“Your college essay is undoubtedly one of the most important papers you will write—it can also be the most frustrating. I needed someone to guide my writing and Lane was the perfect solution. She was able to tap into some of my most personal experiences and make me feel comfortable and inspired to write about them. Through our sessions we were able to make my essay concise, direct, and mature—while still maintaining its personal nature. Together we were able to cultivate a good essay into a great one. You’re applying against hundreds to thousands of students and have only 500 words to write something memorable. Lane is exceptional at discovering and building on your strengths to show your dream school who you are and why you are the student for them. I was academically accepted into all nine schools I applied to and am attending my dream school in the fall—trust me, it’s worth it!”

– Celina James, Oklahoma City University

“Daunting, high stakes, stressful… It’s no secret that these words fully capture the feelings of the college application process. After all, your next four years depends on this seemingly difficult and foreign application. However, after receiving assistance from Lane Rosencrans, the application process was anything but difficult or stressful. Her ability to deconstruct prompts, identify my true voice in writing, and her knowledge on the application process allowed me to enjoy my senior year free of stress and worry. Many counselors, teachers, and students have the wrong idea of what an admissions essay should include. Lane, on the other hand, knows what an essay’s style and content should look like, and she worked effectively with me to achieve that. This yielded a more genuine and effective essay for me. The essay is a crucial part of the application process and allows admissions officers a glimpse at the type of student you are. By working with Lane, I was easily able to paint a picture of who I am as a student as well as learn how to write effectively. And I credit my admissions into two ivy-leagues and multiple tier-one schools to this essay that Lane helped me create and perfect. Words cannot express how grateful I am for her services and help, and I would recommend her to anyone who is interested in perfecting their college application or even just strengthening their writing skills.”

“Referring to Lane by her first name feels so weird to me as she was my 11th grade teacher! While ending up in her English class was through a randomized computer assignment, I could not be more grateful for landing there. She realized my passions and helped me put them into words. My writing skills improved so much that year that it pushed me to go into English education myself! While I think anyone can learn grammar and phrasing for a college essay, what you cannot learn is how to truly connect with your students, and that is what Lane did with me. I appreciate so much the time she would take after class to ask how I was doing as a student and a friend. It is this intentionality that makes her an excellent mentor for both papers and life skills. She is very professional and excellent at what she does. In fact, I want her to help me with my graduate school applications! If you’re lost on where to start or just looking for a fresh pair of eyes, I highly recommend using Lane’s services, as you will have a successful and worthwhile experience.”

“I cannot express enough great things about Ms. Faulkner! She has a passion for educating students to learn, not to pass a test. Her kind soul makes you look forward to learning with her – and she is a woman of her word. You will never feel any judgement from her. She cares about your well-being just as much as her desire for you to succeed. I am attending Austin Peay State University. Recently I have started writing for my school’s chapter of the Odyssey, which is an online blog that gives content writers creative freedom. Ms. Faulkner has lead me to this path when she reminded me that your writing should not be limited to literary writing. Creative writing is just as important. She has inspired me to use my voice to speak on issues that matter. I am so blessed that I was able to have her as my teacher my junior year of high school. She always made sure that all of her students had more than enough resources when it came to being prepared about college, and how to apply. Because of Ms. Faulkner, I understand the importance of having a desire to learn, and that everyone has a voice that matters.”

– Shaina Wild, Austin Peay State University



“When I was looking to make a transition in my career I contacted Lane to help me review and update my resume. She was extremely friendly and patient with me and offered to assist as little or as much as I desired. We ended up completely reworking my resume. When I then began negotiating for the position I wanted Lane assisted me in email correspondence with the owner. I’m confident that her input and assistance played a pivotal role in getting the offer I wanted. She is a caring, sweet person who brings a smile to your face every time you talk to her. We formed a bond of trust extremely quickly and I trusted her as a confidant during this process instead of just another resume help service. She truly went above and beyond to do the very best she could for me. I highly recommend Lane for any professional writing or presentation needs you may have – you won’t find anyone better.”

“Going into college I was not hit with a huge reality check. I did not feel underprepared or like a coddled child entering into adulthood. I remember feeling panic amongst my classmates when they realized this hands off, freethinking environment had no safety net. Though flooded will new social challenges and rigorous schedules college challenged, but didn’t break me. I felt raw but strong as a writer. I didn’t feel intimidated by strict deadlines or high expectations. I knew that at the end of the day I had basic tools needed to complete any assignment. I can honestly say that is due to having Lane Faulkner as a teacher. Every time I would sit down to write a paper in my collegiate career, I would revisit the tools and structures taught in her class. I never felt alone in my writing process. When something felt confusing for me, she found different ways to explain it. Any road block turned into an opportunity to learn a new skill. Any challenged was only preparation for the future. I cannot recommend her enough!”

– Victoria Stephens, Middle Tennessee State University



“In my opinion, an English teacher is one of the greatest assets leading into college. The ability to craft logical and grammatically correct papers/documents pays off ten-fold in college and the work world. Lane has helped hundreds of students, including myself, create unique and competitive college entrance essays. The willingness and patience to help each individual student makes her an incredible resource and friend.”

– Josh Ragland, Belmont University, B.B.A. 2015, HCA Physician Services Group, Accountant
“Applying to college represents a daunting task for any rising adult. Balancing the senior year schedule with high school social scene lasts leaves little room for writer’s block on countless empty essays that will determine how many loans you take out in a place that you will spend four years of your life. Wonderfully, my experience with Mrs. Faulkner’s individualized and intelligent approach to the unique stamp I wanted to leave on the college admissions process allowed me to open every admittance letter with confidence. Because of the quality of my essays, guided immensely by Mrs. Faulkner, I am able to not only follow my passion for chemistry, but also to do so in specialized programs cushioned by multiple scholarships.”

“Strong, smart, savvy, and extremely competent! These are just a few of the words I would use to describe Lane. I have worked with her extensively and she continues to impress me with her drive and passion for life and work. She is a woman who gets things done – and gets them done well. She knows how to complete a project on time and with great polish and authority. No matter if you hire her for professional writing work or to help your child get into an Ivy League college, she will absolutely not let you down. The only thing better than her work is her character. I would recommend Lane to anyone!”
