College Admission Essays
There is no need to hire expensive tutoring agencies or go it alone and wonder if you have written something that truly demonstrates how interesting you are. You and I together will discover the right “story” to tell and will write it in a way that best expresses the topic and presents you as intriguing, insightful, caring, motivated, intelligent and, above all, likeable and an asset to the college community.

We can meet at my home or yours, and, typically, the later stages of the essay can progress through email. Skype and zoom are also options.

The admissions’ essays can be an enjoyable exercise in self-discovery and self-expression.
