What Clients Say

Emerson College: Your College Coach"Jenny is amazing. First of all, she's an amazing writing coach, and a college application is all about the writing. And she's an amazing strategist: She came up with a plan for me to take an interest of mine and turn it into a project that ended up getting media coverage. (I'm sure that helped my application stand out.) She's also an amazing SAT coach: My SAT writing score went up by 240 points after Jenny coached me. I was accepted, early action, to what might be the top communications program in the country. Thanks to Jenny. (Thanks, Jenny!)"

Your College Coach: New York University"The college application process is nerve-wracking for students and it's murder on parents. Jenny was a godsend, keeping us all centered, never letting us forget the big picture. She says, 'You're perfect for the college that's perfect for you,' and she means it. It informs her approach, in its entirety, to her work. She gets to know the student, she listens, then develops a strategy to capitalize on the student's interest or passion. In our child's case, it was a passion he wasn't really conscious of. And then she makes sure it all gets done, on time and in a way that, in hindsight, seems to have assured a successful outcome. Needless to say, Jenny will be supervising our next child's college application process."
