College Essay Writing Strategies and Feedback (for application to universities in the U.S.)

As a high school English teacher and private tutor for college coaching, I have 7 years of experience helping students understand the best strategies to access the universities that are right for them.

This course will discuss the required "Common App" essay that most schools in the United States ask for in their application process. We will read and analyze the strategies of successful college essays together, while discussing ideas and directions for the students to take personally. I will educate them on the writing methods, while offering revision suggestions along the way.

Extra information

Google Docs will work best for digital feedback.

About Me

Hello all! I am already proud that you are exploring these steps to take control of your future!

I have been teaching English in New Jersey for 7 years, with experience in grades 9-12. I teach college preparatory classes, along with AP Language & Composition. Privately, I tutor students to navigate the "college essay" question on the Common App website, or we can use a specific school's prompts to tailor their responses to fit the task! We will look at different essay writing strategies in order to find what works for you, then discuss your experiences, interests, and unique qualities that are sometimes difficult to find in ourselves right away. I guarantee you have a story worth telling, and one that a university will be lucky to hear!

Proof-reading and Editing essays, Tutoring and Comprehensive Feedback
I specialise in Proof-reading and editing essays of any sort of subject and can do this in approx. 3 hours depending on the length of the document. I prefer to utilise google documents as the individual can track the suggested editing and choose to accept/reject changes made. However, other forms of receiving feedback can be discussed. I can provide feedback post-reviewing an essay (if necessary) via skype as well as prior to editing should the person want to discuss how much editing/preferred form of editing needs to be described.
