About Fred

My experience consists of teaching math concepts to students who are preparing for either classroom or standardized testing. In addition, I have experience in teaching business and finance lessons to professionals. My teaching methodology is to assess your level of understanding of the material, present the information to you clearly and concisely, check for your understanding, repeat the information if necessary, and to be supportive of your learning. I try to use humor in my lessons to keep them light.

I was always good at math and standardized testing and have a passion for helping you achieve your test goal. I understand the concepts on the math portion of the ACT/SAT and can teach you both content and test taking strategies. There is nothing better than seeing you have that "Aha" moment!

I was the manager of a corporate training department for a large financial services firm. I taught banking and finance classes for the American Institute of Banking. I have successfully taken many professional licensing exams as well as helped colleagues do the same. I own and operate my own business and hold the Certified Financial Planner designation which qualifies me for tutoring in these areas.

If you need help with math, business/finance or test taking, please contact me. I am sure that I can help you have success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Business

I have been in the business world for over 40 years in operations, sales and management including managing a corporate training department. I have trained 100's of individuals in a variety of business topics. I worked with the American Institute of Banking to teach night classes to bankers and was named instructor of the year. When teaching, I am prepared, clear and concise in my delivery, able to check for understanding and repeat information, and remain patient for those needing extra help.

Finance

I have a CFP designation and am currently helping bachelor and MBA candidates with finance courses. In addition I tutor securities brokers for SEC exams.

Geometry

Geometry is my favorite math subject. I have tutored high school students in Honors Geometry including my own son. My style is to keep it interesting by making it fun! Remember Pie are round, brownies are square!

Series 63

I have extensive knowledge and experience in the brokerage business. I currently hold the Certified Financial Planner designation. I actually took and passed the Series 63 test twice due to a corporate change. I have helped other colleagues with this exam as well as the series 66.

Series 7

I have extensive experience and knowledge in the brokerage business. I hold the Certified Financial Planner designation. I have taken this exam twice due to a corporate change and received one of the highest test grades in the company on the second test. I also took and passed all of the related brokerage principal exams (4) total and helped other colleagues to pass the same.
