Student Feedback: Writing college essays is an inquisitive process. However in this self-probing, a great deal of effort is required to reflect and reorganize those thoughts in written form. Sara helped me channel my energy where it was needed. She always picked up on words and sentences that didn’t sound right, offering alternative words or a different way to look at it. Instead of stressing too much on the validity of my writing, she helped me work on how to communicate my stories most effectively and concisely. Sara is patient, insightful and impassioned. I truly want to express my heartfelt gratitude for her help.
Sara’s Commentary: R was so in love with the words he had chosen, and with florid description that didn’t always serve the goal of the essay. He allowed me to be blunt with him about what was and wasn’t working. without rejecting my opinion out of hand. He needed to serve his larger goals! I knew that with the powerful engine of his mind and eye for details he could say more if he said less. However, I had such respect for his care with language.
