Bearing Witness: College Admissions Essay Coaching is uniquely skilled at helping students write heartfelt, authentic, and compelling admission essays. Honoring each student’s role as both participant and witness in not only their own life but also the lives of others, I work with students to unearth, awaken, and harness their stories and inner storyteller, which are so often dormant in all of us. We then turn these stories into the kind of essays that transport admissions officers to a time and place showered in such vivid detail it is as if they have been personally invited into the past to experience the writer’s life first hand.
