About Frank


Bio

If you are having trouble in a high school or college level math class, or are preparing to take the SATs, then look no further. I am a 2001 graduate of Penn State's Math Education department with a minor in Spanish. I have availability during the day, night, or weekends. My specialty is pre-algebra through calculus. In the past year, I have become an expert in online tutoring on here, but am still available for in-person sessions as well.

If you are having trouble in a high school or college level math class, or are preparing to take the SATs, then look no further. I am a 2001 graduate of Penn State's Math Education department with a minor in Spanish. I have availability during the day, night, or weekends. My specialty is pre-algebra through calculus. In the past year, I have become an expert in online tutoring on here, but am still available for in-person sessions as well.

I got back into tutoring 15 years ago purely by accident. I went to pick up my order of Chinese food and saw a sign in the window requesting a math tutor for the owners' son. Over the next two years I'd meet with him repeatedly. It made me realize how fun and rewarding tutoring can be. It's like I'm getting paid to solve crossword puzzles.

Which reminds me, I am also an expert in Sudoku. I sometimes use them to help students gain confidence in problem solving and logical thinking. So if you need assistance in learning Sudoku, I can help with that.

I have experience with every type of student imaginable, from middle schoolers to college students ranging in age from 12 to 60. I even tutored my older sister AND my father at different points.

One of the things I emphasize is learning how to do basic math without the use of calculators. Calculators are great for some problems, like say 23.98342 x .00498, or for statistics. Most students today rely on calculators to do the most basic of tasks, which sadly has robbed them of being able to complete problems that they learned in elementary school. By forcing students to do most computations, their grades and their confidence will improve.

LATE FEES AND CANCELLATIONS... I have found that many students who request online tutoring will set up a time, then fail to log in for the scheduled lesson. My time is valuable, so if this does happen I will have to dock you $20. I don't like doing this, but I have to.

Great knowledgeable Tutor

Frank is a GREAT tutor. Very knowledgeable and helpful. I have been using frank as my tutor for the past weeks for different math assignments, and he never disappoints. He explains math in a way that is easy to understand. And that is something I greatly appreciate!

Sandy, 8 lessons with Frank

Knowledgeable and personable

Frank helped with homework problems and quiz preparation. My daughter understood the material and the one on one was beneficial for her mastering the material. Frank was awesome and we will definitely reach back to Wyzant to work with him.

Toya, 1 lesson with Frank

He knows his stuff!

Frank was great! he helped my son study for his geometry test. My son went from a an F to a B. We were thrilled. My son also has a learning disability which could be frustrating for some teacher, however, it did not faze Frank. Very proficient! I would recommend him.

Sarah, 1 lesson with Frank

Connected with my teen on in a short period of time

Frank worked with my teenager on Algebra 2. In just the first session (that's all we've had so far), my son got to know Frank a bit and they accomplished a lot in terms of helping my son get through the chapter that he was on. We will definitely reach out to Frank again when my son needs help!

Colin, 3 lessons with Frank

Smart and calm tutor

The tutoring lesson I had was more for a review before school, but for the questions I had he answered them very well and it’s nice knowing if I have trouble in math I can just have another lesson

Mauri, 3 lessons with Frank

Knowledgeable and personable

He helped clarify a few math problems in a way that was helpful to me. I’ve only had 1 session so far but I’m looking forward to improving in math. I have tests and work that I need continued assistance with and have scheduled another session

Jennifer, 3 lessons with Frank

Very knowledgeable and patient

Frank is very knowledgeable and he is the first one I call when I need help with geometry. I'm glad to have Frank as my tutor. He has been very patient with me.

Angela, 3 lessons with Frank

Frank is an excellent help to my college son.

Frank is precise, a good teacher, able to establish rapport with teens, and is always ready to teach. He understands and teaches the Spanish language very well. He has helped my son more than any other tutor.
