We do not write college admissions essays for the student. Students do the work. Know that admissions officers are skilled readers of admissions essays and can easily detect an essay that has been written by a parent or professional writer. Our intent is to help students think about and communicate their story in writing. We also aim to help students with foundational writing skills. While we cannot guarantee that a student will be admitted to a particular college, we can say that our services are time-tested and provide added value to the development of a student’s writing skills.
