My name is Mark. I am a teacher of Mathematics at Marymount University 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 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 now at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia.
