Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
I have over a decade of experience working in a variety of roles in higher education. Most relevant is the three years I spent working in admissions at an Ivy League university. I have also volunteered as an alumni admissions interviewer for my alma mater, Brown University. Other roles include academic advising, academic coaching, and teaching.
Homework will be assigned between meetings, which will include essay writing as well as potential activities for further self-reflection. l will set progress goals with input from the student. 
The learner will provide a draft of the college essay (if applicable) and/or college essay prompts to work on.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
