Maggie is a graduate of the University of Oxford, where she specialized in French and Russian language and literature. At Oxford Maggie pioneered specialized welfare support for the Oxford LGBTQ+ community as a “Rainbow Peer,” a passion she continues to explore through her voluntary work improving access to higher education for refugees in Japan and the UK. Through these experiences, Maggie has become particularly attuned to the diverse needs and concerns of students as they navigate the process of preparing for university and boarding schools.
After graduating from Oxford, Maggie honed her understanding of international education in Japan by developing an English-language kokusai curriculum for a Tokyo junior high school. Subsequently, Maggie joined the Tokyo Academics team, eager to use her varied background in education to help students from around the world access the schools and universities of their dreams.
Maggie has extensive experience working with students as a consultant and a private tutor. Her work as a consultant has given her invaluable insight into the US, UK, and Japanese admissions systems, while tutoring has granted her insight into students’ motivations and abilities. From supporting those with non-traditional qualifications in their applications to top U.S. and Japanese programs, to mentoring ESL students to produce meaningful and authentic reflections in their personal essays, Maggie is passionate about supporting her students to make confident, competitive applications to the institutions where they will thrive.
Maggie’s students have been accepted into elite universities across the United States, Japan, Canada, and Europe including USC, UC San Diego, UC Davis, UBC, Waseda SILS, Keio GIGA, Sophia FLA, Todai PEAK, Imperial College London, University College London, Bocconi, and many others. Her students have also been accepted to top boarding schools such as Fay School, The Loomis Chaffee School, The Lawrenceville School, Suffield Academy, The Peddie School, Tabor Academy, and The Frederick Gunn School.
