My Services

One of the most daunting and stressful tasks a high school student will face in the college application process is writing the college admissions essay or personal statement. 

I’m here to help you with that.

I offer one-on-one essay mentoring services for creating a stellar college application essay, via phone consultation and e-mail.  My service is highly personalized to each student, and geared to precisely where you are in the essay writing process.  (See below for more details.)

I work with students who are serious about crafting a stellar essay and who write their own essays.  (This is not an essay-writing service; what I offer is topic selection, writing, and editing & revising help and strategic advice, through intensive one-on-one work with each student.)


It all starts with where you are in the process – are you at the brainstorming topic ideas stage? The pre-writing/first draft stage? Or maybe you have your first draft complete, and could use some editing help, or guidance on revisions and strategic improvements?

Here’s what I do:

Brainstorming/Intake Session:  This is where I help you with brainstorming and topic selection. We will do this through a series of questions and brainstorming prompts that will help us identify the unique qualities and experiences you bring to the table that set you apart from the other candidates out there.  (1 hour)

Writing Session:  In this session, you’ll get guidance on your rough draft.  We’ll look at strong sample essays and discuss what makes them work.  We’ll also go over writing mechanics – outline, structure, composition, style, etc.  (1 hour)

Revising/Editing Session:  In this session, you’ll get guidance on revising, editing and polishing your essays, and detailed advice on strategic improvements.  (1 hour)

The sessions are fluid, meaning, depending on your needs and where you are the writing process, each session may not take the full hour, or may take longer.  You may need only one of the sessions, or one of each, again, depending on where you are in the process and how much work you do outside of our sessions.

We will make the determination of where you are in the process and what services you need in our initial phone consultation, which is a 20 minute session and is FREE of charge.

Pricing (after initial 20 minute consult):
$60 per hour

Payment is made securely through Paypal. You do NOT need to have your own Paypal account to pay via PayPal. 

To get the process started, please e-mail me at  (I usually respond within 24 hours.)

I’m looking forward to helping you craft a stellar college application essay!
