College Essay Preparation/College Application Process

From: $60.00

$60/hr ($120 per 2-hour session)

This process requires intense focus by the student and the tutor on a student’s unique accomplishments, experiences, and goals. Therefore, these sessions are 1:1. We can help a student develop a series of college essays (including supplemental essays), complete a resume, and get started with the overall application process, which is a true exercise in deadline management, information gathering, and timely requests. Our center can also help parents access information on available scholarships, along with many helpful “do’s” and “don’ts.”

$45/hr ($90 per 2-hour session)

Many adults (most, in fact) don’t feel comfortable talking in front of a group, and some might even have a complex language background and wish to improve their reading, writing, and grammar skills, whether for business or personal interactions. If you’d like help preparing for a presentation, writing more effective business emails, maneuvering social media, writing effective blog entries, or just expanding your vocabulary and having better conversational English, our certified instructors are here to join forces with you — in a judgment-free zone — and help you feel confident in your unique interactions.

We also offer accent reduction instruction for anyone who desires it (and that goes for native speakers too, if you feel your level of “Texas twang” sometimes prevents others from really hearing your message).
