Tutoring for the College Application Essay

Individualized Attention, from
Freewriting to the Final Touches

My approach to this high-stakes endeavor is to help the student writer make important discoveries while also staying true to their sense of self. Together, we unearth experiences and cultivate connections between the past, present, and future.


My aim is for the student to feel supported and inspired throughout the process, from engaging in generative activities to producing a polished piece. 

For high school sophomores, juniors, seniors, and gap year students. Available in person (local to Northampton, MA) or on Zoom.

"Miranda worked with both of my daughters on their college essays. She used different strategies for their different skills and styles of writing. Both of them were accepted into the colleges of their choice. Their final essays showed their voice and creativity and helped them stand out. Miranda is a skilled teacher who knows how to guide students on a personal path of improvement, taking them from where they are to where they need to go."
