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.

Very accommodating and we are seeing quick results

My son just started tutoring with Marcus and we are seeing results right away. He is very flexible in his meeting times with us, and my son has much more confidence in what he’s learning in AP Physics 2 and Calculus BC since working with Marcus.
