Hi prospective students,
My name is Mark. I love to teach, I am very patient, I listen to my students, and my goal is for each and every one of my students to get success in their respective subjects. It would be my dream to teach full-time, but I have chosen the full-time career path of a physicist. Tutoring allows me to get in touch with my passion for teaching and helping students attain success!
I have an extensive background teaching and tutoring Math, Physics and Computer Science. Besides these subjects, I have helped several people study for the major standardized tests including the SAT, ACT, GRE, and ASVAB.
What makes me qualified to be the best tutor for you?
BS Mechanical Engineering
SUBJECTS TAUGHT IN MATH
- Algebra I and II
- Calculus - Differential, Integral and Multivariate
- Linear Algebra
- Differential Equations
SUBJECTS TAUGHT IN PHYSICS

I would love to help any of you who are having difficulties with any of these subjects. With my help, I will get you on top of any of these subjects quickly. I can show you the best way to learn them and to study them, things that you are most likely not getting taught in school. You will not be disappointed. Looking forward to meeting you. Hi prospective students,

My rate is negotiable.
Mark focused on AP Calculus primarily today and with this being the first meeting, he covered a significant amount of material. I feel I learned more from him in the short time spent than I did in 3-4 times as many hours in my regular class. Great tutor - looking forward to the next session.
Great at explaining the math concepts that were difficult for me to grasp at first in a thoroughly explained manner.
My son met with Mark and during his first lesson felt he had learned more from him than the two weeks of summer school. Thank you, Mark!
Mark thoroughly explained topics that needed to be covered to my son!!! I am very pleased. An "aha" moment occurred for my son.
Mark is effective because he is flexible in his schedule, versatile in the math and science topics he can cover, and extremely knowledgeable and patient with my son. Highly recommended for those who have the will to focus and try hard in the subjects they need help with!
I worked with Mark a couple of weeks before my second SAT and ACT to help boost my math scores. He was a great tutor to work with! Mark taught me many strategies to quickly go through the more challenging math questions, and explained it to me in a way that helped me understand better. I felt more confident going into my SAT, and approached problems that I would have skipped before.
Mark is very knowledgeable and easy to work with, but above all, Mark is genuinely interested in seeing me succeed. I highly recommend him.
We hired Mark to tutor our daughter two days before her second attempt at the GRE exam to try to get into Graduate school. Mark did a marathon with her - 6 dedicated hours to help bring up her math scores. He was patient, talked on her level, and kept her on task for the whole 6 hours. Great tutor, would definitely recommend him to others and wouldn't hesitate to hire him again. First tutor I've met who teaches out of the passion in his heart and his desire to see the student succeed rather than just for the money.
I began tutorials with Mark in the summer to prepare for college calculus and found that he was a great tutor. He definitely knew his material very well and is extremely intelligent but was still able to convey the material to myself in a way I could easily understand. He was flexible with his schedule and was willing to work with me every weekend. On top of that, he was willing to assign me problems and then work them out during the week and send me his work so I could compare it with my own. If you are struggling with math or just want to prepare for it, Mark is the tutor for you.
Extremely helpful and extremely dedicated to his students. Mark goes above and beyond and takes the time needed to explain concepts. Conversely, he does not spend a lot of time on the concepts understood by the student, instead focusing on the areas where the help is needed. His explanations are easy to understand and he makes the topic comprehensible. He is also very patient,approachable and friendly. We have referred several friends to Mark and they are likewise very pleased!
Mark is the perfect tutor. He instinctively knows when the student needs more background information and when a simpler explanation is sufficient. The confidence he has given my son in both his Calculus AP class and Physics AP class is priceless. I highly recommend Mark!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have programmed in C since 1997. I eventually transitioned to a C++ programmer in the last 12 years, but C++ subsumes C. If one is a proficient C++ programmer, then one can definitely do C. This is how I am with C++ and C.
I have programmed in C++ both in school and professionally since the year 2000. My Master's thesis in Physics was based on a C++ program used to perform Green Function Monte Carlo on a quantum fluid. My current Ph.D. Physics research is also based on an objected-oriented C++ program that I created with a carefully crafted object-oriented design using classes, inheritance, and polymorphism. I am definitely proficient in programming in C++.
I have programmed in C and C++ professionally and as a student for the last 12 years. I am a computational and theoretical physicist, so most of my research deals with applying theory in the form of computational models which I do in the form of object-oriented C++ codes using XML input files and Boost mathematical libraries. I am very knowledgeable about C, C++ and computer programming in general and would love to tutor these subjects as well. Plus I am already approved on this system to tutor C and C++. I can likewise tutor general computer programming.
I am a professional theoretical physicist. Physics is full of differential equations: Newton's Second Law, Maxwell's Equations of Electromagnetic Theory, Legendre's differential equation, Bessel's differential equation, Laplace's equation, the wave equation, Schrodinger's equation in Quantum Mechanics, etc. I am very proficient in using and solving differential equations. Furthermore, I have taken Differential Equations in my undergraduate education and received an A grade in the course.
I am a professional theoretical physicist who deals with Linear Algebra throughout Physics, including performing coordinate transformations, using and manipulating vectors, manipulating and using matrices and tensors, and using eigenvalues. I also completed a course on Linear Algebra as an Undergraduate and received an A. Furthermore, in the past I taught Linear Algebra.
I have been an avid user of Mathematica since about 1993 both academically and professionally. I have used Mathematica to perform calculus, algebra, linear algebra, and physics. I have also programmed in the Mathematica programming language. I would consider myself an expert in Mathematica.
I have a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis and I have professionally worked in Mechanical Engineering problems for 6+ years in my career.
I am already employed professionally as a theoretical physicist with a major defense contractor. I have a B.S. in Physics, a B.A. in Mathematics, a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, an M.S. in Physics and a Ph.D. in Physics.
