About FRANK

Teaching and coaching has been a very large part of my life. Since 1978, I have been teaching or coaching students in a variety of subjects and sports. At the age of 58, I still have a passion for the art of teaching and seeing students increase their learning. I believe that if learning is not taking place then teaching is not taking place. For me to be successful, the student must be successful.
I have taught students successfully from the fifth grade level up through college. I feel very comfortable teaching students at these levels. The academic subjects that I specialize in are mathematics, including Algebra I & II plus Geometry; English, social studies, and history.For these listed subjects, I hold certifications from Tennessee and Maine. My experience spans 30 years in private and public education. I also enjoy teaching Bible; I have done this for about forty years in protestant churches in the state of Maine. I am a very active reader of historical and biographical works and have taught literature at the high school level.
Coaching various team sports is also a passion of mine. Most of this experience is at teaching individual and team skills in the sport of basketball. I have instructed student-athletes from fifth grade through college age.
I have been a tutor at times during my career and am excited about working with many more students in the coming months.
