About Marlon

I am a practicing Ph.D. economist (I serve as an expert witness on behalf of ratepayers in electricity and natural-gas regulatory proceedings) with more than 15 years of experience teaching principles of economics as an adjunct faculty member. I most recently taught at Metro State University.

In addition to working with undergraduate students, I have successfully assisted students in MBA programs. I can handle micro-, macro- and managerial economics courses, with introductory-level statistics thrown in.

I returned to school at age 43 to get my doctorate. I minored in geography as an undergraduate. Finally, I have worked as a reporter and copy editor at a newspaper, which is where I polished my writing and proofreading skills. My experience demonstrates that I can work with high school to college students.

I see my first task as a tutor, whatever the subject, as letting you, the student, know that you are in safe hands with me. You may be feeling desperate, alone, perhaps even ashamed because you just don't "get" a course. I won't judge you, because, believe me, I have had my struggles in certain courses and know those feelings. When you trust me we can move forward together to address your academic issues. Please contact me so that we can discuss what your situation is. Chances are I can help, just as I have helped the dozens, even hundreds, of my students over the years who sought individual help.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Geography

I minored in geography as an undergraduate at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. My focus within the field was economic geography and European geography. As an economics Ph.D., I integrated these fields into my program.

Macroeconomics

I can work with student at the principles level and MBA level. I taught macroeconomics principles classes and an intermediate macro class at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and for eight years as an adjunct faculty member at Metropolitan State. Further, I taught a pre-MBA course in economics at Metro State. I know the material covered in each course and know effective methods to assist students learn unfamiliar vocabulary and concepts.

Microeconomics

As a tutor, I have had success with MBA students taking microeconomics or managerial economics classes, and with students taking micro principles. I taught microeconomics principles classes a dozen times as a graduate teaching assistant at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I also taught intermediate microeconomics at UNL, and a pre-MBA economics course at Metro State (St. Paul) from 2006-2014. I know the material covered in each course and know effective methods to assist students learn unfamiliar vocabulary and concepts.

Proofreading

I have worked as a reporter and editor for newspapers, as an author and editor of distance-education materials, and edited the papers of fellow students while I was in graduate school. I am an expert witness in public utility regulation, a job in which I constantly apply and renew my writing and editing skills as I prepare written testimony.

Patient and Understanding - great job of explaining

Marlon did a great job tutoring me and preparing me for my MicroEconomics Midterm and Final. I wouldn't have gotten the grade that I did - without his help. Marlon was very accomodating and patient
