About Mark

Hello,

I'd like to provide some information about me. I've played/and instructed tennis since I was 16. I also played/competed in tennis during college.

I've taught 4th/5th grade for 20 years now. In 2003 I was blessed to win the 'Teachers First' award from Channel 5. This was an award that I was nominated for that I wasn't even aware of. I have received my Master's Degree in GT from U.C.C.S.! I have also tutored students from the 2nd grade level up to the 7th grade level and have enjoyed every minute of that too!!!

Overall, I feel very lucky to be an educator. My goal is to promote learning, and make sure each and every student/child knows that learning is fun with the understanding that it's needed to be successful in the future. I hope that you give me a chance to help your son/daughter in their education.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I've taught for 19 years. I have my Master's Degree from UCCS! I'm highly qualified/experienced in the amazing job of teaching and educating children!

Elementary Math

I have taught math for fifth grade for 21 years. I've also worked through middle school math too.

Grammar

I've worked in elementary education for 21 years. I've focused on numerous strategies/plans to assist students not only in their grammar, but to become better overall writers.

Reading

I have been an educator for 21 years. I've tutored/educated students ages kindergarten all the way to 7th grade in literacy/reading and writing. I've learned to incorporate many strategies in the area of literacy to help a student to the best of my ability.

Study Skills

I have taught for 20 years. Currently I teach fifth grade. If a student can't be organized academically, and socially their success in middle school will be rough. I feel I'm highly qualified to help your child!

Vocabulary

For 21 years I've studied/researched/worked with students of elementary age into middle school doing my best to assist students in the importance of vocabulary. Vocabulary is within all literacy areas, and needs to be taught, because without it their literacy ability won't increase. I feel my background can only help students in the right direction.

Writing

I love teaching writing. I've started the last two years with 'Writer's Workshop' and I and my students love it.
