Hello, students! I am a graduate of Princeton University with a Bachelor's degree in English and a certificate in Theater, 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 chief 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, and interview technique; but my particular area of specialty is helping students to craft and perfect their essays.

I look forward to working with you and your students!

Knowledgeable and instructive tutor

My 10th grader is struggling with her English essay writing. Jenny spent four sessions with my daughter. She gave very constructive editorial opinions with teaching writing skills as a backbone. We are very pleased with Jenny's help and will continue lessons with Jenny.

Quick and informative!

Jennifer was super easy to work with and helped me organize and structure my personal statement in under two hours. She really tried to get to know me so that my essay reflects exactly how passionate I am for the program I’m applying to.

Effective and Fast

We have been working with Jennifer for months now. She is very effective at giving my son directions on how to improve his college essays and her speed of response is unmatched! We highly recommend Jenni.

The Best

Jennifer is amazing. She has helped my daughter not only with her application process but also cultivated a wonderful working relationship with her. I would highly recommend Jennifer and hope to have her work with my daughter on a regular basis.

Best college essay tutor ever!

Jennifer has been the most helpful and efficient tutor. We worked on college essays together. She took the time to get to know me in order to help me compile thoughtful and unique essays. She was a very fast editor. Anything I sent her was returned with all of her edits and thoughts within 24 hours. Even though she primarily helped me edit my college essays, I actually learned a lot about writing in the process, which has helped me significantly in my college courses. Jenny is an amazing person to work with and I couldn't recommend her more!

Awesome

I want to thank Jenny for all her hard work and patience with my student these last few months. It was a real pleasure working with Jenny and I know she helped my student put more thought into how she studies. I look forward to working with Jenny next year if possible.
