sat, act, gre prep

Want to learn the best ways to retain and understand difficult information (that will probably cut your study time in half)?

I'll show you not only how to learn a new skill or excel in a particular subject, I'll give you advice for how to stand out as a super star student in school.

I'm Jessica Cox, a graduate of UC Berkeley in both Literature and Creative Writing. As an undergraduate student I ran three internationally reviewed art galleries while scoring straight A's in both undergrad and graduate courses. I have a passion for the sciences and have studied biology, psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience in depth both at UC Berkeley and in community college. While my businesses kept me, well, busy, I had to learn how to perform at a high level in about 20% of the time as other students.

I want to show you how shortcuts can actually help you become a better student (and save you mountains of stress!).

For the past 5 years I've been working with students to develop the best methods for understanding difficult course material without the struggle.

Instead of traditional and outdated modes of teaching, I show my students how to use the skills and resources they already have in order to excel in a tough subject.

I can teach you how to study effectively (so you can retain more while spending less time studying), how to improve your knowledge of tough concepts, how to easily implement top-performing strategies for test prep, how to use past tests to improve test scores, and how to find supplemental materials to make assignments easier.

I specialize in tutoring Language Arts, SAT and ACT prep, GRE prep, and essay writing.

Alongside bringing up your class grade, my goal is to train you to develop highly desirable skills that fuel your passion and that will ensure your future success.

What folks are saying:

Tutoring with Jessica has not only prepared me for the SAT, but it also taught me to apply all those strategies to my other classes. It has significantly improved my performance as a student. — Anna

We had two prior AP English tutors before my daughter starting working with Jessica. She's personable, knowledgeable, helpful, and able to provide great feedback to her that's really helped improve the quality of my daughter's written essays. I would strongly recommend Jessica as a tutor! —Beth
