"Molly was a great help in writing my admissions essay from start to finish. In the brainstorming process she helped me really pinpoint what was important to me, and choose the right story to express that.
Most importantly, throughout the whole process Molly was very respectful of my ideas and made sure I maintained my own voice as a writer. Her edits were extremely constructive and she was always easy to reach. I highly recommend her. "

"When I began writing my general common application essay, I had come up with a few possible ideas of what I might write about but was unsure in which direction to go. Sitting down with Molly for the first time she had me do a series of exercises to find out what topics I was passionate about and knew a lot of. Surprisingly some topic ideas that hadn’t occurred to me came up and seemed like genuine possibilities. Once I locked in on my general topic, Molly helped me figure out the direction in which I wanted to go. Working with her she helped advise me on what perspectives potentially made more sense to take the essay, evaluated the specificity of my writing so that details were well addressed, helpfully critiqued me on my literary choices and ultimately helped clean up the paper's grammar and syntax. Throughout the whole process Molly was extremely helpful and easy to reach out to, easing the burden of the arduous process of college applications. I am very grateful for her advice and would highly recommend her to other students."

"On just finishing the first draft of my first novel, I can honestly say I wouldn't have done it without taking Molly's class. While I had many ideas and starts before her class, the structure and guidance she gave in her nurturing and professional way helped give me the boost I needed to really delve into this project."
