Coaching Rates


50-minute session: $100

We primarily offer coaching in support of work on specific manuscripts.



Applying for college or graduate school can be a stressful and tedious process, particularly given that admissions essays often ask you to construct a convincing narrative about your personal path. Applying for jobs can be similarly exhausting, requiring that you sell yourself for a position on paper, often in very little space. We offer two packages to help you to complete the writing process with confidence and precision. Each package includes our review of either (1) a cover letter and resume, or (2) an admissions essay or personal statement of up to 1,500 words.

Package 1 - a fresh pair of eyes:  $110

This package includes 2 rounds of editing on your personal statement or resume/cover letter. The writing coach will make one round of suggested line edits, detailed comments, and questions, and send the material back to the writer. After the writer makes changes to the statement, the consultant will review and make final line edits and suggestions.

Package 2 - review and confer: $175

This package includes one live coaching session (online or by phone) in addition to the two rounds of editing described above.

Last-minute package requests incur a $50 expedite fee.
