Ali Dennis holds a BA in Honours English from the University of Victoria and an Editing Certificate from Simon Fraser University. As a Writing Coach, Ali aims to equip students with the tools and confidence they need to achieve success throughout the university application season and beyond. By providing positive feedback and specific suggestions for growth, she supports students as they elevate their writing skills to new heights.

Ali enjoys helping students recognize their own unique stories and championing them through each step of the process.
