The Common Application
College Essay Coaches
Whether you are a student or a parent, you have found a supportive space to guide you and your family through the complete college essay writing process from the 650 word personal statement, to supplemental essays, and beyond.
Our success stories include students who are accepted—and thrive—at universities across the U.S. including UC Berkeley, University of Michigan, Emory, Northeastern, NYU, Villanova and many more.
Our key is that we reduce stress so that the entire family feels nurtured while students are free to express themselves and discover their own voice. Yes, our students have an impressive roster of acceptances, but even more significant to us at College Essay Coaches, is that our students find their confidence and take pride in their work.
What We Do
We customize the college process for each applicant. At our initial, one-on-one intake meeting, we brainstorm ideas by providing writing prompts to determine what is important to each student.
What do you think about the world around you? What inspires you? What makes you laugh? Cry?
We distill the most poignant and meaningful moments in our students' lives that result in impactful and powerful essays — in their own words.
From there, we design individualized plans to get essays completed before deadline. We create a sense of freedom and ease around writing. One caveat: Expect to laugh a lot!
