This is the question at the heart of all college application essays–why should a college accept you? It’s a simple question, but crafting the answer can be challenging. Stressful. I help students navigate the essay-writing process from idea formation through final revision so they submit their best essays, in their own words.
I’ve spent my career telling stories, first as a broadcast journalist and more recently as an author. I’ve taught nonfiction writing at two- and four-year colleges. And I’ve been through the admissions process with my own daughters. Most importantly, I know what admissions officers want—and don’t want—to read.
I am available to assist students with writing personal statements, supplemental essays, activities lists, transfer essays, and scholarship essays. I recognize that each student has unique needs so my coaching sessions are designed to meet students where they are in the essay-development process. Therefore, sessions may include some or all of the following:
- Brainstorming and Mind Mapping
- Editing and revisions
*Summer is the ideal time for juniors to start their college applications, especially for those applying Early Action and Early Decision. Interested in learning more about one-one-one coaching sessions? Please contact me.
