About Marcus

I am passionate about math and physics and I am easy to understand. I try to make students very comfortable with me because I understand that their level of learning, comprehension, and confidence increases in a comfortable setting. My objective is to help students improve their test scores which results in better grades. I work with students until I know they thoroughly understand the material. I help break down complex problems into simpler, more manageable problems, then work up to understanding the topic on a broader scale. I explain each problem in a way unique to the student's learning style. I try to help students enjoy math and physics throughout the tutoring sessions.

I am retired after working 30 years as an Engineer in the Automotive Industry and 6 years as an Adjunct Physics Professor at Lawrence Technological University.

Awesome tutor!

He literally walked me through every single problem and explained to me in an easier way than I ever would've by my own professor! I'm glad I was able to find him and feel so much more confident in physics a lot more now
