I've edited applications which helped students get into Berkeley, Caltech, Claremont, Carnegie Mellon, Harvard Law, and more! I offer end-to-end assistance with college essays and counseling.

I graduated from Harvard in 2012 with a BA in philosophy and with my MA in theology from Fuller in 2019.

I've edited applications which helped students get into Berkeley, Caltech, Claremont, Carnegie Mellon, Harvard Law, and more! I offer end-to-end assistance with college essays and counseling. I first help my students set reasonable goals by figuring out what colleges they aspire to attend, and then I help them maximize their effort by seamlessly reworking essays for all the required prompts. I help students strive to deliver the best college essays they can write while also helping them avoid the dangerous pitfall of letting the perfect be the enemy of the good. In other words, I help your child navigate the balance between aspiration and stress. I meet each client where they're at - whether that's helping them get into a local school like UC Davis or a private school like Stanford. I conduct lessons online using google docs for additional convenience. This also lets me peek in and give periodic feedback to keep kids on track without requiring a full lesson.

I also assist with political science, philosophy, theology, or literature essays at the college level. I do not write papers on behalf of any students, but I work with you to avoid critical errors on your papers (whether that's in structure, writing a thesis, etc) and to improve grammatical proficiency. I won't guarantee you an A with an hour's lesson, but I will guarantee that you will grow as a writer through us working together.

My SAT score was 2250, which placed me in the 99th percentile of all students taking the SAT. I am available to tutor for the SAT (Math, Verbal, and Writing) and certain SAT II and AP exams. I received 5s on my AP tests in English literature, US history, and European history.

I've helped students improve their SAT/ACT test scores by up to 39 percentile points! One client improved 5 points on the ACT in just 6 hours of lessons. My approach is not just to teach the "tricks" of the test, but to encourage a detailed mastery o

As the president of my high school debate team, I ran a camp to train over 40 students in public speaking and debate. During my junior year, I placed first in the county in both public forum debate and parliamentary debate, and in my senior year, I advanced to the state tournament in expository. Additionally, I was trained in rhetoric at Harvard.

SAT Reading

I scored in the top 99th percentile on my own SAT exam, and I've been working as an SAT tutor the past two years. Previous students have seen their scores improve as much as 39 percentile points. My method of teaching involves giving students college-board approved exams to see what skills are lacking, and then to hone in and teach those particular skills (inferences, vocabulary in context, etc.). I'm familiar with the new changes to the exam as of March 2016.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Jordan is outstanding, positive, generous and kind, really knows how to engage a student. Very knowledgable about the logic course being taught in my son's college philosophy course and additional helpful resources, problem sets. He is grateful for her help.

Knowledgeable and coherent

Jordan helped me create stronger arguments in my paper and made sure everything followed ASA format. She is brilliant. I would recommend her to anyone that is struggling in Philosophy. With her help, I was able to obtain an A on the paper.

Great to Work with and Knowledgeable

Jordan helped me with a paper on Descartes. She was able to improve my writing and general communication of ideas, while also advancing my understanding of the overall argument presented by Descartes.

Great Tutor

Jordan is a great tutor for logic (SL). She has adapted quickly to my "professor's way" of doing derivations and now it is quite fun to do them! She is thorough and adequately covers and helps me practice what is necessary.
