My teaching experiences have taken me to various schools where I have taught an interesting variety of students. Rare is the concept that I cannot help any given student understand the subject.

I am an experienced teacher of 25 years. I have taught a wide range of subjects which include: science, math, English, history, health, physical education, and Spanish.

My teaching experiences have taken me to various schools where I have taught an interesting variety of students. Rare is the concept that I cannot help any given student understand the subject.

Learning can be at times difficult. I have the patience and understanding of student learning frustration. I am upbeat in attitude and will settle for nothing less that success. Every student can conquer their school lessons with my help. I look forward to teaming up with today's challenged learners and seeing them be successful.

My excitement about teaching is as high as it was when I started. Discussing subject matter is still one of my favorite things to do. My enthusiasm is infectious, and my greatest delight is helping students learn.

My college course work was comprehensive in format. I have studied chemistry, physics, geology, botany, biochemistry, microbiology, astronomy, and zoology. These courses often included laboratories in which I learned a wide variety of lab techniques. Although science is often thought of as a harder subject, I have the unique ability to make science sensible and relevant to any student.

If you feel helpless or discouraged about learning, I am the person that can help. Do not quit. Contact me and we will be winners together.

I have a BS degree in comprehensive biology education from the Ohio State University. I have also completed 12 credit hours towards my Master's degree from Bob Jones University. I am also a certified teacher in biology and mid-level science in the state of Pennsylvania.

I have taught courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science. I am well versed in the content material in these subjects, and I have extensive experience in laboratory instruction. I have also planned and executed numerous field studies for these academic areas.

The Very Best

He is very patient with my child and knowledgeable of her needs , the very best for my beginner daughter, he teaches her school notes ahead of her class which is a plus for her

RACHAEL, 5 lessons with Mark

Off to a great start!

My son has only had one lesson with Mark but I think it went great. I loved that he went over some basics to understand what my 10 yr old already knew (he started lessons about a year ago in school). Looking forward to my 5th grader continuing to learn from him.

First Lesson - wonderful

Dillan had not even put his saxophone together yet. Mark walked him through step by step how to take care of his instrument and how to play 3 notes. Wow! I thought it would take a few lessons for Dillan to learn a note or two, and now he plays 3-6 before his second lessons. Great, thank you Mark

My 16 year old daughter is switching to tenor saxophone from the flute and Mark was very patient and kind with her. She felt very comfortable with him and learned a lot!

This Tutor Answered my Prayers!

Mark R. has been working with my 12 year old son for a few months now. The improvement is wonderful. My son was struggling across the board in his subjects. Some subjects worse than others. Mark has been such a perfect fit for both my son and for me as a parent. My son has enjoyed working with Mark from the beginning. Mark evaluated every subject to see where my son was lacking. In each subject he has been filling in the gaps, helping each area of difficulty become achievable. He works with him in multiple ways to ensure he understands the material. Mark has been able to cover all subjects with the amount of knowledge he possesses. If only he could help my son to take out the trash on time, but that's not his job. My son thinks this tutor has a great teaching style and cares that he is learning and about him as an individual. As a parent, I think Mark is very professional, knowledgeable, patient, and most of all the communication with me is terrific. I get daily updates that let me know what they covered, how it went and what my son is struggling with. If at any time Mark thinks something might help in any way, he lets me know. This kind of feedback is so valuable to me. I am a busy person, I wish I could do hours of schoolwork with my son, but I can't. Mark helps me feel that I'm involved and have full awareness of their lessons and when I need to get involved. I'm able to focus on my work and the time I spend with my son doesn't become a homework battle every night. This has greatly improved the time we spend together because it is no longer filled with arguments. I would and do recommend this tutor to any parent wanting an excellent tutor. My final comment is, "thank you, Mark," my son is learning!

Yvonne, 234 lessons with Mark

Great first lesson

learned the basics of how to handle the sax, what the important parts of the sax such as the reed, how to properly blow into the sax and actually learned 4 notes: C,B,A and G. I am very pleased with my first lesson and will be continuing with Mark.
