Graduate School Admission Essay Tutoring
Applying to graduate school is one of the most exciting yet anxious times in a person’s life. Of all the elements of a strong application, writing a unique and compelling personal statement can be particularly challenging. Even the most talented writers struggle with their admission essays because they ask students to write cohesive professional histories, a style of writing that differs from most school assignments and college admission essays. As admissions become increasingly competitive at every level, one needn’t wonder why more students are seeking the advice of an expert when it comes to crafting meaningful admissions essays.
Our admission essay program gives students the benefit of a dedicated professional coach to guide him or her from brainstorming to final draft, with the goal of developing a truly outstanding essay. Because a student’s personal statement should highlight his or her singularity—the unique contributions that he or she would make to a program—our instructors guide each student toward a final essay that is not only well-organized and polished, but which effectively showcases his or her professional strengths and individual voice.
Over the course of an admissions essay program, student and tutor brainstorm ideas for possible essay topics and winnow this list to the single best fit for the particular student and essay. Once a first draft is generated, student and tutor will collaborate on several revisions of this draft, polishing and refining it until both are satisfied with the final product. If appropriate, the tutor will then help the student tailor the essay to fit a range of application questions.
The essay is one of the few chances in the admissions process for a student to demonstrate creativity and writing skills. Our expert writing instructors can help ensure that your personal statement communicates the unique ways in which you will contribute to the graduate school.
