Education: B.A. Princeton (Economics), M.A. Yale (political science), M.P.A. Harvard (Govt.), J.D. Univ. of Houston (Law).
Experience: For the past 19 years, I have taught AP Economics (AP Microeconomics + AP Macroeconomics), IB Economics, IB and AP US History and AP Government/Politics, sociology and world history. My students successfully have been admitted to competitive colleges.

The Council for Economic Education (NY) videotaped me teaching model lessons for their "Economics in US History" instructional series. I stay updated by regularly attending their workshops, as well as those sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of NY.

I teach the social sciences like a meaningful story with relevance to our lives. The key to understanding concepts is to apply them to real world situations. My students have been successful through simulations such as the E Congress, the Fiscal Ship, and the Stock Market Game. I teach through active, hands on learning.

I customize my teaching strategy to fit the way you learn best. I engage students to express their preferences and frustrations, and I encourage them to ask questions. I patiently guide them to achieve their own success.

patient, effective and knowledgeable

Frieda spent time with my son and really explained the concepts. He said she explained it so well ad he enjoyed working with her. She is responsive, flexible and really cares about the student! She has different ways to teach so that if a student doesn't understand she really can help them understand. My son said she was one of the best tutors he has worked with and scheduled another session with her immediately. Highly recommend her!!
