College Application Essay and Resume Writing

Writing a high school or college application essay can be daunting. Many students wonder, “What do I write about?” or “How do I show my positive qualities?” Heather Forgione has 14 years experience coaching students with writing application essays and has helped students apply to top-tier schools. Creating an essay you will be proud of and colleges will enjoy can be a fun and rewarding process. Aspects of this process include:

  • Advance planning and brainstorming to ensure that the topic chosen highlights a quality or experience of the student that the reader cannot readily see from the rest of the application
  • Writing essays that will answer multiple essay questions, limiting your workload
  • Multiple revisions for content and edits for grammar
  • Assistance with staying on task, meeting deadlines, and getting organized

Vocabulary Building and Latin and Greek roots

Learning Latin and Greek roots, prefixes, and suffixes is a valuable lesson for any reader and writer, but especially helpful for middle school and high school students. These roots provide the foundation for more advanced vocabulary building, aiding a student’s reading comprehension and writing skills and eventually his or her test scores.

Our study guide includes 300 roots, prefixes, and suffixes and over 900 related words. The lesson can be accomplished in many different ways depending on the student’s learning style, and is perfect enrichment for a summer break, track-out session, or a period of time before or during SAT and ACT preparation.

GRE Preparation

Many students who are going on to graduate school feel that they need to refresh certain concepts, or that their test-taking skills need improvement. Forgione Tutoring can help you do this, while building your skills for the future.
