Krissi Taylor Schumacher’s journey at The Princeton Review started in San Antonio, Texas, when she began teaching SAT directly after graduating from St. Mary’s University with an English degree in 2008. She was immediately blown away by how much fun it is to work with our students and by how rewarding helping students to reach their collegiate goals is. After teaching SAT for a summer, she knew she’d found her calling, and she began training to teach for other test types starting with MCAT Verbal (which is now called MCAT CARS) in the fall of 2008 and then adding GRE, ACT, LSAT, and GMAT over the course of her first 15 months working with The Princeton Review. Over the years, she’s become a master trainer (our term for someone who trains our teachers) for the SAT, ACT, and LSAT, as well as for Early Edge, a program taught in schools across the country to help prepare students for the SAT and ACT. In early 2019, she reached the highest echelon of teachers and trainers for The Princeton Review when she was promoted to High School Uber Trainer, a role in which she trains Princeton Review master trainers and develops training programs and course content. You’ll find her name on the acknowledgement pages of a number of The Princeton Review’s SAT, ACT, and LSAT teaching manuals and Random House titles to thank her for her contributions.

Outside of her role as a teacher and trainer, she’s also had the pleasure of working in several offices, from San Antonio, Texas, to Boulder, Colorado, and Berkeley, California, in roles ranging from tutoring manager in Texas, executive director of the Colorado area, and director of tutoring and teacher development in northern California to National Instructor Training Manager, so you could say she knows a thing or two about The Princeton Review and the tests we help students prepare for. In May of 2018, she left her office role to focus on teaching, tutoring, and training, as well as her expanding family. When she’s not working, she enjoys reading and watching films, hiking, attending festivals (she attends the Colorado Renaissance festival yearly, and has attended the Telluride Film Festival four times over the last seven years), and her guilty pleasure is the occasional reality television show on Bravo. Married since September of 2017, she and her husband welcomed their first child in March of 2019. He joined his two “siblings,” a German shepherd/coon hound mix named Cookie Monster and a border collie/pointer mix named Jules
