Pricing and the Process:

 

It is difficult to know in advance how much time it will take a student to produce a stand-out college essay. The process always involves several drafts -- in fact, the more drafts, the better the essay! I never want to put parents or students in the awkward position of being nervous about the cost for the amount of time spent or number of drafts reviewed. It is much better for everyone to put in as much time as it takes to produce the best essays possible. This is why I don't charge an hourly rate for essay coaching. For the fees listed above, I will spend as much time as necessary helping students write the strongest college essays possible. I use Google Docs and work remotely most often, but am always available via phone, FaceTime, Zoom or in person if students need a more personal consultation. I also realize this process is quite fluid and I will work with you to find the best price and package for your student.
