About Fred

The first thing I want to find out from you is why do you want or need a tutor. This helps you to know just what you are after and also for me to know how to modify my approach to fit your needs.

I have a PhD in Biochemistry with a minor in Physical Organic Chemistry. And much of my biochemistry experience has been with microbial and fungi sources so I have additional strength in that area. Everywhere I have worked I have been the one that people came to when they wanted to learn something new or to set up a class, so teaching and tutoring have been part of my career. I have always been teaching people even though I have never been an official teacher. I have tutored people since college when many people asked for help with their different science and math courses.

Any age group, from high school newbies through college age to social security receivers, I am comfortable with in tutoring. What is most important is what you want and where you are in the subject matter and where you want to end up.

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.

Biochemistry

I have a PhD in Biochemistry, I have worked in a Biochemistry lab for over 40 years, and I have tutored in the field of Biochemistry.

Chemistry

PhD in Biochemistry with a heavy and working minor in Chemistry. Officially my PhD minor was Physical Organic Chemistry.

Microbiology

I was originally trained by a microbiologist before coming an enzymologist, and then became a protein chemist. I have never had a batch of homebrew go bad from contamination because of my microbiology experience. I have grown bacteria and fungi up to a scale of 12,000 liters

Organic Chemistry

My minor in my PhD program was Physical Organic Chemistry plus my thesis was highly made up of organic chemistry Throughout my career I have been my own organic chemist to make the compounds that I needed and either couldn't find or afford.
My tutoring experience started as an undergraduate with other students that needed help considering that organic chemistry is a major hurdle for many science students And knowing that problem is a first task to discover just what problems they are having I teach organic chemistry in a way that is as little memorization but a true understanding of each compound and reaction As i was told years ago push those electrons around and you will know what really should happen in a reaction.
