ESSAYS HAVE NEVER MATTERED MORE

Colleges are going test-optional.  

Admissions officers need to learn about who you are in other ways.

Your essays will get more attention than ever before. 

The "college essay" is just the beginning. As college lists have grown, the number of essays my students write has too.

50% of applicants will write 6-10 

30% will write 2-5 

10% will write 11-20 

5% will write one or more than 21 

ESSAYS MATTER MORE THAN EVER

Why Helping Students with College Essays is
 My Favorite Part of the College Process

THE TOPIC

I show anxious students why they can relax about “finding a topic.” In fact, it's not about the topic at all.

BRAINSTORMING

My questions and your answers will zero in on what admission counselors want to know about you.

MY EXPERIENCE

I began teaching students to write in the 1980’s and still enjoy it--more than ever. 

IT'S PERSONAL

Your most effective essays present practical information creatively and uniquely. While I love teaching students how to write persuasive essays about serious topics, college essays are much more fun!

DON'T CRY

Please don’t be upset if the essay you already wrote doesn’t work.  As a professional educational consultant, it's my job to understand the college essay's requirements, not yours. I'll help you through it. 

MOTIVATION

You may think you have "nothing to write about." Everyone has a story to tell--actually lots of stories. I am motivated to help you find as many as you need. 

It's the easiest way to DE-STRESS THE COLLEGE PROCESS

Over the past twelve years, I’ve continued to take essay courses from specialists like Ethan Sawyer, Story2, and the WOW Writing Workshop at continuing education conferences and online. My essay editors are professionally trained as well. Essays are generally the least popular component of the college process for colleagues and students alike, but after working with hundreds of students on their Common Application, Coalition Application, College-Specific, and supplemental essays, I’m still hooked. 

The ESSAYS MATTER MORE THAN EVER PACKAGE gives us four hours to brainstorm ideas, compose thoughts, and write and edit essays.
