How to Write the College Essay (Common App Personal Statement)

Suzanne P., J.D.
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(3)
In this small group workshop with personalized feedback, students will brainstorm content, learn about structure, craft powerful imagery, and outline five potential topics in preparation for writing a college essay that dazzles.

Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
Students will learn how to write a dazzling college essay that highlights their core values and demonstrates what they will contribute to the college community.
I am a NYS certified English teacher, college consultant (UCLA Extension, 2018; member, HECA & IECA), higher education administrator, and former attorney.

Since 2018, I have offered college counseling to juniors and seniors both in a school and as an independent college consultant. Each year, I provide feedback on 80+ seniors' Common App personal statements (college essays). To do so, I teach this introductory college essay workshop, and I continue to work with each senior individually -- sometimes through as many as nine and ten drafts -- until they are fully satisfied with their essays. I also advise students on the national QuestBridge scholarship application.
Homework Offered
After the workshop ends, students should write their first drafts and share them with me for feedback. Students may also join my individualized feedback sessions for additional support.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class

Grades Offered
All materials will be provided. Students should be prepared to type responses on their computers or write responses in a notebook.
