About Frank


Bio

Hi,
My name is Frank. I have been teaching Physics for nearly a quarter of a century. I have taught GCSE courses for the London University Program as well as the University of Cambridge local examination syndicate. In addition I have taught American high school physics, AP physics, and, most recently i am teaching IB physics at a local school. I have been associated with IB as an assistant examiner since 2006. I also teach pharmacy math at a local college.

Hi,
My name is Frank. I have been teaching Physics for nearly a quarter of a century. I have taught GCSE courses for the London University Program as well as the University of Cambridge local examination syndicate. In addition I have taught American high school physics, AP physics, and, most recently i am teaching IB physics at a local school. I have been associated with IB as an assistant examiner since 2006. I also teach pharmacy math at a local college.

In addition to teaching I have had a fair amount of experience as a technical examiner to physics practical exams by University of Cambridge. These experiences are a great advantage when I teach students not only the syllabus content but also how to pass and score well on the exam.

Math is the language of physics. I speak it very well. Even though I have little to no need for higher math such as calculus and more abstract aspects of trig etc, I extensively apply math to physics. This gives me the unique perspective of seeing its application. For example, even though students are taught rules for significant digits, I can explain the application aspect of understanding sig figs. Same is true for Algebra, Geometry and trigonometry.

While I am always willing to help students with complicated problems, I prefer not to do the students' homework for them. Similarly, I find it unethical to solve computer assignments (homework, test prep etc.) for the students while they sit back and enter my answers into the spaces and score points. My function is to help students comprehend and then solve problems themselves.

I can help students understand the content and then I can go beyond and tell them how to answer exam questions and how to take on exams so that they come out on top at the end.

If you or a friend of yours is struggling or just looking for that little extra to be able to stand out, contact me.

Tutor that is very insightful with clear knowledge

Mr. A helped me with my IB Physics IA (an IA is a research paper). Having been an IB examiner, his feedback was very IB oriented and he outlined and explained aspects of my IA which needed to be outlined more clearly to fit the criteria of the IB. While I did not learn any content with Mr. A, I am certain that he is a tutor who would explain Physics concepts in great detail and get his students to understand such concepts to a fundamental level. My experience with Mr. A was extremely positive.

Excellent tutor

Before taking sessions with Mr. Frank I was confused in Physics. I asked him whatever questions I had, and he answered all of them perfectly. He was extremely patient and understanding and would make sure that I was satisfied with his explanations. His method of answering the questions allowed me to actually understand the concept rather than simply memorize it. He was a great help to me and I am sure he will be to anyone else who struggles in Physics. Learning from his has allowed me to get a 7 in physics!

Knowledgable and helpful teacher

Frank had started teaching my younger son Physics for AP level and he do teaches with patience and he put his full effort so that student understand the depth of the subject with this simplified techniques and notes so that they are able to answer the question from any type of curriculum.Only two classes had gone but my son is able to interpret the concepts clearly.I 'am satisfied and hope my son achieves good results.

Great

My daughter said Franks explained everything really well - she said she fully understood what they were working on. And perhaps more importantly was encouraging and didn't make her feel like an idiot.....a desperately needed change from her school teacher. We'll be signing up for more!

Physics 🤦

This is my first time ever being exposed to physics and to be frank (no pun intended) it's not an easy feat....no back ground knowledge whatsoever. Frank has been able to make physics relatable for me, he breaks the concepts down. Almost like a gradual release, until I understand. I read my text and attend lecture but it makes no sense to me but when I see frank he is able to explain the concepts to me. Physics is more application based than computation so if you struggle with word problems and knowing how to adequately read a problem to understand it in it's entirety, I suggest you give Frank a try. My only issue is he forces me to think about gravitational forces and kinematics knowing that I have no prior knowledge and need to rely on his knowledge until I began to see a pattern but he does it so I can think in terms of a physicsts. Had my first exam, thought I was going to fail but ended up getting a B and that would not been possible without Frank stepping in to help bridge the gaps in my knowledge.

Great help for our young adult!

Frank helped our young adult with AP Physics. He helped us get acquainted with difficult physics concepts to give our young adult a better understanding of homework material.

Wonderful tutor

Frank was incredibly knowledgeable about the Physics subject, and was incredibly good at explaining concepts and helping lead you to the correct path of logical thinking. During our lesson, he asked meaningful questions that really helped grounding my understanding of certain topics. If you are looking for a Physics tutor that is great at explaining and a guaranteed helpful session - Frank is the tutor you are looking for! I look forward to my classes with Frank in the future.

Excellent Tutor

I often give tutors a 5 star rating but I never write reviews. Frank is the only tutor I've written a review for because he's such a great tutor. My daughter had an urgent AP Physics II test the next day and contacted him the day before. Frank was not only extremely flexible but also so knowledgeable about the topics and so great at explaining. He really knows how to make confusing concepts easier to understand with analogies. After just one lesson, my daughter was able to understand everything she was stuck on that even reading test prep books couldn't help. I highly recommend Frank's tutoring.
