About Mark

Hello!

My name is Mark and I love the English language. I love to read it, speak it, and teach it. My goal is to teach and inspire my students in the read, written, and spoken English language. If I can accomplish this goal for any student, my goal would be accomplished.

Do I have teaching credentials? I do not, however, this does not dampen my desire to teach, nor does it diminish my ability to tutor those who are having difficulty with the English language.

While I have no teaching credentials, I have been in many tutoring situations. I was in a Customer Service role for years, in different companies. As such, I continually trained new employees. In my last position, an unofficial job role was to proofread documents prepared by our CEO, at his personal request. Also, in my non-professional, casual reading, I have found grammatical errors in published books.

English is tough. I understand that. However, I was born and raised in the United States and have a comprehensive knowledge of our language and am excited to impart that knowledge to all who are willing to hire me.

I have studied at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California as well as California State University in Northridge, California.

Thanks for reading!

Mark W.

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.

Drums

I have been a professional drummer for over 30 years. I have recorded several albums and have toured the world with various bands. I still play often with various bands.

Proofreading

I read constantly; everything from books to blogs. As I read, I am on the lookout for errors and I find them from time to time. I was even hired to proofread a novel, even though it was not a part of my everyday job.
