Mastering the Essay
Writing Lab is designed for students struggling to articulate their thoughts in essay-writing. At school, students write only a few essays a year. Our program steps in, teaching students how to think as well as how to write, in a dynamic, hands-on way.
At Writing Lab, students learn to intelligently brainstorm and write engaging 5-paragraph essays in 45 minutes. From ideas organization to revision, students receive expert guidance and climb to higher or perfect scores.
Our Writing Lab students develop motivation, confidence, and valuable essay-writing skills, earn a key edge on future high school and college admissions exams.

I got into Princeton! I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you for all the hard work done on your part and the constant support I received. I would not be here had you guys not believed in me.
“With your professional and kind guidance, our son received a very high score in the writing part of the PARCC test. He has improved significantly since taking classes at MEK.”
Although it was an intensive program and it took up most of my summer, my improvements are clear, and I’m much more confident going in and taking the test than I was before the program.
Writing Lab meets twice a week. Each session lasts 60 minutes total, efficiently and expertly guiding students through each stage of hands-on learning.
