About: Hi, I'm River, a retired teacher and full-time tutor / learning pod facilitator. I specialize in AP/honors/TJ Physics, and in Algebra 2, Precalculus, and AP Calculus. I am also comfortable teaching Physical Science, Algebra 1, Geometry, and US Government/Civics. I can provide extra help to a student or students taking a course at school or online, or directly teach the content to a student or students who are homeschooling this year. I can work with individual students or small groups. I have bachelors degrees in physics and computer science from the University of Delaware, and a law degree from the University of Virginia. My preferred pronouns are they/them. Because I believe that tutoring works best when there is a personal connection between tutor and student, I offer the first lesson with a new student for free, to see if I am a good fit for the student. My standard rate is $50 per hour for online lessons. Given the pandemic, I am offering two options: (1) Online lessons - video chat or phone call, plus a shared white board from awwapp.com. I am set up with a tablet and stylus so I can easily write on my screen and have it show up on the student's screen. (2) Outdoor lessons - with masks and some distancing. I am set up with a portable white board to facilitate this. We can meet on a front lawn or at a local park or something. Background check, resume, and references available upon request. Here's reviews from some of my students: "Flexible, kind and great at teaching! I was very behind in Physics and with very little stress or concern, Frank helped me get back to understanding it all. He was always extremely flexible with me, and helped me manage my time to get to the best possible result. Now I am doing great in physics, and I owe it to him!" - Molly, 6 lessons with Frank "Flexible, kind and great at teaching!

My daughter likes his teaching and feels confident when taking exams and tests at school. His favorite subjects are Calculus (AB and BC calculus) and also AP-physics. He teaches high school math and physics as his full time job. So he stays connected with the subjects in more ways than one. He taught her AP-CS and she ended up with good grades in that as well. I would recommend River to anyone in High school taking AP-Calculus courses or AP-Physics or AP-Computer Science" - Soumya, 43 lessons with River "Great tutor My daughter loves River. She was very hesitant about getting a tutor but now loves him. She improve her grade with just one lesson with River. He is very patient and knows how to explain to her in way that she understands." - Jacqueline, 16 lessons with River
