As a university admissions reader and an essay coach, I have the privilege of reading thousands of essays every year; this experience gives me insight into what makes an essay distinctive and how to help students from all backgrounds share their stories.
One of the most essential components of a well-written college essay is a clear voice. I help my students find that voice and gain confidence as they delve into who they are, the things that are important to them, and what they most want to share about themselves. In the end, they will write a thoughtful, values-based narrative that only they could write.
This is important! Colleges don't want to hear from any one other than the student; and they don't want to read an essay appropriate for a high school English class. Instead, colleges want to hear directly from the student and get to know them better. My students learn exactly what this means and they work hard to successfully articulate their responses to a variety of challenging application questions.
Students planning to audition for selective BFA programs need help from the best. I'll connect you with the former admissions director of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts to make sure you are fully prepared!
