About Molly

I have been teaching English with a focus on writing, literature and rhetoric for decades. This winter I will be teaching two sections of English 104-writing and rhetoric at DePaul University and I was an English teacher (AP. Creative Writing, Critical thinking) at two excellent high schools on the North Shore. A college essay expert, I can help students choose their topic, brainstorm and write an excellent college admission essay. I majored in history in college.

My relationship with my clients is based on the ability to listen, communicate and support. I am a three-time published novelist and screenwriter, a writing coach and have had experience with students on the spectrum.

I have two neurotic cats, an iron worker husband and any number of interests.

A Fantastic Start — Though this was just our first lesson, Molly has already helped me pick which common app prompt I'd like to use, and helped me expand on topic ideas. I honestly don't think I'd be able to have such a solid start without her! ...
