Whether you’re proofreading your Common App personal essay, drafting a personal statement to submit with your college application, reducing the word count for your grad school statement of purpose, or brainstorming ideas for a program’s supplemental essay questions, I can help you through the process. I was an academic advisor at Lakeland University for six years and also served on the institution’s graduate committee. I’ve helped students craft effective materials that contributed to acceptance for undergraduate programs, law school, dental school, medical school, Ph.D. programs, MBA programs, MFA programs, and more.

I work up to 45 hours per week, typically Monday-Friday, but will work additional days if necessary to meet a project deadline. My preferred method of communication is email, but I also use Skype and telephone to consult with clients as needed.
50% of the estimated project cost is due up front as a booking fee to reserve my time, and the remaining balance is due upon completion of the work.
All invoices are payable within 15 days. I apply interest if payment is not made within 30 days, at an interest rate of 2 percent per month or partial month, including the month following the invoice date. No interest is due if payment is made by the fifteenth day.
Because I book projects in advance and therefore will turn down work if I’ve already allotted time for your project, I charge a cancellation fee of 50% of the project total. (In the case of hourly projects, the cancellation fee is 50% of the rate quote.) Interest rates for late invoices apply as described above.
