About Us

 

 

Ms. Anne has worked with families for over 17 years, teaching, tutoring and advising parents and students on academic issues, school choice, and private school admission. Ms. Anne has visited over 50 private schools in the Boston area and knows what schools are looking for in an applicant.

She established Boston Tutoring Center (BTC) in 2002, working with her 11 year old son to prepare for the ISEE (Independent Schools Entrance Exam) for the Boston exam schools and independent school admission. Ms. Anne is an expert in private school admission, and she has two children (a 28 year old son, and a 16 year old daughter) who have attended private schools. She has helped over 1,500 students find a successful school placement.

Every year Ms. Anne hears from dozens of dejected families who “try to go it alone”, and they do not have good results. In fact, Ms. Anne is writing a book on private school admission, and the mistakes she sees parents making throughout the process. Don’t let your child’s applications end up in the “no” pile.

For students applying to independent schools we offer one-on-one, personalized admission consulting services with Ms. Anne and her staff. Students meet individually with an admissions consultant weekly for 6 months to work on school research, resume development, mock interview preparation, and assistance with applications and essays. Support is also provided to parents with their interview preparation, applications and essays, and financial aid applications.

The process is highly personalized and customized to each student and family’s unique needs. The individual attention insures a high success rate as we partner with the student and the family throughout the process.

We have placed hundreds of students at elite exam and private schools over the years. The sidebar contains a list of schools where our students have been admitted in the past few years.

Today we work with students all across the United States, and on 3 other continents - Asia, Europe and South America.
