Very impressed with the help Mark provided to my children. Showed up on time, was enthusiastic during training sessions, kept interest going, and was involved in making them successful.
Mark K. has an extensive background in public speaking and offered me a lot of tips. I needed help and encouragement to give some speeches at a wedding, and Mark K. provided both. He gave me some good ideas on how to stay calm as well. My speeches had to have a mixture of humor and warmth and Mark K. offered a lot of good advice in these areas. I would recommend Mark K. to anyone needed help with a presentation or public speech.
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.
