About Mark


Bio

I first tutored as an undergrad in 1982, with resounding success. I spent more than a decade teaching over 140 sections of courses in seven different academic disciplines at a number of universities. I also spent over a decade editing. I have more than 2000 individual publishing credits. As a tutor I do virtually anything, from help with elementary school work (and I have worked with special needs students--autism, ADHD) to standardized test prep to aiding with college and graduate coursework...

I first tutored as an undergrad in 1982, with resounding success. I spent more than a decade teaching over 140 sections of courses in seven different academic disciplines at a number of universities. I also spent over a decade editing. I have more than 2000 individual publishing credits. As a tutor I do virtually anything, from help with elementary school work (and I have worked with special needs students--autism, ADHD) to standardized test prep to aiding with college and graduate coursework to brain training to life enrichment to admissions counseling to editing to whatever needs my clients have. My strongest academic backgrounds are in ancient Mediterranean history (I have taught graduate courses in Greek and Roman history) and in the ancient Near East, particularly the Hebrew Bible, which I studied at Harvard and Johns Hopkins. If there is something I cannot help a client with, I will be honest about it. I have found that virtually all of those I have tutored could do the work themselves. My goal is to help my students become independent, so that they do not need to use me or anyone else. I am not tutoring to become wealthy (which is fortunate, given there is little to be made), but to empower my students.
