About this tutor

I've been on the backend of teachers that lack enthusiasm and empathy to understand what students go through. I don't just teach, I teach with care, patience, and in ways that allow students to apply the knowledge they gained. In the end, I don't want to lecture, I want to teach in a way that students can achieve their goals, feel better about their confidence in a subject, as well as apply those skills to the real world.

Tutor with knowledge on the psychology of learning and what helps students better learn new material, retain knowledge, and most importantly, apply them.

I apply the learning pyramid which states retention rates for various learning techniques are:

Lecture<Reading<Audiovisual<Demonstration<Discussion<
Practice Doing<Teach Others

I focus on allowing students to reaffirm their knowledge by teaching others the concepts, practicing problems, having in-depth discussions, and demonstrations.

Subjects: Algebra I/II, Geometry/Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus I/II, AP European History, AP American History, AP Spanish, Biology, English, Religion, and subjects related to Computer science.

My take on teaching:

"I know not that not all students are created equal. One size does not fit all. Some students prefer a different learning style and I adapt really well to that. My philosophy is to create an environment that allows students to think openly and critically. I love teaching and I am going to do whatever it takes to help get my students to achieve high levels of success."

Experience: 6+ years of experience.

I am currently a Senior undergraduate student at New Jersey Institute of Technology studying Computer Science and Business with a minor of Data Analytics. My GPA is currently, 3.8.

In my spare time, I embark on learning new programming languages and creating software programs that can help the world become better through efficiency and social progress.

As for recent awards, I was NJIT's 2018-2019 Student of the year for my academic, volunteer, and leadership work. 

From 2013-2017, I went to a Union County Magnet High School and graduated with a certificate for AutoCAD and experience with civil engineering and architecture.

Getting to know students and having a positive impact on their education. It is an exciting feeling for me when a student understands a complex topic.

I consider myself as a creative catalyst in tutoring students. I think outside of the box very frequently to match the learning style and personality of my student. I want them to succeed in whatever they set out to do.

I think there is a frequency that students learn best. My goal is to find that and to make students realize that they have the potential to progress quickly and effectively with the right mindset.

    Franklin has been an excellent math tutor for my three daughters. From 4th grade math to Algebra 2, he has been extremely helpful in helping my daughters solidify their understanding of topics they are currently studying in school as well as teaching new topics to help them be prepared for what lies ahead. He is a strong and clear communicator, supportive, and encouraging. He is responsive to questions from both me and my daughters. He is an asset to our daughters' math education and we feel fortunate to be working with him. He easily earned our 5 star review!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Typically, I try to gauge my student's abilities by asking them questions to see if they have a grasp on what their task is. Overtime, I create a report of list of characteristics that the student has that needs to be addressed and slowly go over it as time progresses. Assignments are done efficiently and with great emphasis on being remembered in the future. We get through all the assignments for the day and then plan for the coming weeks. We also discuss areas of improvement and have a discussion of ways to better combat bad teachers at school.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated from a highly rigorous High School with workload that was challenging for most students. I also worked part-time. This experience has made me highly skilled with time management and getting the job done.

As far as educatation and training, I have taken many advanced courses and am currently pursing a computer science and business degree.

I take great pride of my leadership capabilities and influence and instill that with the students that I work with.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My pricing for lessons are flexible. Ideally, I like to maintain an average of $40 per lesson. I am sure that work can be done to make sure I am fairly compensated.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in high school my Sophomore year when I was encouraged to take time to tutor students in my class in math, science, and history. I always excelled and found joy in it so eventually I started teaching at the library. I found parents who had deep concern with their children not being able to advance to the next grade. I decided to put my skills to the test and from there one parent referred me to another, so on and so forth. It has been absolutely amazing. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with middle school to high school students covering all subjects under the standard curriculum as well as the catholic school curriculum.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am fond of every moment when my student can synthesize two topics and apply them to other subjects and scenarios. For me, it shows greater understanding and learning development when a student can actually apply their knowledge out of the classroom. Of course, getting great grades is a priority, but obtaining knowledge should be a fun subject and an enriching activity.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

My advice, pick a teacher that you can relate to, gets improvement, and has fun doing it. 

I love learning and I love teaching. My students know that and over time, that love and passion for both becomes infectious and opens up new perspectives for students to look at.

Look for a teacher that is also very understanding and willing to give their time for their student, even after hours. Time is such a precious resource and when a teacher/tutor gives it to a student, it shows how much they are invested in their future and their success. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I would advise students to think about their weaknesses and strengths. The first step is to always identify what the issue is. Ask and an answer will be given.
