About Mark

I have 20 years' experience as a classroom teacher in North Carolina - ten years teaching Social Studies/History and ten as a Mathematics instructor. I have taught several subjects in those areas including Algebra I, Algebra (Australia) II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, US History, Economic Legal and Political Systems, World Geography, Sociology, and Psychology. I have extensive experience utilizing various differentiated instruction models and in using technology to meet students needs.

Personally, I have spent the past three years living abroad in Australia and experienced a unique culture and cuisine. Australia is a beautiful place with so many interesting people, animals, and foods. I also spent 24 years coaching football in various positions from position coach to offensive coordinator with a special interest in the spread option attack.

I have three daughters aged 23, 19 and 17, The oldest is a RN. The middle daughter is in school at UNC Asheville and the youngest is currently a senior in high school. All three graduated or are in the top ten of their respective classes.

I have been trained in many different teaching strategies including but not limited to CRISS, differentiated instruction and learning styles inventories. My abilities as a communicator and identifier of student needs is exceptional. In short I have many acquired skills and techniques to help your child master subjects that they need help with. I enjoy encouraging children to think and love the subsequent feeling of confidence that it instills in them. Hopefully it creates a desire in them for life long learning.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Football

I have coached high school football for 24 years. I have served as a position coach for offensive linemen, defensive linemen, running backs, wide receivers, and quarterbacks. I have also served as an offensive coordinator and worked at numerous summer college camps. I have a thorough knowledge of the rules of the game as well as individual skill development for various positions.

Microsoft Outlook

Outlook has been my preferred method of email since it first came out. I have used all the versions of it and noted the differences in each update. I am skilled at setting up mailboxes and adding/removing mail accounts. I also have experience using the calendar and reminder functions for planning and time management.
