A suite of videos and resourcs to help your students write awesome college essays.

AS A COLLEGE COUNSELOR, GUIDING STUDENTS THROUGH THE COLLEGE ESSAY PROCESS CAN BE TOUGH.

COUNSELORS WONDER:

How do I help my students...
  • Choose a great topic?

  • Determine what structure best suits their story?

  • Write an essay that’s authentic, yet helps them stand out among thousands of applicants?

MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOW DO I INSPIRE MY STUDENTS TO START EARLY?

After 15 years of helping students with their essays, I’ve found that students pretty much ask the same 10-15 questions. .

And if you’re like me, you wish you could either clone yourself or just have those 10-15 questions answered so you could just point them to a single place..

But who has time to do that?

I did.

I created the ultimate step-by-step video course for students that walks them through how to write an amazing personal statement and application/supplemental essays.


This year I’m partnering with a number of college counselors to hopefully make things easier on you and your students.

Here’s what one counselor said:

"So many students came back from summer close to being done with their essay. I've never had a class that far along so early and I can't wait to see how it opens up their schedules and mine this fall."

-Piotr, Counselor at La Jolla Country Day School
