Hi, my name is Fred. I have taught and tutored math in both high school and Grossmont College for over 15 years. I am certified to teach all levels of math in high school and have a Master's in Statistics/Biostatistics at SDSU. I truly enjoy teaching and tutoring students in math and statistics and I believe my student ratings reflect that.

Hi, my name is Fred. I have taught and tutored math in both high school and Grossmont College for over 15 years. I am certified to teach all levels of math in high school and have a Master's in Statistics/Biostatistics at SDSU. I truly enjoy teaching and tutoring students in math and statistics and I believe my student ratings reflect that. My method of combining patience, simplification and directness has surprised many students as the ease of learning concepts they originally thought to be very difficult.

I am extremely patient at teaching a concept and totally focused on the student's understanding of that concept. I specialize in simplifying concepts of Statistics and Calculus and am very adept at preparing a student for a test of any type. Much of this ability to prepare a student for a particular test comes from being a high school baseball coach for over 10 years. I have been very successful in working with AP Statistics and Calculus students.

As a retired teacher my schedule is very flexible and accommodating. I tutor daily from 12pm until 9pm and on weekends from 9am to 6pm.

True Professional

Fred not only displayed his professionalism, he also cared a great deal about ensuring that his client understood the material. I could tell that was his first priority, rather than being there to make a quick buck. I could tell that he had a strong understanding of calculus. He was able to explain, each step, the concept, and how to approach each of the variations within a specific subject.

A Very Intelligent, Patient, and Encouraging Tutor

Fred is a great tutor and very knowledgeable about all types of math. I was struggling in Algebra 1, and everything I didn't understand, he was able to adress easily. I've only taken one lesson with him so far, and I can already see improvements. He helps you understand very easily and has a unique teaching style. There were also a few concepts that I just couldn't quite grasp, but he was encouraging and pushed me until I had absolutely no doubts about what I was doing. Overall, he is a great, incredibly helpful tutor.

The. Best. Tutor. Ever.

Fred is awesome. Hands down the best tutor I've ever worked with. I'm sure many others can say the same. He is so friendly, easy going, super understandable, very easy to work with, able to project where ones strong points and weak points are. He is a math genius and can easily solve any math problem in just a few seconds. He knows how to do it in his head and on paper so that was very helpful. I needed to raise my ASVAB score two points and I believe he helped me do that as I haven't received my test results back yet but I was very confident on the math portion of the test which he helped me with. Thank you so much, Fred! Miss you my friend! You are the best!

Made advanced statistics easy to understand

Fred is an excellent tutor. He made difficult information easy to understand and master. His range in subject material was impressive to say the least. He is extremely friendly and personable, I felt comfortable asking questions and clarifying concepts from my course with him. I look forward to booking Fred for many more tutoring sessions to come!

Patient and experienced

My 12 year old is bright yet disinterested in math. We had a pain free lesson and plan to continue.
