About Marc

Hello!

My name is Marc and I'm a tutor who specializes in English and foreign languages. I have had a lot of tutoring experience since graduating from high school in 2005. I have studied Japanese for 8 years and Spanish for 5 years. I also know intermediate French and Russian. I have a very strong grasp on the English language and can help in all areas including reading, writing, grammar, and speaking. I've helped many foreign students practice and improve their English and I thoroughly enjoy it. In 2006, I was an English language assistant at an elementary school in Quebec, Canada. I helped sixth-grade French students practice English through the use of games and other activities. In recent years I've taught English in St. Petersburg, Russia. I love helping students learn and improve in languages and I am very patient when it comes to tutoring. I like to have fun in the process, too. I recently earned my BA in TESOL at Hawaii Pacific University. AT HPU I worked as a writing tutor and writing mentor helping students improve their essays and research papers. I strive to make language-learning enjoyable, interesting, and applicable to daily life.

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.

Bible Studies

From kindergarten through 12th grade, I attended a Christian school. Every year in school I had Bible class. Along with Bible studies in school, I also have attended church my entire life where I've studied the Bible in Sunday school, youth groups, and other classes. I read the Bible on a regular basis so I have a thorough and current knowledge of this subject.

English

I write short fiction and creative non-fiction.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker and I worked as an ESL tutor over the course of my studies at HPU and for a number of years prior in places like Washington State, Quebec, and Russia. I have had many experiences tutoring and teaching English to people from around the world, especially Japanese, French, and Russian learners.

Japanese

I have studied Japanese for about 8 years. During that time, I've taken five college Japanese courses and have studied countless hours by myself. I have an advanced knowledge of conversational Japanese.

Russian

I took private Russian lessons in St. Petersburg, Russia for approximately one year and studied the language on my own at home. I am fairly proficient in this language and can teach elementary Russian to students.

Spanish

I have studied Spanish for about five years and have spent time in Mexico where I practiced the language and immersed myself in the culture. I use Spanish frequently here in the U.S. Spanish is one of the world languages I am most proficient in. I can teach beginner to intermediate-level Spanish.

Writing

While studying at Hawaii Pacific University, I worked as a writing tutor and mentor from 2015 through 2017 at the Center for Academic Success where I received my level one certification in the CRLA International Tutor Training Program. I am passionate about both academic and creative writing and am skilled at APA and MLA formatting, research and research writing, essay writing, editing, and proofreading. I also had two short fiction pieces published in HPU's literary magazine, "Wanderlust".
