Bio

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.

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

He is great!

Marlon is a very patient man, no matter how hard was for me to understand the concepts he made sure I got it. I highly recommend Marlon as your tutor.
