, graduated from Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry in 2019. He is currently a physician in Toronto. We often work together to help students prepare for medical and dental school interviews. 

Here are some of the unique pricing options I offer to keep my services affordable:

  • Each time you refer a friend to me who ends up paying for application editing or 6 sessions of interview prep, you get either a free interview prep session or 3 free pages of application editing.
  • I will always provide free prep spreadsheets and informational material.
  • You can always consult with me for free before you begin writing your application (this cuts down on the time it takes me to edit your work, and it means that there’s less for you to revise later on).
  • Each round of editing includes 2 passes. I will edit your work and send it back to you for you to revise. Then you will send your revised work back to me and I will edit it again.
  • I always offer a free 30-minute interview prep session before you decide to sign up for a package.

I regularly post application/interview tips and tricks on my Instagram page.
