Frequently Asked Questions


  1. How many students do you have per class? 

    Prep with Jen’s classes are very small at around 6-10 students. Our philosophy is to give all students the personalized attention they need to reach their own potentials.


  1. Who teaches your classes?

    Jen has over 6 years of experience helping students on the SAT and currently teaches all classes herself. This allows for full control so she can quickly adapt lessons to fit the unique needs of each class.


  1. How are you different from other test prep companies?

    If you've ever met Jen or have read her story, you'd know that she has a true passion for teaching. Last year, she left her stable job at a Big Four to do what she loves full time. Jen teaches her own classes and designs her own curriculum, an amalgamation of the most effective methods she has developed over years of working with different types of learners. 

    Jen spends most of her time and energy dissecting test questions, experimenting with teaching techniques, and analyzing students' responses to her lessons. As a result, her course is constantly evolving. Even as the word spreads about Prep with Jen’s services, we will never compromise quality for more business. 


  1. What results can my student expect after taking lessons with you?

    Prep with Jen doesn’t give score guarantees. You can read our reasons here

    With that said, students will receive quality instruction from someone who has not only taken the exam, but has devoted years to creating streamlined strategies for each section. In the process, they will learn to think like test writers, recognize common traps, and improve their critical reasoning skills. 

    Students who are engaged during class and work diligently to master the strategies we teach often see significant score increases. 


  1. Do you offer private tutoring as well?

    For SAT test prep, Prep with Jen offers private tutoring on a case by case basis. Private tutoring is a good option for students who are looking for targeted help in specific areas (e.g., reading only, grammar, certain math topics, etc.) or are already very strong test takers looking for a final boost in confidence and momentum. 

    We also offer private tutoring for the math SAT 2 subject tests and certain levels of high school math.
