    "You removed so much parental stress from the college application, essay-writing process! As parents, we were hands-off! Our daughter, Hannah, assumed responsibility for meeting deadlines and making revisions, as she worked with you to craft her college essay."

    "You provided the perfect blend of constructive feedback and encouragement, which empowered Hannah to effectively transfer her thoughts to writing and take ownership of her work. Hannah enjoyed your coaching style. She expressed gratitude for the experience and shared openly that you are positive, calm, reassuring, grounded, and open."

    "You are an inspirational writing coach. We recommend you with enthusiasm!"

    "I enjoyed the fact that you took the time to know me. While we spent a lot of time working on my essays, we also had many conversations about our personal lives and interests. You were personable and calming. This made the writing process less intense which had a positive impact on my writing, and my stress levels!"

    "Also, through our many conversations, I felt you and I built a friendship and since you got to know me, you were able to be even more helpful with my essays. I always felt comfortable sharing my ideas with you, even when they were terrible. I have a tendency to procrastinate, but you made sure that I kept up so I wouldn't be tight for time as the deadlines approached. In fact, I turned in all my applications weeks before the respective deadlines, which I owe to you. I would've written all my essays in the days before if it weren't for your guidance."

    "Also, you really are good at relating to students. You have sons and were a teacher, which is huge. You also know what colleges are looking for in their responses and you are so helpful in crafting responses that will catch the eye of the admissions counselors."

    "My favorite part of our collaboration was on the final day we met about my college essay. I walked in and it was choppy and I did not see how it was going to come together. But, we sat together for over an hour just working it out. We were both so proud of my essay that night, and that was an amazing feeling."

    "Through this very stressful process, you somehow always helped me stay calm. I never stressed about my essay not being done in time or not being good enough because I knew I had your support, and that was extremely comforting. Your calm voice and reminder that I was doing a great job always boosted my confidence levels. You made me feel like the essay I wrote was amazing, and I never would have felt this otherwise."

    "Andrew gained so much through your guidance for his common application essay. What impressed me about your coaching style was that you spent time getting to know Andrew and who he is as a person before diving into the actual essay. That process allowed him to think out loud and capture ideas and thoughts about what he might want to write."

    "You helped Andrew organize his thoughts and he was able to produce an essay that expressed his true voice, which he was very proud of."

    "You were really accessible when Andrew needed help and made it easy to work around his schedule. You were also wonderful keeping me informed when I wanted to hear how Andrew's essay was progressing."

    "Audra was always available when I reached out to her.  Not only for my main essay but for all of my supplements, too. My completed rough draft was upwards of 7,000 words. Audra’s calm demeanor and confidence led me to the final product of 647 words. Reading my final draft over, I could not be more satisfied with the piece!"

    "On top of this, I feel that throughout the process, I did not only meet an essay writer; but a confidant. Looking back at the process, I confidently know that Audra knows who I am as a person as well as anyone else I’ve known for years. She took the time to get to know me as a person to make sure that my writing directly reflected the person I am."

    "I would suggest reaching out to Audra in the middle of your Junior Year of High School. The college process gets very hectic, fast. Getting a jump start on your college essay with Audra will be a help and a relief to have this part of your college stuff done when you really start to “feel it.” You also need to trust the person you are working with."

    "Audra knows what the colleges want to hear and how the writing should come across. Stay calm, and know that Audra will help you produce a killer essay."
