Proven, Experienced, and Patient Math Tutor
Hi parents and students! My name is Mark. I am academically gifted. I got a perfect 800 on my math SAT. I majored in mathematics at Grove City College and was on the math honorary society. I have tutored students in prealgebra, SAT math, ACT Math, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Statistics, Business Calculus, Precalculus, Calculus I, II, and III, and more!

Hi parents and students! My name is Mark. I am academically gifted. I got a perfect 800 on my math SAT. I majored in mathematics at Grove City College and was on the math honorary society. I have tutored students in prealgebra, SAT math, ACT Math, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Statistics, Business Calculus, Precalculus, Calculus I, II, and III, and more! In the past I have taught in a classroom, and tutored both online and for a private tutoring center. I have seen my students grades go from F's to A's and have seen their ACT Math scores go up by as much as 10 points.
I love working with people and I love seeing them succeed. I have tutored people as young as 10 and as old as in their mid 40s. I am a great communicator and have spoke in front of groups as large as 500 people.
In terms of my approach and tutoring it really is quite simple. My goal is to help the students understand why math makes sense instead of teaching them something that they need to repeat. When students get why it makes sense they are more likely to remember it and to enjoy it. I help students learn through examples, asking leading questions, and much more. I am a very affirmative person because I know that a lot of times students aren't doing well because they just don't have the confidence. Through equipping the students and affirming them, they are given the confidence and the tools that they need to succeed!
I am now living in the Warren/Youngstown area. I have room three students max. I will not exceed this limit and it will come on a first come first serve basis.
I have over a thousand hours of tutoring experience and have tutored close to 100 students in a one on one manner. I have never once had a student tutor with me and not want to continue with my face to face services. I am so confident in my skills that if you try me out and aren't satisfied I won't even charge you for any part of the lesson.
I would love to be your tutor!
Great in every way
Mark has been a godsend for our family. He has helped our daughter raise her grade. More importantly, he is teaching her things she now understands (vs.what is happening in her classroom - "talk at" but no real understanding). He is very easy to reach by phone, email or text and is extremely reliable. In addition to being a great math tutor, he's an exceptional human being and fun to work with. We feel very fortunate to have found him! You can't go wrong with Mark.Nancy, 19 lessons with Mark
Very knowledgeable and patient!!
Mark has helped my daughter feel more confident in her curriculum with Algebra II, and is also upbeat and encouraging!! He helped her recognize simple mistakes that motivated her forward into working harder rather than feeling overwhelmed by the content.Alyssa, 4 lessons with Mark

Mark is Fantastic!
When my fiance needed to relearn math he hadn't seen since high school (fractions and geometry), Mark helped him. He went from a 36% to an 89% in 3 days. Mark was kind and patient. I can't say enough good things about him.Lisa, 2 lessons with Mark
Excellent tutor and Math genius
Mark is very intelligent and kind. Stays on topic. He actually makes math fun which I have never thought of math as fun. I have never had a teacher or tutor able to explain math as good as Mark. Thanks Mark.Gwen, 18 lessons with Mark

We're working on getting my child up to speed in math so she will have the skill set to work independentlyJesica, 2 lessons with Mark
Very Knowledgeable, Very Positive
Mark easily connects with my daughters, encourages them and leads them through each lesson. He does not give them answers but helps them utilize deduction skills to apply what they know to figure out what each following step might be. When they are "stuck", he asks them questions related to the problem area until they find a known point to start from and work forward. The girls consistently say if they go ahead and review their upcoming geometry chapters with Mark, they can better understand what is taught in class. Their grades and confidence have improved since Mark has been tutoring them.Kim, 11 lessons with Mark
Mark is a fantastic tutor who I highly recommend. Not only did he help me maintain a solid A in my high school pre-calculus class, but he also worked with me on improving my ACT math score 6 points. He is always readily available to help, be it for reviewing for a quiz or preparing me for a final exam. I highly encourage anyone who is interested in selecting a tutor to consider Mark. I owe much of my success in math to him.Lisa, 14 lessons with Mark
The best teacher!
In my first session on ACT math with Mark, he was by far the best teacher I ever had. He explained why I get certain types of problems wrong and gave me more practice on them. He is amazing!I would highly recommend him for ACT math.Alexandra, 10 lessons with Mark
