About PrepNow College Essay Coaching

At a time when admission officers are heavily focused on GPAs and
test scores, the college essay is your child's chance to stand out. Yet it's
not uncommon for even the most talented writers to find themselves
struggling with the process.

The essays ask students to write deeply personal narratives, an
intimidating prospect that requires a rhetorical style very different
from most high school assignments. 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
a meaningful college essay.

Our College Essay Coaching program gives your child 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
school - our instructors guide your child toward a final essay that is not
only well-organized and polished, but which effectively showcases his
or her personality and individual voice.

At PrepNow and our sister program StudyPoint we've helped tens of
thousands of students through the years. We're leaders in private,
one-to-one tutoring, and our results speak for themselves.
