Essay Writing Support
We take varied approaches to providing essay writing support to meet each student’s needs:
4-session Writing Workshop Series: Presented by Mychal-David Wynn (Amherst College BA English), to provide step-by-step guidance through the writing process. This session is the foundational session for assisting students in understanding the elements of writing essays for college and scholarships beyond what is typically taught in high school language arts classes.
Our goal is for each student to develop a fully edited essay for the Common Application, writing supplement, or for applying for a scholarship.
Students will be required to work through the writing process between sessions. The sessions will cover such areas as rhetorical arguments; non-cognitive variables; voice; responding to multi-prompt questions; flow; and demonstrating college-level grammar, vocabulary, and punctuation.
Scholarship Essays: Developed through the 4-session writing workshops or via one-on-one guidance and review.
Supplemental Essays: Developed through the 4-session writing workshops or via one-on-one guidance and review.
Responding to Writing Prompts: Some students, who are otherwise good writers, may struggle with understanding how to respond to writing prompts, or even what a college or scholarship provider requires a response to the multi-question prompt.
Request the session or level of support that is right for you.
