“To one of the greatest teachers I know, Mr. Freedman, thank you for teaching me so much more than English. You taught me about life and the way it works. I am inspired by you to succeed, no matter what."
— Daniel LaBellarte, Rahway High School
“Thank you for inspiring me to succeed on the verbal sections of the PSAT and SAT. You tell, more than explain, more than demonstrate."
— Marc Williams, John Paul Stevens High School
“When hiring you to tutor me in both the reading and writing sections of the SAT, I took a chance, got lost, and found my way back. In achieving success, I am now stronger and more aware of my capabilities."
— Randi Leeds, John Paul Stevens High School
"Some four years ago, I first stumbled on to my chair, biting my fifth grade nails timidly at the first tutoring session with Mr. Freedman. I was simply a nervous wreck. In fact, I had only the mere confidence of a bewildered kitten. I had actually received a poor mark on an assessment and, at that time, had practically squandered all of my pride. However, since that moment in time, Mr. Freedman has not only taught me the fundamentals of literature and the English language, but he has provided more time and effort for which any other student or parent can ask. Always making sure that I have the essentials of grammar and proper writing techniques, Mr. Freedman ensures that I have in place both the proper basics of literature and English before conducting any analysis of a text or material. Mr. Freedman adjusts to my abilities, moving at my pace without urgency. He has also been a great boost for my confidence, holding firm to the belief that anyone can learn anything if one sets his or her mind to it. Mr. Freedman has not only been a phenomenal teacher and instructor, but he provides life's lessons and discussions that many others do not either have the time or the effort to spare."

"My husband and I have known Mr. Freedman for five years now, and we think it is safe to say that he is the smartest person we have encountered. It simply does not matter what subject either of my children are reviewing or learning; Mr. Freedman is on top of the situation, asking questions and learning more about my children, both academically and personally. Mr. Freedman displays a passion for obtaining knowledge that is simply unparalleled, and his enthusiasm is contagious.
This teacher has an uncanny ability to make everyone around him understand any subject. He is a naturally gifted teacher and leader and an excellent tutor. If either of my children does not understand what is being taught, he simply begins again or tries another approach. Indeed, Mr. Freedman has been an advocate for my children in our school systems; he makes it his business to know who their teachers are and even reviews the teachers' web pages for upcoming tests and assignments prior to my children's tutoring sessions. Mr. Freedman communicates with us as parents as often as is necessary and does so with my children's teachers if either we or he feels the need for him to do so.
Mr. Freedman is a thoroughly qualified tutor, and choosing him is going to be the right decision for your child."

"Mr. Freedman has been tutoring our son for several months in preparation for the sixth grade. As a result of the work he has done with our son, we have seen changes in just a short period of time in how our child reads and analyzes texts and in how engaged he is in the learning process while doing so. If you are a parent who is seeking an educator who can help your child realize his/her highest potential, Mr. Freedman is the teacher for whom you are looking. In Mr. Freedman, our family has found an educator who is committed to his student's successes and someone who genuinely cares and is passionate about education".

"When I first met Mr. Freedman (Mr. F.), I was quite timid and very unsure of myself. At that time, I was diagnosed with a visual condition that impeded my ability to focus and comprehend. Mr. F. helped me build my confidence by introducing me to strategies, tools, and goals to set for myself. He showed me how to take good comprehensive notes, how properly to read a textbook, and how to implement test-taking skills. As a result, I am now a successful junior in high school, on the honor roll, and preparing for the SAT, and much of this is due to the help of Mr. F."

"I have known Mr. Freedman (Mr. F) for several years, since he had tutored my older sister. I knew that Mr. F. would be able to help me sharpen my writing skills but, most importantly, show me mathematics strategies. With his help, I have been able to maintain an A average in both English and mathematics. I feel very confident as I enter high school and will continue to use all of the tools that Mr. F. has taught me."

"Mr. Stan has been my son's tutor for two years. During that time, he has worked with my child on the improvement of his literary, grammatical, and mathematics skills. It is important to me that Mr. Stan is able to teach many subjects, since my son's needs vary, depending upon his particular school work. Also, Mr. Stan has adapted his teaching style to meet the needs of my son who has learning difficulties. This being said, even more significant is that he has been able to motivate my son to learn. Lastly, Mr. Stan has been a great resource for me as a parent. Namely, he has accompanied me to meetings at school to discuss my son's needs. In addition, Mr. Stan communicates with me very often regarding my son's progress and future educational goals. Therefore, I highly recommend Mr. Stan to any parent looking for a solid and dedicated tutor for his/her child".
