About Toni

My passion for helping people put their thoughts and stories into words grew out of my work with adolescents and young adults. Helping to empower people to present themselves, tell their stories, and feel heard and seen through their writing is deeply fulfilling for me. My special talent is in connecting with and listening to students, thereby drawing out the personal stories and details that will showcase their personalities and allow their voices to be clearly heard.

After attending scores of undergraduate college information sessions with myriad admissions officers, I have a clear picture of the key elements of successful college essays. I teach students the best strategies to make their essays stand out and I point out potential pitfalls in the writing process.

I have spent more than two decades coaching people of all ages in many types of writing, including: assignments for high school and college classes; creative writing; professional publications; scientific and technical writing; and resumes and cover letters for employment. I assist students with all parts of the writing process. I am a meticulous and supportive editor and proofreader.

I am available on weekdays, evenings and weekends. I can travel to meet students. I prefer to work face-to-face, but once a project is underway, I can offer support online as well. Please contact me to learn more and to set up an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you!
