About

97 English Adv, 49 English Ext | 99+ ATAR | USYD Comm/Law | 3+ years experience | English Specialist | HSC All-Rounder | UBS Cadet

I graduated from Barker College on an academic scholarship in 2020. I have extensive knowledge of Y7 - Y12 subjects (as listed), scholarship testing by ACER and AAS, and the NSW Selective School Exam, as I was admitted to North Sydney Girls and Hornsby Girls.

Further, I have received an early offer to study law at the LSE (London School of Economics), which is ranked in the top 10 law schools in the world. I also have experience with the SAT and ACT (99th percentile scores in both) which is required for admission to US universities. I can also offer guidance for the UNSW LAT (Law Admission Test), as I received a perfect score of 100/100.

Outside of examinations, I was also offered the UBS Cadetship, so I would be happy to share advice regarding similar programs.

Overall, I am a friendly, patient and experienced tutor who offers personalised, effective teaching. I provide engaging lessons and valuable feedback so that you can reach your full potential!

I also proofread/mark essays for $20 each (1000 words and under) with comprehensive feedback/suggestions. $25 for longer essays, $40 for major works.

The breadth of Jen’s knowledge is a testament to her rigorous knowledge of a broad range of subjects. It doesn’t feel like you are being taught by another student, but a qualified teacher who has researched the content beyond just the scope of the course syllabus. Her help has been instrumental to my academic success in preparation for the HSC. I couldn’t recommend her enough!

After many unsuccessful tutors, a friend suggested I approached Jen. She was friendly and her services were both fun and educational - increasing my academic achievement. After a year of tutoring I feel confident in going into year 10 next year ahead of my grade. Thank you Jen!!!
