Hi there,

I'm a highly effective personal essay writing coach and have helped former students, friends and family members write countless essays, proposals and speeches over the past ten years. Among those that I have assisted with personal essays for college or grad school, I have a 100% success rate meaning that 100% of my clients have successfully gained admittance into the college, graduate program or other educational institution of their choice. I think this has been due, in no small part, to their great essays.

I'm a political scientist by training and currently work as a consultant to international-focused research and policy institutes in the D.C. area where I design, plan and implement evaluations of international development programming across the world. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from Columbia University where I began playing a large role in the development of student writing as a TA and professor.

I love to help people shape and tailor personal and professional narratives that effectively communicate who they are and what they want out of life, out of their company and out of their research goals. My writing coaching style is very personable, and based on the idea that "writing is a tool, not a task." I feel that it is very important to spend one-on-one time with clients to get to know them so that the wonderful person I meet in person, is the wonderful person someone else meets on paper. I look forward to helping you use the tool of writing to craft your voice.

Best,
Patrice
