Kristen Coe

Philadelphia, PA


  • UCLA
  • UCLA (grad)
  • University of Pennsylvania (Ph.D.)

Kristen came to teaching as an undergraduate when she tutored a friend’s younger brother through the SAT. He aced the test and is now a doctor – true story! Since then, Kristen has shared her knack for standardized tests with students in three states. She has a master’s in social welfare from UCLA and is currently working on her Ph.D. in education policy.

Kristen also earned her B.A. from UCLA, double majoring in English and history in three years and graduating magna cum laude. She spent a couple of years as a director at a non-profit before rocking the GRE and returning to UCLA to earn her M.S.W. Since earning her master’s in 2008, she has engaged in a range of low-paying, but highly-rewarding pursuits ranging from coordinating the implementation of preventative mental health services in Los Angeles to running a school readiness program for children of immigrants in Charleston, SC.

Feeling a little test anxiety? She’ll help you through it. Kristen is also a licensed social worker. She loves helping once-stressed students welcome test day with confidence and calm. Like the true Californian she is, Kristen enjoys yoga, wine, the ocean, and enjoying the sunshine with her new baby girl.
