Led by her passion for policy debate, Elaine attended Georgetown University, where she double majored in English Literature and Chinese and minored in Studio Art. While in school, she was awarded the Certificate For Outstanding Academic Achievement in Chinese. During her tenure at Georgetown, Elaine worked independently with students on their undergraduate and graduate school application packages. After graduating, she moved to Japan and continued her work with students, teaching English in local elementary and junior high schools in Gotsu, Shimane.
Through her six years of experience as an advisor working with students on their undergraduate and graduate applications and two years as an educator, Elaine developed her teaching philosophy that centers around empowering students to develop their voice and realize their unique capabilities. From providing over five years of guidance to a high school student through the undergraduate admissions process and eventually helping them secure admissions to Harvard, Stanford, and Yale Law, to mentoring a student with academic challenges to navigate the complexities of top-tier admissions applications and essays, Elaine encourages students to gain confidence in themselves and their storytelling to prepare them for their academic careers and beyond.
Elaine has proudly supported students in gaining admission to schools including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Cornell, Georgetown, Amherst, UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, The University of Virginia, T14 law schools, and more.
