College Application Essay and Resume Writing
Writing an application essay can be daunting. Many students wonder, “What do I write about?” or “How do I show my positive qualities?” Heather Forgione has 20 years experience coaching students with writing application essays and has helped many 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 and meeting deadlines
1-on-1 Essay Assistance
Individualized college application essay help can be scheduled with a variety of tutors in different locations. We help you brainstorm ideas, narrow down potential topics, and organize and edit rough drafts. After 3-4 in-person sessions and once rough drafts are produced, we can move to email edits to help tweak drafts into final drafts. These sessions will range from $60-$70/hr with our Lead Staff and Specialists. Sessions with Heather are $90/hr.
Our College Application Essay Workshops are 2-day small group workshops offered each summer aimed at helping students start one essay for the Common Application. Each class is limited to 5 participants. The class will cover the characteristics of successful application essay writing, do an inventory of the students’ experiences to brainstorm ideas, review the different Common App Essay prompts, and select 1-2 prompts to begin exploring and writing for day 2. A rough draft will be produced by the end of the workshop. Workshop dates and times are announced late April.
