## Great Tutor

Lynda, 93 lessons with FrankFrank is quite helpful to my daughter. He has a way of helping her understand geometry. She says Frank will go through the problem and explain things fully and well. As a former teacher, it is apparent he has the "teacher gene," which makes him want see his student succeed. I highly recommend Frank!

I recently retired as a high school math teacher, enjoying 11 years working with students. Subjects include Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Advanced Functions & Modeling, Pre-Calculus, Math II, and Math III. My experience in private tutoring has been very fulfilling, seeing students improve their grades from failing to excelling. Students are comfortable working with me .

Prior to teaching, I was an engineer for 26 years, designing and installing systems. I know where math is used,...

Common Core
#### Common Core

I have taught numerous classes of Math II and III, along with tutoring students in these and Math I topics. Prior to Common Core, I taught several sections of Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II, concepts covered in Common Core. I used my engineering background to inform students as to where concepts were used.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

I have taught and tutored math levels from general math to Pre-Calculus. My students did well on their state assessments.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

I have taught many sections of regular and honors Geometry. As a former engineer, I can relate the geometric concepts to real life use, thus motivating students in their learning. Much of Geometry is taking figures and solving for various components of the figure. This involving employing the given data and generating algebraic equations that are then solved. I help students understand why various data is given, and how to set up those needed equations.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

I have taught several sections of Pre-Calc. My students' scores were some of the highest in my district on the state final exam. Many students taking Calculus have come back to thank me for preparing them for Calculus.

SAT Math,
#### SAT Math

I have taught most math courses, including Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Advanced Functions & Modeling, Pre-Calculus, Math II, and Math I. My students sought me out for tutoring on ACT and SAT math.II. Having taught Algebra I to Pre-Calculus allows me link math concepts for better student understanding. I can also link these concepts to real life as I was an Electrical Engineer prior to teaching. My knowledge and experience will definitely help students' ACT and SAT math Scores.

Trigonometry,
#### Trigonometry

Trigonometry is introduced in Geometry, and extended in Algebra II, Advanced Functions & Modeling, and Pre-Calculus. I have taught many sections of these courses, and I'm effective in growing the student's knowledge and use of trig. As a former engineer, I can further their understanding of trig by linking its use to real life.

Frank has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **21 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Knowledgeable and motivational tutor

Frank is a knowledgeable on the subject matter and more importantly is adept in working with my teenage son who not only needs support in the subject matter, needs a little motivation.

## Breath of Fresh Air

After a couple of back-to-back math teachers who weren't the best instructors, my son felt lost in Algebra 2 and Pre-Calc. Frank did a great job presenting topics and helping my son to feel more comfortable about what he knows and how to remember it.
