College Essay Editing

Need help getting your teen’s admissions essay to the finish line (or off the ground in the first place)? You came to the right place.

I offer a four-session package (in-person or Zoom) that takes students from the beginnings of an idea to a finished, ready-to-submit essay. Here’s how it works:

Session 1: Brainstorming a compelling, original topic and thoroughly outlining a draft. (60 minutes)

Session 2: Reviewing a first draft and providing detailed, actionable feedback for revision. (45 minutes)

Session 3: Reviewing a second draft and providing additional constructive feedback. (45 minutes)

Session 4: Reviewing a third draft (if needed) and/or reviewing supplemental essays. (45 minutes)

*Additional or specialized sessions available upon request*

Why choose me?

For one thing, I write and edit personal essays for a living (more on that here). For another? I know exactly what colleges are looking for.

Through both my two years working as an Essay Specialist for the international writing education company Prompt and my continued 1:1 coaching sessions with students via the renowned Gotham Writers Workshop, I’ve edited hundreds of college admissions essays and supplements. Students I’ve assisted have gone on to every Ivy League and dozens of other top-tier schools, along with graduate programs, competitive internships, and more.

I work with students at every writing level, so whether your child is an A.P. English superstar or thinks college essays are the stuff of nightmares, I’m happy to help.
