College App Essay




Does that phrase cause you to 

  • Panic, sweat, and/or have trouble breathing?

  • Hide under your bed?

  • Binge prestige TV to make yourself forget?

  • Yell "Hell, No!" at the top of your lungs?



It's friggin' difficult to jump in without a little -- or a lot of --  fear and avoidance.


Don't worry.

We've Got You.

Avoid the Cookie Cutter College App

Instead, show your grit, your passion, and your desire to deeply pursue your interests.

Break out of that Box

A few words from your guide:


Listen: Everyone should get the help they need.

Remember when all those parents paid bribes and lied for their kids to get into school (and some went to jail for it?) Not all parents are like that -- there are plenty out there that have great values, but let's be real... they've got the cash, so they pay thousands of dollars for a tutor to ethically help their kids with applications and the essays.

Deana Barone has been and is one of those tutors with a moral code. At the same time, she has wanted to offer her services to a broader base, especially those who might not afford her one-on-one fees. She realized the e-course was the perfect way to help those who might not have the access or the finances to afford a private tutor. Of course, if you do want her help one-on-one, she's available. But take this course first, and spend that hard-earned money for places you're stuck or a final read.

How does this e-course work?

Happy Elephant by Lineartestpilot

This online course is for you if:

  • You love making your own schedule-- you can view these at any time...
  • You are looking for a community of others going through the same experience...
  • You have access to a screen to view or a listening device to hear audio...
  • You have enough money to afford the course...
  • You are able to work on your own and stick to the course's deadlines.
Yes, please... the e-course!

This online course is NOT for you if:

  • You need to work with someone one-on-one to get anything done.
  • You don't have the money (though look above at options.)
  • You don't actually want to go to college (tell your family as soon as possible!)
  • You already have a tutor you trust and have worked with before.
I'd like one-on-one coaching instead

"I don’t know what I would’ve done without Deana Barone... The essays were completely overwhelming at first, and I was procrastinating everything, but Deana helped me plan and organize getting them done. Then she helped me figure out what I actually cared about so I could write about stuff that reflected the true me...  with her guidance I created z portfolio that set me up for my first entrepreneurial plans. She also worked with me on my CV and made me see how much I’d accomplished! I got into my first choice college, and can’t wait to go."
