About Frank


Bio

You should consider me as a tutor if your child struggles with math, or if your child needs help with learning how to solve word problems.

I frequently introduce myself as someone who teaches math as a foreign language. Why? Because math IS a foreign language!

Math has its own language, symbols and vocabulary that is unique to the subject. Some people adapt to learning languages better than others. Some do better learning math.

I look at math as a puzzle, and help my students help...

I frequently introduce myself as someone who teaches math as a foreign language. Why? Because math IS a foreign language!

Math has its own language, symbols and vocabulary that is unique to the subject. Some people adapt to learning languages better than others. Some do better learning math.

I look at math as a puzzle, and help my students help understand how the puzzle works, and break the math puzzle into understandable bits.

Problem solving, and especially solving a word problem, can be daunting and frustrating. However, all you need is a willingness to make sense of the problem using basic math ideas. My common-sense approach works, and teaches students how to be successful, not just in one class of problems, but in dealing with new types of problems as well.

I've been teaching in New York City public schools since 2006, and have taught at various levels, from middle school (where I am now) to high schools, including young adult/GED classes. I'm bright, smart, funny, literate, use art and drawings regularly in my classes, and I genuinely enjoy what I do.

Before my career in education, I've had a successful career practicing law. I have a native New Yorker's view of the world, and consider our city an amazing place to live and learn.
