Calistoga, California



Hi! I'm Julie and I have worked with as many as 25 students annually on college application essays, college resumes, and on occasion, classroom writing projects. I can help you figure out which prompts to respond to and guide you through the essay writing process until we are both satisfied with the results. All of my students have obtained admission to their first- or second-choice schools.

My hobbies include: yoga, walking, hiking, cooking, photography, biking, and reading. I have two kids in their 20s. We all live in the beautiful Bay Area.
