Work with Me

I have taught essay-writing classes, published many of my own pieces and been recognized in several essay contests. I am now offering a service to consult with writers on their essays.

Cost:
$99.00 (A typical personal essay is 1200-1500 words. I’ll review up to a 10-page essay for this cost.)

Service:
I’ll read the essay and provide line edits and comments in the document. We’ll meet via Zoom (an online video conferencing platform) to discuss the goals of your piece, what’s currently working, and how to strengthen the essay from a structural perspective. Depending on how complete the draft is, I may have suggestions on where to submit the piece.

You should know I’m not a proofreader. My main strength is being able to look at your piece, listen to what you’re trying to achieve, see what’s already working and make suggestions on how to make it stronger. Feel free to check out my essays page to get a feel for my work and whether my style resonates with you.

Below, I’ve provided testimonials from writers I’ve previously worked with.

To Get Started:
Email me at tammydelatorre@yahoo.com. Let me know that you’re interested. I’ll send you a PayPal invoice. Once paid, you’ll secure a spot. You can send me your essay and we’ll arrange a time to meet via Zoom (an online video conferencing platform). Depending on my availability, it will probably take me 2-3 days to read your essay and provide feedback.
