Pricing

Pricing effective through Oct. 15, 2022. 

HOURLY RATE — $125

Whether your student has an already-written essay they want feedback on or just needs a little help getting started, single-hour blocks let students get the feedback they need before they click Submit. I'll help them identify essay topics, develop outlines, discuss how to approach specific prompts, or I can simply perform a high-level review for typos, grammar, and punctuation.

Billing Details: A deposit of $250 is due at the time of booking. Any outstanding balances will be billed on the first of each month and/or upon project completion.




PERSONAL STATEMENT REVIEW — $250

This review is for students who have written their personal statement and who want an expert perspective and the constructive, actionable feedback they need to help them improve their essay and give them the confidence to click Submit.

I'll evaluate already-written essays for insight, values, style, and more to ensure the final draft hits the mark. Then, we'll meet in person or via Zoom for a 30-minute session to review feedback, ask and answer questions, and discuss next steps.

Billing Details: Payment is due in full at time of booking.




PERSONAL STATEMENT BRAINSTORMING AND TOPIC DEVELOPMENT — $400

Up to 3 Hours

This package is for the student who is a confident writer but needs help identifying a topic for their personal statement. After the student completes brainstorming activities on their own, we'll meet in person or via Zoom to:

  • Discuss the patterns, values, and stories the brainstorming reveals
  • Complete additional brainstorming and freewriting activities as needed
  • Identify a strong, meaningful topic for their personal statement
  • Begin to structure and outline the personal statement

Billing Details: Payment is due in full at time of booking.




PERSONAL STATEMENT END-TO-END COACHING — $850

Unlimited Hours

This package is for the student who wants help identifying a strong, meaningful topic for their personal statement and guidance and support in developing that essay. After the student completes brainstorming assignments on their own, we'll meet in person or via Zoom to:

  • Discuss the patterns, values, and stories the brainstorming reveals
  • Complete additional brainstorming and freewriting activities as needed
  • Explore potential essay structures
  • Choose a personal statement topic
  • Structure and outline the personal statement

Moving forward, we'll collaborate to transform that brainstorming work from a rough draft to a submission-ready essay. I'll provide access to sample essays, an on-demand essay creation course (upon request), and other resources that will help students confidently move forward. Working closely with students via Zoom and Google Docs, I'll help them refine their essays by fine-tuning content; improving theme and flow; and identifying grammar, spelling, and sentence structure issues.

Because this is a fixed-price package, there are no hour counts to keep track of or confusing packages to worry about. We'll work as long as it takes for the student to create an essay they're proud to submit.

Billing Details: A deposit of $500 is due at the time of booking. The balance will be billed one month after the initial invoice date.




DELUXE ESSAY DEVELOPMENT — $2,000

Unlimited Coaching Hours for Personal Statement and Supplementals for up to 2 schools

This package is for students applying to schools that require supplemental essays alongside the personal statement.

Once we've completed the personal statement (going through everything in the End-to-End Coaching package), we'll take advantage of the completed brainstorming work the student has already done to explore and craft supplemental essays for up to 2 schools. Many schools frequently use similar supplemental essay prompts, so we'll also identify opportunities to use the same (or modified) essays for multiple schools. Students will finish with completed essays and a solid understanding of how to research, structure, and write other supplemental essays.

Billing Details: A deposit of $1,000 is due at the time of booking. The balance will be billed in two installments of $500 each, due one month and two months after the initial invoice date.
