College essays are critical for your families’ kids to get into their target schools and earn scholarships. Yet, most students struggle with their essays – writing about uncompelling content and using a poor structure. Our new partner, Prompt, is the easiest way to provide your families with affordable, expert support on essays.

Prompt has reviewed tens of thousands of college essays, helping thousands of students gain acceptance to their dream schools while earning millions in scholarships. All you need to do is take one minute to create an account with Prompt, offer essay review packages to your families, and let Prompt’s team of Essay Specialists handle the rest.

I did a quick interview with Brad Schiller, Prompt’s CEO. Check it out and then use the steps below to get started.
