"Our Goal Is Grade A"

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.

Knowledgeable

My son calls him a genius and said he knew everything off the top of his head. He takes the time and makes sure my son is confident about the subject at hand!!! I’m so happy I found him.

Sonya , 5 lessons with Marcus

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Marcus is very patient and eager to help me understand. Marcus taught me analytical vectors and graphing vectors. I’m still toiling to understand graphing vectors but with his continued help, I’ll be solving graphing vectors soon.

April, 7 lessons with Marcus

Patient and very well thought out answer responses

Marcus helped me with chemistry. He was very patient with me and took care to explain all the steps in each problem. I would definitely recommend him for math problems regarding chemistry or just math in general. He was also very easy to get a hold of.

Dorothea, 1 lesson with Marcus

Initiative-taking and professional

His approach to problem-solving is clear, concise, and direct. He makes math fun with his initiative to find relative topics today that helps with story problems in math. I plan to use his help when I reach statistics.

Ronita, 3 lessons with Marcus

Positive and patient tutor

Marcus was instrumental in improving my grade immensely for my challenging college calculus based Physics class. Marcus goes above and beyond as a tutor and doesn’t just help you with WHAT you are doing but he always makes sure you understand WHY you are doing it. He is also excellent with multistep physics problems in helping you to “connect the dots” as you use multiple equations. Marcus was always on time and helped out with an extra tutoring session when asked. Definitely choose Marcus for a solid understanding of Physics!

David, 8 lessons with Marcus

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.
