This summer, for the first time, Diana Hanson from College Mentors and Louise Tutelian from Your Essay Expert are teaming together to provide an College Essay Success Bootcamp!  Each student will emerge from the class with at least one  of his/her college essays completed (Common App main essay or one of the UC essays), as well as a clear understanding of how that essay might be able to be adapted for other prompts.  We will also provide instruction on how to approach not only the Common App and UC essays, but also approaches two common supplement types: the "why this school" prompt and the "diversity" prompt. 

We are limiting enrollment to ensure that every student will receive a great deal of personalized attention.  We will not only present information about how to go about the process of writing this special type of essay, which is so different from anything most students have had to write, but we will also work one-on-one with each student both during class and outside of class through two professional edits of a student's chosen topic.

College essays are all about storytelling, and we teach our students how to discover and tell effective stories about themselves.
