About Frank

I have a PhD degree from Texas A&M University and hold an Oklahoma, Texas and Missouri teaching certificate. I have a lifelong love of learning and continually push myself to learn new subjects and to investigate new ideas. I want this for those I tutor as well. Learning can be work, but it will also pay off in the end. I have a desire to help students achieve their learning goals either in school or individually. I believe that those who study and learn have opportunities offered to them that others will never have. With this as my motivation, I wish to see every student achieve their maximum potential whether it is in school or preparing for exams to get into a better job.

I have a background in mathematics, chemistry, physics and technology. I have also taught English writing and oral communications. Additionally, I have experience with English and world literature. Presently I am teaching; advanced algebra, triginometry, chemistry and American history. I have lived in China for a number of years and can teach basic Chinese language and culture.

Practice makes you better and with this in mind I do assign homework along with my lessons. This is also a way for both of us to evaluate your progress and to discuss any problems you may have. I hold a high standard for myself and for my students. I believe successes are earned by those that are prepared. And this medium is a perfect way to overcome learning difficulties or to learn new subjects. Learning is a lifelong process and I invite you to let me help you become one of the growing number that overcome the challenges of learning.

I specialize in preparing students in math and English. I have taught students in the areas of algebra, pre-calculus and calculus. I have taught in both high schools and in universities. Math is a special love of mine because I have found it opens a multitude of pathways in the sciences and technology. By mastering math the student does more than learn the process of calculation, they learn to organize all their learning experiences.

I have also taught a wide range of English courses from speech, ESL and communications courses to academic and creative writing. I am also experienced in preparing students to take TOEFL. My experience includes teaching oral communications, interpersonal communications and public speaking. I have taught both APA and MLA forms of writing. At one time I also taught software documentation and acted as an editor for a universities publications.

Learning is a life long reward you give yourself. It is something that can never be taken away, so come join me in mastering those obstacles you may face.
