About Frank

I am a currently certified teacher so I've had my education classes and numerous background checks. I have a BS in biochemistry from the University of Illinois, a MS in Organic Chemistry from the University of Minnesota and a JD from Northwestern University.

I am working as a substitute teacher in Illinois, have worked as a teaching assistant in college and grad school and was a tutor for the Office of Minority Affairs at the U of IL. My strength has always been in individualized instruction.

I have always liked teaching. Even before getting my formal teaching training, I have tutored students, taught IP law, worked as a teaching assistant, and taught martial arts. I thrive in the one-to-one tutoring structure, which allows me to try different ways of approaching difficult to understand subjects. It also allows me to listen to the student's struggles and concerns and modify my approach according to the student's needs.

I believe that all students can be successful by doing their best. I also believe that doing their best includes proper preparation. As a former attorney, I know that preparation is the foundation for mastery of unfamiliar subjects. Any student can succeed if they buy into the premise that they can succeed by working hard. I have led students in that direction in the past and can do it with your student.

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.

Martial Arts

I am a second degree black belt in the martial art of Tang Soo Do. As a black belt since 1999, I have taught self-defense to large classes of children, teenagers and adults. I have also tutored a student through his black belt test.

Organic Chemistry

I earned my Organic Chemistry Master of Science from University of Minnesota. While at U of MN, I was also a teaching assistant in organic chemistry for 4 semesters. I was a patent attorney for Abbott Laboratories specializing in pharmaceutical synthesis and analytical methods with an organic chemistry focus.

Study Skills

With a BS in biochemistry, a MS in organic chemistry, a JD, and a Master of Art in Teaching, I have had extensive practice organizing my study time and honing my study skills. I have also taught science, math, English and history to students that range from elementary school to high school. As part of my teaching, I have had to help my students with their organization and study skills.

Great first session — Frank was terrific. He showed up on time and was ready to get right to work with my son. He quickly picked up on what my son was missing and why and concentrated on those areas in both math and science. Looking forward to our future sessions. ...
