Take your college application essay
from average to accepted!

Writing your application essay shouldn't be the hardest part of getting into college.

And, with College Essay Solutions’ time-tested approach, it won’t be.

From the first brainstorming session through the Final Final Final draft, our approach to college essay tutoring is thorough, tireless, and customized to your specific needs.

Application Essay Tutoring by CES


Colleges want to get to know you. By getting to know you first, we’re better prepared to help you express your individuality.


Students receive comprehensive notes and suggestions – written directly on the document – so the essay improves significantly with every draft.

Polishing and Finalization

Drafts are exchanged until the essay has reached its highest potential, with no limit on time or number of drafts. Then CES reviews the essay one final time, immediately before submission.

Please note that College Essay Solutions will not, under any circumstances, write an essay for a student.
Throughout our tutoring process, the student remains the author of the essay.

Gregg supported my daughter Enya in writing her essay and she got a positive answer get of 4 colleges. And the her dream to get into UCLA acting and film came true. His insights and the way he gave confidence and supported her were incredible. You are really worth everything we invested into and more. We are eternally grateful. Marie Diamond.

Craig is fantastic. He has helped me get into my top college choice, medical school, residency and now hopefully a surgery subspecialty fellowship. He understands what they are looking for while allowing you to maintain your own voice. I would recommend him to anyone looking to really make an impact with a personal statement or essay! Thank you Craig!

Craig has been a lifesaver as far as essays go for my son who is applying to college. We had a college advisor who completely dropped the ball and was completely unreliable. I was referred to Craig, and he has been outstanding. He helped my son through numerous essays, and was comepletey available to review and speak with my son when he needed it. He really helps polish essays, and is also there to help you think of ideas if you need it. He is there from start to finish, or for polishing if that's all you need. I also found his rates very reasonable for his phenomenal service. I would not hesitate to use Craig again if the need arose. I only wish I found him sooner!

After not getting much help from our essay writer, we were referred to Craig. He was so quick in responding and jumped right into helping my daughter with several supplemental apps. They worked very well together and my daughter just got into NYU! We could not have been happier with Craig. Definitely feel strong about recommending him.
