Frank puts students at ease, explains concepts clearly, and employs a wide range of teaching and math skills to give you the highest quality tutoring experience. It's time for you to get the help you deserve.

He takes care to give as much guidance as is needed, but no more -- so that the student grows independently capable.

Any student who has questions in between tutoring meetings can easily reach Frank for a quick Skype tutoring session to get those questions answered.

HobbiesTo be honest, my favorite thing to do is tutoring math. When I'm bored, I ask my friends and family if they need any math help.
I also like going on evening walks with my wife, hanging out with our 3 cats, and playing games with friends.
Note: My rates range from $180 per hour to $240 per hour, based on tutoring subject matter, but those rates are negotiable.
