About Mark


Bio

I have been a professional educator and tutor for the past 15 years. Originally, I began by teaching SAT English and Math for the Princeton Review after graduating from George Washington in 1996 and started teaching high school English full-time in 2000 after receiving my Masters Degree in English Education from Vanderbilt University.

I have been a professional educator and tutor for the past 15 years. Originally, I began by teaching SAT English and Math for the Princeton Review after graduating from George Washington in 1996 and started teaching high school English full-time in 2000 after receiving my Masters Degree in English Education from Vanderbilt University. My length and range of teaching experiences have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in both subject assimilation and standardized testing instruction. I feel extremely confident in my ability to help students feel more adept with both the content of and strategic approach to standardized tests. While the majority of my instruction has been focused on the SAT/ACT and GRE, I do have experience helping with the LSAT/SSAT and as of the last two years in particular, a much more consistent clientele of GMAT students. In addition, I have worked with over 300 students from various schools in the Miami area on writing their college essays and helping them with related components of the college application process.

I feel highly skilled in most core subject areas, particularly English but also Math up to pre-Calculus. My true loves are American Literature and any form of writing. Outside of academics, I am keenly fond of playing tennis, squash, golf, and travel.

As a longtime English teacher and master of rhetorical strategies, I understand the nuances and difficulties associated with public speaking. This is an art, not a science, but with practice and a deeper understanding of the communications process, one can become a much more proficient public speaker. I strongly believe that a speaking coach can help alleviate a student's fears, reinforce their strengths and show them the path to successful public speaking.

Mark was very patient .

Mark was very knowledgeable and helpful during my GRE lesson. I feel more committed in the areas I need to study. He was also very patient. It has been many years since I went over this type of material .

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Mark did an excellent job tutoring my children for the upcoming HSPT. He was patient and more than willing to help them answer any question they were confused about.

Norma , 3 lessons with Mark

Super Helpful Tutor

Mark is extremely helpful in explaining what the problem is asking for, how and why the answer to a problem is correct. As well as, he provides helpful tips on how to approach certain problems.

Hannah, 4 lessons with Mark

Great GRE tutor.

If you are a college graduate looking to prepare for the GRE, I highly recommend Mark. His methods and knowledge on standardized testing are exceptional. He will help you with any letters you might need to prepare for grad school. You can either pay for a test prep class and sit in a class room, or take one-on-one lessons at a time and place of your convenience, with a tutor who will get to know you well enough to identify areas of opportunity for improvement.
