WHY HIRE A COLLEGE COACH?

The college admissions process can be intimidating – the search for just the right school, the parts and pieces required for each school’s unique admissions process, and managing all of it in a timely fashion is overwhelming for busy students and families. Even more importantly, however, is knowing exactly how to market yourself as an attractive candidate. Sure, you have the scores and the GPA, but those are just two components of how most colleges evaluate candidates. In a increasingly competitive market, students need to also communicate the “intangibles” that set them apart from the masses.

THAT’S WHERE I COME IN!

My years of expertise as a writing instructor gives me the ability to objectively examine your unique abilities and personality and develop concepts, structures, and content that will make you and your personal statement stand out in a crowded academic world. This ensures that you engage admissions audiences and showcase yourself in the best way possible. Together, we will get all of this done – and more! So let’s get started!
