This class is a great way to get some small class teaching from Debbie.  Her talk at the Ann Arbor Public Library on Oct. 7, 2019 was standing room only:

“I liked how the lecture was fun and interesting. You kept my interest the whole time! ” –N.B. July, 2019

“Now I’m not going to procrastinate.  I learned it’s better to finish my essays ahead of time, to have more time to make edits and revisions.” — R.N. July, 2019

“I liked how we were given prompts that were relevant to some essay prompts, because it allowed me to realize what I could talk about in my essay.  My advice to other students:  Pick a topic that you are passionate about, not what you think will impress the admissions officers!”–H.H.  June, 2019

“This class helped me learn more about structuring college essays.  I liked how easy going it was, very supportive and helpful. –A.T. June, 2019
