At Strommen, Academia runs in the family. The founder’s father was the Dean of a university for 25 years and his mother is a professor. Here at Strommen we believe in education and will provide the tools to help you achieve your personal goals. We can help you find the schools you want, apply for scholarships, write the perfect application essay, and even get the grades you need in school and the scores you need on the SAT.

The personal essay can be the most important factor in your college application; it is the only way the university can know the real you, beyond the numbers and statistics. We can painlessly create the perfect application essay together. We have helped students with incredibly diverse backgrounds and prospective majors write succinct, effective, and unique application essays. We know the strategies for captivating college admissions staff, but also how to give your essays real substance, and a unique creative touch. Writing your essay will be an enjoyable experience; it will reflect your best qualities and qualifications. I am very good at divining strong points which you might have overlooked as well as finding experience and preparation where you might not have previously seen any.


Jacob – Current Dartmouth L.A. Interviewer, Strommen Expert available in the greater Los Angeles area. Admissions Counseling A-Z.

Hi my name is Jacob, I graduated cum laude from Dartmouth College where I majored in Political Science and Theater. My 3 years of experience in the Dartmouth Admissions Office make me an insider to the application process. I also served on Dartmouth’s Search Committee for the Dean of Admissions; during my time there I interviewed and evaluated applicants from around the world and recruited students from underrepresented regions of the U.S. Beyond this I have studied the admissions philosophies and processes of the nation’s top colleges and universities and gleaned invaluable admissions knowledge by interviewing the leading Deans of Admissions in the country.  I currently serve as an official Dartmouth Alumni Interviewer for Los Angeles. I take a holistic approach when working with students on their college applications. I seek and discover the spark of passion that makes every high school student unique. By working with you one-on-one we craft your individual experiences and interests into compelling and desirable college essays and applications; finding every ounce of applicable and positive qualifications.

Joe: – SAT Expert available in the Valley, North Hollywood, West Side, and the greater Los Angeles area

Hi My name is Joe, I am Strommen Tutoring’s SAT tutoring expert. I graduated in 2005 Magna Cum Laude with a double Major from CU Boulder, I have always been active in academic competitions (in college I was on the team for two state-championship seasons) and scored a perfect 800 on the verbal when I took my SATS. The SATS have changed considerably since then, but in my opinion, they now allow a student much more room to improve. On your first lesson I will administer a small test that will immediately highlight your weak points, and allow us to create an individualized strategy. During the course of our sessions we will also administer full length tests to habituate the student to the format and have evidence of results. Full length tests in conjunction with targeted exercises and strategies have increased my students scores by as much as 300 points. With my approach your son or daughter will gain confidence and look forward to their success as they see their scores linearly increase.
