Just for Parents

We teach parents how to engage their teens in a meaningful conversation about self-perception. You might be pleasantly surprised at the valuable insight you discover together, and how much better prepared your child will be to write effective college application essays.

Parent Info Sessions

To stand out in a college essay, your child needs to write something meaningful that highlights a positive trait and personalizes the application packet. But it can be hard for students to write about themselves, especially when the stakes for college admission seem so high.

We know you want to help. But do you know how? We’ll guide you. For FREE.
