- Levels Taught:
- Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
I'm a state certified math teacher for 6-12. I have taught math, physical science, and life science for 4 years at the middle school level at a private school in Los Angeles.
I focus on making sure students understand the language of math. I incorporate quality note taking methods, as well as ensure students are solving problems with an organized step by step approach.
I also have an extensive science and engineering background knowledge both in-school and in practical application with 13 years of engineering experience in industry. I often connect the raw math concepts with their applications in secondary level science subjects like physics and chemistry.
For high school students, I always stress the key Algebra principles for the ACT and SAT.
For college students, I am able to cover differential and integral calculus, linear algebra, and statistics.
I can meet in person, but given the horrible LA traffic, I would prefer to conduct online sessions in which I can both answer specific questions and teach mini lessons as necessary.

- Teaching since:
I'm a former engineer turned math and science teacher. My Mechanical Engineering education is from Stanford and my masters in Engineering Management is from Milwaukee School of Engineering. I have over 6 years of teaching experience in public, charter, and private school classrooms. I have 2 years of experience working part-time at one of the top-tier professional tutoring centers in the nation which has trained me to teach subjects ranging from beginning reading to high school courses and SAT/ACT prep.
I can teach any math from K-college. I like to say "K thru Calc!"! I have a passion for learning and try my best to light the fire for learning in all of my students. When it comes to the nuts and bolts of math, that's the easy part, but I take it father and have fun with math through story telling, connection with language and with hands on applications (which can still be done online!).
Try me as a tutor and you will not be disappointed... : )
Mark is wonderful, so affable, brilliant and most of all patient! He has taught both my boys and their test scores and grades have improved exponentially!
He is amazing, we are so delighted and pleased to have him as a teacher and a mentor!
