About Mark

Hi, thank you for taking the time to consider me as a tutor for your child or children. I have been teaching since 1989 in many places across the United States, including North Carolina, Texas, and Tennessee. I also have experience as an international teacher for Cambridge University in Changzhou, China. I would like to share some of my philosophical tenets regarding the best possible education for every child I tutor.

First, I have spent many years preparing new students for the tasks that lie ahead for them. I believe in a warm and friendly, yet professional approach when working with students; I only succeed in my job, when the students under my tutelage succeed as well. One of the ways I have done this relates directly with one the “essential functions.” Creating a detailed educational plan is one of the most important aspects in showing students not only what lies ahead for them, but also allows me the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the needs and want of each student.

Second, I have many years of experience in creating cohesive and logical learning environments in order for my students to thrive; my lessons are very structured but also allow free expression from the students I teach. I treat every student equally and pride myself in discovering each student’s strengths; in this way, they learn to trust and respect me in the same way that I respect them.

Third, I have an extensive background in not only teaching English but also many social studies and history programs. I am an extroverted individual with a quick wit and spontaneous nature. I most certainly have “exceptional oral and written communication skills,” and enjoy speaking in public. I am passionate about education and this passion comes through when I share my experiences with others. Helping students achieve their education goals quite simply warms my soul.

My hourly fee may be slightly higher than other tutors may, but you can be assured that your child’s educational experiences will improve dramatically and they will enjoy the tutoring experience with me. I am always available for my students and parents. Education should be a thrilling and thoroughly enjoyable experience and I can guarantee that your child will grow and prosper after working with me.

Thank you for your time; I look forward to hearing from you soon. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
