About Mark

I have 40 years of experience teaching all Middle and High School Sciences in Massachusetts and Florida. 2010 was my retirement year but my desire is to help, especially in science areas where the concepts are not clearly indicated within books or by teachers. I have clearly seen areas of difficulty for students over the years and my methods include instilling a fascination for the sciences along with a zest for learning. My personal interests in science go back to when I was in the sixth grade, when I designed my own Science Project (Science Fairs did not start until l year later) for which I purified puddle water through distillation. Over the years in addition to teaching the science, I have successfully run school Science Fairs in which my ninth grade students won prizes at the Massachusetts State Fair at MIT. I thoroughly enjoy relating what I know and understand, and welcome all future opportunities.

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.

Anatomy

I have taught a number of Biology courses including Human Biology while teaching in Fall River Massachusetts. To obtain and retain my Secondary Science certification I have taken a number of Biology related courses and I continue to learn more with my own interest because of my own health situation. I have been involved with workshops and have had personal experiences with the role of modern technology as it relates to anatomy.

Astronomy

I have taught Astronomy and Space Science at the High School level for a number of years in Massachusetts. I have also been involved in using the planetarium at Durfee High School in Fall River Massachusetts. My personal interest has prompted me to continue my own education in these areas.

Biology

I have taught High School Biology for a number of years in Massachusetts. I have also tutored Biology at the High School level in Florida. During my tenure I have taken additional Biology courses to keep up with modern advancements.

Chemistry

I always stress the conceptual aspect of Chemistry and Physics which can be likened to climbing stairs rather than scaling a wall. Learning this way is both better and easier.

Physical Science

Especially for tutoring, I stress the conceptual approach.

Physics

I'm teaching conceptual physics in the Fall River Massachusetts schools. I've completed teaching physics for secondary and university instructors Bridgewater State College, Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
