CONVEY THE LEADERSHIP COLLEGES WANT

The essay is your opportunity to become more than a GPA or an SAT score. An admissions offer sifts quickly through a barrage of scholastic achievements and extracurricular pursuits. The essay is your chance to stop a college admissions officer in her tracks and show her that you are a person, and a fascinating person at that.

We approach the essay as a story, and we invoke your human nature as a storyteller. Often young people don’t realize that they have a story to tell. They think their lives too mundane. It’s exactly the details within the simplicity of life that can inspire a reader. Through a structured and guided process, we will help you elicit the colorful details and anecdotes of your life as you weave together a compelling fabric of narrative. This is a flexible course after which you will be a writer valued for your style and wit, skills appreciated in college and in life after. You will learn to seize a reader’s attention, write with sentence variety, choose operative words, and conclude with style.

RECEIVE SENTENCE-BY-SENTENCE EDITS

You’ll receive timely feedback and dozens of edits from an accomplished editor.

THE DIFFERENCE A WRITING COURSE MAKES

Over 3 or more rounds of revision, you’ll craft a narrative to highlight your scholastic and extracurricular successes.

COLLEGES RECRUIT STUDENTS OF LEADERSHIP

When officers examine your application they are looking for evidence of initiative and passion. They look at your AP courses and activity list looking for these leaderships skills. Practice these skills so that they show up stronger in your application. Become the leader the admissions officer is looking for.

CONTROL YOUR EFFORT TO GET MORE WORK DONE

The personal essay is a difficult process that requires several revisions and deep introspection to tell your own story. It requires discipline to churn out drafts and a focused mindset to look inward and identify themes. Our evidence-based lessons in self-regulation get you better results in less time because we go beyond content to provide you with the achievement skills to succeed. You will learn to identify and leverage your character strengths so that you complete tasks feeling fulfilled rather than exhausted. In the writing process you’ll leverage your strengths to help you tell your own story in a compelling manner. Other lessons train you in perspective-taking that allows you to consider other vantage points as you identify cause and effect in your life to help you depersonalize failure. As a writer, perspective-taking will help you identify themes in your own narrative. Self-efficacy will allow you to pen a better paper in less time while building an achievement skill valuable in life after.

 

Students who practice self-regulation might:

  • Prepare for class
  • Resist procrastination
  • Listen actively
  • Apply feedback
  • Label emotions correctly
  • Respond thoughtfully
  • React productively to interior and exterior stressors
  • Recognize their character strengths and weaknesses
  • Use their strengths to accomplish tasks better
  • Thrive within discomfort
  • Cultivate productive emotions

TUTORS FROM TOP U.S. UNIVERSITIES

You’ll work with experienced tutors and editors who have matriculated to top universities in the U.S. Having gone through the writing process themselves, they understand the challenges you’ll face and they understand the standard required.

EXPERIENCED IN THE CRAFT OF NARRATIVE

Each tutor you work with will be adept in the techniques of storytelling that will help you write an engaging and memorable essay. You will learn to seize a reader’s attention, write with sentence variety, choose operative words, and conclude with style.  

COMPLETED WRITING INTERNSHIPS & FELLOWSHIPS

You’ll work with a tutor who has completed internships and fellowships in an area related to essay writing: editing, journalism, or broadcasting. Our tutors have edited hundreds of essays and have instructed dozens of students in writing.

PERSONALIZED PAIRING

Your writing tutor will be assigned according to similarities in your admissions profile. She will have had similar interests or college aspirations so that she can help you write your story in a moving way. She will understand your story and the unique challenges you will face in conveying your narrative of leadership.
