About Mark


Bio

I have been living Math and Science all my life. My mother was a math teacher, and inspired and challenged me at an early age. In my 43-year career with NASA, I developed a broad range of technical skills, with emphasis on physics, engineering, and the supporting math. Outside of my work, I have always had relevant hobbies--ranging from math puzzles to the repair of antique radios.

I have been living Math and Science all my life. My mother was a math teacher, and inspired and challenged me at an early age. In my 43-year career with NASA, I developed a broad range of technical skills, with emphasis on physics, engineering, and the supporting math. Outside of my work, I have always had relevant hobbies--ranging from math puzzles to the repair of antique radios.

In my professional life, I was involved in a variety of training and mentoring activities. Since retiring, I have tutored at the Sylvan Learning Center and--most recently--have served as a substitute teacher at the Key School in Annapolis. I have also continued private tutoring. A particular skill is helping students relate to complex problems using real-world examples. Any tutoring assignment will begin with an evaluation--with the objective of establishing a mutual understanding of where the student needs help. Next, I observe how the student approaches a problem in order to assess where the "sticking points" are. The end objective is for the student to recognize the issues and develop solutions that work for them.

Photography

I have been an amateur photographer all my life. I have worked with a wide variety of cameras, including film and digital, and I have extensive experience in darkroom work and in digital processing and printing. My career with NASA centered on camera systems for space missions, beginning with the first mission to Mercury in 1973. Through my hobby and work experience, I have lots of practical experience backed up by a comprehensive understanding of the physics.

Outstanding and incredible teacher!

He really helped me through my science fair project. He was very knowledgeable and was able to explain and perform every detail perfectly! If anyone else is interested in his help, I totally recommend it.

Spent time to understand my sons pace

Mark is an excellent Tutor, is patient and understanding. Very knowledgeable in Physic's and helping each student achieve a good understanding of basic concepts.

Gavin, 8 lessons with Mark

He got through to my son

Mark was extremely flexible in working with us, and had a great first session with my son, who came home saying that he really understood some of his Algebra II after working with my son. We are looking forward to future lessons. Thanks for your help, Mark!

Dana, 11 lessons with Mark

A knowledgable and patient tutor.

Mark did a great job helping my daughter work and visualize her formulas. He was patient, attentive and took time to understand her approach to learning. Just the time spent in her first lesson and his approach helped her! Mark is definitely a tutor I would recommend - he definitely made a difference for us right from the start.

Excellent Tutor!

Mark is very knowledgeable about all aspects of photography. I want to understand light metering and he explained how light works in relationship to an external meter as well as in the camera. Excellent lesson.

Terri, 1 lesson with Mark

Knowledgeable and patient

Mark is doing a great job helping Remington understand concepts and how to apply them. His Physics teacher told me that Remington is eager to participate and confident in his knowledge.
