Hi prospective students,

My name is Mark. I love to teach, I am very patient, I listen to my students, and my goal is for each and every one of my students to get success in their respective subjects. It would be my dream to teach full-time, but I have chosen the full-time career path of a physicist. Tutoring allows me to get in touch with my passion for teaching and helping students attain success!

I have an extensive background teaching and tutoring Math, Physics and Computer Science. Besides these subjects, I have helped several people study for the major standardized tests including the SAT, ACT, GRE, and ASVAB.

What makes me qualified to be the best tutor for you?

I have programmed in C since 1997. I eventually transitioned to a C++ programmer in the last 12 years, but C++ subsumes C. If one is a proficient C++ programmer, then one can definitely do C. This is how I am with C++ and C.


I have programmed in C++ both in school and professionally since the year 2000. My Master's thesis in Physics was based on a C++ program used to perform Green Function Monte Carlo on a quantum fluid. My current Ph.D. Physics research is also based on an objected-oriented C++ program that I created with a carefully crafted object-oriented design using classes, inheritance, and polymorphism. I am definitely proficient in programming in C++.

Computer Programming

I have programmed in C and C++ professionally and as a student for the last 12 years. I am a computational and theoretical physicist, so most of my research deals with applying theory in the form of computational models which I do in the form of object-oriented C++ codes using XML input files and Boost mathematical libraries. I am very knowledgeable about C, C++ and computer programming in general and would love to tutor these subjects as well. Plus I am already approved on this system to tutor C and C++. I can likewise tutor general computer programming.

Differential Equations

I am a professional theoretical physicist. Physics is full of differential equations: Newton's Second Law, Maxwell's Equations of Electromagnetic Theory, Legendre's differential equation, Bessel's differential equation, Laplace's equation, the wave equation, Schrodinger's equation in Quantum Mechanics, etc. I am very proficient in using and solving differential equations. Furthermore, I have taken Differential Equations in my undergraduate education and received an A grade in the course.

Linear Algebra

I am a professional theoretical physicist who deals with Linear Algebra throughout Physics, including performing coordinate transformations, using and manipulating vectors, manipulating and using matrices and tensors, and using eigenvalues. I also completed a course on Linear Algebra as an Undergraduate and received an A. Furthermore, in the past I taught Linear Algebra.


I have been an avid user of Mathematica since about 1993 both academically and professionally. I have used Mathematica to perform calculus, algebra, linear algebra, and physics. I have also programmed in the Mathematica programming language. I would consider myself an expert in Mathematica.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis and I have professionally worked in Mechanical Engineering problems for 6+ years in my career.


I am currently a 1 1/2 years away from getting my Ph.D. in Physics, which I am working on on a part-time basis. I am already employed professionally as a theoretical physicist with a major defense contractor. I have a B.S. in Physics, a B.A. in Mathematics, a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and an M.S. in Physics.

Dedicated Tutor! I worked with Mark a couple of weeks before my second SAT and ACT to help boost my math scores. He was a great tutor to work with! Mark taught me many strategies to quickly go through the more challenging math questions, and explained it to me in a way that helped me understand better. I felt more confident going into my SAT, and approached problems that I would have skipped before. Mark is very ...
