At Forbes Educational Consulting, our approach to the essay is designed to tackle both the dread and the procrastination that comes along with it. In a day-long workshop we help you jump-start the process, offering guidance on topics, one-on-one attention, idea development, draft reviews and more. When you leave, you'll be well on your way to a final draft. Subsequent emails, revision and editing sessions help refine the text - until you arrive at a polished final product.
Alison Forbes, M.Ed., together with essay coach Martha Solomon, bring decades of teaching experience and writing expertise to the process. They know what admissions officers are looking for. They know what makes a strong essay. They know how to help you find the subject that best reflects your personal strengths.
Some of our clients admit that, in the end, writing the application essay was not only satisfying but, well, fun. And their acceptance letters, of course, prove that their time, effort and commitment were worth it.
