Our fundamental belief at Freudigman & Billings is that children learn best in the context of supportive relationships. We are committed to helping students better understand how they learn and how they can take ownership of that learning. Our team provides educational solutions for adolescents and children through individual assessment, personally tailored learning programs, and one-on-one coaching.
Freudigman & Billings uses a unique approach to standardized test preparation that focuses on critical thinking, applied reasoning, and problem solving strategies. We help students understand fundamental principles about how the world of information is organized and how they can interact with that information. This process does not involve the rote memorization of vocabulary or inundation of practice questions that many associate with “test prep.” Instead, we focus on teaching students effective strategies for gathering, sequencing, categorizing, and classifying information from text and visual sources. These processes contribute to a student’s ability to reason, solve problems, make inferences, and draw conclusions.
The Assistant Director of Standardized Test Prep plays a critical role managing the Test Prep program and is dedicated to providing administrative and functional support to the Director of Test Prep. The work is as rewarding as it is challenging as we help students navigate one of the most important steps forward in their education. The ideal candidate not only has a background in coaching for standardized exams and content areas related to standardized testing, but also possesses an inherent curiosity about the process of developing individualized educational plans and a desire to gain mastery of the minute details necessary to implement and monitor the programs across time. Impeccable organizational skills, the ability to think critically, and appropriate professional judgment are necessary qualities to excel in this position.
