About Frank

I have always loved teaching languages, because I love learning them and using them. I have tutored for French at all levels and Spanish, Italian and Hebrew for all beginning and intermediate students. My first language is English, so I know how to give explanations for things that will make sense to an English speaker. I have also tutored people in English grammar and vocabulary and ESL. Several times, I have prepared high school students for their ACT and SAT exams, and have worked with them on their written statements for college applications.

I enjoy tutoring and take my work seriously. I stay for the entire hour and am patient with questions. Although I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I am available to make up lessons. I stay in contact with students and parents after lessons to give constructive feedback on how the student is doing. And I appreciate hearing constructive feedback about my lessons so that I can better tailor them to a student's needs.

I live in the Venice area and see students throughout West LA, Culver City and sometimes to mid-Wilshire and Hollywood.

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.

French

Bachelors degree in French language and literature from Cal State Northridge.

Masters degree in French literature from UCLA.

Certificate of completion University of Aix-Marseille, France.

Hebrew

I was trained to read and write Hebrew as a child, during religious studies. Later, I travelled to Israel where I lived for a year, taking classes to perfect my use of Modern Hebrew. I can now read newspapers and stories as well as write and converse in Modern Hebrew. I have also tutored one child and one adult who were learning Hebrew.

Study Skills

I have a master's degree which required a lot of reading, note taking and essay writing. I have tutored high school students preparing for the SAT, and I helped them to stay organized and to write clear essays. And I am good at mapping out a daily schedule for people to keep them on track with the work they need to get done.
