Bio

Before I take on any new student, I personally interview them. I use NLP, energy testing, sports psychology, personal observation of the student's responses to ascertain both their learning style and what barriers, psychological or otherwise, that impede their learning. For example, in taking on a certain math student, I observed that he could not get the answer until he writhed, wiggled, and fell on the floor. I taught him kinesthetically afterwards. Among the students who benefit most from ...

Before I take on any new student, I personally interview them. I use NLP, energy testing, sports psychology, personal observation of the student's responses to ascertain both their learning style and what barriers, psychological or otherwise, that impede their learning. For example, in taking on a certain math student, I observed that he could not get the answer until he writhed, wiggled, and fell on the floor. I taught him kinesthetically afterwards. Among the students who benefit most from this approach are athletes, those who work with their hands, mechanically inclined persons, and so forth. I have taught students, male and female, who were being recruited for professional, if minor league, opportunities. They went from failing math to A's in algebra.

Next to my over nine years of college and university teaching, I have over fifteen years of experience in teaching math, writing, reading, social sciences, and have even supervised laboratory experiments for homeschoolers and substituted for math, writing and science teachers. I have 48 graduate credits in Special Education and have taught two adult students with TBI, students with EBD, who have dyslexia, or have fetal alcohol syndrome. I have taught a student with multiple LD's. I use this same approach with "normal" students as well, to give them an enhanced learning experience. Whether it’s remediation, enrichment, or just some extra help, I am qualified for K-12, adult learners, and high school and college students.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I have taught through calculus to homeschoolers, who have gone on to enroll in private universities. I have taught the objects studied in discrete mathematics, e.g., integers, graphs, and the predicate calculus (statements in logic). There is no formal definition of discrete mathematics, except for what it excludes, which is continuous flows of numbers; however, it has come up in my teaching of algebra, pre-calculus, and introduction to calculus. Part of my PhD in philosophy included 3 quarters of study of logic, including the predicate calculus through Goedel’s Incompleteness theorem. Part of discrete mathematics involves social choice theory, which I dealt with in my PhD thesis.

So looking forward to more progress reports and in hopes of meeting you one day and thanking you in person!

Debbie, 10 lessons with Dr. Fred

Good Reading Tutor!

My grandson was so happy about his firt tutoring lesson with Dr. Fred! He said "I really like him and he is so nice." Good News!

Jeffrey Allen, 128 lessons with Dr. Fred

Very patient with our "distracted" child!

We were so pleased to have Dr. Fred provide tutoring services to our son in Reading. He was thorough and creative and our son made great strides. In the course of our time with Dr. Fred, our child was diagnosed with ADHD and Dr. Fred was SO helpful and patient with him. Even when he would get off of his chair about 10x an hour, Dr. Fred would redirect him and use unique strategies to get him back on track. Dr. Fred filled in a huge gap for us and truly helped during a chaotic time in our family life.
