Hi. I'm Ethan Sawyer, the College Essay Guy, and I'm here to make counselors' lives easier, relieve parents' worry, and help students write amazing college essays. But more than anything I'm hoping that we can become friends and make some extraordinary discoveries along the way.
Whether in live online workshops or at in-person speaking events, I love working directly with students, parents, and counselors. Register for an upcoming webinar, or book me to speak at your event. From 50-minute "Inspiration" talks to week-long Common Application intensives, there's something for everyone.
Want to get started right now? I've created a series of videos and guides that walk students (and counselors!) step-by-step through the college essay process—resources you can use whenever you want, wherever they want, at your own pace. I call it: College Essay Guy On Demand.
I've been helping students tell their stories for more than 10 years, and listening with unconditional positive regard is at the heart of my coaching philosophy. I work privately with a small number of students each year, and I'd love to work with you.
