I am ready to tutor any & all students that are interested in expanding their horizons and exploring new ideas and concepts with goal of mastering any subject of interest.

I am 64 years old with B.S. degrees in Mathematics and Mechanical Engineering. I am now semi-retired and have the time to share my learning and experience with you. My specialty and main interests lie in mathematics but my background in engineering allows me to share my knowledge of the sciences with you also.

My best skills are in Algebra, Calculus, Differential Equations, & Physics. I can travel and enjoy meeting new people. I obtain satisfaction when students master the subject matter and their grades improve steadily. Math is a subject that some students find mystifying but with an understanding of the subject concepts, a student can move up and be proud of their accomplishments.

Results are obtained with a dedication from both the student and the tutor. My philosophy is to learn through real world examples and repetition is a part of that philosophy. Each learning session will proceed at the pace that is best for the student and/or the parent and homework for the student and myself is essential to streamlining the sessions so that little time is wasted. I will confer with the student, parent & teacher if necessary to provide the needed direction at all times. So, if you are ready and interested in a whole new learning experience, I am at your service.

awesome teacher and prepared

Mark was great and had worked out all the questions I sent him prior to our meeting. This was very helpful because there wasn’t any time waisted, it was a very efficient session. Would highly recommend. We studied problems mainly pertained to strength of materials.

Riley , 1 lesson with Mark

Very patient and very skilled in Math

On time and did a fantastic job with our 13 year old son. Our son was extremely upset we were getting him a tutor but after his session he loved Mark and was grateful for the help.

Stephen, 1 lesson with Mark

Calculus

Mark was very patient, articulate and organized. My daughter was struggling with Calculus. With Mark's ability to break down the material, my daughter was able to grasp hard calculus concepts. I highly recommend Mark! We scheduled a weekly session .

Jenifer, 4 lessons with Mark

Awesome tutor!!

Mark was very patient and knowledgeable. We worked through a number of problems thoroughly and he made them seem so easy!!

Joy, 1 lesson with Mark

Great Math Tutor

Mark does great at explaining content. Would definitely recommend to any math students. I have been very pleased with the lessons. Even in a short period of time, he helped clarify a lot of concepts in Calculus.

Jesse, 2 lessons with Mark

Amazing!

Mark is truly amazing. Organized, communication is fantastic, and most importantly, my student is understanding the subject matter! Excited for our next session.

Maya, 8 lessons with Mark

Excellent Instructor

Kamari really enjoyed her session…She walked out confident though she will need more sessions to get her going. She stated Mr.Mark helped her grasp the formulas for the lessons they were able to go over. Thank you!!!

Krystle, 1 lesson with Mark

Review of Integral Applications

Mark was great! He will make sure you are clear and explains the solutions in a way that helps you understand. His enthusiasm is helpful and will not give up until you understand the problems.

Jeff, 3 lessons with Mark

Marks A++

Mark has helped my son progress through pre-cal homeschool this semester he has the top notch teaching skills and patience required for the job! My son was lagging behind and needed a tutor to step in and help him understand the concepts and catch up on his work. Mark has been a huge help with motivating my son as well as helping him learn at a faster pace.

Laura, 35 lessons with Mark

Mark's the best!!

I was frustrated and felt like I was sinking, but with just one tutoring session, Mark was able to explain it a different way that made me understand it better. He is very patient and explains everything in depth. I would highly recommend him.
