About Mark


Bio

I have studied taught Classical Languages such as Latin and Ancient Greek at the collegiate and graduate level for over 10 years. I have tutored numerous middle school, high school, and college students in Introductory, Intermediate, Advanced as well as A.P. Latin. I am currently in the process of producing a dual Latin-English copy of Book of Psalms, which will be available for purchase on Amazon.com in the late Spring 2018. Lastly, I am in working this summer with the Aquinas Institute...

I have studied taught Classical Languages such as Latin and Ancient Greek at the collegiate and graduate level for over 10 years. I have tutored numerous middle school, high school, and college students in Introductory, Intermediate, Advanced as well as A.P. Latin. I am currently in the process of producing a dual Latin-English copy of Book of Psalms, which will be available for purchase on Amazon.com in the late Spring 2018. Lastly, I am in working this summer with the Aquinas Institute to begin translating select portions of the Opera Omnia of Thomas Aquinas for eventual publication.
As a graduate student at Boston College, I am always in the process of doing research and writing papers. Because of this expertise, I often work with students from Wyzant who need help refining their writing skills or just need someone to proofread an important assignment. I find that my background in both classical languages and writing gives me an edge while working with students since I understand the fundamentals of grammar in several different languages. I take great pride in the work I accomplish with my students. I look forward to working with you!

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!

Special Needs

ADHD

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.

Great first lesson

My son (5th Grader) had his first lesson with Mark. Mark gave him essay writing tips and worked with him on drafting an essay with a topic my son chose. I can tell the improvement from the past essay right away. Mark is very patient and is responsive when I reach out to him with questions. Thank you, Mark!

Yanming, 1 lesson with Mark

Patient, knowledgeable, invested in continued success.

From overhearing the tutoring lesson with my child I can tell that Mark is not in it as a one-time deal, but rather plans ahead and discusses the importance of continuing to study over the summer break. He cares about continued success.

Johanna, 2 lessons with Mark

Very engaging, knowledgeable, and interesting

Mark taught about the brain and nervous system. He used creative approach to understanding the topic. He obviously spent time preparing the lesson and as always was enthusiastic about teaching.
