About Francis

Let me be your personal professor! I am a university professor and tutor with over twelve years of experience tutoring all levels of secondary science, mathematics, and humanities. I hold a Ph.D. in cognitive semiotics from Indiana University of PA, as well as degrees from the University of Miami and Florida Atlantic University. I have tutored high school courses throughout the country, as well as abroad, so I have a wide range of teaching experience. I also have extensive experience tutoring at the college level, and as a professor, I have taught university-level courses in chemistry, psychology, philosophy, and English. Regardless of their level or the subject, my students always improve tremendously after we work together--and they enjoy themselves in the process! My goal is always maximum clarity combined with a practical hands-on approach. I prefer to have students work side by side with me on problems so that they can leave our session with both maximum retention and ultimate confidence. I also strive to incorporate real-life connections into every tutorial in order to bring otherwise abstract knowledge in contact with everyday life. Let me be your personal professor!

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.
