SCHOLARSHIP AND COLLEGE ESSAY COACHING
How do you create a compelling, memorable, and impressive college application essay? College admission deadlines are approaching and admissions officers want to know more than your GPA and ACT scores. They read your essay to visualize you fitting in and being successful in college classrooms and dorms. Strong writing can make the difference for an admission or scholarship.
Workshop presenter Debbie Merion, MSW, MFA co-authored Solving the College Admissions Puzzle: A Guide for Students and Families About College Selection, Essay Writing and High-Stakes Testing.
Her website: www.essaycoaching.com .
STUDENTS: Bring an essay draft and you will receive personalized feedback on how to strengthen your writing and find your voice. If you don’t have a draft ready, you’ll get started during this workshop.
PARENTS: As your teen creates their essay, Deb will answer your questions about how to survive the challenging college application process.
DATE: Tuesday, October 6th
Time: 2 Sessions to Choose from: 4-6:00 p.m. or 7-9:00 p.m.
