Rachel Jones 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, as an SAT and ACT prep tutor, 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.


Rachel's guidance and support were absolutely crucial to my success with the LSAT. Her expertise in this test helped me build solid intuition on how to approach each question, allowing me to continually build confidence. Her specific, time-tested advice kept me grounded and motivated during the difficult preparation process. I am so grateful to have worked with such a supportive, warm, and expert tutor!
