About Mark

I would like to have the opportunity to tutor individuals where I am able to utilize my over 15 years of experience in teaching/guiding students in subjects like math, science, and computer programming. I have excellent communication, inter-personal, problem-solving and analytical skills and have the ability to teach students in an interesting/innovative manner.

My method:
1. Instruct students in achieving a better understanding of specific subject material and in improving academic capabilities in designated areas.

2.Maintain records of progress on each student who is being tutored, including follow-up and periodic assessments.

3. Help students develop self-confidence, raise self-concept, and reduce anxiety or fear of failure in academic work.

I desire to see students be successful while promoting life long learning.
