About Marcos


Bio

Greetings. I am a very experienced math teacher. I have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 & Geometry for 12 years in public schools, & 1 year of private. I have tutored privately for more than a decade. My students have typically expressed a great appreciation for my disposition, strategies & style. My biggest strength is my ability to explain concepts to students in steps & make those steps connect to other things. Because I am not a mathematician through schooling I recognize that students need...

Greetings. I am a very experienced math teacher. I have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 & Geometry for 12 years in public schools, & 1 year of private. I have tutored privately for more than a decade. My students have typically expressed a great appreciation for my disposition, strategies & style. My biggest strength is my ability to explain concepts to students in steps & make those steps connect to other things. Because I am not a mathematician through schooling I recognize that students need concepts broken down differently. Though I was a good student at good schools when I was younger, my math teachers didn't seem to care about making the math make sense for me. I work hard to make students experience with math not be so scary. I've been told I make it fun.

I enjoy the art of teaching, & take it seriously. My students' success is the most important thing, so I am not dominated by my ego. I excel at communicating. I do push students and require that they practice outside of our time together, but I do it with a smile and clear concise expectations & directions. I use tangible manipulatives and movement often. My Pre-Algebra students from last year are no doubt still singing my "order of operations rap". I am not afraid to help students in ways that are most comfortable to them. I bring a wealth of knowledge & methods that guarantee success as long as students are committed to excellence or at least getting their goals accomplished. I also bring kindness, consideration & an inspiring smile. Other gifts I bring to the table are study & note taking skills, time management activities, real world connections to the math concepts, organization & how to address issues with teachers. I have taught other subjects also, so I tie those into the lessons too. I have taught US history, African/African American History, Intro to Spanish, Health, Earth & Physical Science, Grammar, Vocabulary, English Lit/writing, Geography & Handwriting. I've taught grades 5-12, mostly concentrating on middle school. I have coached both sports & academic teams as well, & loved it.

I look forward to helping students bridge their math gaps & sending them on their way to Successville!

We need to clone this man!

Marcos is patient, kind, focused, and dedicated to improving the lives of the students he teaches. He is a gift.

Lonnie, 14 lessons with Marcos

Marcos is a very effective teacher

Marcos has a knack for explaining things. He has a mastery of math with an ability to teach in a patient, animated, and interesting way. He helped my 16 year old stay focused and he could quickly assess how to best connect to her learning style. He is also a pleasant person.
