No college expects you to know yourself fully and completely at this point. But they do expect you to have a hint about who you are becoming – and who you want to be.

The best way to tell your story in an application essay is to turn inward and have an honest conversation with yourself about where you’ve been, how it’s shaped you, and where you’d like to be headed.

Our essay coaching is designed to help students craft a compelling essay or personal statement for application to university or college. Working with one of our exceptional writing instructors, your teen will get one-on-one guidance for all written components of the college application. Depending on your needs, our services include:

  • Brainstorming & Purpose
  • Essay Prompts
  • Editing Rough Drafts
  • Evaluation & Feedback
  • Preparation for Submission

We work with students at any point in their essay writing process. We prefer to meet in person for the first session, continuing thereafter via email.

How many appointments will you need?

Depends on your current position.

Are you stuck getting started? Not sure what to write about? Overwhelmed by the number of essays a particular school requires? We might spend three to five hours together, maybe even more, to go from square one to finished essays.

Looking for professional feedback on ideas or drafts of an application essay? One appointment may do.

If you have completed work after our first appointment and have questions, new ideas, drafts, or revisions, we’re here to help.

We offer a free 15-minute consultation to answer your questions prior to an appointment. Send us a note to set that up!

Hourly Rate: $75 (a $150 non-refundable deposit is required to start)
