What We Will Cover

Writing a Stellar College Admissions Essay

Our workshop will give rising high school seniors insight on what makes a college essay really work, offering top essays as examples and highlighting the methods necessary to write one just as exceptional. Our expert guidance will help them craft a compelling essay highlighting their unique gifts and strengths so that they will stand out. Building on ideas students bring to class; our workshop will help students plan, outline and write the first draft of their essay.

What Students Will Gain

Most students should leave the workshop with a completed outline and solid work on a first draft of the Common Application Essay. They will feel confident that their topic and their writing method will produce an essay spectacular enough to impress admissions committees all over the country.

Our workshop is the first step, but we are available if students need more support. As they continue the writing and revising process, private coaching sessions (conducted either remotely or in person) will be offered at an hourly rate.
