Hi! I'm Janae Young

Founder of Jan(A+)e Tutoring


Here's my story.

I've always loved teaching since I was a little girl. Growing up, I was constantly buzzing around the teacher's classroom trying to figure out how I could help explain problems to my classmates. As I progressed throughout high school, I noticed that I was able to explain concepts to my peers in a clear, understandable way because as someone in their position I knew EXACTLY how to help them. This is the power of peer education. At 15, after becoming a go-to tutor and academically coaching high school students in my community, I utilized the power of peer education to create a tutoring program specifically for high school students - Jana(A+)e Tutoring.


When I began the college application process, I realized that the industry lacked coaches who could ACTUALLY understand students.

The summer before I applied to Stanford I knew that I needed to raise my score if I wanted to have any chance of getting accepted. After taking the PSAT, PACT, SAT, and ACT several times, I tried studying with Khan Academy and lengthy test-prep books - but still couldn't achieve my goal score. Between juggling AP classes and other extracurriculars, I knew that I needed a quick solution that wouldn't waste my time.

Even more importantly, I knew that if I figured it out, I could help other students do the same. So I did. Using the process I teach, in 4 months, I reached my goal score in the 99th percentile, created a phenomenal application that authentically represented ME, and was accepted into Stanford early (even with a 4% acceptance rate). After being accepted into several more top schools, I was able to win thousands of dollars in scholarships. 

Using the right process, my life changed forever.

After transforming my own life, I committed to doing the same for other students. I've been in your exact position, so I know exactly how to help you.

I know first-hand how challenging this process can be for students. Trust me, I've BEEN there. Now as a college coach and SAT/ACT expert, I have helped students around the world achieve their goal scores and reach their top schools. In order to stand out in a competitive applicant pool, you need the right strategy and support from someone who has gone through this process themselves.

After 1,000+ hours of coaching and teaching, I know that helping students reach their dream schools is my calling. This work is transformational.

If you're ready to learn how to get accepted into AND succeed at your top school, I'm your coach.

The moment I was accepted into Stanford changed my life forever. This opportunity is available to you as well. Let's create it together.

"We related on a deeper level because..."

“I had the pleasure of working with Janae through my ACT preparation and college preparation with essay-editing. I had a great time connecting with Janae academically and personally as she guided me to improve my grammar and writing as a whole. We related on a deeper level because she used her past experiences and similar situations to not only improve my writing to be more fluent and better evaluated but also complex for college admissions.”
