My areas of expertise include English (elementary and secondary), college writing, SAT preparation, resume and cover letter building, as well as Reading, Study Skills and Speech. What makes me unique is that I can truly and cheerfully work with all students and find a way to teach them that incorporates how they learn most naturally while still building upon what challenges them. I am patient, nurturing and can reach the most reticent/difficult students. I look forward to working with your child!

Knowledgeable GRE Tutor

Jen has greatly helped me in just a few sessions improve my GRE Verbal score. She has taught me effective strategies to help me understand reading passages more easily. She has also helped me better understand how to approach vocabulary questions, even if the words are unfamiliar. Jen is very understanding and patient and truly wants the best from her students. Highly recommend!

Great Praxis Tutor

Jennifer was a great tutor, she helped me out for my writing section of the Praxis. She built my confidence up, along with gaining a stronger understanding for that section. She did a great job and is worth using as a tutor!

AMAZING Tutor!

Jennifer is an expert in GRE verbal sections and I am so happy I contacted her! I had to cram for my GRE, and in only 3 sessions, my score improved TREMENDOUSLY! She offers the best tips, tricks, and strategies. I honestly don't think I could have found a better tutor than Jennifer - she was so engaging, passionate, and gave me a whole run-down of the GRE. She genuinely cared about me as a student and offered the best study advice I have ever received. I applied all her tips and tricks on the GRE verbal section and that's why my score went up so significantly. I would recommend her to anyone studying for the GREs!

Jacqueline, 4 lessons with Jennifer

Awesome!

Helped a lot in polishing my personal statement. The statement was still my writing and ideas but helped me make it sound a lot better and polish it off.

Juhee, 2 lessons with Jennifer

Jennifer responded quickly and we are pleased with her suggestions for test taking strategies.

Pointed out how to look at questions and choose correct answers. Scheduled sessions and met our tutoring needs quickly. Very pleased with her approach to instruction. My daughter liked her. Very nice person.

Great GRE Verbal Tutor!

Jennifer really helped me out two weeks before I had to take the GRE. She taught me efficient methods that would help me identify vocabulary roots and meanings. In addition, she taught me how to look for context clues and dissect the sentences. My Verbal score increased significantly because of her tutoring!

Anup, 3 lessons with Jennifer

She is great with both of my kids (ages 7 and 8). She is engaged and really knows her stuff!

She is pushing my kids without them feeling pushed. She knows how to nurture them and they really like working with her. Amazing!

Ben, 3 lessons with Jennifer

Great tutor

Jennifer tutored my daughter for SAT reading and writing section. My daughter will not take SAT till fall of this year, so it's too soon to tell about score improvement, but my daughter likes her approach and feels that she is making progress, especially in the reading comprehension section. Jennifer is patient, gives a very thorough review of the session at the end of it and is super flexible with scheduling of sessions. We plan to use her again.
