Rachel has over fifteen years of experience as an instructor and tutor at the high school, college, and graduate level. In addition to her tutoring, she also helps to create and develop the PrepMatters curriculum: she has authored practice tests, instructional manuals, workbooks, calculator programs, and more. A Chevy Chase native, Rachel graduated from B-CC High School before going on to earn a BA in philosophy and political science from Boston University and a JD from Columbia University. In her free time, she can generally be found solving puzzles, wandering around the internet, and spending time with her husband and son.


Every student is different, so the best route to improving a test score is naturally different for everyone. It’s my job, and great privilege, to get to know each student as an individual and find the learning style that works best for him or her. As one of those rare nerds who finds standardized testing fun, I am delighted to spread the love by helping to illuminate the tricks that can raise a student’s score, in whatever shape those tricks might take.
