I have a Bachelor's of Science in Physics and a Master of Arts in Teaching both from Brown University. As part of my Masters degree I earned a Teaching Certification from the State of Rhode Island.

Hi. My name is Marc and I'm here to help students improve their understanding (and grades!) in Physics and Math. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Physics and a Master of Arts in Teaching both from Brown University. As part of my Masters degree I earned a Teaching Certification from the State of Rhode Island. As an undergraduate I tutored classmates taking introductory Physics, and spent my winter breaks tutoring High School students in New York in both AP and academic Physics.

My job as a tutor is to meet the needs and goals of the students and parents I work with. I help students get what they're looking for from each session by finding the right methods, from day-to-day homework help to long term skill building in Math and Physics.

When the sessions end, I think the most rewarding and meaningful progress is made when students continue to succeed on their own long after the tutoring sessions are over. As a musician and an athlete, I've borrowed ideas from performance psychology to create tutoring strategies which not only help students improve their scores, but teach them to be better learners, thinkers, and test takers, so that they can approach difficult new topics with ease.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

As a physics major in college, the mathematics that is taught in a class like Algebra 1 had to be second nature to me. I like to think of math as a language that scientists use to describe the universe. When it comes to teaching math I like to help students build strong skills and conceptual knowledge "from the ground up" so that they're not just memorizing rules but really learning the material deeply.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I truly enjoy teaching students math because we get to work up from the bare essentials to more interesting results and ideas. It's my hope that for students that either struggle with or dislike math (or both!) that once they no longer see the subject as just a collection of arbitrary rules but a system built from simple essential concepts they'll feel more confident in their math classes.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is a challenging subject which asks students to think about mathematics in a very different way. Having mastered single and multivariable calculus as a physics major in college, I feel confident that I can help students gain a deep understanding of the topic.
Physics,

Physics

I have a Bachelors of Science in Physics from Brown University, a Masters of Arts in Teaching (Specialization: Secondary Physics) from Brown University and Rhode Island State Teaching Certification. Physics has been one of my biggest passions from a very young age. I took all of the Physics classes I could handle in high school and college, covering a range of topics from basic mechanics to advanced quantum physics. I love teaching and working with students to help them understand the essential ideas that help us understand the universe!
Precalculus

Precalculus

I studied Physics in college, where a deep understanding of essential precalculus concepts such as advanced trigonometry and properties of functions is a must. I love passing this knowledge on to students to help them develop the same deep understanding of mathematics.

First Session

Nice session summary helps re-enforce key themes. Helping with HS Physics and Algebra II for 90 minute sessions. Works to organize prior to meeting so that the session is more productive.

MARK, 8 lessons with Marc

Amazing tutor

Marc has great knowledge of everything physics. He is able to put thing in terms that most students can understand. That was one of the best benefits to working with Marc; my professor who was probably in his mid 50"s had trouble making examples that the class could understand. Marc being closer in age to his student makes it much easier for him to relate to his student, and explains things clearly. Overall my experience with him was excellent . My grades and study techniques definitely had a significant improvement after working with Marc. If you need help with physics you definitely won't be dissatisfied with Marc.

Tayab, 6 lessons with Marc

Helpful and knowledgeable Tutor !

Marc was very helpful in reviewing the practice problems for my upcoming PhysCalc test. He explains concepts in a way that breaks down the information into manageable concepts.

Joyce, 6 lessons with Marc

Excellent tutor.

My daughter has found Marc's approach to be very helpful. He breaks things down, helps her identify common mistakes/pitfalls, and is able to assess strengths and weaknesses. He knows how to put people at ease and is super knowledgeable. A great tutor!

Evie, 18 lessons with Marc

Calm and patient

He is extremely patient and very good at teaching the concepts. Also, he works on helping remain calm about what you are learning edited an exam. He has helped me feel confident about the subject matter and he is a dependable tutor. Two thumbs up for his teaching approach with students.
