Essay Workshops for Students
and Educational Consultants
(college admissions consultants, counselors, teachers, etc.)
I offer in-person and cyber essay workshops to teacher and counselor groups, as well as workshops for their students, in Southern California and throughout the U.S.
During my interactive essay workshops with students, I help them understand what makes a great college application essay, and take them through various writing exercises to help them identify strong topics, teach them narrative writing techniques and show them how to craft “slice-of-life” personal essays.
I use a variety of hand-outs, worksheets, videos and exercises to make the workshops lively and interactive.
Anyone is welcome to put together their own group, including educational consultants, counselors, teachers, parents and students.
Workshop Rates: I charge a per-student rate, and the total cost goes down depending on the number of students. Email me for details: EssayHell@gmail.com.
I will be giving my Jumpstart essay workshops in Laguna Beach in July. Click HERE for details.
If you want to put together your own group for a workshop, I host them at my home in Laguna Beach or a location you pick in Southern California, from LA to San Diego and Riverside. Email me to discuss details: EssayHell@gmail.com.

During these sessions, I teach counselors and English teachers what I believe makes a “great” or effective college application essay, and then how to teach their students to write them using a narrative (story-telling) style to showcase their defining qualities and values.
In effect, I share my main essay writing Show AND Tell “method,” including how I help students brainstorm and identify engaging topics, use anecdotes (mini real-life stories) to hook readers and make their essays personal and meaningful, and a slew of other tips and techniques to craft powerful personal essays.
Participants receive copies of my trade-marked handouts and worksheets (my SampleOutline™, AnecdoteBuilder™, Sample Essays, ProblemFinder™), as well as a certificate of completion and a digital badge (two options) to use for marketing.
