About Mark

I am the author of two published books. One is presently under option to Leonardo Di Caprio's film company. Discovery Channel made me the subject of a documentary. I am former President of the New Orleans Commodity Exchange, Executive Vice President of an Investor magazine, and senior tutor and lecturer in Saigon. I have lectured at several universities including the European Business School, Insead Business School in France, been an early commentator in the 1960s on the fledgling Financial News Network, now CNBC. I believe my proprietary teaching techniques combine the best of TESOL and ESL and have produced excellent results in both verbal and where required, written skills for students whose primary language is other than English. I have tutored and lectured in Vietnam and in Thailand. Please see subjects I have qualified in with WyzAnt.

I served as a paratrooper in the French Foreign Legion from 1958-62 in Algeria, one of only two Americans serving in the First Regiment Parachutists. (1er REP).

I speak some French, have tri-nationality and have lived and worked all over the world.

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.

Business

I have served as President of the New Orleans Commodity Exchange and was required to give numerous speeches to groups ranging from twenty to five hundred attendees. I am the Author of The Fastest Game In Town: Commodities published by Prentice Hall. I am the Co-Author of Fiver, The Counterfeiting Crime of the Century published by The Viking Press and have done national book tours including radio and television interviews.
In the late 1960's and early 1970's I was a guest commentator on Institutional Investing on what is now CNBC. I served as Executive Vice President of the Institutional Investor Magazine. I have lectured at the International School Of Business ( INSEAD) in France and at
Oxford Polytech in Oxford UK on Credit Management.
During my forty year business career I have held senior management positions in MidCap companies both in the US and Abroad and currently serve on the Board of a US and a UK Public Company.

ESL/ESOL

ESOL/ESL in Asia and Europe. Writing. Published Author and lecturer. I have tutored more than thirty students primarily in Saigon and Bangkok but have had French, German and Italian native speakers.

Geography

I have traveled to over sixty countries on five continents and lived outside the United States for more than twenty five years. I am a collector of Cartography and collect European Maps and Pacific Islands from 1760-1925.

Government & Politics

I worked as a Legislative Assistant to the late New York State Assemblyman William F Passanante and interned with Mayor Koch in New York. I have 12 credit hours in Government and Politics and have travelled to almost sixty countries in the world having lived outside the United States for more than twenty five years. I have been Managing Director or Officer or Member of the Board of both a U.S. and UK Public Company.

Public Speaking

I have lectured at the European Business School, (Insead) in France, taught at Oxford Poly in the UK and have lectured using TEFL in Saigon to primarily post secondary school students. There was a great deal of emphasis on public speaking, as ESL courses encourage students as part of the curriculum to present a five minute presentation to the class on an assigned subject. I gave individual as well as group instruction on preparation and presentation.
