About Jenna

I am a recent graduate with a BA in English literature. I love to read all sorts of literature and I am an avid writer to boot. Very passionate about learning and love to instill the same passion in those that I teach. Born and raised in England so I have a thorough knowledge of English and European history, moved to the USA in my last two years of high school so I also have knowledge of American history and literature. Took the SAT's three times and madly enjoyed the English section and picked up some tricks along the way so would enjoy SAT English tutoring. I am a recent graduate with a BA in English literature.

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

I have been through the college application process twice; first as a senior in high school and then as a transfer. As an avid writer I can help you craft essays and supplements that reflect your personality and are tailored to the institutions to which you are applying. I can also give you tips to have your applications stand out.


Favourite subject throughout school, I took extra courses in high school because I enjoyed it so much. Then I majored in English literature. I am also English by birth so I have a unique outlook on the language that furthers my love of teaching it.

European History

Born and raised in England, so I studied British and European history until the age of 17. One of my favourite subjects in school, I have since taken college courses in European history to further my knowledge in the subject.

General Computer

I am proficient with Microsoft Office programs such as Excel, Powerpoint and Word, as well as being able to use Photoshop. I am able to use both Macs and computers, and can switch easily between the two.


Received a BA in English Literature at Trinity College. Took both American and British Literature classes, as well as taking multiple English classes at the high school level.

Microsoft Word

I have used Microsoft Word for a number of years now, at the high school and a college level for numerous classes. I also use it for my personal projects such as novel and letter writing. I can teach Microsoft skills on both the PC and the Mac.


Wrote a thesis for my college major as well as working for two groups on campus that reviewed and tutored freshman in their essay writing skills.


I have a BA in English Literature, so I have four years of experience in reading for college classes, inside and outside of my major. I also read for fun in a variety of genres; reading is my passion.

SAT Reading

Took the SAT three separate times at got over 600, actually enjoy taking these tests and learning the tricks to answering the questions.

Study Skills

Having started out on the wrong foot at college with regards to studying and procrastination, I know from experience how not to study, and the tips and tricks I have picked up over my four years of college have really helped me become a better student and become skilled at studying. I have also taken the SAT three times and the GRE twice, so I know how to study for these tests.


Have taken the SAT and GRE as well as receiving a BA in English Literature, all of which have expanded my vocabulary.


Took a number of English classes in college for my major, as well as writing a +30 page thesis to earn my degree. Write literature and reviews in my spare time, really enjoy writing and reading others work.
