Welcome to
College Essay Coaches

Whether you are a student or a parent, you have found a supportive space to guide you and your family through the complete college essay writing process from the 650 word personal statement, to supplemental essays, and beyond.


Our success stories include students who are accepted—and thrive—at universities across the U.S. including UC Berkeley, University of Michigan, Emory, Northeastern, NYU, Villanova and many more.


Our key is that we reduce stress so that the entire family feels nurtured while students are free to express themselves and discover their own voice. Yes, our students have an impressive roster of acceptances, but even more significant to us at College Essay Coaches, is that our students find their confidence and take pride in their work.

What We Do

We customize the college process for each applicant. At our initial, one-on-one intake meeting, we brainstorm ideas by providing writing prompts to determine what is important to each student.


What do you think about the world around you? What inspires you? What makes you laugh? Cry?


We distill the most poignant and meaningful moments in our students' lives that result in impactful and powerful essays — in their own words.


From there, we design individualized plans to get essays completed before deadline. We create a sense of freedom and ease around writing.  One caveat: Expect to laugh a lot!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the process?

Great question. It depends on your own needs. In general, we have had the best success in a three-draft process. This usually takes 5 in-person meetings. We also work remotely via Skype or Google Hangouts, and are always available to troubleshoot if anything comes up in between appointments.

When is the best time to start?

In a perfect world, it's the summer before your college applications are due. But don't worry if your timing is ahead or behind, we also work with deadlines throughout the fall!

How much does this cost? Can I afford it?

We offer great package rates and what we can assure you is that your cost will be substantially less than college itself. Our initial phone consultation is free of charge.

Can you guarantee admission to a specific school?

No. What we can promise you is a great essay that will stand out. It will reflect who you are in ways that your grades, recommendations and standardized tests do not. Your essay will shine and showcase the unique contributions you will make to your top choices. Although we cannot guarantee admission, our track record demonstrates a high rate of success.

How involved are parents in the process?

Parents, we love you. We cordially invite you to take a step back from this process, allowing students to take the lead. Have faith, know they will excel, and you will delight in their accomplishment.
