About Marcus

Hello!

I am a recent recipient of dual Masters in Education and Special Education from Lesley University. I earned my masters while working full time, so I understand the value of time management and try to be as flexible as possible with my students. I bring eight eight years of tutoring experience to guarantee your student's success. I have tutored students ranging from elementary schoolers with basic reading skills to college students with 19th century European history to success. My passion is to increase understanding in my students.

I graduated in May of 2011 from the University of North Carolina-Asheville with a Bachelors of Arts in History and Political Science. At UNC-Asheville I had been a tutor to my fellow students and, in cooperation with a local non-profit, had been an after school tutor in a nearby public housing community. I currently am a teacher in Baltimore City and have been for the last three years.


My collegiate credentials include:
A year of full German curriculum at University Trier in Western Germany
6x Semesters of Dean's List
University Scholar Honor
Undergraduate Research Scholar
Distinction in History

I hope to be your tutor soon!
