About Fred

Together, you and I will work toward giving you the confidence to solve the problems posed to you by the SAT math test, or courses such as middle school math, algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, differential equations, physics, or physical science.

I have a distinguished track record of teaching these classes and tutoring individual students. The students that I tutor go on to truly understand the subjects and perform at higher levels with respect to grades.

I invite you to review my over 1000 hours of tutoring experience with WyzAnt, my student/client ratings, and especially student feedback and testimonials.

I am a certified teacher in both mathematics and physics. My bachelor's degree is in electrical engineering. I acquired my teaching certificate through a program at Providence College.

My personal goal is for you to appreciate how clever you really are. I teach using models from the real world to allow you to see how scientists and mathematicians account for relationships and functions using different tools.

We can make this learning experience successful and fun.

I look forward to meeting you.

This student started working with me on Geometry on a weekly basis in March 2015. This student has made great improvements!

"Very disappointed "

- William, Somerset, MA on 4/3/15
Fred replied on 4/6/2015

Whenever I tutor, I make sure to check in with the student mid - stream to make sure that our session is progressing. William gave me no indications that he was more confused. This session that I had with William was roughly 1 1/2 years ago in November 2013.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I strive to develop a student's Algebra skills from the basics of Middle School math and Pre - Algebra. I like to use models that help a student visualize the concepts of Algebra for greater true understanding (and less memorization).

Algebra 2

I have succeeded at helping Algebra 2 students by framing the subject as "Algebra 1 on steroids". This involves seeing through the abstractions of Algebra 2, and developing the techniques to translate Algebra 2 level problems to a series of Algebra 1 level problems.

I would welcome the chance to help!

Calculus

I enjoy tutoring Calculus! Calculus comes naturally to me in ways that I can translate "how it works" to students. My approach has yielded successful results. I model real world situations, then develop understandings of them graphically and analytically with students.

Differential Equations

I enjoyed and excelled at my experiences taking differential equations courses at Northeastern University as the courses dealt directly with my major of electrical engineering. I have the ability to help you approach the problems posed by differential equations by tying the problems to real world situations. I can show you how to transform problems to simpler mathematics to reach solutions.

Thank you. I look forward to helping you,

Geometry

I find that helping students succeed in Geometry helps them to succeed in further areas such as SAT tests, sciences like Physics and Chemistry, and higher maths like Precalculus and Calculus.

To acquire Geometry skills, I work with student to think on paper! This helps them envision what the solutions look like with the process to get to the solution.

Physics

I enjoy helping students learn Physics, making the subject highly approachable. I teach Physics as an Adjunct Professor at RWU. The students that adopt the pathways that I model go on to excel in class.

I would welcome the opportunity to let you uncover the beauty of physics.

Prealgebra

I enjoy helping students begin their study of higher level math courses like algebra and geometry by allowing them to develop strong number skills with integers and fractions. With my students, I try to develop an adherence to processes using graphical arrangements wherever possible, in order to help them develop confidence in the solutions that they derive.

Precalculus

Precalculus seems like the link to truly higher order math. It combines algebra and geometry. My approach to helping students understand and truly learn precalculus involves introduction to analytic techniques/processes that are easy to master and become second nature.

I would welcome the opportunity to help!

SAT Math

I enjoy helping students learn how to prepare for the SAT test for math.

I use an approach that is methodical and gives students the confidence that they will then use to approach all types of problems that the Math SAT poses.

Trigonometry

I enjoy helping students learn techniques to succeed at trigonometry. One student of mine used techniques I developed on his tests and quizzes, when his physics teacher asked him about what he was doing. My student explained the techniques, and his teacher was thrilled. His teacher plans to use my techniques!

Outstanding tutor — Fred helped my son bring his HS math test grades from Ds to As! I am currently recommending Fred to others, and getting great feedback from them as well. Fred is professional, personable, reliable, responsive, and an excellent teacher. If my son needs tutoring in Math or Science next year in his first year of college, I would contact Fred even before utilizing college tutoring on campus, due ...
