About Mark


Bio

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 creative 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!

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.

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.
