Even though many people say that moving is the most stressful life experience, teens and parents alike might argue that college admissions actually takes the cake. Oftentimes, high schoolers go through the college admission process on their own, and their parents often feel just as lost when it comes to putting together an application. LTWN is here to fix that! LTWN’s college admissions essay coaching is a multi-step process designed to maximize the quality and the uniqueness of your child’s college application. We want to assist your child with writing the absolute best essays, which, besides helping them gain entry into competitive universities, will also aid them in understanding who they are, and give them entirely new possibilities for imagining the future!
Before you read any further, we’d like to emphasize that we do not write any of your child’s essays. However, we will mentor them in writing exemplary essays. Here, at LTWN, your child comes to find their unique voice and can put their own best foot forward. This dedication to authenticity ensures that your child one day walks into their college of choice, knowing that their words made the difference in the admission process.
No matter where your child is in the process, we’re here to help. Some students come to us when they are brainstorming, while others might already have written several drafts of their essays. We offer a series of modules that all our students complete according to their personal application plan, and for which they receive feedback from our experienced writing instructors. These modules include the following elements: (1) Creating essence statements, (2) Writing Common App Main Essay aka the “Personal Statement”, (3) Composing supplemental essays, (4) Polishing activity lists, (5) Researching college details for essays, (6) Requesting recommendation letters, (7) Delivering “Thank You” emails, (8) Organizing resumes, (9) Constructing scholarship essays, (10) Drafting Letters of Continued Interest, and Appeal Letters. These modules ensure all our students undergo the necessary process of research, writing, and self-discovery that will enable them to compose essays showing off their dynamic personalities.
Your child will receive six one-to-one sessions with our writing instructors, a time for which they can gain further elaboration on written feedback, and glean more advice on research for their applications, amongst other things. Over the course of the workshop, your child will complete their common app/personal statement essay, along with six supplemental or scholarship essays. Students seeking help for extra essays outside of this base package will be able to consult with Learn to Write Now to discuss the additional essays and their costs.
Over the years, we have worked with students who have gained admissions and scholarships with outstanding essays into some of these prestigious institutions: Brown University, Case Western Reserve University, Cornell University, Carnegie Mellon University, Dartmouth College, Emory University, Georgetown University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Indiana University (Kelley School), New York University, Northwestern University, Ohio State University, Princeton University, Purdue University, Stanford University, University of California, Berkeley, University of California, Los Angeles, University of California, San Diego, University of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago (GPPA), University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, University of Pennsylvania, University of Texas, Austin, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Vanderbilt University, Washington University in St. Louis, Yale University.
No matter where your child ends up, we would consider ourselves fortunate to be a part of their journey!
“The coaches at LTWN are the absolute best and helped me thoroughly to plan and even to enjoy writing the nerve wracking college admission essays. Before I signed up for this coaching service, my parents and I were pretty clueless as to how to approach the various essays including common app, personal statement, supplemental, and scholarship essays. However, between June and mid-October of my senior year, I was completely done with all my essay requirements and thoroughly ready to submit my application for Early Decision/Early Action deadlines. The best part of this essay service is that I could work on the essays remotely and still get guidance and feedback on my essays periodically (the coaches provided great accountability and flexibility given the rigors of my academic and sports schedule) or I could avail a one on one time with a coach (I just needed only two such sessions, one at the beginning and one at the end for brainstorming and a final revision respectively). No gimmicks, no shortcuts, all you need is an attitude to learn from the experts in the field and a lot of your elbow grease for all the writing. – A proud student of LTWN currently studying at Carnegie-Mellon with a great scholarship.” ~ A.P., Class of 2020
