"The Total Writing college essay program is the BEST EVER.
My son Ryan finished all of his college essays on time and he got into everywhere he applied. He loved working with Amy. Ryan boosted his writing skills and was actually excited to write the essays.” - Jenny Peshina, Malvern, Ohio
What exactly will my teen receive with the program?
There is nothing else out there like this program to help your teen in the most effective, nurturing, personalized way and no other developed program delivered by an English teacher to help your teen get into college.
1) Weekly 1:1 tutoring with Amy.
2) Individualized feedback on each essay.
3) Access to the online program (a $647 bonus, worth up to 10 hours of learning).
4) Weekly live classes (most likely on Wednesday afternoons). to enhance your teen's writing skills - this is totally optional and another extra bonus. (I love teaching).
Can you please give me an example of a typical student's schedule with the program? How do we get started and how much time does my son have to put into his writing?
Yes! Once you purchase the course for your teen, you will receive an email with a unique link. Simply forward this link to your teen so that he or she can enroll in the course. Once enrolled he or she will be able to access all of the course material including college essay writing lessons and videos that will guide him or her through writing the Common App.
We will also give your son or daughter directions on how to get started immediately with fun, engaging pre-writing activities.
Most students, once they confirm their topic, need about 8-10 hours of writing and re-writing in order to have a fabulous, finished Common App essay and at least 4 drafts to work through and revise. The finished product can be the most beautiful, sophisticated, engaging piece of writing ever produced.
Our students remain proud of their efforts and relieved to complete this main essay and then start their supplemental essays!
Do you guarantee that my son/daughter will complete the essay using your program?
We cannot guarantee that your son/daughter will complete their essays because ultimately, the writing and re-writing is up to the students!
Ultimately, finishing the essays, and writing them well, comes down to motivation and discipline and goal setting (the Writing Schedule helps tremendously as do the Live weekly tutoring).
The program will guide your teen through the process in the most efficient user-friendly way possible.
But, we all know, it is up to your son/daughter to write and complete the essay and to have the final say that their work is "done".
We can't be ultimately responsible for confirming if the essays are finished as this is your teen's work; but, we certainly do provide the best of our teaching through excellent writing guidelines, Live help, invaluable feedback and tips to help your teen make that decision and feel confident to finish and submit to the colleges.
I know my daughter needs a lot of help with writing her college essays and I know how important these essay are - but what type of student is this course best for? (My daughter is independent yet really nervous about applying to college!).
This program is perfectly suited for a high school senior who wants to write excellent college essays so that he/she turns in the very best college applications possible.
Students who thrive in our program want to master sophisticated as well as basic writing to produce the best writing of their life. These students know the importance of good writing, they want to write well, and they remain open minded to receive critical feedback. The students who use their perseverance to complete their work and feel the need for our help will improve the quality of writing and thrive. Note: this program is not a hand-holding, proof-reading, we-write-it-for you service.
But, if your child does wants only me or one of my excellent tutors to work Live with them from start to finish through tutoring sessions instead of utilizing the efficient program, we totally get that and you can book 1:1 time as needed or in packages!
