A Six-Step Transition to Higher Education

The first-year writing course is a standard requirement for incoming college students. The distinction between high school and college writing can come as a shock to even the strongest of students. Compass’ College Writing Prep program prepares students of all levels to transition from high school to college writing.

Our experienced writing tutors work one-on-one with students to introduce college writing expectations. Many of our tutors either currently teach or are former first-year college writing teachers. The College Writing Prep program demystifies “academic writing,” equips students to ask meaningful questions about writing tasks, and provides students opportunities to practice receiving and implementing feedback through writing process reflection.

Program Includes:
  • Initial assessment essay
  • Six 90-minute 1-1 online tutoring lessons
  • Several hours of customized reading + writing assignments per week
  • 2 complete college-level essays with revisions
Program Content:
  • The Writing Process & Rhetorical Situation
  • Active Reading
  • Brainstorming & What to do About Procrastination?
  • Drafting
  • Revising
  • Proofreading

Your tutors have a rare gift for teaching. After every session, my daughter was enthusiastic and pleased with what they covered—yes, she was actually happy after tutoring sessions in the summer! It was the tutor’s ability to focus in on exactly the areas that she needed help and provide clear explanations and examples. She never felt that her time was being wasted on things she knew and often remarked that she wished more of her English teachers were like this. We could not be more pleased with Compass!
