Thomas Jefferson Essay Coaching

Excellent essays can distinguish your child from the pack of TJ applicants, but many eighth graders feel panicked by the prospect of timed writing.  They rarely understand how to use the steps of the writing process under pressure.  With ten years experience teaching writing and twenty years of freelancing, I have the expertise to give your child the skills and confidence to write the best essays possible for the TJ exam.

My method includes a pre-questionnaire to get to know your child’s passions; a 1.5 hour, one-on-one coaching session; and four online practice workshops with TJ-style prompts.  My style of teaching emphasizes the importance of voice, structure, clarity, and sensory details. Your child’s intelligence and passion for the STEM curriculum at TJ will shine through the essays!
