Consultation (15 mins) FREE
The first step in your essay coaching process, a free 15-min consultation lets us meet each other via Zoom, ask questions, and determine which services will be most helpful. Parents are welcome to attend.
This service is ideal for students who have not started a draft yet. The Brainstorming Session helps to unearth a student’s stories and experiences while contextualizing them in the structure of a personal essay. This session can also help students who are stuck between two or more ideas for an essay. Held on Zoom.
Students do not attend the Evaluation. You are booking Kate’s time during which she will read and reread a draft, mark it up, make suggestions, and create a plan for moving forward with a revision. Often, students follow up their Evaluation with a Coaching Session.
This service is often the follow up to an Evaluation. Students will receive real-time feedback to revision efforts and “walk through” their draft while writing in real-time. This session is helpful when time is of the essence and a student is ready to finalize their draft. Most students need between 1-3 coaching sessions. Held on Zoom.
*** These services can be applied to the Common App essay and any supplemental essays that a student is required to write.
