About Marc

I taught all grades K thru 12 and all subjects for 7 years as a substitute teacher in the Montebello Unified School District. I also taught Theater in a program for At-Risk Children in East Los Angeles for nearly 3 years. I am an ivy league graduate with a dual major in English & American Literature and Theater Arts & Dramatic Literature. As a premed I have the equivalent of a B.A. in Biology from UCLA and nearly enough credits for degrees in Chemistry and Physics as well and graduated with a 4.00 GPA. I graduated Valedictorian from High School and hold Film Certification in Directing from UCLA, and have studied and performed as an actor in London, New York and Los Angeles. I also hold a Master's Degree in Information Technology from American Intercontinental University. I am versed in a variety of teaching techniques and learning modalities.

All classes are taught one-on-one, and parents are always welcome and encouraged to attend. In order to book more students, classes are taught at my residence and parents are responsible for drop off and pick up. All payments are due in advance. Cash Only.

Aside from my undergraduate degrees being in English & American Literature from Brown University, I am also a writer. I have written plays for many years and am working on my third novel. I also write poetry and have been responsible for company correspondence as a Manager and as a Director of Development.

I supervised Proofreading Departments for law firms as well as Word Processing Departments and Secretarial pools.

I also teach all levels of Math, and as a Premed I was always first in my class (in all subjects).

I work by developing rapport with my students and by understanding their strengths and weaknesses. I promote confidence through positive reinforcement while holding the student accountable to grade level standards.

Bookings are limited and are set on a first-come, first served basis. I am available online ONLY Monday through Friday from Noon until 7:00 p.m. PST. I prefer to take on students on an on-going basis over the course of an academic year.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
