Mentorship for Young Writers
Expert Admissions Essay and College Writing Coaching

I offer tutoring by Skype or in person in San Francisco 
in:
- College admissions and other program application essay 
writing (high school, undergrad, and grad)
- Special courses in critical reading and literature
- Special instruction in creative writing, personal essay 
writing, and storytelling

I help students find their own natural passion to express 
themselves and their ideas, and I show them practical 
methods to execute these ideas on the page and eliminate 
''writing anxiety.'' I've assisted students with admissions 
to Columbia, Dartmouth, UC Berkeley, and more. I offer an 
individualized curriculum to help my students achieve the 
confidence in their writing that they need to succeed at 
top tier schools. 

I have over ten years of experience teaching and eight 
years of experience as a professional writer and editor.

Get college application essay help from Ivy League grad,
former Googler, UPenn Alumni interviewer & author of ''Crush
Your College Admissions Essay in 10 Steps'' ebook.  

In my 5+ years of college admissions consulting, I've
noticed that ''good'' college essays are actually quite rare.
It's a problem, b/c the personal statement is the 5th most
important admissions factor. 

Top tier college admissions is highly competitive. You don't
want your child writing an essay on topics that should be
completely avoided. 

Work with me and I guarantee that your child's essay will be
the strongest part of the admissions process. We'll work
together from start to finish, in-person and/or on Skype.

Please contact me directly or check out my site:

A strategically prepared and original college application often makes the 
difference in the increasingly competitive college admissions process. I have 
helped many students prepare their applications with extremely successful 
results. 

We work intensively on the essay, selecting a topic that frees the student to write 
in his or her own voice, then editing for maximum impact. We also balance the 
content and wording of the application?s short answer questions and any 
additional essays to present the most complete picture. We practice for 
interviews, getting comfortable with the experience. We also make a step-by-
step plan for the entire process, breaking down a daunting workload into smaller 
steps and ensuring progress along the way.

College admissions help can be combined with test preparation in the fall of 
senior year. For more information, please visit my web site, 
weinsteintutoring.com, or get in touch to learn more about how I can be of help.

I am a veteran educator (20 years teaching and working as 
an administrator in public and private schools) . Each year 
during the college application season I take on a handful of 
students to help support their college application process. I 
just completed working the first round of UC applicants . I 
have time to take on 2-3 new students.

My work with students involves a range of services 
depending on the needs of the student. Typically, I help 
students select a list of colleges, manage the application  
deadlines, and I help with all of the personal 
statements/essays.

I usually work with the student in person and with online 
tools to keep track of progress on the applications. Once 
the application process is complete, I am available to help 
students identify and apply to scholarships.

In terms of fees, I work with family financial needs to create 
a scope of work and fees that are manageable.
