Private Coaching

College Essay Coaching

A good personal statement provides colleges with a strong writing sample. A GREAT personal statement acts as a marketing piece showcasing a potential student’s desirable qualities to admissions officers.

  • I work intently with high school juniors and seniors to identify meaningful personal stories that highlight their unique character and voice. My goal is for students to both complete any essays required for their college applications and gain confidence in their writing.
  • Professional experience includes working as a College Essay Writing Instructor for Summerfuel’s CAP Columbia program and Legal Outreach—a legal education non-profit that prepares urban youth from underserved communities in NYC for college.
  • Past students have been accepted to Brown, Bates, Columbia, Fordham, Harvard, Middlebury, Northwestern, NYU, Smith, UPenn, URochester, Williams, Wellesley, Yale, and more.


  • $100 per hour for in-person sessions.
  • $75 for a 30-minute session via phone or video chat. Note: Drafts must be sent 3 days in advance.
  • $50 dollars to read an essay and provide feedback via email.
