Compass EducationEmpowering the Individual Learner


Many students can feel overwhelmed with the college application process, and need a “guide” to get them through it. Compass Tutors support students with managing the deadlines, essay and supplement writing help, and interview preparation.  Our services include Essay Coaching, Interview Coaching, and Application Support.  We offer the highest level of personalized attention and support in order to accommodate every type of learner.


Essay Coaching

While we do not write essays for students, we can assist by helping students to follow the “writing process”, incorporating feedback from family, peers, and teachers, making revisions, and final edits.  Our goal is to support you through dialogue and the writing process, to craft a college essay that you feel represents the best of who you are, and one that you feel proud to submit to universities.


Interview Coaching

Let’s face it, college interviews can be nerve-wrecking!  Our expert interview coaches know what admissions officers are looking for. Your child’s coach will fully prepare them for any questions that may come their way, and allow them to present their best selves.


Application Support

FAFSA,  transcripts, and essays, oh my!  From developing and finalizing a list of schools to which the student will apply, to managing deadlines, and completing forms, we offer application support for every step of the way.


If you are feeling overwhelmed with the college application process, or just need a little fine tuning of the essay, give us a call today!
