Write Coach

Success Isn’t Taught. It’s Coached.

There is a lot to think about when shaping a clear essay or story premise. You need training to develop your tone and voice as well as a coherent narrative. Let me coach you on how to express yourself because, after all, only you can tell your story!

Maybe what you’ve been asked to write is not as exciting as a short story, a poem, or a song. Look, I get it. Enter Write Coach. We can find that little bit of excitement in your assignment, essay, or first book. Our goal is to make you a happy writer.

Better Writing.

Not all people learn the same way, and with years of online learning, many parents are worried that their children have lost ground in their education. As a coach and parent, I’ve seen it first hand. Let’s talk about what your child needs so the writing assignment gets done without you having to take time from your day.

I seriously considered naming one of our writing packages, “Please Take This Off My Plate.” It was a direct quote from one of the moms who signed up her son for college essay guidance. So if your plate is full, feel free to pass the ball to me to help your child build writing confidence.

Writing Is Exercise.

Choose among several writing packages based on your goals. Each package is tailored to coach you in a collaborative way to meet your background and needs. I help you unlock your inner writer, meet specific creative challenges, incorporate proper grammar, overcome writer’s block, and focus your efforts. I love helping writers shine.

About Me

I grew up in Andover, Massachusetts, lucky enough to have teachers who were witty, engaging, and knowledgeable. I had a love for sports, reading and creative writing. My 9th grade English teacher saw my passion for literature and stoked it. In my report card that spring she described me as a future author who was “ebullient” in my writing as well as in my day-to-day life. That is when I realized it just takes one moment, one word, one good grade, one laugh from an audience hearing your story to turn any of us into happy writers.

I earned my Masters in teaching English at Lesley University not long after graduating as an English major at Middlebury College. Naturally, I became an English teacher and author and eventually shared my love of reading and writing with my own children. It was only a matter of time that I’d find my dream job. Write Coach has lent me the platform to help cultivate writers to become more effective and confident communicators.

When not coaching writers, Ellen is also a published author.
