How to Make College Essay Writing A Snap
Nail the Common Application Essay. When I tell students that all of their application essay drafting isn’t for naught, they don’t believe me. They’re incredulous when I promise that the prompts and papers they will be assigned in college over the next four years will flow easily because they’ve become muscular writers.
The proof is in the pudding – or their essays.
During the application process, these young writers have put in the hours, practicing their skills, honing their craft and developing their voice. It’s in this way that my work as a writing coach and teacher comes into play. The college essay writing assignments we do are collaborative so that when a student begins their freshman year, they feel confident with expressing their unique voice and point-of-view.
