Including: Personal Statement Coaching
College admissions officers are a tough audience, and their expectations are not the same as those of English teachers or school counselors. Using our extensive admissions industry experience and our pragmatic, real-world approach to teaching writing, we will help students strategically select topics that will hold the attention of admissions officers; brainstorm for each prompt; edit for clarity and conciseness; and edit for voice and organization. We are confident that by the end of this process, students will agree that our services were an invaluable investment for their college careers and writing skills.
