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.
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:
30 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
