Become an Essay Specialist

Our global network of Essay Specialists will review over 15,000 college admissions essays this year, and tens of thousands of academic essays. We are looking for passionate teachers, insightful editors, and creative problem solvers to help us reach thousands of students.

Above and Beyond Editing

While we are all grammar nerds, we are not a proofreading service. We provide comprehensive, actionable, and educational feedback to help writers tell the best possible version of their story. Our Essay Specialists are intuitive, creative thinkers who are able to see the strengths and weaknesses in any piece of writing, and are capable teachers who can guide a writer to their full potential.

Culture and Expectations

Our Essay Specialists receive extensive training, one-on-one coaching, and continuing educational opportunities to develop their skill sets. We're a collaborative community of writers with the shared goal of using our expertise to help students. In order to do this well, we require a 4-hour-per-week minimum time commitment, and we ask that all editors who join our network share our commitment to collaboration and openness to feedback.


Editors who join our network begin at $20/hour for a brief evaluation period. After this period, the editors we invite to become full members will receive a raise in pay from $24-$28/hr, depending on their weekly time commitment.


Because of the high volume of applications we receive, we will only reach out if we are inviting you to move forward with us. If so, we’ll respond within a week of receiving your application, and we’ll send you an online training course to introduce you to our approach! Then, you’ll complete feedback on a test essay, we’ll read your work, and we’ll be in touch about joining our team of experts.
