Jeremy Price
Jeremy has twelve years of experience tutoring and teaching literature and writing, beginning with his senior year at Haverford, when his English professors asked him to tutor in the writing center. His interest in tutoring dates to the year he spent at Oxford, where learning consists largely of writing essays for weekly tutorials. Recent tutees of his have been students at top schools in New York and the surrounding area, including Columbia, Cornell, NYU, U Penn, Horace Mann, Dwight-Englewood, Loomis Chaffee, Trevor, and Stuyvesant. Now he lives in Montreal and offers tutoring there as well.

Emphasizing process and the workmanlike construction of language, his instruction is for many students an essential complement to classroom learning, resulting in clear improvement of their written work and the furthering of their development as autonomous thinkers.

He offers regularly scheduled as well as ad hoc tutoring, either in person or via email and distance conferencing, in accordance with the student's location and needs. He has helped many prospective students with application essays and provides personalized preparation for standardized tests, including the analytical writing and critical reading components of the SAT and GRE, as well as the AP, SAT, and GRE Subject Tests in English Literature and Language.

Testimonials and Recommendations

Supreme. Grades on my school essays and my SAT writing improved. Never did he write the essay himself; he would help me through my thinking process and give me ideas for the essay, but he never did the thinking for me. I feel that his tutoring improved not just my essays but my writing skills and my ability as a writer. In terms of writing, he is the best teacher I had. No joke. — D.K., Senior, Taft, now attending the University of Pennsylvania

I got into Columbia. Thank you so much for all of your help, Jeremy. I could not have done it without you. — E.S., Project Manager, Goldman Sachs, now attending the Columbia University School of Social Work
