I am a PhD life scientist and my training is in molecular biology. I was a biotechnologist at Monsanto Company for a good while and subsequently worked for a number of start up companies. I have experience teaching direct reports and colleagues in the work setting. I have been a mentor for several up and coming scientists. During graduate school I had been a teaching assistant for undergraduate biology classes.

I really enjoy helping students and young scientists solve problems and open up their world to a deeper understanding of the subject matter. My most successful role in both academia and industry was in problem solving, both in the laboratory and in the board room. I have contributed to strategic planning of research projects and have also been responsible for training of technical personnel. I have also had several opportunities to coach my own boys (at Saint Louis Priory) through difficult subject matter in their science and math courses.

Doctoral biological research training from the University of Chicago in molecular genetics, biochemistry, chemistry and microbiology. I have applied my education to real world problems in both biomedical and agricultural fields. In particular I developed detection methods for human growth factors involved with human metastatic melanoma and I have developed transgenic crop plants with enhanced agronomic traits such as drought tolerance and increased yield.

Please contact me when you need help in understanding scientific concepts, and how to solve problems. Many times what really helps is getting the correct perspective about what you are being asked to achieve. Contact me to learn more and to schedule a lesson. I am eager to help you re-digest the subject material and get you past any conceptual barrier. I thrive from your satisfaction with newly understanding the nuances of the science and seeing your scores improve!

Excellent tutor for my 11 year old son

Mark taught alegra and geometry. We look forward to more sessions. He is very good at teaching to the way a student learns. He was very positive and spent significant time talking to me ahead of the first lesson and debriefing me after the lesson. I feel very good with Mark tutoring and I know my son is going to learn so much from him,

Very Knowledgeable and Very Professional

My daughter enjoyed the session with Mark and thought that he helped her. He is very punctual and knows exactly what to do. He is a great communicator which makes everything clear. Pleasure to work with.
