College Essay Coaching

Let’s get your kid into college!

We all know how important college essays can be. By now the SAT scores are set in stone, as are your child’s grades. The college essay is a student's last chance to shine before a jaded admissions officer. A firecracker of an essay will make your child's application stand out and be noticed. It’s the one variable you can still control—and a critical one at that—in an intensively competitive application process.

Why choose College Essay Coaching? I’m a professional author with an extensive journalism background. I’ve worked for the Los Angeles Times, Des Moines Register and ABC News, written for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and Smithsonian Magazine (among others), and have a master’s degree from the world’s top journalism school—Columbia University. I will work one-on-one with your child—by phone, email and Skype—to help him or her formulate the very best personal essay possible. I will not write your child’s essay, but I will take much of the stress and uncertainly out of the process. We will brainstorm together, sketch out an outline, and then whip successive drafts into shape until we have a perfectly edited college essay that wows the admission officers.

Not only will your child have a distinct edge by working with a professional author, he or she will become a far better and more confident writer in the process—and that’s the best kind of preparation for excelling academically in college.
