Founder of elite college prep agency Mint Tutors, Ashley Wellington shares hard-hitting essay-writing advice tailored to each student's strengths and potential pitfalls, inspiring students to write as if guided by their own personal college admissions tutor. Your Own Pocket Essay Tutor Ever wish you had a private tutor to help you write your admissions essays? With this book, you do. Ashley Wellington, founder of the elite New York college prep agency Mint Tutors, has personalized her hard-hitting advice just for you. Her unique "boot camp" process starts by helping you identify your student type, then figure out which topics will highlight your best (or worst) attributes to admissions officers. Thinking about writing an essay on . . . * Sports? This popular topic is often limiting, but Wellington will help you come across as talented--and also thoughtful and well rounded. * Your trip to Egypt ? Wellington will help you avoid common travel clichés that make admissions officers groan. * The color yellow ? Wellington will make sure you sound quirky and creative in the right way. Even the most impressive students can sound ordinary by following the formulaic approach of other essay guides--and in this über-competitive landscape, you need an edge to stand out to top schools. Wellington's tutees have gained acceptance to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT, Georgetown, Duke, and other elite institutions, and with this book at your side, you can join their ranks. From the Trade Paperback edition.
