About Mark

Forty years of teaching Mathematics in High Schools, public and private, foreign and domestic, traditional and alternative, magnet and remedial, have provided me with many experiences to learn three basic principles for teaching and tutoring.

The first is that the primary information that a teacher needs to know is what it is that the learner needs to learn. The second is that every lesson must be a success for the student. And the third is that the lesson must start at the level of the student's knowledge/ability.

The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing has granted a single subject credential in Mathematics. I also have a certificate for Specially Designed Instruction in English. I am certified as a Highly Qualified Teacher of Mathematics under the provision of No Child Left Behind.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Extremely thorough and patient!

Mark did a great job tutoring our son with pre-calculus. He made sure that he understood the concepts behind the questions (not just how to solve the problems) and he moved at the perfect pace.
