Know someone who’s applying to college and needs a college essay consultant?

Since 2018, I have offered college counseling both in a school and as an independent college consultant. Each year, I provide application and essay guidance to approximately 100 students. I teach a live online college essay (Common App personal statement) workshop and provide individualized support until my students’ essays dazzle.

I particularly love my workshop (based on Ethan Sawyer’s College Essay Essentials) because it celebrates small things. It helps students notice more. See detail. Write with imagery.

I am excited to offer the two-hour college essay format workshop for high school students on the Outschool platform as a college essay consultant. Students and families can sign up here.

I’m also in the process of converting my writing basics course for the Outschool platform. The class will feature bite-sized lessons about grammar, conventions, and common document types. I’ll update this page when it’s ready.

In the meantime, here is a list of my small grammar posts:

Rules of the Semicolon

Rules for Apostrophes

Of or Have?

Supposed vs. Suppose
