All of Francesca’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Francesca’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 2

I have taught this subject to students from ages 13 to 57, and I realize how difficult it can seem. So I work on improving not only students' understanding of the subject but also their confidence in it, to ensure that what they learn they will also retain for future use.

C++

I first started programming in C++ in high school in 1999. Since then, I have used the language in college during labwork and for personal amusement, but not professionally. I am capable at teaching the basics of logic and translating specific problems into code. I would not be the best choice for the experienced, but may be ideal for a beginner.

CBEST

I took the CBEST as part of joining the Santa Clara Teacher Credentialing program and passed without studying on the first try. I regularly tutor almost all of its topics at an equal or higher level than they are presented in the exam.

MATLAB

MATLAB is the primary programming resource used by my university's physics program. As a result, I have used it a great deal, both as a basic mathematical tool and for more complex physical system modelling and signal analysis. I would a good match for beginning students, but perhaps not for those with years of experience in other languages.

Physics

As my degree subject, Physics is my primary tutoring subject. I take a particular joy in teaching it with direct connections to a student's own experiences, using the world to make sense of the math, and using the math to make sense of the world.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
