Questions:  What if my child did not accepted into the first round, will it still be helpful to do the Essay Writing Workshop? 

Answer: Yes. Absolutely!

·        It is extremely helpful to practice writing in middle school. The 8th graders will use the writing skills in their application for future summer or talent search programs, their high school governor's school program, clubs, volunteering services, internship, etc.  

·        "WRITING" is critical! It applies in TJ Essay Writing, School Research Writing, Internship Application, SAT Essay Writing, as well as College Application Essay Writing. Those students who write well usually get a better chance to be selected to top colleges and universities.
