“**Very effective tutor!**”

As a math tutor, my sole focus is on my students' success. I have made tutoring my full-time job because teaching is my passion and helping students succeed is my greatest reward. That passion for teaching will come through in our sessions together! I do not stop working for you at the end of each session. When I am not in front of students, I am

Fred tutored me with two courses, Brief Calculus and Elementary Statistics. It was a unique experience because we conducted sessions over Skype and used a website which allowed us to write out problems, formulas, solutions, and different concepts. Fred explained how to solve difficult problems which I wouldn't be able to do on my own. I could tell that Fred is a very effective tutor because I understood many difficult problems, he has good communication skills and acted very professional during every session we had. As a result, I have finally passed Calculus after the two previous attempts of my own. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend having Fred as a tutor.

I would highly recommend Fred K.'s tutoring services. My son has ADHD and was struggling with Algebra 1 concepts and needed help with his final exam so he could pass the semester. Fred was very patient and worked out a system that would help my son to retain as much as possible due to his ADHD. He is extremely flexible with scheduling and dedicated to the success of his students. With only a couple weeks of prep time Fred helped my son to easily pass his final exam. Also, for the first time, my son actually understood Algebra 1 and gained confidence in his math skills.

Fred is very patient and encouraging. He did his very best to help me learn and always made sure I understood what he was teaching for my SAT prep. He is definitely great at explaining things in a way that is understandable. Great tutor all around.

My child had Fred K as a tutor before taking the SAT test. Fred K gave my child the encouragement and confidence to succeed in the Math portion of the SAT. My child's score went up a lot from the pretest the first time before tutoring. He was patient and explained everything so that it was easy to understand. He also gave helpful tips on taking the test not only in the Math portion but in other areas too. He is a concerned tutor that cares about his students. He followed up with me as a parent almost daily. I would not hesitate to use Fred again for my other kids.

My son had pretty tough time getting good grades in algebra 2. I've hired a couple tutors from this website, but it seemed like they couldn't explain the material well or were not familiar with topics at all.

Fred is an actual teacher who is not only familiar with topics, but is able to explain it in a simple way, so my son was able to improve his grades. I would highly recommend Fred as a tutor. The only drawback is you would have to drive to him to have a session, which could be quite time-consuming. But he offers online session that can be a solution for those who don't need face-to-face interaction.

Fred has been tutoring my 16-year-old daughter in honors geometry. We are new to the area, and she has had to make some strides in keeping up with math. Fred has been just the right person to help her get up to speed in math. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and has saved her valuable time in doing homework and studying for finals. We would recommend him to anyone looking to enhance their mathematical skills!!

Fred did a fantastic job of explaining concepts to my daughter. She was frustrated with math and common core, and after just one session with Fred she felt her confidence coming back. She finished her school year prepared for the next.

Our daughter has enjoyed her time with Fred K. In only a few visits her understanding of mathematics has improved. He has shown her new ways of approaching math that will help her continue to build on her skills. We're very happy with the results.

Fred is a great tutor. He is very patient and helpful, and best of all, he knows Calculus very well! He is able to answer every single question my son has and make him understands the rules and concepts. Very easy to reach and very responsible; you can text or email him, he replies within 30 mins. Fred is an awesome tutor!

Fred is a very nice and great tutor. He taught my son in AP Calculus BC. My son told me that Fred is way better than his current teacher at school. My son can understand the concepts and know much more of this AP Calculus BC class now. I strongly recommend Fred to you if you need a tutor to help.

What an amazing tutor we have here! If only I could be as smart as Fred! He has been very patient with me, as math does not come easy to me at all. He's always willing to meet me around my busy schedule and is always on time. He really knows his math and has helped me learn a lot, more then I could have on my own. I am preparing for the ACT test and as an adult it's a bit embarrassing that I don't know or "forgot" how to do math, but he has no judgement against me and always makes me feel comfortable. Even sharing a laugh here and there. I was always embarrassed to ask for help in high school which was 10 years ago but now I know I need to do this and Fred is wonderful in helping me! I'm very grateful for him and to be learning from a wonderful math teacher!!

Fred is an outstanding tutor! At first I was nervous about using a tutor because I didn't feel as if I needed one. But when the class started, I knew I needed that extra assistance to ace the class. Fred was very patient and understanding of the specific needs my math class required. Whenever I was stuck and needed assistance on a math problem, Fred was a phone call, text message, email or even a Skype away.

The open communication structure Fred delivers is precise and to the point. I asked Fred for a specific outcome and he provided it. Fred delivered weekly onsite tutoring that lead to an eventual understanding of College Algebra. He works with your schedule, and provides current technology that fits your needs to ace your math class. Fred is the tutor I will contact for any math concerns that I have!

Fred has been working with my 17 year old daughter with Algebra II. He has been consistent with communication, prompt with his appointments, and very informative and helpful with the tutoring.

My daughter was very pleased with Fred and his ability to help her understand the subject matter. I'm very pleased.

Fred is an excellent tutor with remarkable patience and easily explains Calculus concepts to me. He welcomes me into his home and offers a quick beverage while we get ready for the session. Then he asks what you would like to work on for that day and he will already have prior proficient knowledge. So there is little to no way that he will not already know the concept in depth. His patience with me is remarkable and he adapts quickly to my pace of learning a specific concept. He will even squeeze in a little extra time to make sure that your tutoring goal for the day is met. My only complaint is that unless you live nearby him, he will charge for driving to you if you live closer to the Phoenix metropolitan area. Getting to him (at least in my case) can be difficult because there is only one road that can take anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes to get to his home. With that aside he is overall a fantastic tutor, five out of five stars.

Fred has been helping my daughter with her Honors Algebra 3-4. He has a very positive and cheerful personality, is very accommodating (time wise) and REALLY knows his math! He knows how to break difficult subjects down so that they are more understandable.

My daughter was having trouble with using trigonometric identities to solve equations on restricted domains. She also needed help proving given trigonometric identities using known sum, difference, double-angle, and Pythagorean identities. This is important because not all tutors have been familiar with these concepts, and we wasted critical time. Fred really knows his subject and he is able to communicate it VERY well to those needing help.

Fred is very accommodating. We live far away from him, so he tutors my daughter online and has all the technological tools to make it easy. From working with Fred in only a few sessions, my daughter has really improved her understanding of Algebra 3-4 and she feels much more confident about that knowledge. Fred is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him as a tutor!

Fred is a great tutor. I walked into my MBA Stats class with little expectation that I would learn something. But through Fred's support and patience, I am doing well.

I believe that Fred has made all of the difference for me because he is willing to go above and beyond by looking at my homework problems ahead of time which means we can hit the ground running when we actually do meet. I highly recommend Fred!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.
