Testimonials for 1:1 Coaching

“Thank you for everything you have done to help my son in this journey!! We are thrilled with where they ended up and we couldn’t have done it without you, so thank you!!”

“I am so grateful we found your program. I had no direction with these essays and you made it so easy. Thank you so much for all your help!!”

“There's been and still is a whole lot of gratitude at our house for you!! Matt & I are not great at writing and we weren't sure what BYU is looking for. Our daughter said that getting your help was the best thing we could have done to help her.”

“Susie was so helpful! Our daughter really benefitted from the essay help Susie provided. She was able to help her set deadlines and follow thru, figure out which activities would be the most compelling to write about, and help with the hook of each essay. We are so grateful for her help and profession skills! The workshops were also helpful as a parent to listen to to know more of what BYU is looking for in each essay.”

In order to provide each student with the dedicated time needed for coaching and essay reviews, this program will only be offered to a limited number of students each fall.


  • How long does it take to write all of the BYU essays with 1:1 coaching?

    During the initial 30 minute evaluation, you will identify a timeline and coaching schedule that work for your child. In general, a complete coaching program usually includes 6 to 8 individual sessions that can be done weekly or multiple times a week.

  • Who can benefit the most with 1:1 coaching?

    1:1 coaching works for many students, but is ideal for children who are more independent and don't want to ask for help from parents. Also, this program works well for current missionaries who have limited time. Finally, Susie's coaching can help any student who is struggling with writers block, motivation or those who need extra writing support.
