Semi-retired engineer who loves mathematics

Mark J.
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.

Mark has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **1336 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Explains concepts in a clear and concise way

Mark helped me with questions involving trigonometry. It has been a while since I have worked with trigonometry. Mark explained the concepts needed to solve the problems in a way I was able to understand.

## Thank you Mark!

Mark helped my daughter with geometry and she felt more confident and relaxed after having completed the assignments with him. Mark came to the session prepared with the problems already worked out so he could make the most of their time together. My daughter said she felt much more confident after their session together. We will definitely be reaching out to Mark again. Thank you for your help Mark!

## Brilliant tutor

Dr. Mark was so helpful and is a great teacher. He helped me to understand differential equations step by step so that I can have a clear understanding of the problem. I was able to learn the part that I was struggling with all because of the awesome and amazing help of Dr. Mark. I would highly recommend him to any student that needs tutoring. I would like thank Dr. Mark for his awesome knowledge and helpfulness.

## Great, patient tutor!

Mark came recommended by a friend, responded immediately and made himself available short notice for our son. He spent two sessions / several hours with him helping to makes sense of Algebra 2. So grateful!

## Exceptional

Mark J. worked very well with Sophie. Her feedback was that he was "very nice and explained things much better" than what she was receiving in class. Sophie is a freshman taking College Algebra. I definitely plan more sessions!

Sophie, 4 lessons with Mark

## 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.
