Hello,

My name is Mark and I am an attorney by training and education. I currently work for a small software company focusing on education products. My family and I recently moved to the Raleigh, NC area from Chicago, IL. My undergraduate degree was in history with additional areas of focus including English, politics, and even more history. During college (having done very well on my SAT exam), I also worked as an SAT test prep tutor, traveling all around Boston, MA to help high school students raise their SAT scores. When tutoring, I combine my education and tutoring experience with an understanding and receptive demeanor.

I believe that each student learns differently and that the same methods may not work for everyone. It's part of my job to find out the best way to help a student learn more effectively. For some, this may be through games or music; for others, it may be through oral discussions, written exercises, or practice tests. My first job is to figure out the most effective way to help a student learn and then to apply that to the particular subject- be it history, SAT test prep, English, or related areas.

Criminal Justice

I have a JD from DePaul University College of Law. During law school, I took many criminal law classes, including ones about evidence, drug policy, pre-trial motions, trial advocacy, as well as constitutional law. After law school, I was an assistant state's attorney (prosecutor) in Cook County, Illinois (Chicago). I handled hundreds of criminal cases including ones involving drugs, DUI, theft, assault, battery, etc.

During law school, I was on the moot court trial team- this allowed me to practice speaking before judges, peers, and trained attorneys multiple times per week for almost two years. As an attorney, I have conducted 12 jury trials, arguing cases before members of society, and hundreds of motions before judges. All of these trials and motions have given me more than 10 years of experience speaking before public crowds.
