Coaching

“Thank you again for being my writing coach last year! As you may recall, our last session reviewed my personal essay for college admission. The process took a long time, but I’m happy to report that I’ve been accepted to the Doctoral program in public health and just finished my first quarter of classes. I’m not only grateful for your support with strengthening my writing skills, but also your support of my abilities which strengthened my confidence. Thank you for being an effective and caring coach! You helped me so much, thank you!”

We offer one-on-one writing coaching to help you build your writing skills, write your own documents, and find your own voice. Get the writing help you need, when you need it.

How does writing coaching work?

First, we’ll have a brief phone call to identify your goals for the coaching. Are you trying to build your writing confidence? Do you need to write more efficiently—and with less suffering? Have new writing responsibilities come along with a job change? Is English your second language? Once we’ve identified your writing goals, we’ll schedule a series of four 60-minute coaching sessions (or more). We’ll work together on the phone, using GoogleDocs, via Skype, or in a teleconference – whichever method works best.

What will we work on during coaching?

Mostly, we will work on your own documents, emails, reports, newsletters, or web content; we’ll work on your pressing writing projects. When needed, I’ll provide writing practice exercises and immediate feedback, so you can improve quickly.
