About Freddie

My top belief about teaching and learning is that everyone can learn and everyone can grow. As your teacher, I am here to help you to become your best self. Everyone learns differently. There are multiple paths to understanding and we'll work to figure out which approach works best for you. I deeply enjoy teaching and helping others make significant breakthroughs in their learning.

I specialize in teaching English (reading and writing), history, and math both for school and for standardized tests, especially AP exams in history. I can travel to your home or a nearby quiet space for our lessons. I also do online lessons. Feedback will be a two-way street for us - I will provide you with detailed and useful feedback and I will ask you, from time to time, for the very same thing. The most effective learning is student-centered, meaning that instruction is set up not as a one-way lecture but as a dynamic experience for you to study, practice and engage with the material that will ensure that you retain what you learn and can apply it in the future. I want to help you think about your own learning and tailor instruction to your needs.

The last belief about learning that I'll share with you is that it is a lifelong process. I look forward to guiding you along on part of that journey!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

For the past two years, I have advised students on their college essay writing and general application strategies (setting deadlines, applying for financial aid, managing interviews, researching schools and finding the right match), generally from the summer until December. I generally focus students' attention deeply on the process of essay writing, and I try to encourage and motivate students to write expressively about meaningful experiences, ideas, and values. Some recent students have gone on to schools such as University of Delaware, Carnegie Mellon, NYU, and UPenn.

Since this past August, I have continued to do this same sort of work except at a private academy known for chiefly for its SAT preparation program. In 2013, I advised four students who are applying to top tier schools in the Philadelphia area such as Bryn Mawr, Haverford, UPenn, and Swarthmore. In 2014 and beyond, I have consulted with students applying to Duke, Haverford, and Harvard, University of Chicago, and Fordham.

Praxis

I have passed the Social Studies (Recognition of Excellence) and English Praxis II exams and I am certified to teach both subjects for grades 7-12.

Social Studies

I graduated from Princeton University in 2006 with an A.B. in History (High Honors, Departmental GPA 3.85). I have an M.A. in History from the University of Pennsylvania (2012), with a focus on American history . I am currently enrolled in a teacher preparation program at Princeton University for high school teaching in social studies. I plan to be certified in New Jersey and Pennsylvania by the spring of next year.

Great tutor — Freddie was a great tutor who works with great vigor. He truly wants the student to unlock a potential within and always has the students best interest. With SAT, he always answered questions and really put a lot of effort in parts the student has trouble with. He writes detailed notes of what the student and he had done in the last session so that both the parents and students can remember what t ...
