College Essay Boot Camp
Most colleges will require that you write an essay as part of the application process. Writing an essay for the common application is often one of the difficult parts about applying to colleges, but it doesn’t have to be. By using a step-wise approach, we start at brainstorming ideas by tapping into your experiences, move into developing a theme that will demonstrate your uniqueness and finishing with a well-crafted, personal essay that will tell the colleges something about who you are. This interactive, collaborative approach makes the process almost fun. We can take you from having no idea of what you’ll write about to an essay you’ll be proud of. Cost is $99 and usually requires about 4 meetings that can be set up at times that are convenient. Monday through Thursday evenings from 6:00 – 8:00.
