As a homeschooling mom, Jean did not have the financial resources to send her children to college. When she discovered that the SAT and PSAT were the keys to getting huge scholarships, she began to research the tests to understand how to prepare her children for them. She discovered that these tests could be taught—they aren’t IQ tests, but rather critical thinking exams. After both her children received full-ride scholarships (her daughter and son have since earned free grad school and law school, respectively), Jean began teaching these techniques to other homeschool, public, private, and charter school students. Her program, College Prep Genius, is the culmination of more than a decade of research, classroom experience, and SAT expertise.
