Writing Better College Essays

For most college-bound rising seniors, the college application essay is the most important piece of writing they’ll create up to this point in their lives. And yet, just what makes for a great application essay is clouded by misunderstandings, warped by gimmicks, and misguided by poor advice. There is a better way to understand the college application essay—let the experts at Method Learning show you how. In this webinar, we will provide key information about the college application essay, including…

  • avoiding overused essay topics.
  • correcting common myths about the purpose of the essays.
  • laying out a timeline for students to prep their essays.
  • discussing what colleges and universities are looking for in students’ writing.

We’ll also be discussing a College Essay Writing course running later this summer.

Join Donald McCarthy, published author and longtime Method Learning writing tutor extraordinaire, to accelerate your college application essays!
