College Essay CoachingYoung Writers Workshops


Whether you are taking AP everything or struggling to maintain a C in English, we know you have what it takes to write an exceptional college essay: you have unique experiences, talents, and ideas. You have a story. We help you find that story and shape it into an essay that will distinguish you in the eyes of admissions officers.

Our Process: At EssayHouse, we walk each student through the process of answering the classic college application questions encoded into every common app prompt:

Who are you? What is important to you?
How would you add value to a college community?

We offer our Jump-Start Workshops as well as One-to-One Coaching

We expertly guide each student to recognize his or her stories and ideas, harness the raw material, develop it, and transform it into a compelling, polished essay.

We encourage daring: Every admissions officer urges writers to take risks," and we understand the parameters of creative boldness in college application writing. We guide students to recognize and use risk effectively.

We nurture voice: We show young writers how to write so that they sound like themselves.

We ensure high standards: Each student achieves authentic style paired with logical coherence and grammatical correctness.

We ensure confidentiality.


In our small-group workshops, young writers discover the joy of writing freely about what matters to them. Meeting in a salon-type setting, we use prompts that spark creative expression and experimentation. Our writers enjoy the supportive, buoyant camaraderie of their peers and positive feedback that helps them gain confidence and find their voice. Young Writers Workshops run from fall through spring.
