College Essay Tutoring

The college essay is your opportunity to showcase your individual talents, unique experiences, and precise writing skills. You have only 650 words max (500 is a more realistic goal); make them count. Avoid being too vague, covering too many topics, or writing a stereotypical essay. Through careful guidance, I will help you deepen your writing with imagery, sensory description, and metaphor. We will begin with brainstorming before developing multiple drafts that focus on micro and macro revisions.
