Bio

I am passionate about math, physics, and chemistry 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...

I am passionate about math, physics, and chemistry 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.

Kendra, 2 lessons with Marcus

Very knowledgeable and patient.

Marcus has a wonderful way about him. He knows physics inside and out and is very good at explaining it to the boys. He delivers useful information to the kids with a good sense of humor. We are so glad he is helping the boys!

Sharon, 18 lessons with Marcus

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

Shay, 4 lessons with Marcus

Great Tutor

Marcus is a very patient tutor. Marcus will find a way to help you understand what you don't understand by using small parts of a big equation, and breaking it down until you get it.

Dawn, 3 lessons with Marcus

Great teacher!

Doctor L. is patient and he's very passionate and knowledgeable about physics. He explained every single concept and formula I had to understand with ease.

Al, 3 lessons with Marcus

Very helpful tutor

Marcus helped me with my university calculus based physics course. Marcus replied very quickly and was able to fit me in the day before my exam to help with some last minute questions I had. Very helpful and good at explaining any questions I had.

Lauren, 1 lesson with Marcus

Very patient - works with you until he knows you thoroughly understand the material.

Marcus helps break down complex problems into simpler, more manageable problems, then works you up to understand the topic on a broader scale. He's very patient and thorough, and explains each problem in a way unique to your learning style.

Shelley, 6 lessons with Marcus

Very Patient and Knowledgeable

My son feels very comfortable with Marcus. Marcus helped my son enjoy physics again. His last test score improved by a whole grade. Thanks Marcus for all of your help.

Cynthia, 13 lessons with Marcus

Great tutor!

Great tutor! Very helpful and clear. He is willing to go above and beyond; he made me an additional information sheet and emailed it to me, which was extra work for him outside of our meeting time.

Rachel, 10 lessons with Marcus

Great Tutor

After looking at several tutors I chose Marcus L. I liked his 5 stars rating and his educational experience. I could have went with less expensive tutors but I firmly believe you get what you pay for, Marcus has proven to be the BEST! He knows physics and he is easy to understand. He has taught me more in the last few sessions then my professor all year. I would highly recommend to everyone!! He is absolutely the BEST!! Thanks so much Marcus
