A coach for writing essays? Exactly how does that work?

To begin, we talk, either in person or via phone or Skype. I ask questions. You answer. We look for the ways you learn best, pursue your intellectual curiosities, and engage in the world around you. We explore how you chase goals, think creatively, build bridges, make choices, take action, and respond to real challenge and even failureā€¦and when we find the experience that defines you, we craft an outline.

You take the outline home, write a first draft, and email it to me. I read it and embed comments and more questions. In response, you write a new draft. And we go back and forth via email and phone to elevate and polish the essay until it conveys something compelling and singular and true.
