About Marcus

Hello

I am Marcus, and if you are looking for a inspiring, dedicated, and results driven tutor, I am your man!

Teaching is a family trade that I have been exposed to for many years. My mother taught in the local elementary school for 25 years. Within the same school, my uncle was the principal. In all, I had a total of five uncles and aunts that were educators on different levels from elementary to college. As a young man, I witnessed the impact a positive and strong teacher could have on a person's life. Hearing all the positive comments from the students about my family's work convinced me that I needed to continue the tradition. As such, here I am!

My undergraduate education was completed with a Bachelors of Art Degree in Political Science from Mississippi Valley State University. I have been a classroom teacher for more than six years. During that time I have worked with students in grades 4-8. Also, I have tutored high school students in study skills, science, and other subjects. I have taught in self-contained classrooms. Therefore, I am capable of teaching multiple subjects with great success. Currently I am a middle school science teacher and I teach 7th and 8th grade students. As part of my job responsibilities I teach math test prep classes four days a week. I have experience with students accommodations and other special needs.

I like to use a multitude of methods to reach my student learners. I prefer to use technological approaches in addition to conventional methods of instruction. However, my underlying theory of success centers on the relationship and trust between instructor and pupil.

Teaching is truly my passion.
