About Ivy Scholars
Every summer, Ivy Scholars College Application Development councils our rising seniors on navigating ApplyTexas, Common App, and Apply California, helping our students shape a narrative of their progress through high school. Our aim is to help students develop into the most competitive candidates possible by enriching their educational experiences and writing ability. Work intensifies when it's time for the main essays - we coach students through conceptualizing, drafting, editing, and finalizing essays that portray them in the best light possible. Once main essays are complete, we work with students on each supplemental information section to ensure a clear, consistent message that can demonstrate the best of the student's abilities to their target universities.
As an Essay Mentor, you will help high school students develop their writing abilities when applying for top US universities by providing writing coaching, written, and verbal feedback. You'll join a team of Admissions Mentors who walk students through the entire college application process, helping them develop their interests as young scholars and leaders. As students work with Admissions Mentors to accomplish ambitious academic and extracurricular goals, you will develop your understanding of the application topics for the Common App Personal Statement, Apply Texas Essays A and B, and the supplemental essays required by individual universities. You'll use this knowledge to help our highly accomplished students find the best approach to every college admissions essay. Time with students will be split between remote work by phone or Ivy Scholars' video-chat, and work on-site in Ivy Scholars' Sugar Land office. Schedules are flexible.
