UPDATE Summer 2017:
I will be working with students on college application essays during July and August on Martha’s Vineyard while working on Skype with students around the world.
VINEYARD DATES: July 22 to Aug. 12. Your house, mine, or a place in between. Last summer, I met with several students in workrooms at the Edgartown Library.
DETAILS about public lectures have not been finalized, but I hope to give several public/free talks on the subject.
FROM SUMMER 2016: I will be giving a free information session with a Q&A period about college admissions at the Edgartown Public Library. Or call or email me to discuss your son’s or daughter’s needs.

Recommendations from Vineyard families, including this Edgartown parent: “I cannot imagine having lived through the essay writing aspect of college applications without Elizabeth Benedict. Liz worked with my daughter during the summer between her junior and senior years. By getting a head start, Liz was able to encourage my daughter to revisit her essays multiple times. The end product was outstanding and really conveyed a sense of her individuality and strengths. She was admitted to two of her three early application schools, and I have no doubt that Liz’s coaching contributed to this success.”
See my website for additional recommendations from students and parents.
Private sessions at your Vineyard home or mine. Skype sessions available too. If you’re on the Cape, we can meet in Wood’s Hole or Falmouth.
