Whether you are a student who needs help writing a paper, a college applicant who wants to nail the personal essay, a learner who wants to perfect the art of writing for any subject, or a professional who needs help generating copy or creating the perfect resume, my 20+ years in the teaching, writing and tutoring industry working with students and adults makes me the perfect candidate to give you the patient guidance and valuable feedback you need to succeed. We can connect via email and through shared documents, to create the perfect finished product.
RESUMES & COVER LETTERS
Whether you are a seasoned professional with a great deal of career experience or someone new to the workforce, having a strong resume and cover letter is critical to putting your best foot forward when applying for a job. I can help you create a resume and cover letter that captures who you are and all that you bring to the table in order to help you land job offers. Even if you aren't currently job searching, I can help you update your resume so that you will be ready to throw your hat into the ring when that perfect career opportunity arises.
COLLEGE ESSAY PREP
I know how daunting the entire college application process can be for students and their families. Taking it one step at a time makes it manageable. In this era of proficiency-based grading and with an increasing amount of colleges becoming test score optional, the college essay matters more than ever. I will work with you to choose the topic that best reveals your strengths to the college admissions officers, and help you put your thoughts into all the right words.
EDITING FOR PROFESSIONALS
Let's face it, writing isn't everyone's passion. What takes some people a few minutes can take others agonizing hours. If you need help writing copy for any aspect of your professional life, I can help put your ideas and thoughts into clean writing. We can also work together to get your resume and/or Linkedin page updated and looking professional. Working together using shared Google Docs will maximize time and efficacy. You'll be able to copy and paste the final product right where you need it!
