Are you a student applying for college admissions? In order to have a leg up on the competition your college admission application must be accompanied by a remarkable personal essay. While grades and test scores are important, a strong personal essay is the key component in ensuring your application stands out.
For many high school students (and their parents), writing the college essay can be the most daunting aspect of the application experience. There's no set formula for writing a great essay because the best essays are as unique as the individuals who write them. In order to impress a reviewer, an essay must be original, focused, and structured. This is where Thrive Tutoring's essay writing coaches are here to help!
We offer coaching by the hour or multi-hour packages that take you from brainstorming to a finished product. We can help finalize and fine tune drafts or take your student step by step through the writing process.
Coaching By the Hour: For students who already have a strong draft we can help improve and finalize essays. Your coach will work with you to fine tune your essay ensuring the content, style, structure, grammar, and all other aspects are ready for submission.
Five Hour Package: If you’re not quite ready to submit or want guidance and feedback on a school-specific supplemental essay, we offer a five hour package to meet your needs. Your coach will work with you to brainstorm, read and provide feedback, talk through first, second, or third drafts, and help finalize an essay that will set you apart.
Ten Hour Package: If you aren’t sure where to begin or if the idea of starting is too overwhelming, a ten hour package is your best option. Your coach will walk you through creating a springboard of possible essay topics that are meaningful to you and then help to narrow down and figure out the best topic and approach. From there your coach will teach you elements of good essay writing and approaches to spotlight your personality in your writing. After you’ve put your ideas into words, your coach will provide thoughtful feedback and help you through the revision process. It might take a few drafts, but by the end of your sessions, your coach will ensure you’re written a unique essay that’s ready for submission. A ten hour package is also great for those who want to work on multiple school-specific supplemental essays.
