Jeannette helped us achieve amazing results that went far beyond our expectations
After nearly eight years drawing upon her experience and counsel as we homeschooled three kids through high school, we were so thrilled and thankful that all our kids were able to attend their dream schools, schools that suited their personalities and inclinations. The first two are now at Princeton and our youngest was admitted to Stanford, none as a legacy. We cannot imagine not having had Jeannette help our family navigate the challenging homeschool high school years. She was our constant point person, answering our questions big and small. After getting to know our kids, she helped each child develop a personal high school philosophy and focus that included out-of-the-box extracurricular and summer projects. Jeannette was especially indispensable during the actual college application process. She reviewed our school choices, transcripts, "Guidance Counselor" reports, and our children's essays in detail, offering suggestions on content, viewpoint, and nuances that could impact admissions decisions at different institutions. Jeannette was honest with us whenever she felt something just didn't resonate, but she always respected our final decisions as parents. Her advice on which of several essays should be submitted for the Common App was spot on. When worries inevitably set in, she was that calm, patient, and encouraging voice of reassurance. As homeschooling parents, we had no idea of how competitive our children would be in applying to college. Jeannette helped us achieve amazing results that went far beyond our expectations. We thank God for Jeannette, and highly recommend her as a top tier college consultant no matter what your children's backgrounds, needs, and goals might be. To us, she has been much more than a consultant.

You have motivated me to achieve lifelong success
I couldn’t have been admitted to my dream college without you! The skills you taught me – how to choose activities wisely, how to pursue expertise and longevity, how to quantify and explain unique activities, and how to positively portray myself in person and on paper have continued to bless me in the workforce and in planning for college and the future. You have motivated me to achieve lifelong success. I’m so grateful for you!
Common sense is in short supply these days, and you've got it in spades
It is an honor to work with someone as kind and caring and knowledgeable as you! Common sense is in short supply these days, and you've got it in spades.
Without a support group, living overseas, and disconnected to American homeschooling, I despaired
We want to thank you for the amazing help you gave to us just when we needed it. I was drowning in a pool of swirling facts and websites, trying to figure out a clear path to take for (my daughter's) high school. Without a support group, living overseas, and disconnected to American homeschooling, I despaired of giving (my daughter) an excellent high school educational experience. In desperation I searched the internet, found you, made the international call and was immediately calmed by your kind and genuine interest in my daughter whom you never had met. Your advice has been invaluable and "spot on" every time. Thank you!!!!

He views you as his travel partner and his advocate
Bless you for your essay helps. You should have seen my son's face when he read through your comments. The way you communicate with him, he "gets it". You are no-nonsense, accurate, almost surgical, while placing the responsibility directly onto his shoulders... Last night during devotions, he says, 'I was super-stressed over all this college stuff, Mom. Just freaking out. You know the turning point for me? When I relaxed? It was during my phone conversation with Mrs. Webb. That's when I knew everything was going to be alright.' He views you as his travel partner and his advocate.
