I absolutely could not stand the Science or Math sections of the ACT when I was working on them on my own. My scores were great in English and Reading, but Science and Math were weighing me down to the point that I considered just taking the SAT instead. That all changed when I met Professor Mark. It was like he gave me a Rosetta Stone that unlocked ACT Science and broke it down into its most simple components. I realized that I had been studying for it all wrong; valuing quantity over quality. As a very right-brained high schooler, I never thought that I could possibly do so well on the Math and Science sections of the ACT, 33 and 36 respectively, but that's the beauty of the way Professor Mark teaches; he takes your mental weaknesses and translates them into your areas of strength. It's not just that he's intelligent, a lot of people are intelligent, but he works to understand the way you think and instructs you from a standpoint of familiarity with this new found knowledge. As someone who has tried both of these other options, I can say that he is eons better than the Kaplan class and the Princeton Review class. Simply put, there is not a better ACT resource out there than Professor Mark!
Mark has met several times with both my sons during this Fall semester. He helped them with AP Chem and Algebra 2. Both boys brought their semester grade up. He helped them with understanding the concepts better and organizing their work. We will definitely schedule more sessions in the future.
Mark is a gem of a tutor. He is invested in his students and that translates into success. Under his instruction, our son's ACT in math jumped 5 points. Mark is very professional and keys into the learning style of the student to get results.
Mark has been a great tutor for preparing my daughter for her ACT exam. He got right to the point in finding where she needed the most help to boost her scores. He has given her test taking strategies as well as review in all subject areas. He helps her stay focused and utilizes the full amount of time in each session. He is friendly and quick to respond to email requests. My only regret is that we didn't find him sooner. I would highly recommend his services to anyone interested in raising their ACT scores! Update 10/9/2013: Mark helped my daughter raise her ACT score from a 29 to a 31 in just 7 sessions over the course of 2.5 weeks! We are very pleased with the results and will definitely contact him again to help our younger daughter's studies.
My high achieving A student had struggled in Algebra I for the first 3 quarters last year - each grade worse than the previous. After numerous conferences with his teacher and spending additional time with him at home with no results - we were at our wits end. Enter Mark, who quickly accessed where my son was and knew exactly where he had to go in order to achieve the results we all wanted. Within 2-3 lessons, my son's confidence started to return, quiz and test scores began to climb and after 6 lessons in 6 weeks, his grade went from a low C in the third quarter to an A his last quarter! We were SO happy and grateful to have found Mark. He gave us our son back and his regained confidence was reflected in ALL of his classes! Mark is truly a gifted teacher and an amazing individual whom we are proud to refer to others!
Mark can be considered on the best tutors I have come across. After using two separate tutors for my son, and with little success, I was somewhat skeptical whether there is a tutor who can bring some old fashion "get down to the detail" focus that was required. Mark has changed my perspective and brings a robust process to help students to succeed. Mark spent the first session with my son and was able to quickly motivate him to excel and stay focused. After every session, Mark was able to instill self belief and highlight his weakness on the ACT areas. Correcting them and showing him short cuts is the magic sauce that was needed to help my son enhance his ACT score. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark to anyone who is motivated to succeed. He will definitely show you ways to improve not only your score but give you the self belief. I will be recommending him to many of my friends Well done Mark!
My child's ACT science score jumped 10 points! Mark is prompt, patient, and professional. He was very accommodating with our hectic schedule. Very pleased with his services.
I learned more from Mark in 5 sessions than I did in an entire semester from my in class teacher. In just a couple of weeks, my test grades increased from 40's and 50's to high 70's and low 80's. He was extremely accommodating and flexible when it came to meeting times and places. He was patient and thorough in his teaching methods. I felt comfortable asking questions or asking him to repeat a previously covered concept. I would recommend Mark to anyone who is looking for extra help. He is an amazing teacher and an awesome person.
Mark knows the material very well and was a huge help. He made the information easy to understand. I definitely recommend him to anyone needing help in physics.
I just completed a summer course in calculus based physics and needed some help towards the end of the semester. When I tried the tutoring services offered at school out of all the math/science tutors there nobody could help me with the subject material. I contacted Prof Mark and met him at the local library for a couple of sessions. First of all I would say that it was apparent to me that Prof Mark had an in-depth knowledge of the subject material I was studying which made it easy for him to explain the concepts to me. He did not just show me how to do the problems but approached problems in a manner for me to really understand the principles and integrate the information in a way that really enhanced my understanding therefore greatly increasing my confidence. Throughout my sessions I could see that Prof Mark has a high level of integrity and really enjoys helping people. I had a positive experience and would recommend Prof Mark to friends.
