College Essays Made Eazy Program
College essays (personal statements) are a key piece of the application process for most top-ranked colleges.
Unfortunately, high school teachers do not instruct students on how to write these essays. Therefore, students assume they have the college application essay writing skills and start writing their essays on their own during their senior year. They then run into problems because they do not have the proper foundation. Without the proper foundation, many students end up having difficulty writing or procrastinate.
This program is designed for Juniors who aspire to attend top ranked colleges. The goal is to give these students a jump start on creating their college application essays. We teach them how to write a compelling college application essay with guidance and plenty of hands-on practice. Think of this program as a boot camp for college application essays.
