Do yourself a favor and write your personal essay in the summer!

Julia Edwards

Essay Specialist

I am an Ivy-educated, award-winning writer with two decades of teaching experience – from nursery school to college-age students. For years, I have been helping high school seniors on their college essays through 826LA, ScholarMatch, and Colledge. I offer individual and small group college essay sessions. My goal is to make the dreaded personal essay not just another box to check in the college admissions process, but a thoughtful time of discovery and growth. Interested? Let's talk!
