College Essay Preparation

Your College Essay

Writing a personal essay for college admission is a unique opportunity. You want to present yourself authentically and with your personality. Working one-on-one with Liza will provide you with the opportunity to articulate yourself distinctly and descriptively.

The Process

  • The first step of the process is Topic Selection. I will work with you to brainstorm and identify essay topics that will best highlight your individuality and your strengths. This is typically 1 to 2 sessions.
  • We will then meet to outline your essay, finding the points you most want to make with examples from your own experiences. This will take 1 session.
  • You will then write a number of drafts. We will review each and work together on goal setting for the next draft. This typically takes 3 to 5 sessions.
  • We will edit your draft producing a final essay that you will be proud to present in your application. This will take 1 to 2 sessions.

You can see that writing a college essay takes time and investment. I highly recommend you start this process the summer before your senior year.
