This Week at Options: Back-to-School, Intro to Canadian Supplement Writing & Supplement Writing Workshops

Here is what’s happening at Options Solutions this week:

Saturday, September 29th (West Vancouver)

Our Supplement Writing Workshop aims to help students complete the supplemental writing portions of their university and scholarship applications, including essays, personal statements, activities summaries and resumes. Writing Workshop serves as an accessible introduction to university level writing, and students will leave the sessions with an understanding of effective written language use. We accommodate students working on a variety of projects all in the same session, and our writing coaches work personally with students on their unique pieces.

Saturday, September 29th (South Surrey)

Our Back-to-School Study Skills Workshop is an instructional as well as practical, hands-on work session that is offered at the start of the school term to help students get a start on forming solid executive functioning habits. Students will leave the workshop armed with the knowledge, skills, strategies, and reference material required to prepare them for academic success. They will also leave the workshop with a concrete understanding of their own executive functioning strengths and weaknesses and with an individualized plan to help them develop as a student.

Saturday, September 29th (South Surrey)

Our Intro to Canadian Supplement Writing Workshop introduces students to writing components for Canadian applications. The session will include a presentation that outlines the typical essay and supplemental writing prompts required by major Canadian universities and programs. Students will then be given time to brainstorm and engage in practice writing exercises. Options Solutions writing coaches will give students one-on-one feedback on their drafts, and all students will leave with a clear direction on how to tackle and complete their application essays.
