Bonus! Free Resume Review

Want to get your essays done in a month?  Here’s a great incentive.

There are three basic steps to completing an essay.  Step one, plan the essay.  Step two, draft the essay.  Step three, revise the essay.  Pretty simple, right?  There’s just one problem.  Time.

This month, lots of students are working with me to plan their essays.   We talk about their interests, we go over the prompts, we come up with great topic ideas.  They go home super excited and ready to write.  Then, guess what happens?  They get busy.

Family vacations.  Fun with friends.  Summer jobs.

As a way to encourage students to get their essays done, I am offering a special incentive: a free resume review for any student who completes all three steps of the essay writing process with me in four weeks or less.

Why a resume review?  Because this ONE document actually serves THREE very important purposes.  Students need a resume to get jobs, get into colleges, and get scholarships.

Sadly, students don’t receive much training when it comes to crafting resumes.  They don’t know how to organize their information, how to write about their experience, or how to properly format.

A resume is much more than a checklist of activities and achievements.  It’s an opportunity to tell your story.  That story can help you land an internship, get you into the college of your dreams, and get you money to pay for it.  Let me help you get it right!

Private Tutoring

Need help crafting a personal story for the UC Personal Insight Questions or a private college Common Application essay?  It’s as easy as one, two, three!

If you haven’t started yet, go to step one.  If you already have a draft, go to step two.  If you don’t know where to begin, let’s talk.

Step One: Planning Meeting

For students who need ideas and inspiration.  Find out what admissions officers are looking for, discover which UC question or Common App prompt best fits your background, and learn how to turn your personal experience into great stories!

Step Two: Initial Draft Review

For students who completed a draft at school or with a college counselor (rate reduced for students who worked with me to complete step one above).  Email me your draft and get detailed feedback in just a few days.

Step Three: Follow-Up Draft Review

For students who worked with me to complete step two above.  Email me your revised draft for feedback on your progress.  The process is the same as above and may be repeated as many times as needed.
