About Marcus

I am a graduate student at the University of Michigan, graduating with my MBA in May 2014.

I was a high school Language Arts instructor for three years in Denver, Colorado through the Teach For America program. I was a certified instructor who taught 10th grade American Literature and 12th grade Journalism.

I pride myself in being able to transform difficult, complex concepts into accessible chunks of knowledge that build upon each other.

Through my teaching experience, I have learned many strategies for educating, and am excited to see how effective these strategies can be in individualized tutoring. I have deep knowledge in reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, and literature. I not only have experience teaching these subjects, I have many exercises and strategies to help your student learn concepts in a long-lasting manner.

I also have deep knowledge in business fields, through my current education at a highly ranked graduate business school and various work experiences.

More than anything, I am passionate about teaching, and I frankly miss my classroom days. Helping a student unlock mastery over a daunting subject and seeing them improve is one of the most enriching experiences of my life. It doesn't hurt to have a few laughs along the way either.

I'm looking forward to helping you or your student!
