Private, Individualized Coaching

For the Common App essay, I charge a single, all-inclusive fee of $1500.

For supplemental essays, my fee varies based on each essay’s word limit. Please call or email for more information.

During the first session, I help the student review prompts, brainstorm ideas, choose a story and message, and create an outline. Students then write the first draft and email it to me. I subsequently give feedback by email and phone. We continue working through several drafts until we are both completely satisfied.

Private, Hourly Coaching

I am available on an hourly basis at a rate of $200 per hour.

University of California Package

Because many of my students apply to the University of California, which requires four 350-word Personal Insight essays, I offer a 10% discount to students who hire me to coach them on their Common App essay and four UC essays.

All Coaching

Coaching can be done in person, by phone, or via FaceTime or Zoom.

When a student lives in Los Angeles, the first brainstorming session takes place in person at the student’s home or my home office in Laurel Canyon; after that, work continues by phone and email.

When a student lives outside Los Angeles, travel fees apply.

Further questions about my services or fees, please email me, and I will attempt to meet whatever your particular needs might be.
