College Essay Prep


Brand HSA Tutoring

The college essay is a critically important part of the application process, and your opportunity to present your best self to the admissions office. Your passions, your background, and your identity all have to be conveyed in the space of 650 words.

In this 8-week program, you will be guided through the process of writing your best essay by one of our highly experienced Harvard undergrad tutors, from brainstorming through final revisions. With a flexible start date between 7/1 and 8/31, the structure and advice from your tutor will ensure that you finish your essay with plenty of time to spare before the deadline.

You'll meet face-to-face (in person or via video conference) with your tutor for at least three hours. You'll also receive 3 rounds of critiques from your tutor, as well as weekly written feedback so that you know you are on the right track. This prep goes well beyond just proofreading and grammar - you'll better understand how your essay fits into the college application process and you'll develop clarity, conciseness, and sophistication in your writing choices. 

The result? A highly polished Common App essay that helps you to tell your story.
