About Frederick

Hello,

My name is Frederick J. and I am a former student at the University of Florida. I am currently not in school until next semester in which I plan to transfer to Florida International University and obtain a degree in Mathematics. With this degree, I plan to either become a teacher or work in an corporate business company that requires math majors. Based on my grades in school, I was always on top when it came to math. My mom, who is currently head of a high school math department, was the one who taught me the subject and I understood it on the spot. In the 3rd grade, I was in a math bowl in which I was captain of my team. Despite the loss, I am glad God gave me the opportunity to represent my school in a prestigious way. I like sports, math and music. I am a great person and I have experience in tutoring from when I was a tutor at the North Miami Community Center. Kids who didn't know math when I first tutored them know it now. I would be more than glad to assist your children in understanding the subject as I did.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is a comprehensive course in the elements of algebra. When taking this course, students will develop an understanding not only of basic algebraic principles and techniques, but also of how to model and solve real-world problems. Students will study the writing, graphing, and solving of linear equations and inequalities, both individually and in systems; the basics of quadratic, polynomial, and exponential functions and their graphs; and the fundamentals of probability and data analysis.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is an advanced math course for the student who is looking to master the subject. Beginning with a review of some of the concepts and principles introduced in Algebra 1, Algebra 2 deals with topics such as linear and quadratic relations, irrational and complex numbers, polynomial functions, logarithms, trigonometric functions and identities, statistic and matrices. Though I took this course in the 9th grade, I still am able to remember the subject and teach it to the new generation.

Chess

I was in the chess club in elementary school as well as a chess tournament and it was a fun and great experience. Chess is a thinking and challenging game in which the object is to checkmate your opponent's king. This means that the king has been positioned to not move without being taken.

Elementary Math

Elementary math mainly consists of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Without these concepts, students can't apply these to more advanced subjects such as pre-algebra, algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2 and trigonometry. Other concepts that can be learned in elementary math consist of the following:

-decimals
-fractions
-sequences (i.e. 1,3,5,7 2,4,6,8)
-mental math

Geometry

While algebra is more on a logical level in which many numbers and variables are used, geometry deals with the measurements on angles and finding degrees of angles in different shapes, mainly the triangle. In geometry, students learn about degrees, base, height, hypotenuse and the different types of shapes that can be measured. The triangle is the most used shape in geometry and the following triangles are found in geometry:

-equilateral triangle
-isosceles triangle
-scalene triangle

Other concepts that are learned in geometry are as follows:

-acute angle (an angle that measures less than 90 degrees)
-obtuse angle (an angle that measures more than 90 degrees, but less than 180 degrees)
-right angle (an angle that measures 90 degrees)

The Pythagorean Theorem is used in geometry in which it is used to find a certain side of a triangle. The formula is a^2+b^2=c^2. The largest side is called the hypotenuse. For example if a triangle consists of the sides 3,4,5 them 5 would be considered the hypotenuse since it is the largest number. Therefore 3^2+ 4^2 = 5^2; 9+16= 25 which is true.

Prealgebra

Pre algebra deals with the basic concepts needed in order to advance to algebra. Some of the basic concepts found in prealgebra are the following:

linear equations
Probability
Number sense
Geometry
Solving for x

In order to understand algebra, a student must be able to figure out equations that solve for x, understand how to do probability and remember what types of angles and triangles are in geometry.

Reading

Reading is one of the most intriguing things to learn and understand. Many people know the English language due to the fact that they like to read. Reading is beneficial for communication amongst individuals.

I learned how to read at the age of three and I have taken it with me throughout my life. Not only does reading help with communication skills, but it can also helps with sense of direction especially if people go on road trips and need to know how to get to their destination.

The concepts I have learned in reading are the following:

-vocabulary
-grammar
-context clues

There are many books such as Harry Potter that can really help your child with reading because of the level of creativity and imagination the books partakes in every chapter.

SAT Math

SAT Math deals with the concepts of algebraic thinking, measurement, geometry, etc. Math on the SAT is universal and many people do well on this section of the SATs. In order to receive a high score on the math portion of the SATs, it takes a lot of studying and practice of math problems from different concepts.

Concepts that can be found on math portion of SAT:

-algebra
-geometry
-probability
-trigonometry
-measurement

Spanish

Spanish is one of the most Intriguing languages to learn and understand. Many people believe that Spanish is the second most popular language behind English. In the United States, many people know the English language, but in many schools Spanish is taught to many students who adopt the language in their daily lives.

I learned the language at the age of six and I have taken it with me throughout my life. Not only does the language help with communication skills, but it can also be a factor in helping my chances of getting a good job.

The concepts I have learned in Spanish are the following:

-vocabulary
-grammar
-reading
-writing
-oral speaking

Spanish is a fun language to learn and can be an intricate part in your child's life.
