Share Your StorY 

You have a personal story that colleges need to know to make your application pop. I’ll help you to discover that story and show you how to communicate it well. The best essays are not scripted or formulaic;  they reveal the heart and soul of the writer.

Our time together will help you to write more confidently and give you a toolkit of skills that will help you shine in college and beyond. My method combines both in-person and online coaching, which works best for student schedules.

Amy helped me turn disconnected ideas into a coherent story. All throughout the process, she was an incredibly helpful guide and tremendously professional. I cannot thank her enough for her endless prompt replies, thoughtful comments and for sharing her expertise as a writer.

What Parents Say

Dear Amy. Thank you SO MUCH! I cannot express how wonderful it is knowing that [my son] had someone as thoughtful and talented as you guiding him this fall. You have been a blessing to our family, and I can’t wait to have you work with my younger daughter.
— parent of a Georgetown Day School student
You have been enormously helpful. My son’s English is actually quite good and a lot of the essay coaches we looked at were all about the grammar, but you really helped him develop ideas and find ways to express himself in a way that was original and interesting but completely true to who is he is.
— parent of a Thomas Jefferson student
[My son] felt much more purposeful and empowered after meeting with you. It really shows in his latest essay. He has high regard for your feedback and skills (as do I).
