About Francesca

Hi! I'm Francesca and I'm excited to work with you. There is nothing I love more than helping people tell their stories. I have years of experience working as a teacher and a writing tutor, both for high school students and adults. College Essays are my favorite because we get to spend a lot of focused time crafting a piece that tells the admissions committee about YOU. What makes you special? What do you love? What makes you tick? What have you done that shows the reader those things? There are all kinds of tricks out there, but there is nothing more effective than an authentic, well-written piece that tells the committee everything they need to know. I see it time and time again.

I have worked with students at all levels, and I do quite a bit of work with college and graduate level students on their writing, both academic and personal. I am a writer myself, and I love to see students get to a point where they feel their writing communicates who they truly are.

I have a Doctorate in Education with a focus on writing instruction from Harvard, and a Masters from Stanford. I teach a graduate level personal narrative course (best kind of college essays are personal narrative!) at Harvard each spring. More than anything, I love working with students, and I look forward to getting to know you and helping you achieve your goals.

I look forward to hearing from you. I am easy going and fun (I hope!) and I will push you to be the very best writer you can be!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I have a Doctorate in education from Harvard University. I have worked with many high school students in college selection, many of whom I have also helped with college essays. I feel strongly that there is a good fit for every kind of student and I take seriously the work it takes to find opportunities.

Writing

I have 15 years of experience in essay coaching, editing and teaching. I currently teach writing and writing instruction at Harvard and also in workshops around the country. I have a BA from Stanford University, an MA from the School of Ed at Stanford and a Doctorate from Harvard School of Education focused on writing instruction.

Wonderful tutor

Francesca is awesome. She helped me develop my essays without just writing them for me; she focused on helping me clarify my own ideas and tighten up the writing itself. I highly recommend! Very easy to work with.
