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.

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

Easy to talk to and great at interpreting questions

Able to find the answers to the questions asked, and not only answer them, but answer them in a way that a student that is somewhat under-educated in the topic is able to comprehend. He was great and flexible and was able to travel close to me!

Kim, 2 lessons with Mark

Excellent! More than I could ever ask for!

I didn't know what to expect since this is my first time ever getting a tutor but choosing Mark was one of the best decisions I've ever made! He explains every concept so clearly and is an excellent motivator. Thanks to him my math grade and confidence has gone up significantly and now I'm not so fearful for the math portion of the SAT!

Bailey, 10 lessons with Mark

Great tutor, great person!

Mark was exactly what my son needed. I just wish I hadn't second guessed getting him connected sooner. He gave my son a great deal of confidence and really knew how to connect on his level. Thank you Mark!

Nicole, 4 lessons with Mark

Knowledgeable and Patient

Mark is very knowledgeable and patient in his approach to tutoring. I am studying for the math GED exam and he has been very helpful in explaining basic principles, including how to set up and work out the solution to a problem presented in a narrative format. I highly recommend him.

Ed, 4 lessons with Mark

A great tutor

Mark M. was a great tutor. Mark was knowledgeable about math, statistics, and understands application scenarios. Mark helped me with a statistics class. He was patient, explained the information so that I could understand the questions, and periodically asked me questions to ensure I understood the material. Mark was on time to our tutoring sessions and communicated in a timely manner. Thanks for your assistance, Mark.

An Excellent Tutor

Mark is a very patient, competent and compassionate tutor toward his students. He provided timely and complete answers to all my questions. I would recommend him to all my friends and colleagues with any hesitation. Keep the great work Mark.

Kamal, 2 lessons with Mark

Money well spent!

Mark was very relatable and easy going. He displayed a dogged determination to answer all of my questions, and made it clear that he wasn't satisfied until I understood the subject matter. It's obvious that he truly enjoys teaching others.

Chris, 2 lessons with Mark

Very Smart

I highly recommend Mark as a tutor. I used him for his skills in statistics and he was great. I needed some help brainstorming for ideas for my final project. I used his ideas and he helped me develop the equations and commentary required to explain my project. He saved me a lot of time.

Great Motivator

Mark M. is a fantastic motivator. Not only did he calmly help my child understand the material but he inspired him to achieve as well. I saw incredible results in both his grades and his attitude. I can not say enough good about Mark's influence on my Son. I highly recommend Mark to anyone who wants to see real results.
