Do you want your college application essay to be done before crunch time? Want to avoid arguments with your parents and all the stress? We can help you create a winning college application essay! We follow a light-hearted and sometimes even fun, step-by-step process. Based on years of experience working successfully with college applicants, we’ve developed a method that yields winning essays. Short bursts of brainstorming, freewriting and individual feedback will immediately get you started drafting an essay. With a routine of in-class writing sessions and a bit of writing homework, coupled with timely feedback as students revise their essays, we offer individualized guidance and support in crafting an essay that memorably introduces you. Admissions officers read hundreds of essays and we want to be sure that yours will stand out. Work with us and in little more than a week you will have produced an essay that presents both your authentic personality and solid writing skills.
