Hi,

My name is Mark. I am a teacher of Mathematics and Physics and a recently retired Earth Scientist from the NASA - Goddard Space Flight Center. I have SB and PhD degrees in Mathematics from MIT and Cornell. I would like to share my knowledge and understanding of Mathematics, Physics, Earth Science, and Computers with the next generation of students and professionals. I have over 550 hours of tutoring experience in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Technical Writing, SATs/ACTs and related areas.

I am here to help you! I am here to help you master the powerful mathematical and scientific tools that will support your education and your career. I am here to present a broader, gentler picture of math and science and to demonstrate to you the enormous scope, power, and benefits of these subjects for almost any endeavor.

I am here to teach you to use your natural intuition and creativity to understand and solve problems in these subjects and in life in general. I am here to show you how to break problems down into small, manageable steps and to build up your self-confidence in applying the natural mathematical talent that you and everyone else is born with.

I have taught classes at Cornell University, the State University of New York, New York University, Columbia University, the University of Maryland, and at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia.

Please let me know how I can help you.

I can't express enough praise for Dr. H! A true expert in his field, very passionate about his subject as well as warm and patient person. He has an amazing ability to explain the most difficult concepts and make it very accessible. My son has a great admiration and respect for Dr. H. After only a couple tutoring sessions with Dr. H I noticed a big improvement in my sons grades. Now he aces every test. Dr. H is a very inspiring and motivating teacher, I see a drastic improvement in my son's working habits in general.

Mark tutored my son in Calculus for a quarter. Only wish I had found him sooner. Very easy to interact with as a parent and student. Always encouraging of my son and gave him the confidence to do well and improve his grade. Extremely reliable in terms of promptness and preparation. Flexible when we asked him to be. You'll be happy if you give Mark a whirl. We recommend him highly.

Mark has been tutoring my son in Calculus and Physics II. He is very patient and inspiring. Mark has been able to focus on my son's strengths and opportunities for improvement and encourage him to improve in the areas that need help. My son, an 11th grader, is much more confident about math and science and always welcomes his time with Mark.

Mark has encouraged my so much that he actually spent several hours on extra credit physics problems and then helped a 12th grader with her homework. He did all of this with a smile on his face.

I highly recommend Mark.

Mark has years of experience in the Physics and Math fields. He makes formulas very understandable. My daughter was able to recall formulas that she learned three years ago with Marks help. Thanks Mark I know with your help she will do well on her SAT subject exams.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
