About Frank


Bio

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 .

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, and can easily relate math concepts to the real world.

My style of instruction is one of guiding a student through a concept, and then relating this knowledge to standard formulas the student normally sees in a math class. I can help students see how concepts from previous math classes relate to their current studies. Having taught from Algebra I to Pre-Calculus allows me link these relations.

With my background education and experience, I can definitely help a student understand math concepts and be successful in their math career.

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.

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.

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.

Amanda, 1 lesson with Frank

Knowledgeable tutor

Frank helped My daughter realize that she has to practice more in order to work through the math problems quicker. He taught her how to figure out problems she didn't understand. He also taught her other math SAT strategies.

Kat, 1 lesson with Frank

Incredible tutor!

He is patient and has many tips and tricks for teaching Precalculus. I learned so much from him, and I am finally understanding my math class!

Azza, 8 lessons with Frank

Knowledgeable and Helpful

The price is right and that tutoring is outstanding! I have had Frank tutor me the night before exams and still receive high grades on the exams! Great tutor!
