About Frank


Bio

My educational background is extensive. I attended the University of Delaware, where I earned three majors (physics, computer science, and cognitive science) and three minors (philosophy, mathematics, and political science). I later earned a law degree from the University of Virginia. In other words, I have spent far too many years of my life in school.

In addition to school, I've worked in multiple fields, as a high school teacher, as a computer programmer and a First Amendment lawyer. But...

My educational background is extensive. I attended the University of Delaware, where I earned three majors (physics, computer science, and cognitive science) and three minors (philosophy, mathematics, and political science). I later earned a law degree from the University of Virginia. In other words, I have spent far too many years of my life in school.

In addition to school, I've worked in multiple fields, as a high school teacher, as a computer programmer and a First Amendment lawyer. But what days I enjoy most are the ones where I am helping others explore the world - be it the physical world around them, the social and political world that shapes our lives, or the world of ideas that opens up so many new possibilities. I have done this in the role of a summer camp counselor, a tutor, and a friend.

Please contact me to learn more about my qualifications or schedule a tutoring session. I'm always here to help kids and adults alike learn.

Back to basics

I have a math review that has to be done for my fall semester. A lot of it is basic and I have to take precalc before the fall. Today's lesson was helpful, as I'm not strong in math.

Lauren, 26 lessons with Frank

Great Physics tutoring on 5/9/2018

He helped my daughter with physics. In addition to being knowledgeable and patient, he provides clear explanation of the subject matter and ample time for my daughter to practice and master the concepts. He is the best.

Emna, 3 lessons with Frank

Knowledgeable & patient.

His teaching style is what makes me understand the course better which has improved my grade a lot. If I would have the course in college again, I won’t hesitate to choose Frank to tutor me again.

Hazel, 12 lessons with Frank

Very helpful!

Frank was very helpful in explaining the AP Computer Science questions that my daughter had. They worked on 2D matrices and recursions. He was knowledgeable and took his time in explaining.

Tim, 26 lessons with Frank

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

He helped my daughter learn how to prove triangles similar and congruent. He taught her a new way to think about solving equations. He is very encouraging. We will definitely call him in the future if she needs help with other topics.

Laura, 1 lesson with Frank

Very knowledgeable, and patient and flexible tutor.

Frank is a very patient tutor. He is working w my daughter and allows her to identify what to work on as well as identify where she is struggling. I over hear ah ha's during his sessions and attribute it to Frank's skill at giving the student what they need to understand how to solve problems.
