Sarah Abenaim, a freelance writer, Jewish Link columnist, former educator and editing guru is now offering personalized one-on-one coaching sessions to teens seeking guidance in preparing and producing essays for college or high school entry. “The Essayist” will help evoke and uncover the creative ideas of students who may need more direction in linguistics and writing. It will also give teens the confidence they need to put together a winning essay.
Three types of appointments are offered. Essay Coaching Sessions are meetings that can help a student find a subject he or she is passionate about, talk through ideas and make a written plan. Editing sessions can be a follow-up to the initial meeting, or a start for someone who already has an outline and a rough draft. The final Revision Session can be an opportunity to put the finishing touches on the product, or it can be a stand-alone for a student seeking simple, sharp editing. Most work can be done over the phone or via email, but Abenaim does strongly recommend an initial in-person conversation.
Said a TABC student of her services, “I’m amazed at what we accomplished in my session. I had a few vague ideas jotted down and came away with a complete outline for a unique piece. I finally feel really invested in my college essay, and I’m excited to finish my applications!”
Services are not limited to those applying to college or high school. She also offers her expertise to anyone seeking feedback, advice or guidance in regard to writing projects.
