About Jennifer

Hello and welcome! I am the owner of a College Admissions Test Preparation company that I founded in 1996. Over the past 20 years, I have tutored and taught more than 850 students - both Online and In Person - for the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT exams.

I am a Certified Teacher, with a solid background in education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1978 from the University of Texas, with a B.S. in both Chemistry (42 hours) and English (44 hours), and with 36 hours in Mathematics (including four courses in Doctoral-Level Statistics.) I also received an M.Ed. in Education, a Ph.D. ABD in Education, and a J.D. in Law.

After graduating from the University of Texas with my B.S., I attended Baylor Law School on a scholarship, and graduated in 1981. I then became a licensed Intellectual Property Attorney, and prosecuted patents through the US Patent and Trademark Office. I litigated Intellectual Property Law cases in the State Bar of Texas Courts, US Federal District Courts, and was licensed to practice in front of the US Court of Claims, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

As an attorney, I volunteered in various educational capacities in local and state-wide Continuing Legal Education. While serving as the President of the Dallas-Fort Worth Patent Law Association, I organized more than 60 classes of Intellectual Property Law Legal Education for the State Bar of Texas.

I felt called to teach, so while still an attorney, I taught Legal Research and Writing at the University of Houston Law School, as well as a Professor of Business Law at Houston Community College, and Brookhaven Community College.

I don’t know exactly why, but I have always been fascinated by Test Preparation. Maybe this was because I like to quantitatively measure improvement, and Test Preparation lets me measure my students’ educational improvement. So, in 1995, after having retired from my legal career, I decided to follow my Educator dream full time. And so in 1996, I began my Test Preparation tutoring business, Pathfinders Education, in Plano, Texas.

As the Owner of Pathfinders Education, I taught SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT Test Preparation to individual students, and to small groups of 2 to 3 students. I made sure that my students were not just learning “tips and tricks” for receiving high scores on the exams, but that they were also learning skills in Reading, Writing, and Math, that would benefit them in college. Because I individualized my Test Preparation to each of my students’ needs, I developed strong relationships with my students, and they with me.

After several years of teaching Test Preparation in Texas, my husband and I found ourselves "Empty Nesters," as our daughter had just headed North to attend at MIT. So, my husband and I "packed up," and with our Golden Retriever, Molly, we made our way to the University of Texas in Austin, Texas.

While in Austin, I was awarded a Fellowship to attend the University. I received my Masters in Special Education, with a concentration in English as a Second Language. In my Masters program, I learned many new teaching and tutoring methods, and I put those to good use as I continued to tutor students in Austin.

I then traveled north to the University of Oregon to enter their Education Ph.D. program. True to form, I was fascinated by various forms of Assessment. As a part of my Doctoral Research and tutoring many students in the Eugene-Springfield area, I designed an Assessment Tool that measured various Reading Comprehension skills of my students. I presented my Assessment results at National and Regional Educational Conferences. I received my PhD ABD in Special Education while there. Of course, as I studied in my Doctoral program, I continued tutoring Test Preparation to many students.

After I completed my Doctoral education, I moved to the Vancouver, Washington/Portland, Oregon area, and continued Test Preparation through my company, Pathfinders Education. I added ONLINE Test Preparation to the Test Preparation offerings at Pathfinders Education, and I have never looked back!

I love teaching Online Test Preparation, while I still enjoy and teach some In Person Test Preparation, I am convinced that Online Test Preparation, (if done one on one and individualized for each student, as I do), is an excellent way for many, many students to learn.

I now tutor Online SAT, ACT, GMAT, GRE, AND LSAT Test Preparation to students who live all over the United States -- in states such as Texas, California, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Florida, New York, Massachusetts, and many more.

Let me tell you about the Test results my students have achieved. My Undergraduate Test Preparation students have made remarkable results. Many of my SAT students have improved their scores 350+ points, and some have made perfect 1600s. Some of my SAT students have even been National Merit Finalists, and National Merit Scholars. Many of my ACT students have increased their scores 5 + points, and achieved scores between 32 and 36.

My Undergraduate students have been admitted to Harvard and MIT in the Northeast, Stanford and UCLA on the West Coast, Duke and the University of Texas in the South, and the University of Chicago and Notre Dame in the Midwest.

A high percentage of my Undergraduate students have been awarded 100% “Full Ride” College Scholarships each year. All told, I estimate that my students have been awarded more than $3,500,000 in Scholarships.

My Graduate School GRE, GMAT, and LSAT Test Preparation students have improved remarkably, as well. They have been admitted to top Graduate Schools, Business Schools, and Law Schools, all over the United States. Many of my Graduate School Test Preparation students have received prestigious Scholarships and Fellowships worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I look forward to meeting and working with you!

patient, knowledgeable and extremely helpful

I learned many helpful tips from Jennifer and I could see myself improve after every lesson. She explains it in a brilliant way that helps students understand the lesson faster and also remember it without the student having to memorize it. She is also very patient. The reason I said that is because she was happily willing to spend 30-45 minutes helping me set up my wyzant account (without charge)
