Bio

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 setting goals and making plans for subsequent sessions. As a result of this focused effort, my students are constantly learning and improving,...

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 setting goals and making plans for subsequent sessions. As a result of this focused effort, my students are constantly learning and improving, achieving top marks in their courses.

My education and experience make me a highly qualified and effective tutor. I have a master's degree in mathematics and undergraduate degrees in science and education. I am a state certified math teacher with 14 years of classroom teaching experience both in Canada and Arizona. In that time, I have taught every math course from pre-algebra to AP Calculus. Throughout my career, I have earned a reputation as an engaging teacher with high ratings from students and parents alike!

In addition to coaching high school students, I have also helped adult students succeed in their statistics and discrete math courses. I also regularly prepare students for the SAT and ACT, providing individualized strategies to help them ace their exams.

My experience isn't limited to the classroom. Over the years, I've also developed standardized exams, created online math courses, and engaged in some really cool professional development workshops from brain-based learning to Common Core training!

I tutor out of my home office and online. As a certified online WyzAnt tutor, I offer online tutoring for students whose circumstances may benefit from this option. At this time, I am only available to tutor online.

If you are looking for a patient mentor who can give you homework support, help you prepare for exams, explain the "why" and not just the "how", and boost your confidence in math, then do not hesitate to contact me! I look forward to helping you get your math groove back!

Very committed in getting the best results possible

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.

Awesome Tutor!

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.

Susan, 5 lessons with Fred

Excellent Tutor

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.

Jo, 5 lessons with Fred

Great tutor!

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.

Mira, 9 lessons with Fred

Excellent, knowledgeable tutor

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!!

Alexa, 2 lessons with Fred

Patient and knowledgeable

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.

Laura, 5 lessons with Fred

Resourceful and Knowledgeable

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.

Valerie, 6 lessons with Fred

Great Tutor

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!

Janet, 7 lessons with Fred

Very Nice and Great 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.
