Martha’s Vineyard 2022

I’ll be on Martha’s Vineyard from the last week of July to mid-August 2022. I meet privately with students in their homes, in study rooms at local libraries, or somewhere in between — it’s up to you. 

I’m excited to give my first talk at the Edgartown Library since the pandemic began on Wednesday July 27 at 5:30pm:

“Your College Application Essays and Process:  What’s Changed Since COVID?” 

Just as important, during this time, I work days and nights with students around the country and around the world via Skype, Facetime, and Zoom on college essays and applications.

For those on the Vineyard, being there is a great opportunity to meet with families who live year-round on the island — which I did in the 1990s — and work with summer families I wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to meet in person. 

The pandemic has made almost all teaching and learning online, but long before COVID, most of my work with students was online, working with students as far away as Qatar, Hong Kong, and Kuala Lumpur — and as close as Boston, Washington DC, and Chagrin Falls, Ohio (really!). I can say with confidence that even through the screen, the students and I develop real relationships. There’s good conversation, laughter, serious work, and best of all, I help students become more confident, capable writers and achieve their college goals.

Whether you’re planning to be on Martha’s Vineyard this summer or not, if you’re facing applying to college and you want an experienced guide, shoot me an email or give me a call (EAST COAST TIME ZONE), and we can talk about how to move forward.
