College Essay Coaching

I have always been curious about people; what brings someone meaning and contentment in life. It began early on, in childhood, when I longed for everyone around me to be happy.

This curiosity was the reason I studied Psychology in college and pursued a Master’s  Degree in Education. I taught in private and public schools. For a while I owned a knitting shop and taught classes there as well. What mattered to me more than teaching any specific subject matter was noticing what made children and adults come alive and reflecting back this observation.

I am also a mom to four boys. I have found their teenage years to be the most compelling —  watching them grow into their fuller self while also noticing childhood inclinations expressed in more sophisticated ways.

I believe that my work as a writing tutor and college workshop facilitator is a meaningful way to help young adults take notice of who they are and where they want to go.

This knowing, I believe, is the first important step to a contented life.

I have worked with students who have been accepted to a wide variety of colleges and universities. Some of them include:

  • Williams College
  • Columbia Law School
  • Duke University
  • Northwestern University
  • Rutgers-School of Pharmacy
  • Georgetown University
  • Johns Hopkins University
