About Frank

I know chemistry AND I have taught the subject for years. I know how to make chemistry clear and accessible to you!

My training is in Organic Chemistry but I also completed the equivalent of a math major in college. By day, I manage a chemical database for a federal agency. Before that, I was a full-time college-level chemistry prof for 20 years and was on the committee that created editions of one of the American Chemical Society's standardized examinations.

I also taught 8th grade students via Summer Science Camps and college astronomy for ten years. I live in Carroll County and work in Silver Spring. I am willing to meet students near either location.

We homeschooled our children through high school and my youngest is a college science major so I've done a lot of home teaching.

I have always enjoyed working with young people who are curious about the sciences. I hope that we can share a passion for science together. I am here to help you!

Frank is Fantastic!!!

Mr. Frank helped me SO much with my AP Chemistry class! In classes where I struggle I like to have someone outside of class to repeat lessons and concepts. He was very, very knowledgeable of the class and knew what to focus on. He helped me a lot! I also felt very prepared for the AP Chem test thanks to him! I would totally recommend him to anyone!
