Frank Dai graduated from UC Berkeley with degrees in Mathematics and Information Science. Passionate about math, he was introduced to the nuances of teaching it while working for Classroom Matters in Berkeley. After 15 years of working with students of all ages, is now extremely comfortable teaching math of all levels (elementary to high school), and the SAT/ACT tests. He enjoys teaching both foundation and esoteric math through simplification and analogies to the real-world.
Frank has worked extensively with young people as a teacher, mentor, and tutor. He believes in helping students build strong fundamental skills, developing students’ confidence in their abilities to learn, and incorporating games into tutoring sessions when and wherever possible. Frank really enjoys getting to know students individually and strives to tailor learning to each student’s unique strengths and needs.
Frank always improves and sharps students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills in mathematics from grades 3 to 12, including IB Math. He devises content plans that integrate the math program and strategies, and provides exercises accordingly to major topics of study and teach in an easily understandable manner how to approach and solve.
