But, above all, I consider my real DUTY to be helping YOU, individual students and professionals of all ages alike, SUCCEED in your endeavors, by sharing with you not only my academic knowledge (doctoral degree from a top university) but especially my rich, practical, hands-on, real-world, industry experience.
Tutoring is what I have always been and will always be doing.

Very Knowledgeable in Various Programming Languages

Frank Z. is a very knowledgeable, patient tutor. He took the time to answer all of the questions I had, and explained them in depth when necessary. He was able to assist me with a challenging project I had to complete with tight deadlines. I will definitely contact him again for my next project.

Going Extra Mile

Frank is a very responsible tutor. As a parent I can see him truly go out on his way to make sure his students understand the material and get great result. I'd highly recommend Frank.

Steve, 2 lessons with Frank

Responsive to the need to focus on topic

Powershell series starter, a plus. Just really needed the chance to type it in on my computer. So had to use Team Viewer, to get that. He did that rather than stay stuck in the Apps white board. This what I needed to get off center and start working in PowerShell.

Great knowledgeable teacher in Computer Science!

Frank helped our son complete his Computer Science assignment while coaching him through the process. He was very patient and collaborative in his approach. We will be sure to ask Frank's help again to answer our needs.

Gisele, 1 lesson with Frank

Knowedgeable and patient tutor

Frank has helped immensely with picking up coding in the language of C. He has a tremendous background in computer science, along with other areas of knowledge such as physics, and has the kind of demeanor and style of teaching that allows you to relax and learn the subject at your own pace. Highly recommended.
