About Frank

Hi, my name is Frank. I am an ASU graduate with a B.S. in Applied Mathematics, a B.A. in Philosophy, and a Master's degree in Secondary Education. I have a passion for learning and teaching, and I want to be your tutor. I have years of experience tutoring at the Student Success Center at ASU and being a full-time high school teacher. Also - and most importantly - I love mathematics, and I have a deep desire to help students of all levels. Having been a teacher, I know the right questions to ask that can quickly increase retention and improve learning. I have loved mathematics my entire life and am extremely patient with students of all levels and ages. If I am your tutor, I guarantee you will succeed and learn more than you originally thought. Thank you and I hope to assist you in the future! :) Hi, my name is Frank. I am an ASU graduate with a B.S. in Applied Mathematics, a B.A. in Philosophy, and a Master's degree in Secondary Education.

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.

ACT Math

ACT math consists of Pre- Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. Since all of these math classes are classes that I have done extremely well in, it should follow that I can teach students these concepts. Like many of the high school math classes, it is fundamental to my knowledge and I have several ways to get to the same answer. If one way does not work for you, I can always show another way to get the same answer. Also, as I recall, I did very well on this exam, and I bet you will too if I am your tutor.

Algebra 1

I am qualified to tutor Algebra 1 because it is the foundation of all mathematics. I am extremely knowledgeable in mathematics and that would be impossible without impeccable algebra. I have tutored many many people over several years with algebra and I guarantee that I can provide a way that will be understandable to any student. Whether it be purely mathematical or highly intuitive, I can find a way to explain any algebraic topic.

Algebra 2

Having been a teacher in the Peoria Unified School District, I can guarantee that I am competent to tutor Algebra II. I taught Algebra II at the high school level 7 times, and I know all of the important information you will need to know. At this level, mathematics can be described in many forms. I can use visuals, comparisons, and relevant facts to help sharpen the skills of any student. If I am your tutor, I can promise that you will be much more successful than you imagined.

ASVAB

I am eligible to tutor the ASVAB because I have taken it and done very well. I typically specialize in mathematics although I can help with the other portions quite well too. I have helped people double and triple their ASVAB scores. I also have an ASVAB book that can be used a study guide. If I am your ASVAB tutor, you will score well.

Basketball

I would love to help anyone learn how to improve their basketball skills. I played in high school as well as Intramural at Arizona State University. I have a tremendous passion for basketball and love the game!

Calculus

I am qualified to tutor Calculus because I have took it in high school as well as I took it at ASU. I have tutored many people in Calculus while helping students at the student success center at ASU. I can tutor Calculus 1, 2, and 3. I guarantee that if I am your Calculus tutor, you will understand Calculus deeply and succeed.

Chess

I am qualified to teach chess because I have a rating of 1710 and am a solid class B player. I could not teach one how to become a grandmaster, but I could teach a beginner how to advance their play and become an advanced one. I can demonstrate common tactics, strategies and openings.

Elementary Math

I am more than qualified to tutor and teach elementary math because it is the core of all mathematics. Math at the elementary level can be explained in a variety of ways. I will be sure to convey a way that best suits the understanding of your child. I have helped some college students with this level of math. Although the questions may slightly vary, I know what to expect and how to answer them.

Geometry

I am qualified to tutor Geometry because I took Advanced Geometry in high school. Since then, Geometry has shown itself in some of the higher math classes. Since Geometry is a fundamental math, it is a must know for a math major like me.

Logic

I am qualified to tutor logic because I have taken 2 college level logic courses and I have done very well in both of them. Logic is very natural to me and I can teach it in a way that is strongly intuitive. I actually enjoy doing logic proofs for fun so I am sure I can make it fun for you too.

Philosophy

I am qualified to teach philosophy because it is one of my two degrees that I have from ASU. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Philosophy with a focus on the Philosophy of Religion and Logic.

Prealgebra

I am qualified to tutor Pre-Algebra because it is fundamental to knowing all of mathematics. Like Algebra 1 and 2, it is pivotal to know the basics in order to succeed in math. I have tutored several people in the student success center at ASU West and many have told me that I explain Algebra well to them.

Precalculus

I am qualified to tutor Pre-Calculus because it is a prelude to one of the biggest subjects in all of mathematics: Calculus. I took this class in high school and I received a grade of over 100%. This is the foundation of Calculus. Since I have taken all 3 Calculus classes, Pre Calculus is a subject that I am more than comfortable with and I am sure you will learn a lot.

Proofreading

Being a double major in mathematics and philosophy, I have written a lot of papers. Given this, I have the experience of understanding sentence structure and how to properly formulate one's ideas. I would be more than happy to proofread a paper and help promote this intelligent style of writing.

SAT Math

SAT math is something that is a compilation of several of the key concepts in mathematics. Everything on the math portion of the SAT is fundamental to math and that means that I can tutor it extremely well. I have helped many people with this type of test preparation and I am sure that if I am your tutor, you will succeed.

Table Tennis

I have a lot of table tennis experience in my life. I often play against a man who was nationally ranked. Also, I have beaten him quite a few times. Thus, I am more than qualified to improve one's table tennis game. I am not an expert but I can certainly help get any level player better!

Tennis

I am qualified to teach tennis because I have played for several years. In high school, I participated in the state tournament and did quite well. I am an avid tennis fan and I have taught people before!

Trigonometry

I am qualified to tutor Trigonometry because it relates to common things in life. Being a tutor at the ASU success center, I have created diagrams that best illustrate the point of Trigonometry and that make learning it a walk in the park.

Excellent Calculus Tutor!

Frank was an excellent tutor for my son. Without Frank's help, I don't think he would have passed the college-level Calculus class he was in. My son describes him as a genius and a cool guy. Frank answered all phone calls and texts quickly which was appreciated. Scheduling tutoring sessions was not a problem. I think Frank should consider becoming a math teacher at the college level because there
