How Many Appointments Will You Need?
One Appointment May Be All It Takes!
Stuck getting started on a application essay or school project? Looking for professional feedback on ideas, a draft for an application essay, or a school assignment? One Essay Coaching appointment may do.
Two or More Appointments May Be Best When…
If you have completed work after our first appointment in the form of new ideas, questions, drafts or revisions, come for a second session. That is where the long-term benefits of Essay Coaching begins.
Your First Appointment in the Package
The five-appointment package covers the average number of appointments it takes to write one winning essay, but one student wrote eight essays during her five sessions!
There are two scenarios for your first appointment, based on your answer to this question: “Do you have a draft?” The good news is we can work well together with ANY answer to this question!
“I Have a First Draft Already…”
After you read your draft out loud, we will chat about the strengths of your essay. We will decide together how to revise your draft or whether you might want to choose to start over with a stronger topic. For revisions, you’ll hear new and specific ideas about how to strengthen your draft, motivating you to make new edits. At the end of this first appointment, you’ll know whether you need more appointments or whether you’re now prepared to move forward on your own.

“I’m Still Thinking…”
If you have no written words yet, no problem! Our first appointment will be geared towards finding a strong essay topic. Most students leave this first session with one or more excellent essay ideas.

Appointments Two Through Five
Motivated and excited to move forward after the first session? In sessions two through five (and beyond), we will edit and polish your essay(s). Sometimes we even write together during the session, and the written pages start to pile up!
