Applying for schools can be stressful, and we are here to help. We work with you or your young adult at any and every stage of this process. If you know what you want to write but don’t know how to organize or execute your ideas, we will interview you to help gather vivid details so you can start working on a draft. If you are struggling to get started, we will delve into your past and your passions to excavate the stories that only you can tell. 

Along the way, draft after draft, we will help you to write your best essay and become a better writer, a skill you will have forever. We can teach you about showing vs. telling, using dialogue, and other literary devices that will help your story pop. We will notice if you’re making grammar errors and will easily teach you those specific rules. If you’re stuck on how to capture the readers’ attention, strategies to end an essay that they’ll remember, or how to make your “Why I want to go to school X” essay completely original, we are experts in guiding you on this journey.

You will leave us with the best essay you’re capable of writing and new confidence in yourself as a writer. We have had students whose grades have soared with their new excitement for writing. We’ve had students leave us loving writing for the first time or loving writing even more. And we’ve given our clients the competitive edge they need.

It will always be your work, your words, and our guidance to help you achieve your optimal essay.



“We found MPE’s College Essay Prep workshop really useful. We then worked with MPE to help our daughter develop her essay. I finally got to read it and let’s just say, I about died. I had tears in my eyes, and I was just in shock. It is amazing.”

"Sharon was a godsend to us as my son was applying to college. Sharon's method of teaching was so non-judgmental — my son stayed open to learning and improved his writing immensely! His essays were beautifully written and so interesting, and his confidence in writing has improved tenfold. The time and money was well spent." 

"My daughter was 'stuck.' I was stuck in the helping. She needed someone who didn't already know her to help her find her voice. My daughter had a fantastic experience with Sharon. She LOVES to work with teens on their essays and to teach them about the creative writing process en route. She is WONDERFUL."
