My Services

How I Work

I tailor my services to fit your needs. While many of the students I work with choose the comprehensive Common Application Essay Package, those who need help at a particular stage of the writing process—such as finding a topic or revising a draft—prefer to meet with me on an hourly basis.

Common Application Essay Package: $750

  • Free Introductory Conversation
  • Finding a Topic Session (90 minutes)
  • Three Drafting and Revising Sessions (60-90 minutes each)
  • Editing and Proofreading Session (60 minutes)
  • Online support and communication between sessions

It takes students at least three drafts to produce a final essay. We set a schedule at our initial meeting, you email drafts to me before each session, and I provide feedback. You should expect to do hands-on drafting, revising, and editing at each session.

Hourly Rate: $150

I am happy to step in at any stage of the writing process. If you tell me what you need, I can tell you how long it will take me. I work quickly, and will never charge more than we have agreed to. I also work with students on their supplemental essays for individual schools.

Student Working on College Essay

I never write any part of a student’s essay. Instead, I use a variety of strategies to guide students through the process of planning, drafting, and revising their narratives.
