My Annual FREE College Essay Talk

Are you intimidated by college admission essays? Have writers’ block already?

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be giving my annual free talk on “How to Write Your College Essays” on Sunday, June 3rd, from 7:30 to 9 pm at Arlington Central Library, 1015 Quincy St, Arlington, in their main auditorium. High school juniors and their parents are welcome to come to learn more about the essay process and what colleges expect in both the main and supplemental essays.

In addition, I’ll touch on how the essays fit into the college admissions picture and why students need to reflect deeply before they write. I’ll also share some examples of strong hooks and explore what makes them strong. You can also find out more about my own coaching methodology and philosophy at Expert Essay Coaching, LLC, if you’re interested.

Usually, close to 100 people attend my talk, so come early if you want a seat. I hope to see you there!

The College App Process: A Common Sense Approach

I’m thrilled to share my recent article on the college application process that made the cover of Arlington Magazine! I interviewed lots of great experts — college counselors, college essay coaches, admissions officers, and students who have recently completed the process.

My aim was to reduce the amount of stress and anxiety families feel and help them to navigate the process successfully, realistically, and wisely. Please forward the article to any friends and families who are going through or will go through this challenging time. Much appreciated!

My Annual Free Talk on Writing YOUR College Essay!

Stressed out about college essays? Not sure what to write about or how best to do it?

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll give my annual, one-hour talk on how to write YOUR college essay on May 21st at 7 p.m. at Arlington Central Library, 1015 N. Quincy St., Arlington, VA. All are welcome, but high school juniors and their parents will find it most helpful.

And, yes, it’s absolutely free! Giving this talk is my way of sharing my writing know-how with my cherished community. Most high schools don’t include any instruction on writing personal essays, so many students feel ill-equipped to handle these probing essay questions that demand introspection and story-telling skills. During my talk, I’ll share writing tools you can use to capture that admission officer’s attention and make yourself memorable. I’ll pay special attention to hooks and share some powerful examples from some of my former students’ essays.

I’ve guided hundreds of local students and three of my own children through the essay process and can help you, too! Wherever you are in the college application process, you’ll find my talk tremendously helpful and calming. And, if you decide you’d like more time with me, I still have openings for essay coaching in the 2017-18 season. (I did have to turn students away last year, so please let me know shortly after my talk if you’re interested.)

Yes, most admissions officers truly want to connect to you. Help them by sharing your best insights about yourself in the strongest words possible. Hope to see you in my audience on May 21st!

And please come early — it’s been standing room only the last few years.
