Full of professionalism, efficiency, and a sharp knowledge of the college admissions process
The senior year of high school can be a difficult time because it's full of uncertainty regarding the future, but working with Mrs. Webb gave me the confidence and self-assurance that I was making the best possible decisions. Full of professionalism, efficiency, and a sharp knowledge of the college admissions process, Mrs. Webb guided me through my college applications from start to finish, and shed so much light upon what previously seemed to be a complex and mysterious process. I don't think I would have had half the peace of mind (or joyful results!) as I would have without her guidance. I'm so grateful for Mrs. Webb's insightful and thoughtful presence!
She's a great combination - sensitive, but firm when she needs to be
Jeannette is an excellent resource for homeschoolers (and others) who are shooting for the top selective schools. She is knowledgeable and extremely professional and responsive. Furthermore, she has a calming personality and takes a common sense approach in the crazy stressful application process. She's a great combination - sensitive, but firm when she needs to be. We used her services primarily for essay review and one-off questions (as opposed the full scope of services she offers). When we came up against the Jan 1 deadline, she responded swiftly and graciously. Definitely worth the investment. Our son was accepted to a number of top schools.
You have been our trusted advisor and friend over the years and we are so grateful for your encouragement and support
We just returned from the admitted students’ weekend. I met the admissions counselor who was the first reader on my son’s application, and I was blown away that she remembered specific details about him! She said that after his interview and reading his app, she knew he belonged there. We are so glad we contacted you at the start of junior high to discuss our homeschool path. It’s been a comfort having you as a sounding board to discuss curriculum choices, testing, extracurriculars, summer options, and more. You asked us insightful questions to help us narrow choices based on his passions and not just to jump through a hoop or check off a box. With your guidance, he was able to present himself objectively and authentically in his college applications. What a blessing it is to celebrate the end of this odyssey with a happy ending: acceptances to nine colleges with over $300,000 in scholarships. He is over the moon about attending his dream school in the fall! Jeannette, you have been our trusted advisor and friend over the years, and we are so grateful for your encouragement and support!
There would have been little chance for me to go to a top-tier school without your assistance
Looking back over the entire college application process, I kept coming back to the realization that there would have been little chance for me to go to a top-tier school without your assistance. Mrs. Webb, (as American expatriates) our family has been quite isolated from the homeschool educational community and even such things as basic application resources that might have been found in a public library. You alone provided all the advice and assistance we needed to be able to put together a viable college application. Thank you! The fall was stressful for several personal reasons, so the calm that came from trusting your feedback kept me level-headed and on track. Thank you for the hours you spent going over my documents. Your questions and comments on my essays encouraged me to speak clearly and creatively. It was actually fun to see my applications come together! After practicing an interview with you, I felt confident and prepared. You were able to critique me without discouraging me, a skill I truly admire! Last, but not least, my mom told me that you were praying for me. I feel humbled and grateful for your investment in my life and hope to be able to invest in others in similar ways. In less than two months I will be leaving The Middle East, bound for Cornell. I’m so excited about the prospect of learning more about physics, life, and godliness. Thank you for your part in all of this!
Daniel, The Middle East
During our first teleconference, I felt that I had someone who was rooting for me
Thank you so much everything you have done for me these past three years. If it had not been for your help, I do not think I would have achieved what I did as a homeschooler and had the self-confidence necessary to apply to all the schools. Thank you for helping me through the college process and advising my family through the challenging moments of our home school experience. There were many individuals (teachers, mentors) who did not fully support me before I became a homeschooled student. You were truly there when it mattered. For the first time, during our first teleconference, I felt that I had someone who was rooting for me and stood for the same educational values that my family had always stood for.
