Testimonial Tuesday: High School Admissions Essay Workshop

Calling all high school teachers in New York! I'm officially a registered vendor with the Department of Education in NYC and would love to come to your school and help your students with their admissions essays. I'm so excited to continue my pro bono partnership with The High School for Environmental Studies. I loved all the students I met during Ms. Brooks' AP Government class. Please reach out to me here if you'd like to partner!

"Yelena was so engaging and insightful! She visited my students during the Fall at the High School for Environmental Studies, as they were preparing for the college admissions process. The process can be so daunting for kids, and she really helped to ease their concerns about what to include and what not to include in their personal statements.  My seniors were so grateful to have her come in! She provided them with so much useful, valuable advice as to how to individualize their college essays.  She answered all of their questions as clearly as she could, as they vigorously jotted down notes and ideas while Yelena spoke. I am happy to say that many of those very same students, especially those who went for early acceptance, have been accepted to so many great colleges and universities. Thanks so much Yelena for all of your help! And we look to having our students work with you again next year!" —Erika Brooks, Social Studies Teacher, The High School for Environmental Studies
