About Frank

My name is Frank, and I would like to share my background! I have worked at a Math Learning Center for 3 years now. I had to take an initial assessment and pass a test to start working there. I can do elementary math, middle school math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra I. The material taught in those courses are 2nd nature to me, and I feel I can be of great value to those that are in need of help in those areas. After Algebra I, my memory starts to fade, and I would have to retake the Geometry and higher level courses to remember all of the material. It was never too hard, I just don't remember all of it. I always got A's in all of my math courses. When working with students, I feel it is best to help them out initially with some problems, and lay things out step by step. Then I think it's effective to have them work on their own a little bit, just to try to problem solve and critically think on their own. A major road block for most of the kids that I've worked with is their confidence, and it can be boosted when they realize that they really can do it! Also, I've noticed with the students that struggle the most, sometimes I just need to slow the teaching down a little and go over the steps very carefully. This requires patience and the desire to help, and I feel I have both of those qualities. I am very honest, on-time, compassionate, and caring, and I feel I am strongly qualified to tutor math through Algebra I!! I think that is enough for now, I hope you choose me for your child's math tutor!!!

I graduated with a degree in Accountancy in 2007 from Northern Illinois University. I worked in both public and private Accounting, and after a few years I realized that it wasn't right for me. I was kind of bored, but wasn't 100% sure why. I always liked the bookkeeping aspect, and I didn't let go of that. In 2009, my mom started up a cleaning company , and I have been working with her since then. I was able to still do bookkeeping, as well as data entry, mass mailings, and assisting on a few office cleaning jobs. As time went on, I realized that even bookkeeping was a little too boring for me and wasn't enough for me. I started realizing that none of the accounting work that I was doing was people-oriented enough. I did some career searching and career tests, and I've realized over time that the one subject that I have always loved was Math!! I've always been naturally good with numbers; working with them is second nature to me. I always loved all of the math subjects that I took back in school at all levels. It took me a while to realize that the reason why I thought I liked the business world and the accounting world was simply because I was working with numbers. In 2013, I decided to only work part-time for my mom, and and become a Math Tutor part time as well. I am working at a Math Learning Center currently, and I am having the most fun that I have ever had on a job, by a wide margin! I love to help people, and it is very rewarding for me to see students grow and work through any struggles in Math that they may have. I have finally found my calling!
