About Marc

I am a certified teacher with nine years of classroom experience teaching students of various ages and education levels. I have taught students from 6th through 12th grades at remedial through advanced levels. I have been trained and in turn taught other staff members the basics of the Common Core writing standards. I was a member of a district wide team of writing teachers who sought to streamline the art and science of teaching writing across grade levels. I developed and led both after school creative writing clubs and school newspapers. I have taught struggling students the basics of decoding skills in reading and I have challenged proficient readers to critically analyze the great works of literature.

In addition to my experience as a teacher I have had other contacts with students through my time as a football coach, baseball coach, and my time as a youth pastor. I have worked with parents as a teacher, coach, and youth leader in hopes of helping them understand how they too can help their children. As a father of five children I know the importance that parents play in the lives of their children.

I hope to work with students by assessing their need, setting achievable goals, then designing a personal plan that will allow them to achieve success. I believe that the most important component in education is the student. When they own their own educational goals they will soar.

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

I have taken 30+ graduate-level credits toward a Master's of Divinity degree through Western Seminary in Portland. I spent four years as a senior pastor and an additional two years as a youth pastor. I have preached through numerous books of the Bible and feel competent in all areas of Biblical studies.

Common Core

As a teacher I used the 11th grade Common Core standards to design my English classroom. I have also gone through Common Core writing standards training through an educational services department in Yakima, Washington. I have used the Common Core writing concepts in a classroom setting and trained fellow staff members on the expectations of Common Core writing.

Football

I have over ten years of football coaching experience. I have coached offensive and defensive linemen, been a high school defensive coordinator, a high school special teams coordinator, and a junior high head coach. I have worked in many different offensive and defensive philosophies including the Wing-T, the I, the spread, the 4-3, the 4-4, and the 5-2. I have been involved with off-season training programs as well.
