Telling the Story of You

College Admissions Essay Writing

Words define a student: athlete, valedictorian, first-generation, coder, council leader. Words can also tell the story behind the transcript. 

I work with high school juniors and seniors write personal essays that open a window into their unique character. Together, we focus broad experiences into a specific, visceral moment so that admissions officers can picture the student in their academic community.  

My experience includes facilitating in-person and online workshops with Legal Outreach and Summerfuel’s college admissions preparation programs. Read testimonials here

I am also available for private and semi-private coaching. 

Prior students have been accepted at Bates, Baruch, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Fordham, Hampton, Harvard, Marist, Middlebury, Northwestern, NYU, Princeton, Smith, Syracuse, UPenn, URochester, University at Albany, Williams, Wellesley, Yale, and more.
