About Fred

I worked for 24 years with the New England Regional Office of the College Board and in my semi-retirement have several years of private SAT tutoring experience. My approach is to build on areas a student feels confident about and develop the ones s/he is having difficulty with. There are no gimmicks or tricks, just one-on-one discussion and coming to know the SAT based on many years of working with students and teachers in classrooms and instructional development. This is work I enjoy - I always involve students and their families in developing a custom program for each student.

I have worked with a wide range of students; from high achieving kids trying to gain admissions to very competitive colleges, as well as students who have difficulty showing their abilities on standardized tests. I have a special interest in working with potential collegiate athletes who are interested in improving their SAT scores to meet NCAA or other standards for admission.

Before I started tutoring I was the head of Academic Services at the College Board in New England and also was the Academic Dean and teacher at a high school in Vermont. I have also taught English and Mathematics courses at the college level. I call on my academic work in educational psychology and learning theory (PhD degree) to help understand the needs of every student I work with.
