Essay Writing Tips

If you read these resources and still can't get started, see your counselor or your English teacher for some additional help.

Make sure you ask at least one knowledgeable person to read your essay. More than one is even better! Possible candidates for feedback on your essay include: Parents, friends, teachers, other relatives or your English teacher.  Be open to constructive criticism!


Your college advisor is a great person to ask to read help edit your application essays or personal statements!
