My name is Jacqueline G. and I have spent more than 20 years working in education. My photos above will give you some sense of the range of students I have taught and counseled, the fun we have had, and the support I give my families. My practice area at WyzAnt centers around the following services: college counseling and advising, standardized test preparation and subject area tutoring for high school, college, graduate students and working professionals. My office is in Annapolis and I serve Bowie, Greenbelt and Silver Spring via the local libraries. I should be able to conveniently meet your tutoring needs. Go to one of the sections listed below to find the information to help you meet your desired tutoring services.

My college counseling practice advises families to help their children select and qualify for the most competitive colleges in America.

Every student interested in financial aid that I worked with received a merit award in at least one school as part of their financial aid package. I have personally visited and met with admissions staff at more than 100 colleges around the country. As the Regional Coordinator for the Higher Education Consultants Association, I am devoted to placing students in colleges that will change their lives. Let me help your family.
III. STANDARDIZED TEST PREPARATION FOR COLLEGE: ACT, PSAT,SAT, AND AP EXAMS
Standardized test preparation is one of the essential steps to qualifying for most colleges and merit aid. I prepare a personalized plan to help your child ensure strong performance on the ACT, SAT, SAT IIs, PSAT and Advanced Placement examinations. Many families come to me after the failure of prepackaged programs to significantly improve their child's score. The testing plan I develop for your family will reflect a comprehensive diagnosis of how your child performs on tests so that we focus most of our time on strengthening areas where he or she is weak, versus a scattershot approach of "one size fits all." For AP exams, I have taken authorized classes by the College Board and earned their certification to teach A.P. U.S. History, World History, U.S. Government and Politics, Comparative Government and Politics, English Language and Composition, and English Literature and Language. I am an experienced teacher who taught these subjects as a faculty member in colleges, and at college preparatory high schools such as St. Albans School for Boys, the National Cathedral School for Girls and Georgetown Day.
IV. SUBJECT AREA TUTORING
I tutor in History, English, Business, Public Policy, Non-Profit Management and Social Studies for students at all levels: high school, college, graduate school and working professionals. I work with students one-on-one, in person and online. Students call on me for successful completion of papers, research and doctoral thesis development. Visit my course descriptions for a full listing of all my tutoring subjects. Peruse my photos above to see the fun I have had teaching and traveling with students.
V. Cancellations and Missed Appointments
As mentioned in my profile, there is a fee assessed for appointments cancelled or missed with less than 24 hours notice. Late cancellations occur a fee of $25. Missed appointments will be billed the amount of 1 hour of tutoring: $75.00.
VI. Extended Radius Fee
For in-person travel to homes outside a half-hour driving radius from Bowie, there is a 20 minute travel charge added to tutoring hours. Online tutoring is available to such clients at no extra charge.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to helping you with all your tutoring needs.
