Brainstorming Help

I bring my knowledge of research in the teaching of writing when I help you with your college essay! Specifically, this mean I can help you brainstorm efficiently and revise effectively.

The first draft is the hardest, but don't sweat it: just set your timer and type without even looking at the screen. (Certainly do NOT re-read, nor should you edit, correct spelling, and so on.)

 

Looking for ideas? Below are some of my favorite prompts, some of which are adapted from the College Essay Guy:

If you really knew me…

Tell me about...

 

...the moment you left childhood behind.

...A food or tradition that reminds you of your family/ of home.

...an "essence object" (a favorite object that possesses special significance to you)
