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.

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.

Great Tutor — We are on our third session, and Mark is a great tutor. He is patient and he explains and teaches the concepts in a way that is easy for my son to understand. He gave an assignment for my son to teach me how to do a problem that they covered in a session.
