College Application Essays

“I’m not sure what to say at all.”

We’ll look at any essay prompts—what kind of essay is being requested—and help you understand what colleges are looking for and how to structure your writing accordingly. We’ll work with you on drafts and revisions of your application essays until you’re happy with the result.

“I have a sense of what I want to say, but it’s too long/too short for the requirements.”

If your essay is too long, we’ll help you find ways to trim and tighten your writing so it is strong, concise, and effective. If your essay is too short, we’ll help you add substance to your response so it meets the requirements.

“I know what I want to say, but I don’t think it sounds good enough.”

We’ll find out where you feel uncomfortable with your writing and help you develop strategies to feel more confident in your voice. We will give you honest (but kind) feedback on both the tone and content of your essays so college application boards will see you at your best.
