About Frank

After 36 years working in chemical engineering, I enjoy tutoring. I teach math, science, history, and English.

I've taught engineers around the world in not only engineering and math, but how to write. I study history, and like to teach world history. I also have taught vocabulary extensively, and technical and composition as well as creative writing.

Engineering required rigorous math, and I've been interested in making it clear to students, including my own 4 children. I've studied math during most of my career.

I use Feynman Lectures as a basis, and textbooks, of course. The method is first of all to make it interesting and to know the goals and requirements. Physics is fun.

In teaching engineers to write, especially non-native English speakers, I developed some unique methodology but using classical methods. It works for composition, technical writing as well as creative. Most importantly, the writer becomes comfortable with writing and enjoys it.

History is my hobby and so when I teach, it is enjoyable. I've read all of Arnold J. Toynbee, Edward Gibbon, and most of the ancient authors as well as many modern. The events are engrossing when seen from the historic forces as well as the struggle of great and simple people. Learning the necessaries is far more exciting when seen as a series of adventures.

Learning is fun and efficient when taught for the student's point of view.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I'm a retired engineer and have always liked math. Most students find it confusing and the key is for the student to develop a reliable methodology.
