About Mark

This is my 32nd year of helping math students become confident, independent, and successful learners.

I love tutoring because of the relationships I develop and the challenge of finding how students learn mathematics. Because students learn in different ways, I incorporate a variety of strategies when tutoring.

I have experience working with a variety of students from grade 6 and up, including those with learning disabilities, with great success!

Math students rock!

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.

Algebra 2

I taught Algebra 2 for 12 years at the high school level and 5 years at the community college level. I tutored it specifically to students as well as those preparing for the ACT. I have taught many different methods for solving systems of equations and the unit circle for the 6 trigonometric functions.
I especially have come to enjoy proving trig identities, which are fun because they are challenging.

GRE

My secondary teaching has given me a solid knowledge base of what is expected of high school students. I taught high school for 20+ years so I am familiar with the subject matter of the GRE. At the community college level, I have helped dozens of students prepare for the GRE with great success.

Precalculus

I have been teaching and/or tutoring Precalculus students for over 20 years. I have a solid background in coursework while earning my Bachelor's degree. I took Precalculus, Calculus I,II,III, and Advanced Calculus, which was 21 credit hours.
I know all of the methods of differentiation and integration and love working on all those types of problems.
