Together, you and I will work toward giving you the confidence to solve the problems posed to you by the SAT math test, or courses such as middle school math, algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, differential equations, physics, or physical science.

I have a distinguished track record of teaching these classes and tutoring individual students. The students that I tutor go on to truly understand the subjects and perform at higher levels with respect to grades....

I have a distinguished track record of teaching these classes and tutoring individual students. The students that I tutor go on to truly understand the subjects and perform at higher levels with respect to grades.

I invite you to review my over 1500 hours of tutoring experience with WyzAnt, my student/client ratings, and especially student feedback and testimonials.

I am a certified teacher in both mathematics and physics. My bachelor's degree is in electrical engineering. I acquired my teaching certificate through a program at Providence College.

My personal goal is for you to appreciate how clever you really are. I teach using models from the real world to allow you to see how scientists and mathematicians account for relationships and functions using different tools.

We can make this learning experience successful and fun.

I look forward to meeting you.

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I strive to develop a student's Algebra skills from the basics of Middle School math and Pre - Algebra. I like to use models that help a student visualize the concepts of Algebra for greater true understanding (and less memorization).
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have succeeded at helping Algebra 2 students by framing the subject as "Algebra 1 on steroids". This involves seeing through the abstractions of Algebra 2, and developing the techniques to translate Algebra 2 level problems to a series of Algebra 1 level problems. I would welcome the chance to help!
Calculus,

Calculus

I enjoy tutoring Calculus! Calculus comes naturally to me in ways that I can translate "how it works" to students. My approach has yielded successful results. I model real world situations, then develop understandings of them graphically and analytically with students.
Geometry,

Geometry

I find that helping students succeed in Geometry helps them to succeed in further areas such as SAT tests, sciences like Physics and Chemistry, and higher maths like Precalculus and Calculus. To acquire Geometry skills, I work with student to think on paper! This helps them envision what the solutions look like with the process to get to the solution.
Physics,

Physics

I enjoy helping students learn Physics, making the subject highly approachable. I taught Physics as an Adjunct Professor at RWU. The students that adopted the pathways that I modeled went on to excel in class. I would welcome the opportunity to let you uncover the beauty of physics.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I enjoy helping students begin their study of higher level math courses like algebra and geometry by allowing them to develop strong number skills with integers and fractions. With my students, I try to develop an adherence to processes using graphical arrangements wherever possible, in order to help them develop confidence in the solutions that they derive.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus seems like the link to truly higher order math. It combines algebra and geometry. My approach to helping students understand and truly learn precalculus involves introduction to analytic techniques/processes that are easy to master and become second nature. I would welcome the opportunity to help!
SAT Math

SAT Math

I enjoy helping students learn how to prepare for the SAT test for math. I use an approach that is methodical and gives students the confidence that they will then use to approach all types of problems that the Math SAT poses.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I enjoyed and excelled at my experiences taking differential equations courses at Northeastern University as the courses dealt directly with my major of electrical engineering. I have the ability to help you approach the problems posed by differential equations by tying the problems to real world situations. I can show you how to transform problems to simpler mathematics to reach solutions. Thank you. I look forward to helping you,

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

I enjoy helping students learn techniques to succeed at trigonometry. One student of mine used techniques I developed on his tests and quizzes, when his physics teacher asked him about what he was doing. My student explained the techniques, and his teacher was thrilled. His teacher plans to use my techniques!

A great help!

Fred has been helping our daughter with geometry for several months. She failed this subject last year and with help from Fred once a week she has an A. He is also helping her with SAT math. She understands all her math homework and he helps her prepare for exams. We will continue to use his services.

Jennifer, 24 lessons with Fred

Helpful, personalized lesson!

Fred helped me conceptualize the ideas being taught in my undergrad physics II course. He help me understand the ideas behind the equations being used so that I could know when and where to use each one. Thank you so much!

Ava, 1 lesson with Fred

Makes College Physics approachable!

My college freshman daughter said Fred was, "Very good!! Very easy to understand." We are excited to see how she progresses with his help through the end of the semester. Flexible about extending and adding dates too.

Sally Lynn, 25 lessons with Fred

Great Tutor!

Fred was great at helping me understand the quadratic equation and how to apply it to my homework! I feel like he was able to explain it to me in a way i understood it. would definitely use him again! Thanks Fred!

Sam, 2 lessons with Fred

Such a good teacher

Fred helped me ace 3 math quizzes!! He is really good at explains confusing concepts, makes them much easier!

Morgan, 2 lessons with Fred

Outstanding!

Fred wasted no time in tutoring our son. He started right away and was able to unpack difficult material in an easy and engaging manner.

Khalil, 9 lessons with Fred

Great Communicator

Fred has the ability to convey complex concepts in a manner that allows the student to retain and utilize the material.

Richard, 33 lessons with Fred

Excellent and knowledgable tutor

Fred is a patient, reliable tutor. He really knows the material, whether it be math-all levels, physics, or chemistry, and can explain all problems clearly.

Tracy, 22 lessons with Fred

Very patient, kind and knowledgeable

He taught my daughter logo-rhythms, quadratics and other high school math. He taught her new skills that will help her with her IB math. He was very professional, kind, patient, and knowledgeable. Wish we lived here to keep him as tutor.
