Social Studies

From 1989-1992 (3 years) I was a full-time, appointed 7th and 8th grade Social Studies teacher at a public Middle School in Brooklyn, NY. I prepared and delivered a wide variety of interesting, creative and challenging lessons for several honors classes on a full-time basis.

We went over culture and grammar topics. Marc is very knowledgeable and experienced tutor. He came very well prepared and gave me a list of website and books that will help me in long term. The best part is he is very experienced so he could point out best learning mechanism applies to me, common mistakes other people make and helpful tips to avoid that.

Patient Tutor with different ways to teach

I have a test coming up next Saturday and I asked Marc to teach me the basics to solve some Algebra problems, it was a great time that I could spend with him at Library so he could show me and review what I had learn at Elementary School. I am glad that I did because I could get home and study easily by the stuff that he told me. He doesn't rush the subjects and has a clear English ( it is my second language). Thank you

Great turor

Marc has been an amazing tutor. He is patient and gets to know his student. He is on time and brings work with him for review. I was very impressed and satisfied with his work. Marc has helped my son go up over 10 points on his overall math grade and should he need a math tutor next school year, I would call Marc back. Since working with Marc, my son's overall math grade has gone up 3 points, which is amazing because he has been at the same level since 6th grade.
