ACT

F&B offers tutoring and practice tests for the ACT & SAT. All our tutoring for ACT & SAT prep is one-on-one because we tailor each test prep plan to the student - something that can't be accommplished in a group class!

SAT

After baseline testing for the SAT & ACT, we will advise on the best test for your student, the timeline for testing, and the tutoring plan to best meet your child's goals.

PSAT

For students wanting to preview their PSAT before taking it, we offer both group sessions and one-on-one sessions to prepare for these tests. We also offer practice testing if your student wants to try out the test before they take it!

SSAT & ISEE

F&B offers tutoring and practice tests for the ISEE, SSAT, and Catholic School Entrance Exams; advising on test selection, testing accommodations, financial aid, and school choice; essay revision and editing; interview coaching; and final choice/waitlist consultation.

Summer Test Prep Programs

Are you a rising junior? Kick off your test prep with one of our promotional summer packages. The packages, not offered during the school year, include 10 hrs. of one-on-one tutoring and a practice test. It's a great way to lay the foundation before the school year starts! Most students continue prepping into the school year.

Accommodations Advising

Because of the collaboration between our Test Prep and Educational Support teams, F&B is uniquely positioned to advise in the standardized testing accommodations process for our students.

Single-Subject Tutoring

Build mastery in a single subject. We help reinforce understanding, prepare students for exams, and teach the skills necessary to be successful lifelong learners. See below for a complete list of subjects we teach.

Multi-Subject Tutoring

Our tutors often have skills in related (or even unrelated!) domains, so they can help students with more than one subject. Math *and* Physics? Spanish and APES? We got you.

Booster Sessions

Looking to get a head start on the school year? Trying to make the jump from A-level to Honors? Do intensive pre-work over the summer so you can hit the ground running.

Group Reviews

Nearly 100% of our sessions are one-on-one, but we do offer group review sessions for all of the AP exams in the spring. See our seasonal offerings for exact dates.

Educational Enrichment

Are you passionate about learning but not being challenged in school? Our enrichment services are for you! Let us tailor a custom program to fit your specific goals and needs.

Educational 

Support

Our educators apply specialized training in learning differences and disabilities to address more systemic issues affecting an individual student’s academic performance.

Academic Skill-Building

In addition to providing traditional instruction, we create personalized instruction, support, and remediation across all of their academic courses. Students will learn organizational strategies for managing their workload, study strategies for different types of testing situations, critical writing skills for papers, note taking strategies and interpersonal skills for managing relationships with teachers.

Executive Functioning Coaching

Transitions between grades can be difficult and students are often caught off-guard by the level and amount of work they are expected to do. Executive functioning is a major predictor of their future academic success. In these weekly sessions, we cover the skills necessary for achieving optimal grades and ensuring academic success. Students will receive one-on-one coaching to develop executive functioning skills based on that student’s learning style, goals, and needs.

Writing Skills

Writing is a primary way for humans to communicate with one another, and it is among the most important lifelong skills. We teach students that writing is a process. Once you master the process, you can apply it repeatedly, whenever and to whatever you write. Our Writing Skills tutoring teaches individualized approaches to idea generation, organization and outline, rough drafting, discussion and revision, and editing.

Reading Remediation

We work with students who have language-based learning differences which can affect reading. Our programs develop literacy and language skills by working on phonemic awareness, vocabulary through sight words, and handwriting. Our reading specialists are trained in the Wilson Reading System, Lindamood-Bell Programs, and the Orton-Gillingham Approach.

Therapeutic Coaching

At F&B we work with students who are struggling with motivation in middle, high school, and college. We have extensive experience with this type of therapeutic academic coaching having worked with individual students and groups on: managing stress and anxiety, guiding academic, athletic and personal goals, improving social skills and fostering peer relations. This service helps not only with executive functioning but also with psychological motivational barriers in a safe, comfortable environment.
- Managing stress and anxiety 
- Building motivation
- Improving organizational and executive functioning skills
- Guiding academic, athletic and personal goals
- Improving social skills
- Fostering peer relations

Educational Therapy

While a regular subject tutor focuses on teaching specific academic subject matter, educational therapists apply specialized training in learning differences to address more systemic issues affecting an individual student’s academic performance. We utilize clinical practitioners' research to create and employ empirically based interventions to ensure the most effective treatment plan for each student. We work as a team, collaborating to solve problems, craft customized interventions, and reach the most effective outcomes for all students. We also stay in regular communication with clinicians and counselors to keep all parties informed regarding a student's development.

Services We Offer

College

Advising

Our process is designed to help each student find and get into the school that is the best fit for the individual.

For Our Community

This is your Product section. It's a great opportunity to showcase your collection or offering.

Course Selection & Planning

The courses that you take in high school will play a big part in helping to identify colleges that will be good fits. Starting in middle school and ongoing throughout high school, we meet with your student to create and maintain an academic plan that balances the nuances of a complex admissions landscape, the student’s academic and personal interests, and being appropriately challenged along the way.

College Essays

Your middle and high school years are a storyboard of experiences. The essay writing process, from the Common App main essay right down to even the most seemingly inconsequential supplemental essay, distills those experiences down, turning them into lenses that provide insight into the most authentic elements of who you are. As part of our essay process, you’ll work one-on-one with an assigned writing instructor who, under the supervision of Kim and Alex, helps you to identify and tell your story.

Interview Prep

Especially with the nearly universal shift to a test-optional admissions model, application numbers are growing at unprecedented rates. Thus, interviews have become an even more essential tool in helping applicants stand out in applicant pools. Our interview prep team, comprised of Alex, Trey, and Nichole, provides individualized training tailored to create symmetry between the student and the specific school at which they are preparing to interview.

Extracurricular Planning

A big part of the college process is how you spend your time when you aren’t writing that English paper or finishing a physics problem set. While it may be as a result of these things that many students discover passions, the time away from them is where students have the experiences that will distinguish them in college applicant pools. As part of our college planning process, we help students figure out what extracurricular activities during the school year as well as during breaks will align with their interests and enhance their profiles.

Building a List

Through careful research and close consultation with Kim and Alex, students will spend their sophomore and junior years building a list of schools that represent an optimal intersection of fit and selectivity.

Applications

There’s a strategy to how you fill out the applications themselves – the best activities to list (and the order to put them in), whether it will be to your advantage (or against it) to fill out an optional essay question, or if you should indicate that you plan to submit test scores or not. These are just a few of the myriad nuanced situations that can arise. We are here to strategize around all of them and help you not only with filling out and submitting your application but also to provide guidance on tracking your application once it’s in.
