About Mark

I have about 10 years' experience teaching various subjects - in particular, English, History, and Art. I enjoy a broad background in these fields, having lived and studied many years in the UK, as well as the US. I hold a Master's Degree from Oxford University and studied as a Special Student at Columbia University in their graduate program. I am also well-read and knowledgeable about many other areas, such as the arts in general, the news, and world events, and, when appropriate, sometimes I relate these to the area being studied to help broaden the student's understanding.

Many of my students initially showed little interest or knowledge in my subjects, but within a short time I had success in changing their attitudes and ability. I enjoy getting to know the student and creating a good rapport; and try to bring out their full potential by making ideas accessible in a way that they can relate to and enjoy. I aim to create interest by keeping the lesson fresh and lively, and by actively involving the student.

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.
