About Fred

I come from an actuarial background, so I am comfortable with teaching any math subject, including algebra, geometry, statistics and trigonometry. In addition, I have over 20 years' business experience in developing spreadsheets in Microsoft Excel, including graphs, pivot tables and extensive use of VBA for automation. I have also worked in IT for over 6 years, and I designed my own curriculum and have taught SQL to a variety of clients, from novices to experts.

My approach to tutoring is simple: find out where a student's roadblocks to learning are, and develop a personal approach to help the student overcome those roadblocks. I remember back when I was a teenager and had a difficult time with algebra. The teacher was not approachable to me for assistance; my father only had an 8th grade education and could not help me. I had to train myself to find alternate ways of getting past my "roadblocks". I was successful, obtaining a 96 on my N.Y. Regents final exam. I would like to extend that method of alternate thinking to my students to help them excel as well.

I have a B.S. degree in Mathematics from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, N.Y. I have over 25 years of actuarial experience (both in life insurance and property & casualty).
