Mark is punctual, patient, knowledgeable and truly cares about my son's understanding of the subject. Mark builds confidence and self-esteem with his calm and reassuring manner. After six weeks, my son's grade in math went from 57 to 78. He is so proud of himself and finally believes he can do it thanks to Mark.

He is very patient and he is flexible with hours and days he can tutor you. He is helpful and a great tutor! I could not have passed my entrance exam for hygienist school without him!
Mark replied on 2/22/2014:
Alexandra, thank you for your comments. They are greatly appreciated. Congratulations on passing the test. Good luck in hygienist school!
"Excellent algebra tutor"
Mary from Central Islip, NY on 1/5/14
As a returning student it is very important for me to have a strong basic math foundation for Algebra: Mark M. is an excellent teacher, taking the time to explain every math question in a language I could understand. I am now confident that with Mark as a tutor I will get an A in algebra.
Dawne from Ronkonkoma, NY on 10/23/13
My son can not stop raving about how Mark was able to get him to understand the topic in just 45 minutes. My son states that it is the first time that he feels prepared for a math quiz, thanks to Mark and his great teaching strategies. My son who is not very confident in math, is actually looking forward to his next lesson with Mark. I think that speaks volumes about his patience and his ability as a tutor.

After the session, my son has a better understanding of proofs. Mark was very thorough and explained the material. We will definitely use mark again.

Mark really helped my son to work through his weak sticking points in his Geometry course work. He is patient and has great style of tutoring that should be commended. Thank you Mark for being kind and reliable!
Nicole from Farmingville, NY on 6/27/13
Turned out that Calc 2 was not only hard for me but difficult for my tutor as well. Luckily, with some hard work and persistence, we were able to work through my problems and helped me get a great grade in the course!
Mark replied on 6/28/2013:
The course was "difficult for my tutor" only because some of the problems were what I would call unusual applications (i.e., applications not discussed in a typical Calculus course). The course (offered by the University of Massachusetts) was taught in a nontraditional format using the Hughes/Hallett reform Calculus materials.
Nevertheless, as Nicole L. says in her comment, we were able to decipher all of the problems and obtain the correct answers.
"Speaks my son's language"
Shannon from Bellport, NY on 4/4/13
Mark has been tutoring my son once a week for approximately 3 months now. My son understands what Mark is teaching and likes him in general. My son's overall trig/algebra2 grade is increasing. His grade was in the 70's and is now in the 80's. Mark has been very easy to work with from my perspective as well. He has been very reliable and I feel good about turning my son over to him for the lesson. Mark has given me one less thing to worry about. I highly recommend him!
Diane from Smithtown, NY on 4/4/13
Since my daughter has been working with Mark her math grades have been excellent and her confidence is back. Thank you so much
Tara from Islip, NY on 3/18/13
Mr. M. and my son are able to communicate and reach an understanding on the subject. His grades have increased dramatically. Enough said.
"Excellent Tutor/Very Patient"
Aqueelah from Bay Shore, NY on 9/30/12
During our first tutoring session Mark M. was very patient with me. On our first day I was unable to access my online course because the publishers changed the design of the website and I needed to install a new browser. Mark M. even tried helping me with the browser installation. Mark M. looked at my syllabus and was able to come up with and review math problems based on the syllabus. To me that says a lot. I look forward to all that I will learn during my next session with Mark M. he is a great tutor.
Aniko from Saint James, NY on 7/23/12
Mark has been my daughter's math tutor (algebra 2 and introduction to Trigonometry) for the past few months and we are very happy with him. He is kind, patient, knowledgeable and also a wonderful teacher. He is reliable, helpful and accommodating. I wish we had met him earlier in the school year; would have saved us a lot of headache and stress. My daughter has become more comfortable with the understanding of the subject and her test grades have improved. Mark took the role as her real math teacher and as a result we had a successful year.
"Very knowledgeable and patient tutor"
Milena from Ronkonkoma, NY on 7/8/12
Mark M. is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. He has been tutoring our son in Geometry throughout the whole school year, and we have been very happy with him. Our son was able to understand the concepts of Geometry and his problem solving skills improved significantly. Mark M. is also a very reliable, punctual and caring tutor.
Julia from Huntington Station, NY on 4/9/12
Mark is very good at going through the details step by step, which is really important for advanced math. He writes the problems out for me to use as a study aid. He is very good at explaining when I don't quite understand a problem; he can explain it in a different way than my professor so I get it. He's also good at reminding me how much I should be studying and helping me figure out what and how to study for a test. Since he used to teach, he has some insight on how a teacher might think and helps me focus on the important problems when it's time to do that last minute cramming for a test.
