College Essay Writing

In the college essay coaching program, S4 teachers work one-on-one with students to help them craft essays that will stand out to university admissions officers. Whereas the college application outlines an applicant’s credentials, like GPA and SAT scores, the college essay showcases an applicant’s individuality — one’s unique characteristics, personal interests, and communication skills.

In the coaching sessions, S4 teachers guide students through a writing process that includes:

  • Analyzing essay prompts and pinpointing the criteria that admissions officers use for evaluation
  • Choosing a meaningful theme and narrowing the topic
  • Determining an effective essay structure
  • Researching colleges to make essays specific
  • Brainstorming, outlining, drafting, revision, proofreading, and editing

Our goal is to ensure that students’ college essays are clear, concise, truthful, sincere, vivid, coherent, unique, and memorable. We want students’ essays to demonstrate a firm grasp of grammar, vocabulary, sentence structure, and rhetoric. Above all, we want students to feel confident that their college essays will genuinely intrigue the audience and separate their application from the pack.
