UQ Science Tutor Fred
A former software engineer tutoring privately, usually at USyd, but I'm at UQ for Sem 1, 2019 (USyd subjects via Skype/Zoom). I'm friendly, patient and work well with students who are nervous about mathematics, students who have had a long break from doing any maths, as well as more confident students aiming for distinctions and high distinctions.
The $50/hour quoted is for 1 hour on campus; 2+ hours are $35/hour. The first hour with a new student is FREE unless you just want assignment help. I WON'T write assignments for students; I WILL clarify & break down assignment questions and revise relevant techniques.
I tutor on campus at UQ most days. Weekends or other venues by arrangement.
Fred tutored me for MATH1004. Not only is Fred well-versed in mathematics, but he also has a great teaching style; he is able to simplify complex concepts and make them so much easier to understand. He is also very committed to his students; Fred took his own time outside of tutoring sessions to create helpful resources to assist me in understanding certain topics. Besides his dedication and vast knowledge in maths, Fred is a very polite and approachable person, so it's easy to ask him questions and communicate with him in general. I would definitely recommend Fred as a tutor!

Fred is an excellent tutor! He really knows his stuff and if you give him the topics you are struggling in, he would revise over it to make sure he gives you a 100% explanation. If you have last minute/urgent questions, Fred would go out of his way to answer you even though he is very busy. He is very resourceful as I have received plenty of resources from him including his own-made solutions to past papers (if the uni doesn't provide them) and his neat summaries of the unit. Due to his great mathematics background, he is able to give you tips/tricks/shortcuts to various concepts and questions which is a bonus in exams! I have Fred for MATH1001/2/3/5 and he has made these units more enjoyable and less overwhelming. I highly recommend him. Thanks Fred!
