About Jennifer

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!

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 Chief College Admissions Counselor worldwide. I offer full-scale admissions counseling services at both the undergraduate and graduate level -- including test preparation, curriculum and activity planning, navigating the college admissions process, essay writing, and interview technique; and I am happy to provide guidance on any combination of these elements.

I am a graduate of Princeton University, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and Kings College London.

Proofreading

I am a graduate of Princeton University with a Bachelor's degree in English, and hold a double Master's degree in Text & Performance Studies from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and King's College London. I have been working for more than 10 years as a writing specialist and 'essay doctor.' I have also spent the past 6 years working in language services -- editing and formatting, as well as translation, transcription, subtitling, and other related tasks. My particular area of focus as a tutor has always been helping students to craft, edit, and perfect their formal writing -- from college admissions essays to academic writing to job application letters and everything in between.

Theater

I am a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London with a Master's degree in Text & Performance Studies and a professional certificate in Shakespeare. A working actor and playwright, I am a member of SAG-AFTRA, Actors Equity, and British Equity; and have appeared on stages and screens on both sides of the Atlantic. I also have almost 20 years of experience teaching and directing youth theater and coaching Shakespeare and general audition technique.

Writing

I am a graduate of Princeton University with a Bachelor's degree in English, and hold a double Master's degree in Text & Performance Studies from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and King's College London. From 2008-2011, I was Director of the London office and Chief College Admissions Counselor worldwide for the Edge in College Preparation -- an elite, US-based educational consulting company. I have subsequently worked in language services -- translation, transcription, formatting, subtitling, and other editorial tasks. My particular area of focus as a tutor has always been helping students to craft, edit, and perfect their formal writing -- from college admissions essays to academic writing to job application letters and everything in between.

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.
