The Secret To Writing

Graduating High School Seniors transitioning to college and College Students

We provide coaching and counseling services for students during the summer before their first year of college, as well as coaching support throughout a student's freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years of college.

Students- here's how we can help you:

  • The Secret to Writing

    Pre-college coaching on strategies, processes, and academic tools to help you succeed inside and outside the classroom. Why pre-college coaching? College is on a totally different level from high school. There is more work. The expectations from teachers, or in this case, professors are higher. And the task of balancing academics, extracurricular activities, and your social life is amplified. And even if you graduated from your public or private high school with stellar grades and ranked at the top of your class, you’ll find that college, irrespective of the type of college, is structurally different from high school and therefore presents new learning challenges.

  • The Secret to Writing

    Weekly 30 minute to one-hour academic and college life coaching sessions during the semester (approximately 16 weeks). Herein is where we have a coaching session with you each week to offer guidance and support on your path through college. During the weekly calls (or video conferences), we review and track your academic progress; strategize with you on how to earn higher grades on quizzes, tests, and papers; and, coach you on ways to stay ahead of upcoming events, be-it academic assignments, athletic commitments, or social obligations.

  • The Secret to Writing

    Phone and e-mail on-call availability for time-sensitive academic, social, and cross-cultural coaching needs. We are available to you on an on-call basis in order to help you avoid pitfalls or road blocks in college, as well as to offer you strategies on how to succeed in college.
