College Application Essay Coaching

The three most essential parts of your college admission application are: GPA, SAT/ACT test scores and your Personal Statement.

Many of the top colleges and universities receive up to 30,000 undergraduate admission applications each year.  The easiest way to stand out from the crowd is to craft an excellent application essay or “Personal Statement.”

Most students have great difficulty knowing how to start or what topic to choose for their essay.  I get to know you so that I can help you create your perfect essay which demonstrates why you are the right fit for that school.

To try and meet the overwhelming demand for Personal Statement help and editing that I receive every application season, I created the Personal Statement Blueprint™ to help students learn how to write a personal statement for college.  For some students purchasing the Personal Statement Blueprint and then having me review their essays at the final editing phase works well, for others, having me help them through the process from start to finish works best.

What My Personal Statement Coaching Typically Includes:

  1. I meet in-person, video conference (via Skype), or on the phone with parents and student to discuss the student’s background, interests, and activities inside and outside of school
  2. We then work through my step-by-step blueprint to create a unique essay for each student that will grab and keep the reader’s attention.
  3. Once the student has created a good first draft, we work through one or two revisions to make their essay shine.
