About MARK

Through the years, I have had the privilege to teach hundreds of students at different grade levels. in 2015, I was named Most Inspirational Teacher and was one of the Honored teachers chosen to walk with the valedictorians and seniors at the end-of-year commencement ceremony. As a credentialed teacher, I look forward to using my knowledge and experience to teach and guide students. In addition to teaching, I am approved to tutor in American History, Reading, Literature, Vocabulary, and Writing. And recently I was approved for tutoring students in two more subjects: World History and Elementary Math.

Also, my educational background includes earning a bachelor degree in political science and a master of administration degree in business.

My wife and I have been happily married for 25 years and are blessed with two fine sons. The oldest son is a college graduate and working in northern California. The youngest son recently graduated from an Ivy League university. Both graduated with a double major in philosophy and economics.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

My bachelor degree is in Political Science from UC Riverside, so I have studied a good amount of history. In addition to being approved to tutor in American History, I am also approved to tutor in World History and Writing, among others.

Elementary Math

As well as teaching addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, I have taught place value, fractions, word problems, and geometric shapes. As you know, today in teaching math, the emphasis is not just on getting the correct answer, but on being able to show and explain the process and steps used to get the answer.

Reading

In addition to being a credentialed teacher, I am approved to tutor in reading, literature, vocabulary, and writing.

Writing

In my experience teaching the writing component of English language arts, I have modeled for students and encouraged them to explain "why" they take a position in an argument. Students are taught to write clearly and support and defend their stand with examples, evidence, and facts.
