My students have been accepted to wonderful colleges and universities all over the country. Although I cannot take credit for their success, most of them have been accepted to their top choice schools. I strongly believe that students who write narrative essays that reveal their self-defining qualities, true character and individuality are most likely to land exactly where they belong. It’s all about finding the right fit.

Here’s what some of my former students and their parents said about their experience working with me:

“Janine had great tips on how to pick a topic. She showed my son how to focus on a specific theme, rather than making the essay too broad. Janine and my son met a few times, and at the end of the writing and editing process, he had a college-admissions-ready essay that he was able to submit to the school he had chosen. (He got in, by the way, and is very happy!)”

–Susan Elliot, whose son is a freshman at Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA

“Janine Robinson helped three of my children with their college essays–from development of the topics, to flushing out each child’s particular writing skills, to the end result being a cohesive, well-crafted and organized essay.  With her guidance and aid, my children ended up in their top-choice schools: Stanford, Georgetown and University of Washington.  Thank you, Janine!!”

–Lynn Ross, whose children are attending Stanford University, Stanford, CA; Georgetown University, Washington D.C.;  and, the University of Washington, Seattle, WA

“Janine has been tremendous in helping me discover the direction and message I was trying to convey for a couple different essays; I would have been so lost without her. Because of Janine I was accepted into a very competitive program at my university.”

–Dylan Roley, Chapman University, Orange, CA (Dodge College of Film and Media Arts)

“Janine shines in her ability to guide students in making unique topic choices. I have no doubt that her expertise was instrumental in my son’s admission to all of his university applications and entrance into a distinguished freshman program at his school of choice.”

 Debbie McMullen, whose son is attending the University of British Columbia.


“I already had a good topic to work with for my essay, however, I had no idea how to organize it.  Janine Robinson helped me immensely by giving me a simple outline to work with so that my essay was clear and well structured.  I was very pleased with the outcome.”

–Hilary Jonus, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ
