"Fantastic tutor who is dependable, knowledgeable in his subjects and extremely patient."
Lisa from East Providence, RI on 6/17/13
I highly recommend Fred to tutor your child in math. My son, a high school senior, was failing Statistics/Trigonometry, a required course to graduate and somehow, someway, Fred was able to bring his grade up to above passing in a short period of time. Result: I have a very happy high school Graduate.
Fred is dependable, knowledgeable in his subjects and extremely patient. He was able to immediately determine where the ‘disconnect’ was between my son and Stats/Trig. Fred clearly has experience teaching a variety of students and was easily able to adapt his teaching style to a level that my son could understand.
My son was very comfortable working with Fred and was never afraid to ask questions. Fred answered every single question and yes, the same question, sometimes more than once. Again, Fred is extremely patient and very willing to help. Utilizing Fred as a tutor significantly reduced my son’s test/exam anxiety. My son was able to go to class understanding the subject matter better which allowed him to focus more and relax.
Bottom Line... If your child needs a math tutor, Fred without a doubt should be your choice. He truly has the qualifications and positive attitude to get your child on track for success.

Tutoring with Fred was fruitful. He was energetic and lead well with his math tutoring.
I will definitely contact him again later.
"Great tutor and very accommodating"
Cindy from Portsmouth, RI on 5/31/13
Fred has helped my son since January and helped break down complex problems into manageable pieces. Fred taught him lots of different ways of attacking each problem. I really think it contributed to my son getting a 650 on the SAT. He is also very prompt replying to emails and was flexible if we had to cancel a session.
"Great physics tutor!"
Cornelia from Jamestown, RI on 4/27/13
Fred B. has been tutoring my 9th grade son in physics for the past several months. It has been a great experience. My son finds Fred easy to talk to and excellent at explaining any of the concepts that he still has questions about from his physics class. While my son was initially very hesitant about getting a tutor, he now feels extremely happy to have Fred come to tutor. Having the opportunity to talk through the concepts presented in his physics class one on one, has totally changed his experience of physics and has improved his performance dramatically. In fact, he recently has received an award for the most improved science student for his improvement in physics. I highly recommend Fred B. as a tutor.

Fred B. was a great physics tutor. My daughter's test scores have gone up and she passed the physics course she had been struggling with mid-term.
"Well worth the time and money"
Gregory from Lincoln, RI on 12/19/12
Fred was a terrific tutor. He was patient and very and understanding. He will be my number one go to tutor in the future. Thanks for being available and thanks for your knowledge Fred.
"Great tutor! Patient and very knowledgeable!"
Sean from North Dartmouth, MA on 12/2/12
Fred is an awesome tutor! He is very good with algebra and trigonometry. Fred has been very good with teaching me several ways to approach a problem. He has taught me simple things to remember that can solve anything in trigonometry. I look forward to our tutor sessions with a better understanding on trigonometry and algebra afterwards. I highly recommend Fred to anyway who needs help with college math!
"Great job so far."
Ron from East Greenwich, RI on 11/14/12
Fred gets my son, is patient, and has a great way with the student. Since Fred has started to work with my son his test scores have been going up.
Moua from Warwick, RI on 8/28/12
WOW! That is the best way to sum up Fred's skills and abilities. He unexpectedly shocks me with each and every session we had. EVERY problem we worked on, he was able to solve accurately. What I loved most about Fred is 1)he was able to explain the lessons in a way that I can understand very easily. But when my professor would try to explain the lessons, it was SO difficult and complicated to understand. Also, 2)Fred NEVER rushed me. He was always very patient. He understood that it takes a long time for me understand something and had no problem answering my questions. I'm the type of person that would ask a million questions or the same question a million times until I understand it and he never seemed to get frustrated with me like my professor would.
"Fred is excellent"
Vin from Wrentham, MA on 1/4/12
I have nothing but very good things to say about Fred. He is patient, available, thorough, knows his subject, and is able to explain AP calculus to my daughter in a way that she can grasp and apply. In the short time that he has been working with my daughter, she has gone from struggling to get low B's on her tests to getting A's on the two tests she has taken while under his tutelage. He is excellent.
"Best Tutor Ever"
Bethany from Wakefield, RI on 7/26/11
Fred was quick to respond, made time when my daughter needed it, very punctual, but most of all EXCELLENT tutor !!!
"Positive energy and confidence booster!"
Karen from Saunderstown, RI on 4/23/11
In February of this year when it became clear that my son needed a different perspective on AP Calc I wasn't sure where to turn. After finding WyzAnt on line, I was completely impressed with the set up and the ability to read the bios of the different tutors available for this subject. Fred seemed like the perfect fit for my son...his background, his interests and his passion for math. Fred was just what my son needed...a different mind set, a positive energy and a major boost to his self-confidence. I am thrilled to say that thanks to Fred, my son's grades have improved and his passion for math is back on track.
"Makes difficult subjects easy to understand."
Denise from Middletown, RI on 3/3/11
Fred has helped my daughter understand Physics - her test scores have gotten so much better and she no longer dreads going to her Physics class. Thanks!
Michelle from Newport, RI on 12/6/10
My daughter has been struggling in AP Physics and AP Calculus, but knows when to call for help! After searching for a tutor that specializes in both, we were fortunate enough to come across Fred. After only a few sessions she scored an 84 on her Calculus test and, get ready...a 98 on her physics test! Fred has also been very flexible with scheduling, fitting us in quickly if another tutoring session is needed before a test. Can't recommend him enough to family and friends!
"Outstanding Tutoring Method"
Laura from New Bedford, MA on 10/31/10
Fred is very knowledgeable as an Electrical Engineering tutor and as a tutor period. Fred has the ability to read a question and get right to the point, he knows what is being asked and more importantly what is being taught by the type of question being asked. Because Fred can pinpoint this very concept, he is able to expand on the subject at hand by making sure 'the student' understands everything about the question being asked. Fred's approach is very friendly and courteous, he teaches step by step and acknowledges your understanding along the way. I would recommend Fred for any grade level of tutoring whether it were basic to advanced engineering courses.
Suzanne from Taunton, MA on 10/6/10
This was my daughter's first session with Fred and it was awesome. Fred arrived on time and was very friendly. My daughter was very comfortable with him. Sarah said that he gave her background information that she had been missing and helped her with her current assignments. She is excited about Physics now and is looking forward to Physics tomorrow in school because she understands it. We can't wait for him to come back next week.
