I just received my Masters of Fine Arts in Non-Fiction at the prestigious New School. You might have spied my work published on SlashFilm, The Cougar, The Mary Sue, Gurl, Birth Movies Death, or Texas Living magazine. I have checked hundreds of essays, short stories, poems, and college application personal statements. My coaching methods frequently involve quick, succinct impromptu feedback with critique and positive reinforcement. Essays, short stories, poems, college applications, screenplays, you name them!
When reviewing college admission essays, I ascertain that the student/applicant maximizes all potential selling-points for their narrative. If you just want to hand over an essay without a meet-up session, I charge about 1 hour for 100-900 words and charge more for additional extensive work.
Even in English classes at the University of Houston, I was the class bookworm. I was a known feedback giver among fellow Creative Writers, whether it was skimming for grammar or the logistics of the narrative storytelling. I analyze classics from the pop-cultural hit Harry Potter to the conventional classics like the Scarlet Letter.
Although my days of taking ACTs and SATs have long been past, that doesn't mean I don't have the deductive tricks (courtesy of Latin classes) to test sections involving reading comprehension (I applied these tricks to the pesky vocabulary section).
I was a history gal in my circle of friends in high school and was often approached to guide them through the history materials. I may be no Lin-Manuel Miranda, but I can compose poetic trivia of history to memorable facts about history. I possess a BA in filmmaking and have script consulted for Houston short films. And I know Final Cut 10 and Adobe Premiere. I have tweaked screenplays and treatments.
I enjoy utilizing the Wyzant online platform to have examples on display, but I can meet with fellow students in-person, although I do have a policy of not meeting new clients in their homes for safety measures. Please also mind the 24-hr canc

The correction and revision tips provided were specific and helpful. Provides insights into what the reader can think by reviewing the essay together. The amount of time spent was well worth it.
