In 2019, I was a top 10% Wyzant tutor. My exact percentile was 93.86%, out of a total of 17,575 active tutors. I have earned 18 five-star ratings.

Before I take on any new student, I personally interview them for the perfect fit.

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 obse...
After feeling defeated by failing the Praxis (5081) by one point I turned to this website set out to find a tutor. That is how I found Dr. Fred and I am glad that I did! Dr. Fred is not only extremely knowledgeable but he is a great listener as well. If there was a certain topic that I felt unsure of he would have endless resources to help me understand the topic. Dr. Fred made sure the lessons were not boring and would sprinkle in some humor as well. If you are on the fence about tutoring or seeking help with a subject you should look no further Dr. Fred is one of the best. Not only did I feel confident going into the Praxis again my score increased way more than I needed it to. I am extremely grateful for all the work and time Dr. Fred invested into out sessions.

It was a nice session. He provided interested ideas to get my daughter thinking. I like that he has very calm and relaxing style because my daughter has lots of anxiety about math.

I approached Dr. Fred because I wanted a deeper understanding of logic, more specifically mathematical logic. Dr. Fred introduced me to the teachings of W.V. Quine, where I learned about truth functions, general terms and quantifiers and the general theory of quantification. Dr. Fred was always prepared for each lesson and willing was to help me in areas that I had difficulty understanding. I found him to have a high degree of empathy for his students and more importantly displayed a thorough mastery of the subject he was teaching.

I want to thank Dr. Fred Y. for his tutoring services. He was very knowledgeable and warm. It was easy to ask him questions and he took the tutoring sessions very seriously. He always asked if I had questions and helped in his explanations if I did not totally understand. I would recommend him to others. Also, he knew about many subjects and was very well-rounded. He was able to incorporate many different sources from different platforms to help build on his teaching. Very Thankful! Mike.

While I was retaking a Discrete Math course to improve my grade, Dr. Fred was extremely helpful in increasing my understanding of the topics covered. Dr. Fred took the time to create lesson plans and find material to supplement my learning. His tutoring approach really helped me grasp certain concepts better than I did the previous time I took this course and I believe my final grades reflected that change as well. I would definitely recommend Dr.Fred as a tutor.

Dr. Fred is an outstanding tutor. He?s very kind, knowledgeable, patient, organized and has a great system in place to help my son understand the concepts in a much easier way, being the fact that my son has learning disabilities. He?s great with my son and my son enjoys his lessons with him. He teaches him in a simple, but yet effective way for my son to understand better.

Dr. Fred is one of the best tutors I've experienced. He reached out to me when I requested help for my upcoming Praxis exam in Social Studies. Just within the first meeting, he was able to determine what I needed in order to pass. With my tight schedule and only 4 days until my test, Dr. Fred taught me everything he could by meeting with me everyday until the test. Not only was he flexible, but he took the time and patience in order to teach me every night. Within 4 nights of tutoring, my score went up 25 points. He is incredibly wise and trust me when I say he will teach you everything there is to know. Dr. Fred, I'll be coming to you for everything!!

Dr. Fred was excellent to work with. He was flexible to schedule lessons with and had a positive attitude for each encounter. Without Dr. Fred, I would have not of graduated college. I am deeply honored to have learned from his great wisdom of knowledge.

Dr. Fred helped me in Algebra and a Finite math class. He has patience and knowledge to help me understand. We were able to work through any problem with an explanation to help me understand the processes. He is always professional and made me feel at ease. He was a great help.

In reading your review, I am so pleased with all that you are doing and praying that you will be able to make Kasey the best that he can be and that I believe he has inside of him!! THANK YOU!!! So looking forward to more progress reports and in hopes of meeting you one day and thanking you in person!

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.

I needed help with Algebra in order to apply for a new position. I sent a request for a tutor skilled in Algebra, received a couple of replies and choose Dr. Fred based on his qualifications and his willingness to start tutoring me immediately. I only had a couple of weeks preparation time before the placement test and with Dr. Fred's tutoring I am pleased to say I passed the test. I would highly recommend Dr. Fred and WyzAnt.
