About Jennifer

Hello and welcome! I am the owner of a College Admissions and Test Preparation company that I founded in 1997. 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.


MY EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

I am a Harvard-trained College Admissions Counselor, and a Certified Teacher. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Texas, with a B.S. in Chemistry (42 hours), English (44 hours), and Mathematics (36 hours, including 12hours in Doctoral-Level Statistics.)

I also have an M.Ed. in Reading Education from the University of Texas, a PhD ABD in Special Education from the University of Oregon, and a J.D. in Law from Baylor University.


SUBJECTS I TUTOR

I tutor the SAT and ACT College Entrance exams, both In- Person and Online.

I tutor the GRE, GMAT, and LSAT exams, both In-Person and Online.

I tutor Algebra, Pre Calculus, Statistics, and Probability, as preparation for College Admissions Testing.

I consult with parents on College Admissions strategies, and I help prepare College Admissions Materials.


MY RESULTS

Many of my SAT students have improved more than 400 points, and some have made perfect 1600s. My SAT students have 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 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 students are awarded 100% “Full Ride” College Tuition Scholarships each year. All told, I estimate that my students have been awarded more than $ 3,500,000 in Scholarships.

My GRE, GMAT, and LSAT students have been admitted to top Graduate Schools, Business Schools, and Law Schools, all over the nation. Many of these students have received prestigious Scholarships and Fellowships.

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.

Algebra 1

I am a Certified teacher, with a B.S. in Chemistry, and 36 hours of Mathematics. I have tutored more than 600 students in Algebra over the past 20 years. I begin teaching Algebra I to my students by reviewing Pre Algebra concepts such as manipulation of several variables, graphing in all four quadrants, using formulas for lines and slopes, solving problems by using the quadratic formula, calculating cubic volumes of geometrical figures, and more.

Algebra 2

I am a Certified teacher, with a B.S. in Chemistry, and 36 hours of Mathematics. I have tutored more than 250 students in Algebra II over the past 20 years. I begin teaching Algebra II to my students by first reviewing Algebra I concepts, to make sure each of my students has a firm foundation in Algebra I. If he or she does not have a good grasp in the Math of Algebra I, I will review the appropriate Algebra I concepts to help them prepare for our Algebra II tutoring. I tutor Algebra II by teaching the concepts of linear equations, graphs, polynomials, radical expressions, functions, exponential and logarithmic expressions, probability, and some trigonometry.

College Counseling

I have been trained at Harvard University in College Admissions Counseling. I have 11 years of experience helping students and parents prepare for, and complete, the admissions requirements for a number of different colleges and universities. I help them from the beginning of the search for several ideal colleges to which to apply, to ensuring that the student's college essay is appropriate, well-written and unique. I help students decide which advanced tests to take, such as AP Exams or SAT II tests, and I help them prepare for those tests, as well. Finally, I look at their "extracurriculars" to make sure we are using them in the best way to highlight the uniqueness of the student.

GMAT

As the owner of a test prep service, I have 20 + years Test Preparation experience tutoring the GMAT exam, GRE, LSAT, SAT, Reading, SAT Math, and ACT exams, to more than 850 students. I am a licensed, Certified teacher, and am Harvard-trained in all areas of College Admissions Counseling. My students have been admitted to top schools such as Harvard, MIT, and Stanford, and have received many Scholarships and Fellowships, including free tuition and living stipends.

GRE

As the owner of a test prep service, I have 20 + years Test Preparation experience tutoring the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, SAT, Reading, SAT Math, and ACT exams, to more than 850 students. I am a licensed, Certified teacher, and am Harvard-trained in all areas of College Admissions Counseling. My students have been admitted to top schools such as Harvard, MIT, and Stanford, and have received many Scholarships and Fellowships, including free tuition and living stipends.

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.S. in Chemistry from The University of Texas. My coursework consisted of 42 hours in Chemistry, and of this, eight hours (two classes, plus labs) were in Organic Chemistry. I made the highest grade in Organic Chemistry I, and the second highest grade in Organic Chemistry II.

In that same degree program, I took 24 more hours in other sciences: physics, biology, meteorology and environmental science, bringing my Total Hours of science to 66 hours.

Additionally, I took 18 hours in mathematics, which included Advanced Algebra, Analytic Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus I, and Calculus II.

Finally, I took coursework in "teaching science and math," and became a Certified Chemistry teacher.

Praxis

I am a Certified teacher. I also have an educational background of degrees and coursework that match the subject matter of the PRAXIS exam: a B.S. in Chemistry and English, with 36 hours in Math, including Statistics, a Masters in Education, a Ph.D. ABD in Reading Education, and a J.D. in Law. I have taught and tutored the Verbal, Writing, Reading, and Math sections in Standardized Tests over the past 20 years. I have taught all of the subject matter of the PRAXIS to my students.

Prealgebra

I am a Certified teacher, with a B.S. in Chemistry, and 36 hours of Mathematics. I have tutored more than 600 students in Pre Algebra, and Algebra over the past 20 years. I begin teaching Pre Algebra to my students by reviewing percent, fractions, and decimals. If my students still need to learn those concepts, I teach them, and then we progress to learning concepts and solutions for Pre Algebra word problems, and working with variables, such as X and Y. We also learn formulas for lines and slopes.

PSAT

I have tutored for the PSAT for several years. Of course, you probably know that it is the test that determines the National Merit Scholars, which translates to greater chances of admission to a very selective college or university and/or a great deal of scholarship money.

Other students are taking the PSAT to practice and gain familiarity with the SAT, which they usually will have to take in the upcoming year in order to submit their highest scores to the college of their choice.

When I tutor for the PSAT (and the SAT and ACT, as well), I help students see why they missed a certain problem. Then I teach the concept again and the student works a couple more very similar problems. I am available to actually teach the student the subject matter, such as the math/reading/vocabulary/writing.

I am proud to say that each one of my PSAT, SAT and ACT students improved. My SAT students increased their scores by an average of 150 points.

I have letters of thanks and praise from both parents and students. I am glad to share those with you.

SAT Math

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)
