About Marc

Welcome to the Marc S., "Tutoring for Excellence," WyzAnt Connection!

It is an honor for me to help students of all ages accomplish their goals. I have had a lifetime full of teaching English and French at all levels. It has been a privilege to see my students succeed. I learned French in Paris, France when I was eight. My passion for English started in England, studying the classics. I also passed French with an 'A' grade in their A-level exams. I received high SAT scores, and went to Brown University, graduating with a B.A. in Semiotics-Communications.

I tutored my two sons from an early age every day after school. I tutored youth and young adults daily in English skills, 2008 through 2014.
One special-ed student with a hearing handicap was able to begin communicating so well that he became talented in public speaking! Two young men received full scholarships to Oral Roberts University! One young lady went on to earn her M.A. and then...her PhD! Two young women entrepreneurs built their own LLC businesses in proofreading, publishing and editing!

I am the author of two books, published on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. I help students write papers and develop reading comprehension. I am patient and kind and encouraging. I would be glad to help you improve your English communication and comprehension skills, or to help you learn the French language. I also specialize in tutoring the winning strategies for achieving your highest score on the ACT and SAT exams.

I am committed to help you achieve your potential. With my proven teaching style, I make learning fun and accessible. Your confidence will develop for success in school and in the market place, at work and at home.

Hope to hear from you soon!
Best regards until then,

Marc

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.

ACT English

First I did really good on the SAT exams and went to Brown University and got into Yale as well.
Following this, I had experience with tutoring high school students and helping them get high scores in the SAT and ACT exams. They wanted to go to the College/University of their heart's desire and many were accepted to great schools and were able to go to their dream College/University.

My education in England focused in depth on the writings of Shakespeare. At Brown University I majored with a B.A. in Semiotics--reading and writing comprehension in literature and film.
Starting in 2010, I spent 32 months writing my own book, "The Coolness of Josh." I am excited to say I am a published author on Amazon, thanks be to God.

My life-long passion for writing and reading comprehension is available to you--to help you understand the complexities of the ACT English exams, from reading comprehension to writing and to improve your skills and confidence, so you can have success in going to the College--University you want.

Bible Studies

My tutoring style is based on a passionate lifetime of understanding Bible studies and applying them in my own life. I have tutored students in my Brown Christian Fellowship, and I have also tutored students in a youth group for young adults.

My gift is to be able to give a simple understanding of what seems like a complex subject.

I explain the meaning of certain verses by referring to other verses in the Bible; by using different translations (The Living Bible, the Philips New Testament, King James Version, NIV,etc.); by referring to my own life experiences; and to past historical influences from Martin Luther to Mother Teresa; to present current influences such as Joseph Prince.

The Word of God is living and active and I have seen many young people's lives be transformed when they put their faith in Jesus Christ and believed in his promises.

The Bible is a very exciting subject to teach. I'm passionate about how certain Bible verses apply to our cultural context, such as obedience to the government, believing in God's power to heal in the midst of our current health care system, creation versus evolution, doing business as a Christian.

In summary I am able to tutor the Bible and make it simple and meaningful, based on all my years of experience and Bible learning from Bible School at Oral Roberts University where I studied how to interpret the Bible.

Film

I graduated from Brown University in 1980 with a B.A. in Semiotics-Film in conjunction with the Rhode Island School of Design Film School. I produced three short B/W films, specializing in photography, audio soundtrack and editing. My tutoring specialty is film history. Student must be willing to watch movies and knowledgeably comment on them for homework.

French

Salut!
Je parle le Francais courament avec un bon accent bien Parisien. I also speak English, write books in English and do translation work for the Waldorf-Hilton Chef de Patisserie when needed, to name one example. I was raised in Paris from ages 8-20.

I can teach you all the beginner words and on up to intermediate French, and advanced. I have a huge cultural history to share, wide knowledge of French literature, and many experiences and even comic books in French.

France is a wonderful country and French is my native heart language. I love French and knowing French has exponentially increased my abilities in writing, communication and understanding the world. Are you ready? C'est bon. On y va!

Public Speaking

In 2008, I helped charter the POETS--The Pursuers of Excellence Toastmasters club in Tulsa, OK. During our weekly meetings for the next four years, I gave 33 speeches, following the track of the Communicator and Leadership manuals. I mentored new members and helped them grow in confidence as public speakers.I competed in speech contests and was known for my innovative style and sense of humor.
My highest level qualification achieved is Competent Communicator Silver and Leadership Bronze. I was President and Area Governor, before moving to Florida in 2012.

SAT Reading

My Qualifications for tutoring SAT reading are:
First I did really good on the SAT exams and went to Brown University and got into Yale as well.

My life-long passion for reading comprehension is available for you--to help you understand the complexities of the SAT reading exams, and I am committed to your success in going to the college of your choice!

SAT Writing

I achieved high scores when personally taking SAT exams. I was accepted at Yale and Brown Universities. I graduated from Brown in 1980.

I have experience tutoring high school students seeking to maximize their SAT scores to qualify for their chosen college or university. It was gratifying to see them pursue higher education at the Colleges and Universities of their dreams.

My education in England focused on the diverse works of many great writers. I majored at Brown University in Semiotics--reading and writing comprehension in literature and film; and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree.

I wrote my own book, "The Coolness of Josh," now published on Amazon.
My life-long passion for writing and reading comprehension is available for you--to help you understand the complexities of the SAT exams, from memorizing vocabulary, to reading comprehension; and I am committed to your success and to helping you go to the University/College of your dreams!
