After graduating from Princeton, I spent years in the business world as a freelance writer and software entrepreneur until I decided to embark on a career in teaching; specifically, coaching students on their college essays.
For the last few years, I have helped dozens of young people find their voices and produce essays that literally brought tears to their parents' eyes (in a good way).
Essays that also helped them get into some incredible schools.

Please be aware that while I do occasionally work as a ghost writer for adult clients, I will never write an essay for a student. If this is your interest, please contact someone else. I coach, they write.
You should also know one thing: ghost-written college essays never work.
Many admissions directors have told me they know instantly when an essay is not the work of the student. I know instantly too, when parents write for their kids.
If you want a good result, let me help your child produce his/her best work. It's the right thing to do, the right lesson to teach, and the best way to avoid rejection.
For a free consultation or simply to discuss your student's needs, send me a quick note with your name, email and best way to reach you. I work with clients all over the US and abroad.
