“The SYI mentoring process was outstanding. The interplay between my daughter and her Mentor was playful and effective. Within a session’s time, the SYI Mentor was able to capture the intent of my daughter and guide her to fully express herself. It was an amazing process to watch and listen to!”
From One of Our Mentors:
“The first question I ask all my students when we begin the application essay process is, ‘What do you think the admissions board members most want to see in your essays?’ Most of the time, the young writer’s answer is some form of, “Well … that I can write perfect essays.” What pressure! The fact is, there’s no such thing as a perfect essay. So, if the stakes are perfection, there’s simply no way to succeed.
But, then comes the moment I love most of the whole process, because I get to transform that impossible task with this truth: what they’re actually looking for is to SEE you. Test scores can be measured on a black and white scale, but essays allow admissions board members to discover your heart, your passions, your personality; and they can discern whether their school is a fit for you, and if you’re a fit with the specific incoming class they’re crafting as a whole.
From there, the entire process turns into a treasure hunt. Together, we explore the young writer’s life for stories and ideas and memories which best show who he or she is. Young writers end up not only creating essays of which they can be proud, but also with a more solid awareness of their strengths and what unique qualities and contributions they bring to their families, schools and communities. I love mentoring young writers on this important journey, and am grateful for the opportunity to witness their discoveries along the way.”
