Your advice way back about possibly "retaining" our son to give him more time to mature was the best thing for him
Thanks again for all your help. It was invaluable. We couldn't be more pleased with your help over the years. Your advice way back about possibly "retaining" our son to give him more time to mature was the best thing for him. Thank you... thank you!!!!! I will always be so thankful that you mentioned that - because I wanted to do something like that, but I needed your backing to give me the conviction that it would be best for our son, based on your experience. He definitely needed the two extra years and now he will be much more prepared to succeed in every way.
Grateful is the word that keeps coming to me
We have really appreciated the direction and dedication you have given to us and our son. And we also were blessed that you would take care of us as missionaries. You encouraged us along the way when the tasks became daunting and unknown. I don't think we could have done this as well without you. Grateful is the word that keeps coming to me. Grateful to you and grateful to God for inspiring you the way He has.
Our lives are better because of your input
Two days ago I drove five hours to Pennsylvania, packed my daughter up, and drove the five hours home to Michigan after her first successful year at Grove City College. She got the leadership scholarship and we were all delighted as life would have been much more difficult without it. She was also given a first year alumni scholarship as well as a grant, which really helped. I should probably let her thank you herself again, but I can't help sharing the good news: she has adjusted to college life despite getting very sick first semester, she volunteered a great deal with International Justice Mission, participated in some other clubs, and has made some true friends. She is cognizant of the enormous blessing she experiences at GCC in learning from top-notch, caring professors. Thank you so for your help. I am thoroughly convinced your guidance made an enormous difference. Our lives are better because of your input.
Couldn't imagine how you could have done what you do any better!
Your advice is worth its weight in gold! We are so grateful to have found you. We sincerely feel you made all the difference in making it possible to pull together our daughter's crazy transcripts and educational experience (the result of years of illness requiring our use of many schools and education sources) into something that presented the excellent student she is in a way that was not only good enough to get her into her highly selective dream school, Colorado college in what they described as “an extraordinarily competitive year,” but she earned their highest honor and scholarship award, their Leadership Scholar! You were instrumental in making this happen. And, because we didn't find you until we were under huge time pressure, you helped us do it in a time frame that seemed impossible - and kept us calm while doing it! We can't imagine where we would have been without you. Our daughter is still floating on clouds three months after her acceptance! We couldn't be more grateful. Your support was so competent, compassionate, efficient, and professional - couldn't imagine how you could have done what you do any better!
She has been our safety net, plumb line, and, I’ll admit, therapist
I have to admit that I was quite skeptical when I was told about college consulting service couple years ago. Consulting services were for people who sent their kids to private preschools in Manhattan preparing them for Ivy league, not for homeschoolers. I chose to homeschool my children all the way so that they could be free from the brick-and-mortar public school system and so that they could think outside the box. Why would I pay a consultant now, after all these years? I scoffed at the idea. When my son reached the age where he started thinking about colleges, I sought out advice from experienced homeschool parents who had successfully sent their kids to selective schools. I asked around about how to write transcripts and counselor letters, how to spend summers, and basically how to make a holistic picture. Among all the advice I received, one name I kept hearing was Jeannette Webb. After a lot of prayer and discussion, and a little bit out of curiosity, we decided to contact Jeannette, and I will always be glad I did. Out of all of her exceptional qualities, honesty is the thing I appreciate the most. As a homeschooling parent, I often wonder where my child stands in the mayhem of millions of college applications. Jeannette’s honest opinion has been our wakeup call and an anchor through the whole procedure. She has saved me tons of time I might have spent getting frustrated by all the different resources and tips on the web. When we needed to make a decision, her word often affirmed that what we were about to do was the right thing for my child. The confidence and hope that grew throughout the application procedure is something that we couldn’t buy. Her advice on my son’s essay was clear and straightforward, yet didn’t override his writing style or intentions. Compared to the quality of service she provided for us, her rate was really reasonable. When we were discussing my son’s activities for junior summer, Jeannette asked us to hang up the phone because she felt she needed more time to think and she didn’t want to waste our time and money. She got back to us after 30 minutes through an email. I truly appreciate her thoughtfulness and stewardship. Moreover, Jeannette has been a steadfast prayer partner throughout this journey and a good friend who is willing to listen to our worries and concerns. She has been our safety net, plumb line, and, I’ll admit, therapist. When my son got into a college we thought was totally out of reach, no wonder Jeannette was the first person that came to mind. I know that without her guidance, we wouldn’t have come this far, or still remain sane. Without any doubt in my heart, I am thrilled to recommend Jeannette to anyone. You won’t regret it.
