The Personal Statement Course (Counselors)


This online video course provides counselors with everything they need to help their student write an amazing personal statement for college. With over 10 hours of content, including Q&A sessions with me (College Essay Guy), it's the most comprehensive course of its kind. 

There's a big difference between writing something awesome (as a student) and helping someone else write something awesome (as a counselor).  With this in mind, this course includes content geared specifically to counselors that answers frequently asked questions and provides solutions to common struggles that counselors face.

Here are just a few of the questions I answer on this course:

  • What do I do when a student shows up to an initial one-on-one essay session with an essay draft? With no essay draft?

  • What's the line between supporting and enabling a student (i.e. how much help is too much)?

  • What are my core counseling values and are they actually aligned with the way I'm leading my sessions with my students?


Module 1 - Brainstorming 
Module 2 - How to Structure Each of the Four Essay Types
Module 3 - How to Revise an Essay
Module 4 - Ethan Gives Feedback on Real Essays
Module 5 - How to Make Sure an Essay is Doing Its Job 
Module 6 - How to Bring an Essay to Life With Details and Color
Bonus Modules - Advanced Techniques

Remember, this course is Pay-What-You-Can! If you can't afford the suggested price, request a lower price by clicking on the orange PWYC button on the registration page. Access is really important for me, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.


What Other Counselors Are Saying:

“My favourite part [of the workshop] was outlining the essay. I also liked all the PDF’s and recorded sessions so I could listen on my own and repeat parts as needed.”

Colleen Reed, Counselor

“I am extremely grateful to have been given tools that I can both relate to and apply with my students. I will listen to Ethan present every time I am given the opportunity—he is that good!!!”

Valerie J. / Counselor, Oaks Christian School
