COLLEGE ESSAY WORKSHOPS
Small 2- to 4-person workshops to help students really dial into their college essays with guidance and motivation from a college workshop instructor!
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 1-ON-1 AND WORKSHOPS?
Many student-applicants have difficulty carving out time for their essays. They don’t know what to write or how to motivate themselves through the multiple drafts needed to polish their writing. Oftentimes, students say they get ‘stuck’ somewhere in the writing process and then stop. During the workshops, a College Essay Coach is there to guide the student through any roadblocks and help them move forward with confidence.
WORKSHOPS MAKE STUDENTS WORK!
Students get two hours of uninterrupted time to really focus on their essays with guidance from a professional!
DO SOME STUDENTS DO BOTH 1-ON-1 AND WORKSHOPS?
Yes! There are many variations. Some students do only workshops. Some students start with workshops and end with one-on-one sessions when a draft is near completion and they need more focused help. Conversely, a student might want one-on-one sessions to brainstorm with the College Essay Coach and then use workshops to actually crank out the essay.
HOW ARE WORKSHOPS STRUCTURED?
Workshops place 2-4 students with one dynamic, engaging instructor. The instructor will normally give students a task list based on the essays the student needs to write. However, students can also come prepared with specific materials they want to work on. Normally, the students in the workshops are working on different essays while the coach periodically checks in on the student-applicants to give guidance and feedback.
