Esther Prokopienko, MA — Instructor

Esther Prokopienko is an East Coast transplant to the Best Coast.  After earning her B.A. and M.A. in English Literature and Composition at the College of St.Rose in Albany, NY, Esther earned a second M.A., this one in Postcolonial Literary and Cultural Studies, at the University of Leeds, in Leeds, England and began a Ph.D. program.  After a few years of living across Europe, Esther found herself in Northern California in 2012 and never wants to leave.


As the Principal of a small K-12 private school in San Francisco and Lead English Teacher, Esther has a passion for working with students from Middle through High School, supporting them in identifying their academic passions and developing strong academic portfolios as they apply for university.


In addition to college prep work in the classroom, Esther teaches summer intensive camps on College Admissions Essay Writing and privately tutors in the subject.  Each autumn she works as a Freshman Application Reader for the University of California system, allowing her the opportunity to see the admissions process from the university's side in addition to her experience working with applicants.


This is Esther's first summer working with Education Unlimited.
