Jenna B.
+ Years of Tutoring Experience

Jenna is a Premium Tutor, the D.C. area Tutor Manager, and the IEC Account Manager for DC, Maryland, and Virginia. She's worked with over 175 Applerouth students since joining the team in 2012 and is the most-requested tutor in the D.C. area.

Jenna spent five years in London, honing her acting skills at LAMDA, before returning to D.C. When it comes to tutoring, Jenna's style is encouraging and reassuring. "Don't let the test get inside your head," she says. "And remember - it's always simpler than you think."

When she's not tutoring, you can find Jenna rooting for the Nats, reading, and playing with dogs.
What Parents are Saying
"Jenna is the best! She really understood my son's needs and tailored her work to what he needed. She was patient and understanding. And, of course, my son's SAT scores improved. Working with Jenna was an all around great experience."
Chelsea B.
+ Years of Tutoring Experience

Chelsea is both a Premium Tutor and the Seattle area Tutor Manager, and she has worked with over 200 Applerouth students since joining the team. She is in the top 10% of Most Requested Tutors and has helped multiple students earn perfect section scores on both the SAT and ACT. A Florida native, Chelsea participated in the International Baccalaureate program in high school. She then went on to earn both a Bachelor's in Biological Science and a Master's in Biology and Science Education, both from Florida State University. During her time at FSU, she worked in a laboratory and taught college-level science classes to undergraduates. She has experience teaching a wide range of students, both individually and in groups. Chelsea takes a student-led approach to tutoring, saying, "I do not give direct answers to students; instead, I prefer to ask questions that help the student work out a problem-solving process that they can apply in the future."

When she's not tutoring, Chelsea enjoys rock-climbing, cooking and playing bass guitar.
What Parents are Saying
"Chelsea is an amazing tutor: intelligent, reliable, and can relate the material in a way that her student understands."
Jeff F.
+ Years of Tutoring Experience

Jeff is a Premium Tutor who has worked with over 350 students since joining the Applerouth team in 2012. A professional with degrees in both political science and teaching, Jeff has worked with multiple students who have gone on to achieve perfect section scores on their college admissions tests. He also assists our creative team by editing content for our books. Jeff believes that effective practice requires students to have a goal in mind: "To use a baseball analogy, smart ballplayers don't try to hit home runs in batting practice. Rather, they simulate game situations and ask themselves, "Given this situation, how would I react?" Similarly, whenever you do your homework or take a mock test, you should always practice with a purpose in mind."

When he's not tutoring, you can find Jeff hiking, traveling, or volunteering.
What Parents are Saying
"Jeff has been a wonderful communicator with us as parents! My daughter has mentioned several times how helpful and clear Jeff is in their sessions. I appreciate his session feedback and look forward to seeing the results of this partnership!"

When Tom isn't tutoring, you can find him fishing, driving his trademark red Camaro, and - most importantly - spending time with his family.
What Parents are Saying
"Tom is an amazing tutor; he does a great job of preparing his students and really connects with them. Fabulous!"
Sarah F.
+ Years of Tutoring Experience

Sarah is a Premium Tutor who has tutored over 140 students since joining the team in 2013. Sarah earned a degree in Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College before moving on to do graduate work in Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science at Georgia Tech. Once she started PhD work, however, she realized that her true love was teaching, rather than research. She tutors SAT/ACT, math of all levels, as well as chemistry, physics and other sciences. Sarah's broad base of knowledge, combined with her dedication to her students, has cemented her place in our top 10% of Most Requested Tutors. Her dedication pays off: several of her students have achieved perfect section or composite scores in their SATs and ACTs. In addition to tutoring, Sarah serves as our Math Specialist, creating content for our books and online practice; she is the Applerouth authority on the SAT and ACT's math problems! Sarah's tutoring philosophy focuses on breaking difficult problems into steps: "It is good to keep the big picture in mind, but the best approach to most any problem is to take things one step at a time.

The small steps can be completely manageable even when the big picture seems overwhelming." When Sarah isn't tutoring, she knits, bakes, and sings in a choir.
What Parents are Saying
"My daughter likes Sarah's style and the way she helps her break things into pieces. She feels that Sarah is already helping her better understand the concepts."

High Schoolers Learn to Navigate College-Level Challenges


Many high school students have challenges that follow them into college, but it is possible to break the cycle. One Applerouth student, Jasmine, was struggling with high school AP Calculus and AP Physics when she and her parents came to us for help. With the guidance of an expert mathematics tutor, Jasmine realized her abilities to excel in calc and physics – she just needed someone to cut out the confusion, and take the time to clarify things enough so she could ride that boost of confidence. When Jasmine later transitioned to college, she happily reported to her tutor that she was able to smoothly and successfully complete college-level statistics.

Another student, Jay, sought our help as he was graduating from high school. He had been feeling overwhelmed by the transition to college-level classes, which is a feeling many students share. We know it often only takes a few habit adjustments to clear their way for success…so we got to work, and so did Jay. Applerouth matched him with one of our tutors that we knew would be great at providing academic and strategic support, while helping Jay to establish a stronger foundation of executive functioning skills. Jay made huge strides and learned to settle into his new expectations in a college environment. He had a successful freshman year of college, but more importantly, he has walked away with stronger study skills that he can use throughout his academic career.


  • When Jay and Jasmine’s parents found us, they were feeling apprehensive about their students’ struggles with subjects they knew would only become more challenging in college. First, their tutors addressed the challenges they were experiencing in their high school AP classes. After working from that level, they began to start focusing with them on what to expect – and the habits that are most helpful – in the college environment.
  • Once Jay and Jasmine began college, their Applerouth tutors continued to assist them in navigating their classes in order to make sure they never fell behind. This is important because the sooner you bring light to confusion, the quicker and easier it is to untangle!
  • They continued to focus on sharpening their executive functioning in order to adjust to the new pace that university classes demand. In the process, they gained better learning skills they can use time and time again.


Both Jasmine and Jay successfully overcame their academic challenges, preparing for and keeping pace with college classes. They gained resilience and effective learning strategies they could use in both high school and college, as well as in their overall lives.
