Westonite and Common Application Consultant, Liz Waltzman, will be a featured essay expert at Westport Library’s “Countdown to College Expo” on September 16th. The event will take place from 9:30-4:00 pm, includes workshops, essay and application review appointments, practice standardized tests, a luncheon and several speakers. Guests need to register online for lunch, appointments and practice tests at Waltzman, of Write Ahead College Essays, will meet with registered students, for 15-minute sessions, between 10:00 am - 12:00 noon. The Library is located at 20 Jesup Road, Westport and the event is free and open to the public.

Liz Waltzman founded Write Ahead College Essays in 2013 and has since worked with high school juniors and seniors throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties on the Common Application. Waltzman guides students through the process of brainstorming, composing and editing personal statements, supplemental essays and all other application writing. An encouraging facilitator and coach, Waltzman recognizes it’s the student’s story and voice that are paramount and ensures both are prominent.

“Liz was instrumental with my daughter’s Early Decision acceptance; she helped her hone her essay by tightening up vocabulary, correcting punctuation and keeping within the word count, while retaining the intended tone and message. Liz also gave insightful advice and assisted with supplemental essays. She’s a pro,” said client, Carrie Shea.

Waltzman holds Masters Degrees in Art History, Education and Library Science and is Scarsdale High School’s librarian with experience twenty-five years strong. Among her many responsibilities, she most enjoys helping students formulate, research and organize ideas, and often proofreads essays and research papers. These aspects of her position prompted her to launch Write Ahead College Essays to help teens thrive during the often overwhelming task of applying to colleges.

“Reducing Common Application stress is my main objective. I work with clients at any stage -- focusing on the creative and technical aspects of the writing process, providing guidance on the personal statement, supplemental essays and activities section. It’s such rewarding work; I look forward to assisting eager students at the College Expo and beyond,” said Waltzman.

“Countdown to College Expo” is aimed to answer questions, provide resources and ultimately, prepare students for their college journey. For additional details, visit or to contact Liz Waltzman directly via her website,
