Real, honest writing gives you a voice and personality. Your reader can sense the human being behind the application, and this connection is everything.
Still, writing about yourself is one of the hardest things to do. You want to sound genuine, humble, and unique--without boring your reader or bragging.
Tell me if this sounds familiar:
You have no idea how to start the biggest essay of your life.
You've erased sentence after sentence that sounds stiff and forced.
You have great ideas...in your head. Translating them is another story.
Hi, I'm Rachel, a high school English teacher and writing coach. No matter where you are in your writing process, I can help. If you have a topic in mind, I will analyze whether it's the best choice. If you have a draft, I will give you detailed notes and feedback to shape it into a perfect piece of writing.
