About Jennifer

Hello, students! I am a graduate of Princeton University with a Bachelor's degree in English and a certificate in Theater and Dance, as well as an alumna of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, England, with a Master's degree in Text and Performance Studies and a specialist certificate in Shakespeare.

While in England, I was Director of the London office of the Edge in College Preparation -- an elite, US-based educational consulting company -- as well as the company's head College Admissions Counselor worldwide. My specialty is in full-scale college counseling services, including test preparation, curriculum and activity planning, navigating the college admissions process, writing and editing essays, and interview technique.

I have extensive experience tutoring the English/Reading and Writing sections of the SAT and ACT, and am a highly qualified editor, available for help writing and refining admissions essays, job application letters, and all other short-form prose. I am also a near-native speaker of French, with experience tutoring for academic courses, the SAT-II, and the AP exams in French. I work with high school and college students, as well as mature learners.

I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

From 2009-2011, I was the Director of the London office of the Edge in College Preparation -- an elite, US-based educational consulting company -- as well as the company's head College Admissions Counselor worldwide. My specialty is in full-scale college counseling services, including test preparation, curriculum and activity planning, navigating the college admissions process, writing and editing essays, and interview technique.

I am a graduate of Princeton University.

English

From 2008-2011, I worked for the London office of the Edge in College Preparation -- an elite, US-based educational consulting company. I was Director of the London office and head College Admissions Counselor worldwide from 2009-2011; and for my entire tenure with the company, I tutored (amongst other subjects) the English/Reading and Writing sections of the ACT and SAT.

I am a graduate of Princeton University with a Bachelor's degree in English.

French

I am a near-native speaker of French and a graduate of Princeton University.

After graduating from college, I moved to southern France, where I was a Resident Director for Abbey Road Overseas Programs -- a US-based language immersion program. Later, after completing graduate school in the UK, I served as Director of the London office for the Edge in College Preparation -- an elite, US-based educational consulting company. While with the Edge, I tutored high school students in French for purposes of academic coursework, the SAT-II, and the AP exams.

Literature

I am a graduate of Princeton University with a Bachelor's degree in English -- a qualification that required not only a senior thesis, but rigorous comprehensive exams, covering the whole of English-language and critical literary history.

I have extensive experience tutoring students in general literature for academic courses, as well as the SAT-II in Literature and the English AP exam.

Proofreading

I am a graduate of Princeton University with a Bachelor's degree in English, and am an absolute stickler for grammar, vocabulary, and style.

From 2008-2011, I worked for the London office of the Edge in College Preparation -- an elite, US-based educational consulting company. I was Director of the London office and head College Admissions Counselor worldwide from 2009-2011; and for my entire tenure with the company, I tutored (amongst other subjects) the English/Reading and Writing sections of the ACT and SAT.

Subsequent work in language services (including formatting, editing, transcription, and related tasks) has only sharpened my editorial skills and my eye for detail.

Theatre

A professional stage and screen actor since adolescence, I am also a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London with a Master's degree in Text & Performance Studies and a specialist certificate in Shakespeare. I am a member of the Screen Actors Guild, Actors Equity Association, and British Actors Equity, and have appeared on stage in both London and Los Angeles, as well as on US national television and in several films. I am currently a member of Native Voices at the Autry's resident theatre ensemble, as well as of the professional comedy troupe 'The Mayflower Welcoming Committee.' I also have extensive experience teaching and directing youth theatre in both elementary school and summer camp settings.

Writing

From 2008-2011, I worked for the London office of the Edge in College Preparation -- an elite, US-based educational consulting company. I was Director of the London office and head College Admissions Counselor worldwide from 2009-2011; and for my entire tenure with the company, I tutored (amongst other subjects) the English/Reading and Writing sections of the ACT and SAT. I have a particular specialty in writing and editing essays, including college admissions essays, job application letters, and all other short-form prose.
