IEC Essay Review

Challenged by a student whose work is falling short of where it could be? Not sure that their essay is doing its job?

New Bridge’s IEC (Independent Educational Consultant) Essay Review offers you a top-level essay analysis with editing guidance and notes on how to implement changes with your student so you will have certainty by the end.

New Bridge provides a comprehensive essay review that critiques your student’s storyline and elements of writing within the context of admissions. Each essay is evaluated to exacting standards, resulting in precise, knowledgeable, and individualized feedback on style, voice, clarity, and story logic that you can use to strengthen your student’s subsequent revisions.

The New Bridge IEC Essay Review includes encouraging commentary for the student writer highlighting what works, and a more critical evaluative commentary for the IEC to understand why the essay has gone wrong and how to redirect the essay’s focus to optimize clarity and effectiveness. Because the essay review is not simply an edit, but is intended as a teaching tool for you to learn key concepts that you can implement in your own consulting practice. You will grow as an essay reviewer and be able to apply this knowledge to future essay evaluations. Therefore, the IEC Essay Review goes beyond what a student would get on their own in a New Bridge Essay Evaluation.

While this is a full review, the document is for your eyes only. You decide what to use and what to share with your student.
