About Mark

Hi, my name is Mark O. I am a junior at the college of engineering of University of North Florida, majoring in Mechanical Engineering. I am absolutely passionate about mathematics, although it has not been this way as one might expect. When I was in middle school I disliked mathematics and even my mathematics teachers, as I failed and struggled in all my mathematics classes. My rapid turn-around occurred when my parents sought help from a tutor, of whom I owe a lot of what I have become today. Mr Bill did not only help me succeed in mathematics, but he instilled my passion for this subject. I desire to instill that same intense desire to learn and succeed in mathematics into another student who struggles with mathematics. I know how difficult and frustrating mathematics can be, but I can also attest to how much fun you can have when you realize the intrinsic nature of mathematics. Once the concepts start falling into place, you will begin to understand the inter-connectivity between all forms of mathematics and other school subjects.

As a soon to become Mechanical Engineer, I am certain that I can teach mathematics to high school and college students respectively. Even as a current college student, I am not too far out of the scope on what goes on in high school and most definitely college. I understand what is circulating through a student's mind and can give first-hand advice on any questions or problems that occur inside or outside of school. Overall, my goal is to be as relate-able to the student as possible while still retaining a rigor in the task at hand.

I have over a year experience in teaching mathematics: Algebra, Pre-calculus, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, and Trigonometry. I have a good record of success from my past students within this short time of tutoring. Aside from teaching, I am an advanced level pianist and bass guitarist. I enjoy music a lot, but if I were to pick between music and maths, I certainly will go for maths.

I believe anyone can succeed in whatever pursuit, as all that is needed is a mentor or teacher. I look forward to working with you soon, so we can uncover all the awe-inspiring concepts in mathematics together!

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.

Differential Equations

As stated in my profile, I am a junior engineering student at University of North Florida. I have taken all Math courses including differential equations. Differential equations was one of my best Math course other than calculus 1,2 and 3. I did extremely well and enjoyed the course. Starting from first order differential equations to second order, Laplace transform, Eigen vectors, and so on. I am confident that I am fully equipped to teach this course, as I even taught my colleagues while I took this course about 2 semester's ago.

Drums

I am an advanced Drummer, I began playing drums before piano around 8 years ago. I have a great musical ear, and drum techniques; riffs, runs, and improvisations in my repertoire. I am versatile in gospel and contemporary drumming. Other than engineering, music is my second love, and I am intuitive and creative with sound. In the span of my career I have taught 5 people, that play well even till date. So I am confident that I can deliver.

Piano

I am an advanced level pianist with over 5 years of experience. I do music as a hobby, but I am also passionate about it, I have tutored privately about 3 students on Piano last year's summer and about 7 in my musical career. I specialize in gospel, jazz, and contemporary piano music. I am versatile in several musical scales like blue, pentatonic, harmonic minor, octatonic, and so on; as well as jazz modes such as locrian, dorian, and so on. I am also versatile at music by ear.
