About Mark

Hello, my name is Mark. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a B.S. in Physics and Astronomy. I have tutoring experience in Latin vocabulary, syntax and grammar in reading, writing and oral form. The student I tutored was placed in an advanced Latin class when he enrolled in school the following year.

I've had a passion for astronomy since childhood. I'm fascinated by extrasolar planets, astrobiology and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, to the point where I've been inspired to begin my own sci-fi series. If any student has a similar passion for astronomy, I would be pleased to help you cultivate a love and knowledge of this awe-inspiring science.

Perhaps the most valuable lesson I learned from my first experience as a tutor was that the benefits were mutual. While the student's Latin proficiency was being honed, my own proficiency in the language was being reinforced as well. I hope to provide the same benefit to any student who is looking to excel.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I am competent in algebra concepts and problem-solving techniques and would be happy to help your student gain a greater understanding of them.

Astronomy

Astronomy has been my lifelong passion, to the point where I obtained a B.S. degree in physics & astronomy. I am fascinated by the prospects of other worlds and alien intelligences and would love to work on the search for extrasolar planets, SETI, and/or a NASA robotic mission to an outer moon of our solar system. I hope to inspire this same awe of the universe in others.

Bible Studies

I attended a private Christian school (K-12) that placed strong emphasis on Bible study/knowledge and daily application. My experience with Bible-oriented classes is extensive, ranging from Christian Studies to Spiritual Disciplines to Apologetics. I regularly attended a weekly Bible study during my college career; I have read the Bible from cover to cover and study it daily.

Geology

Geology is one of my secondary passions after astronomy. I would be pleased to work to improve students' comprehension of geology and its related subjects, from plate tectonics to volcanology to the structure of the Earth's interior.

Physics

I took a Conceptual Physics class and an AP Physics class in high school, and majored in Physics & Astronomy during college. My extensive education in this field allows me to see the world around me through the lens of physics. I would be pleased to provide others with this same perspective, to help them see how physics relates to our everyday lives.

Spanish

I took four years of Spanish in high school and one year in college. I can help students with Spanish vocabulary, syntax and grammar in reading, writing and oral form.

Great kickoff — My son had his first session with Mark and it went great. Mark did a very nice job explaining to my son the objectives and how he could help him improve his math and language art skills. The connection was a success as my son was against using a tutor but after working with Mark he felt it would help him and he enjoyed it. Great start! ...
