All coaching sessions will be held via Zoom (video conferencing system). Coaching sessions are typically 60-80 minutes long. Sessions can be recorded at your request.
Coaching sessions will be scheduled in advance. Families have until November 1, 2019 to complete all sessions; at that time any unused sessions expire. I will try to accommodate your scheduling requests, but I cannot guarantee particular times. Additionally, I do not schedule sessions or return essay edits with fewer than 48 hours notice. The goal of this program is for you to plan ahead, so we do not have any last minute panic (never the best way to produce quality work!)
We can discuss resumes, college or scholarship essays, and supplemental or short answer responses during our sessions. Private coaching will focus on the student-produced content and NOT on college selection or other related topics.
The online workshop will be available starting the the week of June 17. You will have access to the handouts and video lessons through December 31, 2019. Barring technical difficulties, you will have 24/7 access to the online materials.
You will receive a separate email with details on how to access the online course.
Office hours will be held using the secure Zoom videoconferencing platform. You do NOT need a login or profile to use Zoom; we will provide you with a link to join each office hour conference.
You can access Zoom office hours from your phone, tablet, or computer, making it easy to use even if you are traveling during the summer.
Like office hours held by college professors, these office hours are open times for students and parents to ask questions, get feedback, or personalized help through the writing and editing process. Participation is optional.
Megan will hold 2-3 office hour sessions per month throughout the summer. Times and dates will be emailed to you in advance, but may be subject to change. We will have a mix of daytime, afternoon, evening, and weekend office hours.
Results are not guaranteed or implied. We will NOT write your essays for you or tell you what to write. This is a coaching program and our most successful students come to meetings prepared, follow through on suggestions, ask questions, and are willing to accept coaching.
This program is non-refundable. Use part or all of the services, but the non-refundable cost remains the same.
