Services and Rates

Most colleges require at least one essay, often through the Common Application. Many colleges require more. And, some colleges  ask for “optional” (don’t let that word fool you — they’re not optional!) short answers to quirky questions. Before deciding on what essay tutoring package you would like, it’s a good idea to look at the application requirements of the colleges to which you will be applying.

Brainstorming to get to one First Draft (when you have absolutely no idea where to start!) — $200

Tutoring/Editing — First Draft (when you’ve written a rough first draft and need suggested edits to get it polished, including suggestions in grammar, style and structure)– $200

Each additional draft of the same essay — $50

Short supplemental essays (usually around 250 words) — $100 for first draft edits; $35 for each additional look.

Complete package for one main essay, from brainstorming to final draft (unlimited drafts — although I like to get you there as quickly and painlessly as possible!) — $400

Complete package for all of your college application essays (unlimited number, at any stage of the process, from brainstorming to polishing) — $950

Holiday rates! Yes, I’m afraid I take terrible advantage of you folks who wait ’til the last minute. Above rates are double from December 15-January 5.  (Mostly, it’s because I’m also a professional chorister and December is high singing season, so time is at a premium.)
