The History of Kweller Prep

Starting out as a private tutor, with a mother who had been a NYC school teacher for over twenty years, Frances Kweller naturally took to teaching and guiding young students. With her mother’s exposure to the failures of the school system and her students’ continuous criticism of the lack of effective college guidance, Ms. Kweller quickly realized that there was a conspicuous gap in the education system that needed to be addressed. Therefore, she chose to pursue education and law with full force, graduating from NYU Steinhardt's School of Education and Hofstra Law School. Shortly after passing the New York state bar, Ms. Kweller opened "Kweller Prep," a one-stop shop to prepare students, as young as 10 years old, for the challenges of high school entrance exam test taking and college courses.

Five years later, Kweller Prep employs over 30 tutors, runs an SAT summer camp, which sells out every year, and operates in two locations, Queens and Manhattan. Ms. Kweller’s organization not only provides tutoring and guidance to the students, but also offers parent workshops on the college process, and tours of Harvard, Princeton, Yale and even specialized high schools. Please consider Kweller Prep as your next feature. As someone who was disappointed with how the school system was operating, Ms. Kweller not only spoke out, but also took action, filling an urgent and unfortunate education gap with emphatic and invaluable dedication.
