Awesome Team

  • Leah Levy

    Founder & Head Writing Consultant

    Hi, I’m Leah. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. I write for businesses of all sizes, and help individuals find their creative voices.

    Here are a few stats, for those who like that sort of thing.

    I have

    1. A dual BA in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and Creative Writing from the University of Rochester
    2. A Masters of Fine Arts in Fiction Writing from the University of Washington
    3. Run my own successful businesses tutoring and coaching students of all ages for a number of years.
    4. A number of fiction publications under my belt and hundreds of marketing and small business blogs published. (Yes, literally, hundreds, I don’t understand how it go that high either).

    What I do

    1. Write blogs, in-depth articles, ads and web copy for solopreneurs, small businesses and major corporations such as Microsoft, Macy's, and SimpliSafe. (I’ll even write them for your wedding website, if you so desire, with plenty of flare).
    2. Help applicants apply to private high schools, university, and graduate school find their voice and tell their story so that they can get into their top programs.
    3. Help students of all ages (yep, from elementary school on up to octogenarian grad students) write the best essays and creative stories, novels and play that they can. Want more?

    All of my life I’ve had to deal with two people living inside my body. No, not in a freaky, alien kind of way. In a left brain vs. right brain sort of way.

Who Loves Us

My name is Samantha Green and I adore Leah Kaminsky. When my parents first told me about doing writing tutoring every week I was not excited to pile something new on top of schoolwork and volleyball practice. Before I took tutoring from her my writing was disorganized and scattered. She whipped me into shape in no time and my writing has improved significantly since I started with her. Not only was my journey with Leah challenging but it was also fun. I spent time laughing and making jokes along with improving my writing, which was awesome. Leah Kaminsky is so great, hire her!

Samantha Green, Seattle High School Student,

I had an amazing experience working with Leah on a college application essay. She helped me edit and polish my work so that I could express myself and what I had to say in the best way possible. It was gratifying and rewarding to be able to submit an essay that I was proud of and truly expressed who I was. I have Leah to thank for helping me get into the college of my dreams!

Lilly Adams, Student, Berkeley-Bound Seattleite

Thank you for being there for Azmi this year. I can't tell you how much of an essential part you played in Azmi achieving his dream. I think his love of writing has flourished because of you. You have given him so much more confidence and have been an amazing positive force in his life. Can’t thank you enough.
