University of Montana (Zoology Pre-Medicine)
University of Colorado (Master's)
Pennsylvania State University (Master's)
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Zoology/Pre-Medicine from the University of Montana (1982), a Master of Science degree in Exercise Science from the University of Colorado (1993), and Master of Science degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from The Pennsylvania State University (2003). I am presently completing a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology. I have taught courses in biochemistry, biology, human anatomy and physiology, molecular biology and have tutored college-age students in the sciences, mathematics, and statistics. I have worked with children, teens, and college-aged individuals in my work history and have tutored the aforementioned age groups. I am flexible in scheduling and encompass all forms of learning styles to bring about an improvement in learning and academic performance. I can not guarantee that your child, teenager, or young adult will achieve the same results as others, but the chances are very good that his/her academic performance will increase from present levels. I look forward to working with you.

Fred, was a fantastic College Chemistry Tutor for my daughter. She was extremely pleased with his teaching ability. Fred ability to take difficult concepts and finds the best approach to really have her master them. I would highly recommend him for Bio-Chem and Health Science Majors like my daughter. She plans to continue to have Fred as her tutor throughout her academic career.
Fred knows his stuff. He is very thorough and teaches the material in depth. My son feels like he has a much better understanding of the Chemistry concepts after he works with Fred.
I don't usually leave reviews, but I wanted to let everyone know that Fred is a very good tutor. My daughter was struggling a great deal in AP Bio and was becoming panicked, scared, and distraught over her sinking grade. She is typically an A student, but Bio was not connecting for her. Fred was able to help her understand what she was missing, engage her, and enable her to bring her marks up significantly. She also fell in love with Bio. Fred gives deep explanations that helps the student understand the principles fully, repeats the tough points lesson after lesson to make sure they sink in, and goes above and beyond by researching extra items after lessons to provide deeper understanding. If you need a tutor that knows their stuff, is passionate about the subjects and truly interested in helping students learn the material, Fred would be a good choice for you.
Fred was great to work with! He was patient, and simplified the material so that I could better understand it. Thanks Fred!
My experience with Fred is still going on. He has met with my son 3 times so far over two weeks. I am very pleased with his ability to treat my teenage son with respect and authority at the same time. I listened to him guide my son through frustration. I give him credit and kudos for being able to take a step back and guide him through difficulty and then push him into problems that he didn't know he could do. Fred took the initiative to contact us and come over to help my son prepare for an upcoming geometry test. He had been over the night before. Then called and asked if he could meet with my son again. That he looked up some more information that would be helpful to my son and his test. I appreciate the kindness and the above and beyond. Thanks Fred.
He's indeed a great tutor. I understood very well the ideas he was trying to get through with. Whenever I needed to call him or reach him, he was available. I recommend him!
Thanks to Fred, my son is able to identify and apply math principals. In just a few lessons, Fred has taken a young man from being lost in his studies to putting him on track to recovery. Don't wait, when you see your child struggling, step in and get assistance. We take for granite what is/is not being taught in our school system. You would be surprised. Thanking you in advance, and look forward to my son passing his test.
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.
I am certified in Algebra I and have taught Algebra I and II in various education venues. I enjoy working with numbers and Algebra is a foundational building discipline used in higher mathematics course. I have also passed the certification examination here at WyzAnt.
I hold a Master of Science degree from Penn State University in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and am very familiar with Biochemistry as it relates to living organisms such as with Human beings. I am also familiar with the biochemical components of special physiological states such as exercise, weight loss/gain, aging, and disease and pathology. I enjoy learning with students either one-on-one or in a classroom setting.
I hold several advanced degrees in the biological sciences that encompass the principles of Biology and am not only certified but feel comfortable teaching this discipline.
I hold a Master of Science degree in Biochemistry and have taught Chemistry and Organic Chemistry at the University and College levels. I have also tutored these subjects on an individual and group basis.
I have taught general math to young adults attempting to complete their GED and in other matriculation scenarios including Discrete Math and adult learners. I have also taught the progression of Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, and Trigonometry to several different populations. These include Middle School, Junior High School, Senior High School, and college-age students in a number of educational venues including public and private schools, for-profit colleges, and conventional universities. I am also certified here on WyzAnt in all of the above math disciplines. I am proceeding toward officially becoming highly qualified in the state of Arizona through taking and passing the battery of NES tests in Math and Science.
I have completed several courses in Genetics enroute to the completion of both a Bachelor of Arts degree in Zoology/Pre-Medicine and a Master's degree in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Microbiology. The total number of my university credits in Genetics courses is 20.
