Reach out to for essay coaching and editing.

Services include:

  • Review for the basics: grammar, spelling, and punctuation; and
  • Review for content:
    • Does your message come through?
    • Did you answer the question in the prompt?
    • Does everything you say flow naturally into your conclusion?
  • Help with the process. I can’t edit it if you haven’t been able to start writing it. In that case you may need help getting started.

Looking for general essay advice? Check out Jill’s essay on how to write a college application essay.

I will never share your essay with anyone unless you give me permission.

“Jill’s help editing my graduate school application essays was invaluable. Her essay help services range from broad, preliminary work such as structuring your essay and determining the right content to key small reviews such as finding typos and correcting word uses, to everything in between. In reviewing my work, I found she was particularly useful in identifying confusing sentences and rephrasing them in the tone I wanted to write in. Further, Jill was able to help me identify unnecessary sentences and directly articulate concepts that I had indirectly alluded to in my work. Don’t even consider submitting an essay if Jill hasn’t looked at it!”
