What’s it cost?

Free half-hour consultation. If you aren’t sure you need the services of an essay coach, I can meet with you and your parents to discuss how I might be of help. At that point, you can decide on whether to purchase a package or to pay per session.

Basic Package 

If you already have rough drafts of your essays written, I recommend the basic package: $750 for five one-hour sessions of one-on-one coaching time. At the conclusion of these five hours, you will have one or two polished essays ready for submission. If you need additional time, we will continue at the same rate of $150 per hour.

      Winter Discount on Basic Package Price: $600

Starting-from-Scratch Package

If you aren’t sure where you want to apply and you haven’t yet taken a stab at writing any college application essays, I recommend this package: 10 hours for $1,250. We will identify reach schools, match schools, and safety schools. You will complete at least one Common App essay and one school-specific essay. In addition, we will look at scholarships that may be available to you.

      Winter Discount on Starting-from-Scratch Package Price: $1,000

Hourly consultations

You can set up hourly sessions a la carte for $175 per hour. 

      Winter Discount Price: $150/hour

I prefer to coach in person, but if you live more than an 90 minutes away from Annapolis, we can use video conferencing and Google docs to work through your essays. On the Eastern Shore, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, and Kent counties are within my face-to-face range. The District of Columbia and Prince George’s, Howard, and Montgomery counties are also close enough for face-to-face meetings.

Additional discounts may be available.
