I enjoy motivating both high achievers and less driven students to fulfill their potential as writers. Whatever their level of writing proficiency, the following services are available:

 College Application Essays 

Via Zoom, Skype or FaceTime, we'll examine the big picture and important details — whether you need just a push in the right direction, assistance from start to finish, or something in between.

Together, for 60 minutes, we'll:

  • clarify the role of the essay in the application process

  • generate initial content ideas

  • discuss how to structure the essay

  • determine a timeline for completing the essay with minimal stress

Ideal introduction to the college application process for HS juniors, as well as for seniors who don't know where to begin.

Virtual one-on-one conversation = $125


It depends how far along in the process the student is when I'm contacted, so call, text, WhatsApp or email me to discuss procedure and fee.

 High-School Writing Assignments

Share a project with me from any convenient digital device, and I'll walk you through the editing process.

Send me an invitation to share your Google doc. We'll connect via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or audio call and work on your school assignment as a team while viewing the document at the same time. The goal is to achieve an error-free, polished draft representing the best work I can squeeze out of you.

Virtual conversation = $25 for each 15-minute block of time
