Do you enjoy learning, making things work, or solving interesting problems? Of course! To enhance your work in these endeavors, you may want to fill in gaps that occur in the rush through your workday, classes, sports, music/art lessons, etc. My goal is to help you identify those gaps and eliminate them. I would like to share with you the methods and habits that I've attained during my career as an Engineer, a Division 1 athlete, college professor, and STEM tutor. My promise is that...
Do you enjoy learning, making things work, or solving interesting problems? Of course! To enhance your work in these endeavors, you may want to fill in gaps that occur in the rush through your workday, classes, sports, music/art lessons, etc. My goal is to help you identify those gaps and eliminate them. I would like to share with you the methods and habits that I've attained during my career as an Engineer, a Division 1 athlete, college professor, and STEM tutor. My promise is that you will see your subject in a new light, look forward to taking on the work/exams/assignments, and gain a sense of power in the knowledge. You will see your lessons as fun, exciting, and useful, resulting in time savings and better performance in your endeavors.
My undergrad and post-grad studies, and 30+ years of on-the-job experience as a Computer Software Engineer (MSEE) have been just as enjoyable as the hobbies, sports, and music I've experienced. Learning about the laws of Physics, math tools and principles, computer languages and applications is really a matter of 'perspective' and 'balance'... A positive 'perspective' comes from recognizing where the material fits into your future, why it's worthwhile and valuable to you, and how it relates to other knowledge you have already acquired. 'Balance' implies that will see your education as a journey that sometimes has unsure footing, but if you strive to stay on track, you'll reach your destination.
My tutoring philosophy: 1) Clear 2-way communications to understand your potential knowledge gaps or misunderstandings, 2) build on your existing foundation to fill the gaps, and 3) reinforce each lesson with practice and feedback. Along the way, I will guide you toward more optimized independent learning if applicable.

Knowledgeable and patient
Frederick took topics slow and steady where as someone without a background in Electrical Engineering can Understand. He also related it to the real world describing how the components of our problems relate to real hardware. He also does a good job of describing electrical components as things found in our everyday life making ECE easier to understand as a whole.Joseph, 7 lessons with Frederick
Great technology teacher!
My son is 9th grader in Middlesex STEM high school. He was facing challenges in circuits and logic gates. Mr Frederick helped him and with in one 60min class he started feeling comfortable with subject now. He is taking ad-hoc classes from Mr. Frederick when needed and he highly recommend Mr. Frederick to others.Brij, 2 lessons with Frederick

Excellent tutor, patient calm & clear
My son has used Rick for high school algebra I and Algebra II. My son enjoys working with him as he made algebra seem easy & understandable. As a parent, I think Rick really cares about his students. He is just as happy for his students when they get the A as they are! Highly recommend!!!Kim, 47 lessons with Frederick
Professional, knowledgeable and patient tutor
My son just had first engineering class with Frederick. Frederick is a very professional, well prepared and knowledgeable tutor. Prior to the class, he has prepared powerpoint and organized all the studying materials ahead. Also, he explained the important information to my son patiently. My son told me that Frederick can guide him professionally.May, 3 lessons with Frederick
Frederick took his time with my daughter which I really appreciated. He walked through the questions step by step being sure to review the basics when necessary! I’m very grateful that we’ve found someone that is willing to be patient and kind enough to explain and make it make sense! Thank you! We look forward to our next session.Tiffany, 3 lessons with Frederick
