I work with students in two ways.
If you want a college advisor that cares about your success just as much as you do, I am your coach.
Wherever you are at in the college process, I can help you.
#1: I help students to achieve their goal SAT or ACT score and prepare for their dream schools.
Mastering the SAT and ACT is about so much more than learning math.
Raising your score doesn't need to be difficult, you just need to learn the right strategy. To achieve your goal score and prepare for top schools, you need to learn how to manage your time, manage your mind, and master the concepts on the SAT and ACT. Results don't take time. Results require the right method.
That's why I created a simple, effective process to help you achieve the results you want. 100% guaranteed with lifetime access. It's called the Success System.
To raise your score, you need three things: skills, strategy, and support. We've combined all three to help you get results before your next test day.
You will start by learning how to master every skill on the SAT and ACT.
Then you will learn the expert strategy you need to implement on test day to score highly and improve quickly.
And you will receive so much support from my team and I that your success will be inevitable. This includes 24/7 email & text support, lifetime access to weekly live tutoring, and much more.
The SAT/ACT process isn't just about a test score, it's about transforming into a more confident and skilled version of yourself. This is your opportunity to become the person who is ready for your dream school.
If you're ready to begin this work together to achieve your goal score, reach your dream school, and accomplish more than you ever thought possible click below to learn more!

Jocelyn followed the set curriculum we have in our program to a T and was accepted into her dream school early.
Linda raised her score by 170 pts in 10 weeks.
Linda says “this program allowed me to have access to people who were willing to help me and reach exclusive resources and information I couldn’t normally get in any other programs."
Caro feels more confident in her math abilities after just 7 days.
Caro says "after being in the Success System for a week, I have 24/7 support from my tutor. I feel like this is one of the best decisions I could've made for myself and my future."
#2: I work with students 1 on 1 to get accepted into some of the most competitive schools in the country.
If you’re a junior or senior who wants to attend a highly competitive school, perfect grades and scores are just the beginning.
As someone who attends Stanford, one of the most competitive schools in the country, I know exactly what you need to do to stand out.
You need a flawless academic record, impactful extracurricular activities, and compelling essays that will set you apart in a competitive applicant pool. I help students combine these elements of their application to tell an award-winning story about themselves. Admission officers will see through any attempts to fake who you are. The best application is one that authentically represents YOU. Working together, you will:
- Create beautifully written college essays that stand out, convey your story, and fill you with joy when you read them
- Learn how to expertly discuss your activities and prepare for interviews
- Receive answers to all the questions currently leaving you stuck
- Beat procrastination and finish your college applications early
- Complete tasks on time with a streamlined process so that you can stop feeling frazzled or behind
- Create more time and ease for yourself by learning how to create better results in 1/2 the time
I got into Princeton and Yale! To say that I'm satisfied would be a HUGE understatement.
"I recently just worked with Janae on my college essays and to say that I’m satisfied would be a HUGE understatement. Her editing has really just made me feel confident in my writing and feel confident that I’m putting my best foot forward in the college application process, especially to highly selective schools. Janae does several rounds of revisions, so every single time she looks at it with a fresh perspective and my voice really shines through. In the end, everything adds up and you get an idea of who I am and that’s the whole point of these essays - to convey yourself the best that you can. Coming from someone who isn’t the best writer, working with Janae has really made my essays shine. I would like to thank Janae and her entire team so much for helping me with these essays! Making this small investment into my future was definitely worth it as she invests so much care and effort to help me achieve my goals."

I was accepted EARLY into Stanford! Becoming familiar with the application process earlier on helped alleviate stress from senior year because I felt more prepared.
"I began working with Janae in my sophomore year of high school and I'm so glad to have had her support throughout the past three years, especially during junior and senior year when school & the application process became more rigorous. In my sophomore & junior year, Janae's team helped me prep for standardized testing and the skills I learned from SAT/ACT tutoring translated over to help me perform well on AP exams as well. During my meetings with Janae, I expressed that Stanford was one of my top schools and she helped me prepare for the college application process. Beyond understanding what the process entailed (supplemental essays, rec letters, additional info section, etc), Janae and her team also shared insights about helping my voice shine throughout my application as a whole. Even as a sophomore, I learned about what a college application "theme" was, and becoming familiar with the application process earlier on helped alleviate stress from senior year because I felt more prepared. A huge thank you to Jan(a+)e Tutoring and I'm excited to join Janae on the farm next year!"

The level of help Janae provided was outstanding and now when I think of her name and what she did for my twins I say to myself, "That was the best money I have ever spent for tutoring".
I have twin daughters and both were applying to top-notch colleges. Both have 4.5 or higher grade point average and my first thought was "they can do this on their own". What I witnessed was that with the experienced help from Janae they had the extra boost of confidence that they needed to get through this process. First one of the twins started tutoring with Janae for the SAT test and her assistance and knowledge about the test and teaching of the material was totally superb. Then because we had such a great experience with tutoring for the SAT, we continued on for college preparation and essays. Janae is kind and caring and very passionate about her work. She spends time with your child and is open to phone calls and texts at any time for any questions. The level of help Janae provided was outstanding and now when I think of her name and what she did for my twins I say to myself, "That was the best money I have ever spent for tutoring". Janae helped my twins perfect their essays for all of the colleges they were applying to. My daughter got into her ED school, Boston University. I do not think any of this process would have gone as smoothly without Janae. The college application process is scary for a teen and I can say that I feel with Janae Young's help both of my kids got through it and feel confident about their applications and their essays. This is a big step for any parent and child and I think that Janae Young is the best choice to help with college preparation. This is money well spent for your child's future!!

Janae was there to support me every step of the way, always answering my questions with impeccable detail and insight. I was accepted into my top choice school.
“Over the past few months, I have worked with Janae on my college essays and on creating a schedule that helped me stay organized during the entire application process. Going into my senior year, I was worried about crafting the perfect application and finding the best school for me. Through all my worries, Janae was there to support me every step of the way, always answering my questions with impeccable detail and insight. She is incredibly genuine, making me feel comfortable reaching out to her whenever I needed help. Janae ensured that I felt confident in all the materials I submitted and that each aspect of my application was truly a representation of me. With Janae’s help, I was able to get into my top choice school through early decision. Thank you Janae for believing in me and for helping me make my dreams a reality!”

"What I have loved about my experience with Janae is that this isn’t just a business to her; it’s the opportunity to share her knowledge and insight with students who were once just like her not too long ago."
At the start of my first session with Janae, I was immediately blown away by her dedication to the quality of my application persona and my essays. At the time, many of my friends were telling me about their experiences with their outside counselors—how their counselors didn’t fully listen to their needs and treated the experience as more of a job/transaction than a willingness and eagerness to produce a stellar application. Janae was nothing like this. She listened to my ideas, worked to understand what I liked in a college when creating my list, and strategically considered the themes in my application persona when brainstorming how to answer essay prompts. What I have loved about my experience with Janae is that this isn’t just a business to her; it’s the opportunity to share her knowledge and insight with students who were once just like her not too long ago. She sees herself in us—students that are bright, passionate, and willing to put the work in—and is eager to help create an application that we are proud of. Janae has texted me at 1am about essays and met with me at 7am for sessions. She has been there to see my growth as a writer through my essays, and as a person throughout this application process.
I genuinely don’t think I could have done it without her: I had a foundation of ideas and the diligence to create thoughtful, creative essays, but Janae shaped them into something truly remarkable. She makes the college process—an inherently stressful time—enjoyable through setting deadlines and being accessible through text or email when you have any questions. She pushed me when she knew essays weren’t as strong; she challenged me to think outside of the box, and without her voice encouraging me, seeing my potential, I wouldn’t have the application I do today. So, I encourage anyone thinking about getting an outside college counselor to sign up with Janae because she is someone who, like the student, wants to and is proud to see results."

"Janae didn’t just tell me what to fix, she taught me, and this made me become a better writer. I ended up getting into my top school and I couldn’t have done it without Janae."
I started out the college process very unsure of where to start, how to even write my supplements, and with a personal statement that was far from polished. However, from even the first session with Janae, my worries faded because she made all of this work seem attainable.
What really eased my mind was having a plan about the major themes of my application: I knew from the start that my whole application needed to be cohesive and I never would have been able to plan this out with Janae. Along with this, she helped me plan and strategize when I could write these supplements and how each one would look on the application. Some of my friends’ college counselors told me that the writing didn’t feel like theirs, but I never felt this way when working with Janae. In the sessions, we always worked together and I always felt that my voice was heard and never diminished. I appreciated that even outside of sessions, I could just text Janae and she would find the time to look over my writing to provide feedback. Janae is mature and professional. On top of this, she was able to be even more empathetic to this process since she recently went through it. Janae didn’t just tell me what to fix, she taught me, and this made me become a better writer by the end. Now, I am far more confident in my writing skills. I would recommend Janae to anyone that is considering working with her. I ended up getting into my early decision to Boston University and I couldn’t have done it without Janae.
