Writing is vital for success in most careers and disciplines today, so students must begin to acquire good writing skills early to prepare for adult life.
Not to mention that writing is a process, requiring much “re-doing,” which can lead to power struggles between parents and students.
Developing strong writing skills has a number of benefits for students: In other words, helping a student grow as a writer is an investment in their future.
Some essays may need only proofreading while others need to be coaxed from a blank page—your Senior Counselor will help with both and everything in between to create compelling essays.
Our counselors are accustomed to tutoring over the phone and reviewing drafts by email.
I have learned a lot from you and you are an excellent and kind teacher. H., Essay Guidance Program student"As we are nearing the end of this application process, only Colgate and Michigan applications left, I can not thank you enough for all of your assistance, advice and support.
I don't think anyone else on this planet could have done a better job than you did. I would like to highlight the support piece as I think both P and I derived significant comfort from having an outside, very experienced advisor to turn to. I can not tell you how happy P was each time she saw an email from you that said 'if you accept these edits, the essay is ready to go.' Immediately I would hear about it!!
Thank you so much for your help last winter; you not only guided me through my applications but also made things much less stressful! T., Essay Guidance Program student"L, S is planning to join USC for Aerospace Engineering! B., parent of Essay Guidance Program student, USC "I wanted to let you know that my journey through the college application process has officially come to an end. I can't thank you enough for all your guidance and support in the process. The feedback you gave me was so generous and helped me to elevate my essays beyond what I thought was possible. Y., Essay Guidance Program student"Just wanted to pass along that B got into Stanford, Harvard, Cal Tech and University of Washington (her safety school).
I am personally very happy for her and want to thank you once again for all your help and support. Ironically, in the end, all I needed was my personal statement and my 150-word 'why' for Duke, but I'm so glad I was prepared for the regular decision round. Only school she didn’t get in to (that she applied to) was MIT. We couldn’t be happier, as both our girls are now attending Stanford. We don’t have any more kids to usher through your program but we’ll be sure and recommend you to anyone we come across!
