"This course really helped me to better understand what makes an effective college essay. Not only were a variety of strong examples provided to show what kinds of essays work, but I could also immerse myself in the hands-on process of writing a college essay in order to better understand what kind of essay is best for me, since every student is unique." -- Trisha Sinha
PRIVATE BOOTCAMP- COLLEGE ADMISSIONS ESSAY
It’s not too late to write an incredible college admissions essay! Join this 3 session personalized workshop series to craft your college essay to become the ideal admissions candidate. This boot camp will help even the most tentative writer find a hook, craft the essay only he or she can write, and polish it to 650 words of perfection.
Session one will be a discussion of the current college essay prompts, and the sample essays provided (to be read in advance), followed by a brainstorming and pitch session. You will leave the session with an outline and clear direction for your essay, and will be expected to write your first draft within a week. During the remaining 2 intensive sessions, you will work one on one with Heather, receiving editorial feedback per draft, until your essay is in perfect shape. Please note: Heather will not write your essay for you, but she will guide you in crafting your own ideas and words into the ideal essay only you can write.
The cost is $200 per student for 3 editorial sessions. Heather will read your draft in advance of each session, and provide an interactive conference call, where you can both view the document together. Each of these interactive editorial sessions is 30 minutes.
Heather also offers help with personal statements, supplemental essays, resumes and scholarship essays. The cost is $200 per 3 editorial sessions, or $75 for a single session.
