"There is no doubt in our mind that without Robin's coaching, our son would not be in the very prestigious BFA acting program at Emerson College." ~Denise K.

"<Ms Irwin's> direction with regard to the college selection process has been incredible. <She> has been with <our son> every step of the way.  Along with the individual coaching, <her> continual feedback and encouragement though this process has enabled him to grow and improve on each audition..." ~Mary Ann S. (Son accepted to Penn State BFA program)
