"Outstanding Teacher, Tutor, and Friend"
Daniel from New Canaan, CT on 11/15/13
When I decided to undertake the GRE exam, I knew that doing practice problems on my own was not going to prepare me for everything the test could throw at me. Truth is, I always believed that I was poor at math and better at English. During my first session with Marc, he debunked my theory. Learning math by using his methods and materials was not only remarkably effective, but, for the first time in my life, it was actually fun! The atmosphere during each session was calm and inviting, which allowed for learning and individual growth. I say this because, despite meeting with a tutor solely for GRE preparation, Marc went beyond merely teaching; he inspired me and inculcated confidence in me. Confidence that took my GRE scores up 20 points in quantitative AND verbal! (on the new 130-170 scale)
When I originally saw Marc's name on WyzAnt, I was intrigued. How could he have a perfect 5 star rating? Especially considering the plethora of topics that he teaches! After being tutored by Marc 3+ times per week for 3 months, I can say without a doubt that Marc deserves those 5 stars, even more than that! He is very flexible and accommodating, so look no further! Marc is your man!
Marc is one of the most intelligent and amicable individuals I have ever had the privilege of meeting. His hospitality, knowledge, and passion for his work have all left a lasting impression on me. One that I will remember as I head on to graduate school and beyond. Thank you, Marc, for everything you taught and showed me.

Thus far, the experience with WyzAnt and Charlie's tutor Marcus G. has been excellent. They seem to have a great rapport and Marc keeps us apprised of Charlie's progress and needs. We took advantage of your pre-pay plan once Marcus laid out a course of study. So far, so good!

Marcus is very knowledgeable and prepare before classes. I have both of my kids with him in Maths and Physics. My kids gain more their confidences in the subjects. My kids do not scare of Maths. Plus, he is very patient and positive. My kids enjoy learning from him. Thanks.
"Patient, focused, flexible"

Marc worked with our daughter on the ACT. He was consistent, easy to reach, and always had a plan of what to work on with her. It worked well for us and gave our daughter confidence and peace of mind that she was very well prepared for the test.

Marcus is a brilliant tutor. His knowledge runs deep and wide. He is very dedicated to academics and helping young students achieve their academic goals. We feel very lucky to have found Marcus and highly recommend him to others!
"A tutor who not only teaches but also inspires"
Lakshmi from Westport, CT on 3/27/13
I needed a Physics tutor who would go beyond teaching to a test or from a text book. Marcus is that person who brings to the table not only his experience and passion for the subject but also an intellectual curiosity which encourages a deeper understanding and conceptualization in the student. He has been remarkably flexible with his schedule to accommodate my son's. He went above and beyond to familiarize himself with the weekly course content so that each session was tailor made and individualized for my son. If you are looking for someone who is smart and savvy, patient and persevering, to teach your child, then you will not go wrong with Marc.

Marcus's knowledge and teaching methodology has greatly aided my daughter in the pursuit of mastering Algebra 1 in middle school. Under his tutelage, she has gained a significant degree of confidence and has seen much improved testing scores in class. He is spoken about so highly in the household by my middle school daughter - now my high schooler wants to use his services. With that being said there is no greater recommendation.
"Works great with kids!"
Diana from New Canaan, CT on 3/20/13
Our experience with Marc G. has been really great. Marc has been helping my daughter prepare for her ACT exam for the last few months. He is incredibly knowledgeable and has a great rapport with kids. I have also been pleased with the material he has covered with my daughter and feel like it will really help her prepared to take her ACT test. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in a great tutor!!
"Very good and very patient!"
Andrew from Inman, SC on 3/19/13
Marc is a very good and very patient tutor. For my intermediate algebra class he has been very helpful at reviewing the basics in a non-judgmental and patient way. I have learning disabilities and have been away from math for many years. It is very difficult for me, but Marc helps me to stay focused and on track in this class. For my business law class, Marc has been very good at helping me to understand the small but important differences in legal terms, and in explaining, in layman terms, what the textbook says. We've had great discussions that really help me to understand the legal system in the US.
"Excellent tutor, very enthusiastic."
Candice from Darien, CT on 3/16/13
We tried other tutoring agencies before, but my son did not get much out of them. Marcus is excellent- very enthusiastic. Not only did he help my son with areas of math that were weaker, but he also increased my son's overall interest in math.
My son actually enjoys going to the lessons instead of having to push him to go like I did with the other lessons.
My son's feedback was that Marcus provided concrete information and tips to help him increase his grade so the lesson was more than just going over problems and getting the solution.
"Excellent teacher with a wealth of knowledge and experience"
Doug from Bridgeport, CT on 1/17/13
Marcus is a wonderful teacher. He listened to my strengths and weakness on the GMAT and focused our lesson on the areas I need to improve on. He brings a wealth of knowledge and personal experience with the GMAT so he has many helpful tricks and insights that will help improve GMAT scores. Overall, he was very helpful and after only 1 session I feel that his help and guidance will increase my scores dramatically and I plan on working with him until my test.
"Best Physics Tutor - Instantly Ready"
Raghu from Darien, CT on 1/16/13
Marcus is one of the best Physics resources, though he is equally good in other areas too. The unique expertise he brings into the tutoring session is, he’s instantly ready to work with the student and jump start the session on the topic of interest.
My daughter was nervous about specific areas in her AP Physics and he provided her the confidence and taught her the best way to handle problems. He engages the student in such a way, they start liking the challenging problems and resolving it.
Apart from the tutoring sessions, he offers help whenever it is needed and is very much reachable to the student for any doubts and clarifications. He brings in the sophistication to the tutoring matching up the interest of the student and can guide any problems the student may come across with a remote session via his iPad. In-depth teaching with modern methods is Marcus's specialty.
I would gladly recommend Marcus with confidence to anyone who feels challenged with their subject.
