Class Structure for the Common App and Universal College App Essay
Session 1 Brainstorming Techniques and Learning the Essay Structure -We will help the applicants reflect about their personality, their life experiences and what make them unique and exceptional. Once we discover their story, we teach them how to create a structure for the essay, which the applicant will then use to write a first draft. Their homework is to finish their draft at home and come back on the next session with a finished draft.
Session 2 to 4 Revisions Drafting and Review – We will confer individually with applicants and we will discuss what works and what do not. The applicant uses our conference notes and suggestions to write a second, third and fourth drafts and focus on the content and their own voice in writing.
Sessions 5 to 6 Final Revision and Editing – This is where we finalize up to the tiniest details of grammar, punctuations and some other things that need to be looked at.
