About Frank

I am a writer, designer, creative director and seminar leader, and I've taught students and professionals alike to embrace new concepts and ideas and communicate them clearly and persuasively.

I am qualified in English (creative writing, English structure & grammar, reading); history (American history, world history, government, geography); math (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, probability); science (biology, chemistry, physics); and literature (including poetry and drama). I also have experience teaching Mac computer skills.

I am the Creative Director and Principal Marketing Strategist for an award-winning New England marketing consultancy. I have a Bachelors degree in English from the University of Notre Dame (pre-med minor), and a Masters degree from Syracuse University in Journalism & Communications.

I believe much of what makes a subject "difficult" has less to do with the material and more with how you approach it. I would enjoy the opportunity to make leaning fun and rewarding for you!

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.

Hi! I'm an award-winning professional creative director and copywriter, and I know that a thorough understanding of English is essential for success – in college and throughout your career. I have advanced training in English language, creative writing, literature and journalism from the University of Notre Dame and Syracuse University; I am also a NY State Regents scholarship winner in English.

Adobe InDesign

I am a creative director for a NH advertising consultancy, and have been a professional award-winning graphic designer for nearly 30 years. I have been using InDesign since its inception (and before that, QuarkXPress). I have extensive experience integrating InDesign into other Creative Suite programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.) on the Mac platform.

I have been a creative director and graphic designer for over 25 years, and have used Photoshop as a principal tool since its inception. I am proficient with its use on the Mac platform; I am also proficient with its integration into other Adobe Creative Suite programs (InDesign, Illustrator, etc.). I have extensive experience in photo retouching and photo-design, and regularly use Photoshop to modify and enhance existing photography. Photoshop is an amazing tool – you could spend a lifetime exploring its potential!

Drums

I first started playing drums in 1976. I have been a professional drummer and percussionist since 1981. I have considerable live performance and recording experience. I am proficient in many playing styles: most forms of jazz, most forms of rock, and Latin/Afro/Cuban. I have considerable experience on percussion instruments from around the world, including China, Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East, North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, South America, Celtic, and contemporary American/European orchestral.

I've also been a professional copywriter and scriptwriter for 30 years. I will help you master English so that you can be more successful – in school and in your career.

Grammar

Hi! I know grammar ranks as many people's least favorite subject – all those rules! But mastering grammar is the key to communicating more effectively, whether verbally or through the written word. I have a knack for making sense of grammar, and I know I can help you master it. I am a professional copywriter and script writer (30 years); I have a BA in English from the University of Notre Dame and an MA in Journalism & Communications from Syracuse University; and I am a NY State Regents Scholarship winner in English. Let's work together soon!

Hi! I know that mastering the written word can be a daunting task, but I'm here to help. I can teach you to clearly organize your thoughts and convey them succinctly and convincingly. I can give you the tools you need to become a superior writer.

Spelling

Hi! So many people ask, "Why is spelling important?" I am a professional copywriter and script writer, and I have been a professional journalist for newspapers and radio. For these jobs, obviously, spelling is essential. But I've seen firsthand that being able to spell correctly is the secret to success…in college, and in just about any job. If your written words are well-crafted and spelled correctly, you're on the fast track.
