"I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelors of Arts in International Relations and Global Studies. I know how to write critically, creatively, and academically. I written and conducted research for the Department of Defense's National Defense University (based in Washington, DC. I've have been writing essays and personal statements my entire college career! I know what the schools like the University of Texas at Austin WANT to hear. I know how to write essays that specifically cater to both highlighting the students strengths that SHOW not TELL why you as a student will be a great fit at your chosen university. The Goal: My aim is to reduce the ambiguity of the college admissions process - specifically pertaining to the essays. I know it is difficult and stressful time so I will candidly read and process the essay like a potential admissions counselor. The Process: For college admission essays, I first read them out-loud to the student section by section stopping frequently to allow the student to make notes. This is critical because it allows the student to LISTEN to how their writing is read by someone who is NOT familiar with who they are as a student and as a person. From there, we refine the essay with anecdotal experiences, active voice, and strong conclusions that highlight how the student can prove they will be a CONTRIBUTION to the university they are applying to. Timeline and Pricing: I charge $45 per 1 hour session. I find that the best essays are written over the course of several weeks and 2-3 sessions. I prefer to come to your home, a public library, or quiet coffee shop. I look forward to working with you! Christopher"
