Does LLA help with college essays? Yes. We've worked on all kinds of college essays, including the common app and shorter ones. For example, we recently helped improve a single essay: please tell us an interesting or amusing story about yourself from your high school years that you have not already shared in your application.
Can you help with essays unrelated to college applications? Yes, absolutely. We can help you polish your product. Or assist you from beginning to end.
Do you do copyediting? No, we're not into copyediting, which is very specific and involves looking at typos, punctuations, and grammar. There are software and apps that can do that.
At LLA, we will revise, reword, and reconstruct your text wherever needed. We will offer in-depth feedback on styling and mistakes. In effect, our feedback is broader, more structural. We believe this is far more beneficial in improving college essays.
What about help with AP LANG (polishing articles or essays or critical )? Yes, we help with specific AP lang writing sections and skills. Your free consult will help us assess your requirements in order to draw up a custom plan for you.
Can LLA help students improve Reading Comprehension skills? No, we don't help with Reading Comprehension. Are LLA consultations virtual only? We can have a virtual session. However, in the past, some students have preferred in-person ones, so we can schedule our consultations based on student preferences.
Do you connect students with college admission staff/officers who can help with individual applications? No, we don't. We might invite faculty to speak to students about common errors and good strategies, but cannot personally connect students to specific officials.
I have a short story. Can LLA edit and refine it? Can you guarantee publication of the short story? Yes. We will work on your story to get it in shape. Your story hook, setting, pacing and characterizations form key elements of storytelling. The amount of work will depend on the length of the story and what stage it is currently in. Your free consultation will help us understand your situation better. No, we don't guarantee publication. Honestly, in this subjective world of creative writing, no one can.
Have you worked with students and authors before? Yes, we have worked with numerous students and authors for more than a decade. Every individual is treated like a family member who wants to improve his/her writing skills or written material. We've provided help with novel chapters, short stories, non-fiction narrative personal essays, flash fiction, and college essays. Visit link to read more about our editor.
Do you help high school students with the process of story or essay writing? Yes, we do. We have 1, 2, and 3-month capsules (1 session/week). Each session runs for 50 minutes. During the consultation, we will assess the student's writing samples and decide which capsule will work best for him/her. The capsules are designed to ascertain the students' strengths, tendencies, and where they go wrong. We will give them writing assignments and work on their products. We will share sample essays and stories to guide the student, focus on certain writing elements, and help them drive home their point. NOTE: We have limited space for these capsules since they are 1-on-1. Please contact us to check for availability.
Does LLA give discounts or scholarships to students or authors? Yes. If students/authors wants to extend their current LLA plan or add another plan, we will work with them on specific discounts. We have the Rising Star Student Program for scholarships. Based on writing skills or talent, if we deem a student to be a Rising Star, we will offer free session/s to work on his/her written product to further the piece and offer general improvement strategies.
Does you have a Referral program? Yes, we do. After a new enrollment, we will contact the referring individual or student to offer a free LLA coaching session or an Amazon $20 gift card.
