Mission Statement

Write Start Prep is a tutoring and test prep company based in Sherman Oaks, California. We guide students to become active readers and writers, helping them to stand out on standardized tests and in their college essays in order to gain admission to the schools of their choice. We work with local students in-person or online, and, through online sessions, we work with students across the country.
