I have helped students improve their grades and test scores for over 15 years, tutoring students in suburban private schools, urban public schools, Ivy League universities and everywhere in between. In addition to tutoring, I have taught high school math and science full-time for 17 years. Before grad school at Cornell, I taught in Bolivia as a Peace Corps Volunteer. My specialty and passion is for Environmental Science, including AP Enviro Sci (APES), though I tutor in a very wide range o...
Fred's first two pre-algebra sessions have gotten my son more confident woth key concepts. Fred is able to provide guidance then get my son working problems independently within the season.

Fred works very effectively with my son. They study primarily Chemistry and Math. It's very helpful to my son, for both homework and exams. Finals are this week and Fred's help will be critical.

Fred is working with my high school sophomore in a class with a difficult curriculum and a teacher who does not seem to connect with my son in terms of learning style. This is the first time he has had any difficulty in math. Fred has worked well with my son and has increased his confidence and comfort level with the material.

Our sophomore has struggled with Geometry. Fred has been fabulous all year keeping our son focused, patiently explaining the concepts, teaching him techniques to solve problems and memory tricks to keep the various formulas straight. Fred has also really helped with History and Spanish. Additionally, Fred has been very flexible in scheduling lessons around our ridiculous schedule and communicating with all of us to keep the calendar straight. And finally, Fred genuinely cares about our kid and his results. We really appreciate Fred! Thanks Fred!

Fred has a very gentle yet persistent manner. He guides the student's (in this case a boy with trouble in grade 8 algebra) learning to focus on the right steps and this transforms to the student developing confidence and being able to approach the problems with confidence and a set of tools.
- Cristina M. from El Cerrito, CA
Fred has made math enjoyable again for my son. Fred's teaching methods really work for my son, he comes out of each session rejuvenated and excited about math. Fred's style just seems to click for my son. I am grateful for Fred's patience and determination in making my son grasp the concepts that have been so difficult for him to understand at school. Thanks Fred!!

To Whom it May Concern: I am best pleased with Fred's excellent work tutoring my son to a successful B in his Spanish 1 course. My son has Asperger's Syndrome and is not the easiest student to tutor, but Fred was nonplussed from the first and dived right in with him. They worked together well from the outset but I hedged my bets by having Adam take this potentially difficult course credit/no credit. Imagine my surprise and pleasure when Adam made a B grade. Fred will continue to tutor Adam through Spanish 2 this spring term and I am certain of a successful outcome. I can recommend Fred without reservations.
- Valerie S. from Orinda, CA
My daughter has really enjoyed working with Fred. He is tutoring her in IB Math Studies, where she has struggled to C's on tests. She says he is very good at explaining math concepts and she has been able to raise her test scores.
- Chris A. from Berkeley, CA
Fred was very easy to work with and learn from. He sharpened my Excel knowledge so that I can now easily zip through the many spreadsheets I use for my work with confidence. Highly recommend!

Fred did an amazing job with my daughter. We needed to finish our coursework early. He kept my daughter motivated and our goal has been reached!
