Next Level Educational Services, LLC is a premiere educational consulting company in Northern Virginia. 
I have had the pleasure of working with this company (Mrs. Darlene Roberson) in the development and implementation of two programs in the high school that I work.  Mrs. Roberson brought a plethora of innovative ideas and suggestions that would benefit our student population of approximately 1700 students.  Mrs. Roberson truly aids our high school by preparing them today for the jobs and careers that will be available tomorrow.  I see this company, and especially Mrs. Roberson, on a national level providing services and developing ideas that will enable educators to assist students on a level that meet their educational, career, and personal / social needs.  I would highly recommend Mrs. Roberson to any individual or group that values education and seriously is looking for ways to improve their student development and future needs.

I would like to recommend Ms. Darlene Roberson as a great college consultant.  Just recently, I graduated from undergrad, but before doing so Ms. Roberson helped me get to this wonderful place.  She was my high school guidance counselor and I couldn't have asked for a better one.  Not only was she encouraging and patient, but also very knowledgeable of the process and which particular schools were interested in me.  Her expertise also helped me gather money to pay for college through scholarships and grants which can easily amount to an overwhelming experience when you are doing it alone.  She genuinely cares about each of her students and it means a lot because of the monumental journey each one of her students were beginning to embark upon.  You can't go wrong with Ms. Roberson, be honest with her and your abilities, and believe me, you'll go FAR!!

Mrs. Roberson has played an instrumental role in helping me seek and achieve my educational goals. She provides her students with the tools and skill set to elevate their standards and achieve above and beyond.  For example, she meets with her students and demands that they set personal and academic goals for post graduation. She demands a lot out of her students, but prepares them well. Mrs. Roberson has a passion for seeing students excel and reaching their full potential. She takes a personal interest in her students’ future by making them provide a detail plan of their goals. Mrs. Roberson has an open door policy and always invites her students to discuss personal and educational matters.

Mrs. Roberson was an amazing counselor and personal mentor for me in high school and college. She assisted me with every step of the college admissions process. Mrs. Roberson helped me find the college that was the best fit for my academic and personal desires. She also provided me with a stellar letter of recommendation and assisted in the transition from high school to college. She has been a role model and mentor for me and I am truly grateful for her guidance. As a recent college graduate, I value the skill sets she provided to me such as the importance in networking, setting goals and never giving up on your dreams. She continues to be an extraordinary example of how hard work and diligence can lead to an abundance of success.

Mrs. Roberson has gone above and beyond her duties as my guidance counselor since the 10th grade. Her dedication and encouragement really inspired me, especially during my senior year of high school. She helped me get through the process of SATs, ACTs, and college applications as she did for many of her students. After deciding on the college I wanted to attend, I was in desperate need of scholarships. Whenever she could, she recommended me and had me apply for every scholarship that she knew of and worked closely with the career counselor to ensure I took advantage of every scholarship opportunity available.

After applying for several scholarships and writing a number of required essays my parents were still a little concerned about me getting enough scholarships to send me to an out-of-state school. About a month before my high school graduation, Mrs. Roberson found out about a scholarship at a school I knew about in Texas, but had never considered.  With the college application deadline quickly approaching she helped me complete my application and apply for the scholarship at that school. By the time I graduated from high school I had received several scholarships and a four year partial academic scholarship with in-state rates at a university in Texas.
As a recent college graduate, I am forever grateful for the love and support Mrs. Roberson as shown me over the years. It’s rare that you have a high school counselor who takes a special interest in your personal achievements and academic success. Her caring nature even spilled over into my college years and even now as a college graduate. Without hesitation she has written numerous recommendations for me and is always willing to be a reference on my behalf.  Most importantly, she continues to give me guidance as I decide on a career path and graduate school program. I cannot thank her enough for all that she has done for me.

Mrs. Roberson truly made the entire college application process a lot more manageable and easy to understand. There are times when I even felt overwhelmed with finishing high school and trying to figure out where I wanted to go to school, but everything didn't seem nearly as bad because of Mrs. Roberson. Being able to meet and talk and just get everything out in the open helped tremendously in finishing up my applications. I can honestly say that if it wasn't for her support I would not have gotten into Howard, and I most certainly would not be in the position that I am now.

I would like to take this time to offer my appreciation for the invaluable services provided by Next Level Educational Services, LLC. I was becoming frustrated with the college application process as compared to when I went through the college admission process years ago.  My son also felt the frustration before working with Next Level Educational Services, LLC.  After working with Darlene Roberson, my son felt confident and completed a few of the applications on his own. Next Level Education Services, LLC, offered its family friendly college counseling services and my son’s college application process was smooth sailing from there on.  My son was accepted to six of the eight colleges he applied to, and will be attending Old Dominion University.  I could never really express how pleased I was with the services offered by Next Level Educational Services LLC.  I would highly recommend Darlene Roberson and the services she provide.

As a recent graduate of Old Dominion University, I reflect on my past experiences and how individuals such as Ms. Roberson positively impacted my life. As my high school academic counselor, Mrs. Roberson always kept me on track. She was very strategic as an adviser/counselor. When applying for college, she provided time lines that kept me on track. As a sophomore, she strongly advised that I have a list of 5 to 10 schools that caught my interest. She urged me to perform the necessary research and then make an effort to visit those schools with my family. As a junior, she provided much guidance in filling out college application forms and helped revise my resume to make me an exceptional candidate. I owe much of my academic success to her. Her passion and desire to serve her students were evident in the ways she treated each student and her work set the standard for what I would look for in future academic advisers.

If there is one person that has made a tremendous difference in my life, I would have to say it would be Mrs. Roberson. She has definitely helped me pave the way to a brighter future. She is the one who made me realize that ultimately I am the only one who can really make the right decisions for what is best for me and my future. She goes above and beyond what she should to do to help you. Hands down, Mrs. Roberson is the best counselor ever and really deserves an award!
