College Applications

I work with high-school seniors on every written aspect of their college applications, from the personal statement and short answer for the Common Application to the University of California’s specific prompts. I help them generate ideas for compelling essays about their own experiences and interests, as well as working through as many drafts of individual essays and short answers as are necessary. I also help to demystify the supplemental essay questions now included in most institutions’ applications (“Why NYU?”, for example). Working with me, students will—in their own voices—put together application materials that will reveal who they really are and what matters to them.
