College/Graduate School Essay Coach and Writing Tutor

Writing, College Essay Coaching, Homework Coaching

My goal is to help students become confident writers. My low-key style helps me connect easily with students as they learn analytical writing and increase their writing proficiency skills.

Additionally, during the college and graduate school application seasons, I help students brainstorm ideas and evaluate their drafts with timely, extensive written feedback. In that way I help my students prepare the best possible responses to the various prompts while they retain their unique voice. With my guidance, my students have successfully stayed on task and perfected their essays, ultimately obtaining positive results. For more information about me and to read testimonials from students and parents, visit and I meet with students at my North Berkeley office. Further, distance is not an issue as I also meet with students using Skype, FaceTime, or other virtual meeting sites.

Please contact me at 510.847.3789 to discuss how I can help your daughter or son achieve their writing potential or write fabulous college or graduate school application essays.
