About Mark

I have over a decade of experience in tutoring students of all ages and grade levels. I have tutored students in Writing, Math, Latin, and Ancient Greek among other subjects. I have helped students improve their grades and increase their skill level in multiple subjects. I have worked with middle school, high school, college level, and professional adults seeking to increase their aptitude in a variety of subjects. I work collaboratively with parents and students to help construct achievable academic goals. Student academic success as well as increased confidence is my barometer of success.

As a graduate student at Boston College, I strive to maintain a thorough proficiency in Latin. Knowing Latin helps me teach students the fundamentals necessary to becoming a stronger Writer. This is beneficial especially when preparing for standardized tests since these exams test not only subject matter knowledge, but comprehension of the fundamental building blocks of the English language. As a tutor, I specialize in Writing, SAT Writing, Vocabulary, and Grammar. I can help you attain your goals with great success.

I also work as an independent writing consultant where I work with students and professionals in order to assist them during the various stages of the writing process. In my experience, even the best writers benefit from collaborating with other experienced writers. As a writing consultant, I aim to bring out the best in my students while equipping them with the skillsets to write with proficiency and ease. As an Wyzant tutor, I work with parents to ensure that their students both understand their assignments and develop good study skill habits. I take great pride in the work I accomplish with my students. I look forward to working with you!

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.

ADHD

As someone who struggled with ADD/ADHD early in life, I know that students can feel frustrated when they fall behind academically while their peers succeed. As a parent, I know that ADD/ADHD student are often talented and, yet can fall behind in the classroom. As a teacher, I have successfully worked with many students who struggle academically and who need special attention because of learning disabilities. As a Wyzant tutor, I believe that it is essential to establish a working relationship with both students as well as parents in order to ensure that the students focused. When I work with students who have been diagnosed with ADHD, I like to begin by assessing academic needs and learning styles in order to create a tutoring program tailored for each individual student. I firmly believe that students who suffer from ADHD are intellectually gifted and benefit immensely from one on one tutoring and individualized lessons plans. As an educator and a homeschool parent, I have extensive experience working with and helping to improve the grades of students who struggle with ADHD through personalized intervention techniques.

Bible Studies

I am a graduate student at Boston College and am studying Christian Theology, which includes a strong emphasis in Biblical Studies. I have been studying the Bible for more than 15 years and am able to read the New Testament in its original Koine Greek. I am available to teach students to read the New Testament in Greek am also academically familiar with the culture and history of both the Old and New Testaments.

Greek

I am qualified to tutor Ancient Greek because I have taken four semesters of Ancient Greek at a collegiate level. I excelled in the subject matter during my post-baccalaureate studies. I can proficiently read texts written in Ancient Greek and am proficient at reading the New Testament in it's original Koine Greek. I also have experience tutoring high school students, and my goal is to become a teacher. I continue my studies through a lot of self learning.

Homeschool

As a home school parent myself, I understand the importance of providing a quality education to children of all ages and, as a result, I remain involved with several local home school associations. As a parent, I strive to provide my writing, math and classical language skills to other home school families. Due to my firsthand experience as a home schooling parent, I feel confident that together we can work to create curriculum which is tailored to your child's individual strengths and needs. I really enjoy working with home school students since I can always count on parental involvement in the education process. I look forward to working with you to see your child succeed today!

Latin

I have studied Latin and Ancient Greek at the collegiate and graduate level for over almost a decade. I have tutored numerous middle school, high school, and college students in Introductory, Intermediate and advanced Latin. I have even tutored high school Latin teachers who have sought my assistance. I am currently in the process of publishing a dual Latin-English copy of De Potentia Dei of Thomas Aquinas. I look forward to helping you become a better Latin student.

Proofreading

I am familiar with all styles of citation formats and can quickly and efficiently proofread and edit your work. I have worked with high school, college, and graduate students, and can help make the writing process manageable and more enjoyable for you!

Religion

I am currently a graduate student at Boston College and am studying Religion and Theological Studies. I have studied world religions for over 15 years and have academic knowledge of the culture and history of Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism. I have taken several collegiate level classes in Religion and in my current work also specialize in the culture and history of world religions.

Writing

In addition to being a Wyzant Writing, Grammar, Proofreading, and SAT Writing tutor, I am also an independent Writing Consultant. I can meet you at any stage of the writing process and can assist you in brainstorming, outlining, drafting, and revising your work.
