College Essay Assistance

Do NOT take lightly this incredibly important part of the college application process.  The college essay is your chance to shine, to differentiate yourself from the tens of thousands of other applicants.  You need to reveal your true inner person so that college admissions counselors can make sure that you and the college are a good fit.  Bring us your already-written essay(s) for review, or let us help you write something the college admissions counselors have never ready before, something fresh and innovative!  The following services can be applied to as many essays and supplemental essays as you like within the time constraints!

ASSISTANT COACH:  2 hours worth of essay review, editing, recommending and follow-up review - $300

HEAD COACH: 5 hours worth of essay brainstorming, building, writing, reviewing, editing, and follow-up review - $600

"I would highly recommend Mr. "A" to any parent who has a student looking towards college.  With his help, both my Son (College Sophomore) & Daughter (College Freshman) got into top Colleges."

WHEN SHOULD WE START?  It's never too early to begin the process of college coaching, but Straight "A" recommends connecting with your Coach sometime between the 8th Grade and the Freshman Year.  Tuition will cover the student for all of high school, so it is most cost effective to start early.  Our proprietary process keeps the Coach and student in contact at least once per month the entire time.  We will NOT accept students after June of the Junior Year, except for the Live Online Interactive Coaching.

In order to offer the best College Coaching in the country, we have to limit the number of students with whom we work.  To check for availability, please call us. We work as a team for ALL of our students, but we assign one Coach to be the "Personal Trainer".  That  Coach will give you a personal phone call to follow up. Once both parties are convinced we have the right fit, we can proceed.

“Overall we were extremely satisfied with Mr. A as Zachary's test prep and college coach.  Zak was less than enthusiastic at first about "a College Coach", but after his first meeting with Mr. A, he quickly changed his mind! Mr. A has a unique ability to relate to his students on a number of levels, communicating in a way that promotes independent thinking and confidence. Although Zak did not take the SAT before meeting with Mr. A, we are certain that the SAT test prep classes increased his scores substantially. We would highly recommend Mr. A and Straight A Academy to all high school students would encourage parents to consider using these services early in the high school years.”

"I was very satisfied with our family's experience at Straight "A" Academy. Our son increased both his SAT and ACT scores after taking the SAT Prep course. This increase helped him to qualify for a larger scholarship at the school of his choice. Our other son needed guidance with constructing a college essay. Mr. A met with him one on one and offered guidance on improving this very important essay. Whatever your child's academic need, I would recommend Mr. A and Straight "A" Academy!"

 - Kristen Beals

 “We learned about Felix and Straight A from friends in town and we could not be more pleased. Felix has the knowledge and experience we were looking for to help us plan our son's transition from high school into college. They also have tutoring on site which we found to be very reasonable because it was one-on-one, not group session tutoring that we had used in the past. Mr. A is also helping our son with his senior project - it is very ambitious and would not have been possible without his contacts and experience. We strongly recommend anyone to come and speak 'Mr. A' and judge for yourself, we believe you will also find it to be a very good decision.”
