Teachers Who Tutor | LA Directors

Abby Freireich and Brian Platzer

TWT | NYC & LA Co-Founding Directors, Teachers & Tutors

Directors Abby Freireich and Brian Platzer founded Teachers Who Tutor over a decade ago in New York City, where it was the sole tutoring service composed of expert classroom teachers paired with students from kindergarten through senior year. Our services are wide-ranging to ensure that every learner’s needs are accommodated, whether through remedial academic support or for enrichment in all subjects: English, history, math, science, foreign languages, and much more. We also specialize in tutoring services including executive functioning support and test preparation sessions for every type of standardized test from the ISEE, SHSAT and SSAT, to AP tests,  to the SAT and ACT. At Teachers Who Tutor LA, we are committed to the idea that all children can attain success as autonomous learners when they understand the basic skills to help them in school and beyond. If your child has support of our team of tutors, their sessions will be highly individualized.  

After decades of teaching, Abby and Brian believe that all children and parents benefit from tutoring support that is open and collaborative. Their years of experience as teachers, tutors, parents, master’s degree recipients, and Taking the Stress Out of Homework authors, have all shaped Teachers Who Tutor. Their renown book instructs parents how to help their children help themselves with homework. Taking the Stress Out of Homework has received rave reviews from teachers, students and parents. Jenna Bush Hager hailed the book with this praise,“As a mother of three, this book’s practical road map for helping our kids learn independently is invaluable. This should be a must-read for all parents.” Abby and Brian explain the concrete steps for students to strengthen their academic and executive function work as well as bolster their confidence.

As part of their commitment to supporting students and families, Abby and Brian have also written for The Atlantic as education columnists. In addition, their articles and interviews have appeared in outlets ranging from The New York Times and Good Morning America, to NPR, CNN, CBS, and the CBC, among many other education-focused blogs and publications.
