can be hard. Doing it alone, when you don't have the right one-on-one help, can make it harder. Whether you need help with the college admission process (essays, strategy, SAT
writing, school choice) or writing a high school or college English
essay (or a corporate manual, speech
or grant proposal), I can make the process easier for you. I understand different thinking styles, and tailor my approach to them whenever possible. My standards are high, but you won't mind; I guarantee some laughter along with a better sense of the written word.
Sessions can take place at my office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, or, during the summer, in parts of the Hamptons (Remsenberg to Southampton).
I have helped many students find the right fit, "write the right essay," and navigate the admissions process. I have served as a volunteer college admissions counselor in a NYC high school, and as an applicant interviewer, alumni ambassador and college fair representative for an Ivy League University. As a writing expert, I have tutored middle and high school clients, taught freshmen at a local university, and led government executives in deductive writing programs. I have written marketing
and publicity copy for a major retailer, speeches for a CEO, grant proposals for non-profit organizations, and meta-analyses of public policy for state and local government.
My education: B.A. in English from Cornell University and Masters degree from Columbia University.
