About Francois


Bio

I have many years of experience both as a high-school and junior-high-school teacher and as a tutor in math and science. I currently work at an online school that also tutors students at the office. I especially like tutoring because there is a rewarding feeling when you see a student brighten up because they understand the material they were formerly having a hard time with at school. I've taught the following subjects as a classroom teacher: biology, chemistry, pre-algebra, algebra,...

I have many years of experience both as a high-school and junior-high-school teacher and as a tutor in math and science. I currently work at an online school that also tutors students at the office. I especially like tutoring because there is a rewarding feeling when you see a student brighten up because they understand the material they were formerly having a hard time with at school. I've taught the following subjects as a classroom teacher: biology, chemistry, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, health, and English. I've tutored students in geometry, chemistry, algebra 2 and pre-algebra. (These are mainly students that came to me by recommendations of students I formerly tutored or by teachers/administrators that were familiar with my tutoring abilities.) Also, I tutored English as a second language at Lane Community College in Eugene, OR. Most of my tutoring students meet me either at Barnes & Nobel, Starbucks or Subway, but there are a couple that I met at their house.

In my tutoring, I will usually try to come up with helps for memorization (mnemonics) of what to do to solve certain equations, sometimes utilizing silly sayings that are easily remembered. I like illustrating ideas in different ways, looking mainly for something concrete to explain something abstract. I have tutored secondary and primary students, as well as college students.

I have a B.S. degree in biological sciences from U.C. Irvine, a TESOL Certificate from Northwest Christian University, and a California Professional Clear Teaching credential (from CSU Chico) with authorizations in biology, chemistry, foundation-level math (which goes up through algebra 2 and probability/statistics), health education, ESL and introductory English. I have also passed the National Teacher's Examination in general (integrated) science.

I taught K-2 many years ago in a private school. I also took several courses in Liberal Studies (Elementary teaching prep) at Cal State, Hayward (now called East Bay). Currently, I am an after-school teacher at Juniper Elementary/Middle School in Redding, CA, and I substitute teach in many elementary classes. I have the needed background knowledge for many subjects, and I've tutored several elementary students in English, and at least one in math.

Knowledgeable tutor

Francois helped my daughter with her biology homework. He broke down the questions after we got to the right answer, he explained why all the other answer choices were wrong. After Francois read the question, he asked her what all the vocabulary words meant and what she thought the question is saying. The lesson was very productive because in one class, they went through and discussed 30(!) questions. You can tell that Francois is knowledgeable because he was very friendly to her. We are thankful for his work.

Ming, 1 lesson with Francois

Very patient, extremely helpful.

Worked really well with my daughter who is a high school junior taking Math 2. He made sure to find a solution and explain the process of which to get to the solution and made sure my daughter understood it.

A Tremendous Help

My son had a 45 on his previous Geometry test, had 1 session with Francois, and got a 74 on the next. Also, he was available at times that fit our busy schedule. We'll definitely be working with him again.
