I assist students, both locally and remotely, with the writing portion of their college applications.
It is thrilling for me to help someone tell their unique, personal story. Although the college application process can be a stressful time, I've found it can also be a very empowering experience as clients gain self-awareness and find their narrative voice.
Having coached more than 1,000 essays and established a successful track record, I offer students a structured process and constructive feedback so they are able to craft strong personal statements and supplemental essays as well as honors program and scholarship applications.
I assist students at any and all stages of the essay process, from developing a timeline for completing their work to brainstorming topics to drafting and ultimately polishing their writing. For local students in Berkeley, I am happy to meet in person and I also provide a significant amount of coaching remotely (via Skype, phone and email) since I work with clients across the country and internationally.
My own writing experience includes business writing, personal essays and fiction in the form of an 80,000-word novel. In addition to my degree in English from Kenyon College, I've completed coursework in copyediting at the University of Chicago. My introduction to the college admissions world began by partnering with several independent counselors and I was fortunate enough to be mentored by two experienced UC admissions readers. I also lead workshops for students, parents and aspiring essay coaches.
