Writing Coach

Janet worked with my children to complete and polish their college essays. I found her approach to be straightforward and highly effective, and my children enjoyed the way she coached them. She relieved me from the stress of overseeing this important element of the application process and from having to be the “nagging” parent. I highly recommend Janet to anyone looking for a writing coach—for college essays or otherwise.
