Private, Individualized Coaching

For the Common App essay, I charge a single, all-inclusive fee of $2000.

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

In some situations, I am available on an hourly basis at a rate of $225 per hour.

University of California Package

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

All Coaching

Coaching is usually done via Zoom. If a student is in Los Angeles and would like to do their brainstorming session in person, the student is welcome to join me in my home office in Laurel Canyon (barring Covid restrictions). After that, work continues by phone and email.

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