Essay Coach

Your tone, your style, your essay.

The personal is essay is more than simply an answer to a question. It is an opportunity to tell your tale. Uncover the perfect anecdote through which you see the world. Make the reader hear your voice. Showcase who you are by letting yourself shine through your writing. Turn up your voice and emphasize your unique perspective.

We’ll approach the prompt for what it truly is: An opportunity for you to do you.


The Process

Each hour-long session is customized based on your goals, needs and progress.

  1. The first session – typically focuses on identifying your hook – the story you’ll use to showcase your perspective as it relates to the essay prompt.
  2. We’ll meet one-on-one (small group sessions available upon request) refining the story you want to tell. You’ll address the prompt through your personal lens.
  3. Over the course of our work together you will distill your essay down until it represents the most confident and genuine version of you.


My daughter really enjoyed working with Daphne on her college essays. We are very impressed with the final product. The bonus was she was very motivated for her meetings, and we didn’t have to nag her!
