Our Coaches

When we hire coaches, we look for...

  • An extremely high level of writing skill. It's not enough that our coaches simply be smart or earn good grades on writing assignments as students—they must have talent, the ability to transmit their expertise to others, and a thorough understanding of the writing process.
  • Experience with and an understanding of the highly selective admissions process that top students go through.
  • Professional responsibility and ethics.
