College Essays Are a Breeze with the AJ Team!


Not sure where to start with college essays? Wondering what colleges are looking for? Our college essay coaches are here to help. While we’re happy to make recommendations for students of all ages, rising seniors benefit the most from college essay work.

We also limit our college essay support to students who aren’t already working with an independent college counselor. Independent college counselors typically support their students through the college essay writing process. If you aren’t working with a counselor yet, AJ Tutoring can offer comprehensive support throughout this admissions process!

Our college essay coaches work with students 1-on-1, taking them through our 10-session course that covers every step from prompt selection and brainstorming to final editing. 

Over the course of 10 sessions, students typically complete three college essays (often including the Common App personal statement and the UC PIQs if needed).

However, we know that students and college applications are unique! We can design a flexible program for students who:

  • would like greater support throughout the college essay planning and writing process
  • already have college essays written and want a final round of feedback
  • …are looking for anything in between!

Our essay coaches can meet in person or online to accommodate your busy school year schedule. 

Give us a call at (650) 331-3251 or (408) 345-5200 if you’d like to discuss college essay support for your student!

Let's discuss your student's academic tutoring, test prep, or college counseling needs!

Our test prep, academic tutoring, and college admissions counseling professionals are here to help you navigate the test taking maze, share our experience with your local school, and inspire your student.
