About Marc

I’m a recently retired science teacher with a sixth year degree in education and 37 years of experience teaching Chemistry and Physical/General Science. 33 of those years at North Haven High School. At present I am an adjunct professor teaching Chemistry labs at both Southern Connecticut State University and University of New Haven. All those years spent in the classroom mean two very important things for you and your child: I love teaching and I do it well. It’s a great source of satisfaction to work with students and help them understand the concepts and acquire the skills that will help them succeed in science.

Good tutoring is more than just helping a student with homework and study skills – it is listening to the student and helping him or her understand where and why the student is having trouble. Once the sticking point has been identified, I work together with your child to help them get beyond it. I do this by presenting alternate ways of thinking about the topic or concept or skill. For example, much of chemistry requires the application of mathematical ratios to a problem, so I work with my students on ways to determine which pieces of information are important, how they are related to each other, and how these relationships are expressed as ratios.

A typical tutoring session starts with reviewing your child’s recent class notes. This shows me where the class is now and where it’s headed next – directing me to the concepts and skills that need to be reviewed and reinforced. I also look over any past tests or quizzes with your child to see what needs to be addressed. This, along with any questions your child may have, sets the goals for the session.

At the end of each session I’ll spend a few minutes with you and your child going over what we worked on and giving suggestions for enrichment exercises. It’s important to me that both you and your child are comfortable with their progress and can see growth coming out of the session.

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.

Chemistry

I have 38 years experience as a High School Science teacher. For the last 4 years, since retiring from teaching high school I have been an adjunct chemistry professor at both Southern Connecticut State University and University of New Haven.

Great tutor!!

I have nothing but positive things to say about Marc. He was very patient and thorough during our sessions. He took the time to explain things in depth, using illustrations to help me understand. He brought a lot of material for us to reference as well regarding the subject I was working on. He was always very prompt for the appointments we had scheduled. I would highly recommend him!!
