Staring at a blank computer screen with no idea how to start your five-page paper?

No clue how to turn your essay outline into sentences and paragraphs?

Need someone to teach you the difference between there, their, and they're?

I can help!

I am a professional writer, copywriter, editor, and CRLA certified tutor in Manhattan. I taught two sections of the First-Year Writing Seminar at Boston College and I have continued helping students brainstorm, craft, and refine essays ever since. I have also written 12 nonfiction activity books for Scholastic, as well as a blog about the differences between city and suburban life. I have worked with students of all ages, and I am extremely adept at crafting personal statements for college admissions. My recent clients have been accepted at Harvard, Columbia, and Vanderbilt.

Whether you are writing a personal essay for college admissions, working on executive functioning skills, discussing the causes of World War II for history class, reviewing To Kill a Mockingbird for English class, or simply need help organizing your thoughts and creating a main idea, I'm here for you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

I am available to help clients with college admissions essays, web development, blogging, resume editing and proofreading, and more. I have worked within a college admissions office, alumni office, and campus life office. I have also taught the Freshmen Writing Seminar at Boston College and helped clients gain admission to undergrad and graduate programs at Harvard, Columbia, and Vanderbilt.

College Counseling

I have helped clients complete admissions paperwork and craft essays that have helped them gain admission to schools as prestigious as Harvard, Columbia, and Vanderbilt. I use specific, tangible, storytelling methods to allow admissions departments to see past the grades and test scores to the students themselves. I take the fear and the dread out of this intimidating process!

Public Speaking

I am trained both in English/Writing (MA in English Lit from Boston College) and theater (I have performed Broadway shows in New York and Europe), which make me perfectly suited for creating speeches and coaching people to deliver them.

Voice (Music)

I am a Broadway singer who can help clients learn to interpret a song in both acting and vocal choices. I have made my living as a performer for years and communicate suggestions that are clear, specific, and tangible.

Writing

I have an MA in English Lit from Boston College and have been working in publishing for 12 years.

Here’s the thing: YOUR GRAMMAR AND SPELLING IN YOUR COLLEGE APPLICATION ESSAY MUST, MUST, MUST BE PRACTICALLY PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

You may be thinking, “Rosie, your essay advice is great, but my applications are due in just a few months and I’m applying to nine different schools and they all have different essay prompts and I have soccer and homework and my job and babysitting to do. How am I ever going to finish nine different essays? AHHHH! I’m not going to college!” Okay, that last part got a tad Lifetime movie-ish,... read more
