About Marc

Hello! My name is Marc. I have an MBA from Rutgers Business School (Finance), recently earned teaching certificates in Mathematics K-12 and Comprehensive Business, and am substitute teaching while also attending grad school. I have a certificate in Financial Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology and plan to complete a Masters degree in F.E. I've enjoyed tutoring via Wyzant.

I love Calculus. I was very intimidated by it when I was younger. I chose to be a business major (undergrad), after enrolling in Calculus I. I remember that almost the whole class failed the first quiz. I said, "this is not for me." The fact was, the professor wasn't very good. Calculus is not easy, but definitely not impossible, and actually fun... math in general is fun. The trick is to overcome that anxiety..."This stuff looks like another language!... I can't understand this stuff... why bother?" - No. You can do it. Math takes time and work, but when you start to get it, it is a great feeling.

An excellent professor often said, "The more I rush, the more I get behind." So, having patience and being methodical are important. Frustration naturally occurs. But working through problems, we can eventually see the patterns or rules of mathematics, and then appreciate the conceptual nature of the work. Mathematics is so important in many areas of study, careers, etc. I want to help students who feel intimidated by math, realize that they can do it. I think I can help, because I rarely caught on to things right away.

I will break things down, step by step. It is obviously important that I work with you (or your child's) textbook so that he or she succeeds in their class. I was one of those students who saved their textbooks though, so I have quite a library. Sometimes a computer comes in quite handy as well. Especially for visualization of mathematical concepts. Maple, MATLAB, Mathematica and Excel are great software applications for this.

I have worked in the corporate world and have good communication skills. Business School was a great experience. I have good knowledge of Finance, Economics, Accounting, Excel - including VBA programming (macros), Access, and basic programming skills; not only VBA, but C++, R, and MATLAB. Furthermore, I worked as an accountant after graduating college. I know the basics of accounting. I like computers, math, and finance in general.

Never think you can not do anything. Never say math is not for me. It is all about getting serious, patience, practice, and realizing that you may not "get it" right away.

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student, I can help in subjects like Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Accounting, Corporate Finance, Investment Analysis, Portfolio Theory, and Financial Derivatives.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a N.J. certificate of eligibility for a Teacher of Mathematics- K-12, which includes Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

I tutored a student in Algebra 2.


I have an MBA from Rutgers, and many years of experience in business. I've worked as a staff accountant and financial analyst.

This is a very "broad" subject area. However, my education and experience has enabled me to acquire skills such as stock and bond valuation, financial mathematics (PV, FV, IRR, NPV - time value of money calculations, etc.), and various software applications.

I have good knowledge of accounting systems, relational databases, spreadsheet modeling, corporate finance, and investment/portfolio theory. Also, the basics of derivative securities (Black Scholes option pricing, bond mathematics, interest rate swaps, and experience with asset-backed securites). Moreover, I am familiar with optimization models/solutions using Excel's Solver feature for various business problems.


I passed the Praxis II math content exam - a requirement for certification - includes mathematics through single variable calculus.

Computer Programming

I am National Computer Science Academy Certificated: CP 240- Visual C++ Programming. I have good programming skills and knowledge. I have taken graduate courses in MATLAB programming for finance and Introduction to R programming. I have knowledge and experience with VBA (Visual Basic for applications).

Differential Equations

I took undergraduate Differential Equations and received an A. I worked with stochastic and partial differential equations in a graduate stochastic calculus course. I am familiar with common methods of solving differential equations numerically.


Corporate finance
Investment Analysis/Portfolio Theory
Financial Statement Analysis
Money and banking
Financial Markets/Institutions
Excel Modeling-optimization,vba,simulation, basic regression,option valuation and analysis

Linear Algebra

I took linear algebra in college, and did very well. We also used linear algebra in an optimization class in grad school, and at my job as a financial analyst. Excel also has several matrix functions, and VBA functions can be programmed.

I have good knowledge of solving systems of linear equations (REF, RREF), matrix arithmetic and operations, determinants (and their properties), and inverse matrices (and their properties). I am comfortable with proofs, if your class is including proof writing.

Also have good knowledge of vector, vector spaces, linear transformations, subspaces, linear dependence, span, basis, and dimensions. Eigenvalue/Eigenvector problems as well.

One cool thing is the ability to use the computer or calculator to check your answers (besides the book).

Linear Algebra is used a lot in a variety of areas. It is an important class for computer science as well. Many problems in linear algebra are best solved by computers. Numerical Linear Algebra is all about creating algorithms to solve systems of linear equations, eigenvalue/eigenvectors, etc. Without computers, solving a system of, say, 100 linear equations, would take quite a long time doing row-reduction by hand! Got to learn the basics first though. It is a fun course. Takes practice.


I have taken a graduate course in MATLAB for finance at Stevens Institute of Technology. I am familiar with practical financial applications including monte carlo simulation and other methods of derivative pricing. I reviewed online tutorials that Mathworks offers.

Microsoft Access

Advanced Access certification from Executrain.

I used Access extensively for collateral databases related to asset backed securities. Good fundamental knowledge of relational databases.

Streamlined financial reports with macros.


Passed and received high score on the Praxis II Mathematics content exam.

N.J. Teacher of Mathematics K-12 Certificate of Eligibliity was issued May of 2015.

Passed and received high score on the Praxis II comprehensive Business content exam - a requirement for the N.J. Certification of Eligibility for Business Education. (issued February 2015)

Taught a review course for the Praxis Core Math portion at a local college. Took practice exams and worked through examples.

These 3 exams are the only Praxis exams I could tutor.


I am certified to teach mathematics k-12 in NJ, which includes Precalculus.

Visual Basic

Good knowledge of Visual Basic, especially VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) within Excel.

Have VBA work experience and coded several VBA procedures for recent graduate school academic research.

Own 5 books on VBA programming. Interests are Visual Basic for financial applications.
