I really enjoyed my lesson with Dr. Jefferson today! She gave me valuable information to help me get started and apply for upcoming lessons. I selected my monologue 🤩 and I'm ABSOLUTELY excited for our next session!
Linda
It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

I have a Master's degree in Applied Linguistics with a minor in Psychology. I graduated summa cum laude. I also have special teaching licenses in TEFL and TESOL. I have been tutoring for 15+ years all grade levels and subjects, Mathematics, Sciences, Social Studies, and Language Arts. In my experience, no two students are alike, and I'm able to identify unique needs, to help each student progress. Students find me patient, kind and fun to work with. Regarding ESL tutoring, I have a deep understanding of the science and research behind the way English as a second language is learned. I also train teachers on state-adopted ESL materials, so I have access to great resources. I love technology and enjoy using it as a tool for my work. I'm flexible and can adapt to the way each individual student learns best.

My greatest passion in life is teaching. I have experienced great success in my academics, due to amazing and unforgettable teachers. This is the foundation of my commitment ...

Spectacular and Recommended Tutor!
Jennifer tutored my daughter for the ACT. The results were nothing short of spectacular. Jennifer is incredibly smart, has a lovely disposition with parents and students, is prompt and communicative, and most importantly, clearly knows what she is doing. She is strategic in every aspect of her tutoring for the ACT, which is exactly what we needed and what hooked my daughter into the plan. She never complained about the tutoring sessions -- she saw the value immediately. Result: 7 point composite increase with 6-8 point improvement in every test area! To give you context to determine how your own student might fare, my daughter is highly intelligent, takes every AP class she can, and is very "coachable," so she started the tutoring with a lot of potential. However, she was not into studying for the test at all (SAT, same thing) and generally performs below her ability on standardized tests due to text anxiety. When push came to shove, she saw that her scores were below what she needed for her first choice college. With only three weeks to study before her last chance to improve her scores, she began to work with Jennifer. Jennifer tutored my daughter for a total of about 18 hours and gave her practice assignments. She zeroed in strategically on the types of questions that were the most problematic for her and explained, for example, that if she had just known a certain skill, she would have gotten 8 questions correct and thereby improved her score by 3 points (numbers estimated from memory). That approach drew my daughter in right away and it worked! I highly recommend Jennifer. She was worth every minute and every penny.
Steven
EXCEPTIONAL tutor!! Patient! Thorough! Highly Knowledgeable!
Jennifer consistently shows up for our daughter's online sessions with a bright, warm smile that immediately puts our daughter's nerves at ease. Jennifer patiently and skillfully untangled the complicated problems that had befuddled our daughter, and replaced her insecurity with clarity and confidence! Jennifer tamed the big "Math monster", replacing it with a manageable "math puppy"! Over the last 6 months, Jennifer was able to explain and demystify difficult math concepts, increasing our daughter's confidence and competence with every session! Before beginning sessions with Jennifer, our daughter had set the bar low, wishing only to "pass" her math classes with an acceptable grade, in order to complete her college career. However, by week eight of tutoring, with soaring confidence and new-found math proficiency, our daughter not only passed her final summer math class, but earned an "A" , finishing at the TOP of her class! This would not have been possible without the extraordinary skillfulness, expert teaching abilities and patience that Jennifer brings in her masterful "tool chest." She speaks the "language of math" in a way that crystallizes its concepts for her students! She is an extraordinary teacher and an absolute gift to her students!!
Stephanie
Highly Recommended!!!!!!!
Jennifer has been tutoring our daughter for over 2 years in ESL. Our daughter loves Jennifer, she is very knowledgeable, straight to the point, very clear with her explanations, and helps her a lot with grasping some concepts that are unclear for her. Jennifer is always willing to accommodate my schedule and willing to make extra time for my daughter when she needed it. She’s very patient and truly wants her students to succeed! My only regret is that we had not found Jennifer earlier!

About Meagan

Hello, my name is Meagan D., and I have been living in the DC area for about 5 years. I attended Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI. I have my Bachelor's of Science Degree, a Michigan's Provisional Teacher's Certificate, and a Maryland Teacher's Certificate. My major was Mathematics

The teacher is very nice to the student, helps the student in different ways, and explains problem so the student understands their mistake.
Charley
Meagan is very flexible and is a great teacher. She doesn't make the student feel self-conscious about answering wrong, She gently asks the student to explain how they came up with the answer and allows them to correct themselves. If the student doesn't realize their error during the explanation, she explains to the student wherein the equation they made an error. She also repeats the problem areas with the student until they have a full understanding of the process.

I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment.

She's great!
