I consider myself unconventional. I wasn't born to be the smart kid, but I was born to be the kid with drive, passion and dedication. I payed for my private school education during high school and took the 8 year track to receive my Bachelors in Retail Marketing. School was important to me because I was the only one who had something to lose or gain from it. I also knew what it is like to want to understand something, but you just can't wrap your head around it. I was amazingly blessed to hav... ... More
"Social Studies Teacher"
As a Social Studies Teacher, I have had the opportunity to work with many students of varying ages and learning styles. Many of these classes, that I taught, were built from the ground up. This has given me the ability to adapt and amend these lessons based on my student's individual needs. The most rewarding part of being flexible, within my lesson plans, is when the students make the connection and understand the material. As an educator, I pride myself on making connections with my st... ... More
"Tutor For Various Subjects, Specializing in English Skills"
I have a bachelor's degree in English, and I've been tutoring on and off for years. My students have ranged in age from elementary school to college. I have written cookbooks and had a personal recipe put into the menu at a restaurant. I can translate complicated cooking terms into simple English.
Additionally, I've successfully helped people with a wide variety of subjects, from math and English skills to acting and sewing. Everyone has a different learning style, and my success lies in ... ... More
"English Language Lover"
Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to play teacher. I always enjoyed going to school, helping fellow students, and learning. I went to business school directly out of high school and began working in administrative roles that matched my studies. I always longed to be a teacher, but life took me on less traditional paths. I feel that in all of my roles as administrative assistant, business owner, assistant manager, coffee roastmaster, assistant teacher, sales representative, executive rec... ... More
"An experienced elementary school educator"
I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I have experience in all aspects of teaching. My experience as a 3rd grade teacher, a Special Educator and lots of tutoring with my students is what I have to offer as an educator.
My absolutely favorite thing about teaching is watching a child have a light bulb go off in their head about a concept and really understanding the meaning behind the learning.
I have taught elementary math for a few years and my confidence is in teaching var... ... More
Mark was contacted with less than 24 hour notice to meet with our son, a college student home on break and taking a summer Micro Econ course online. Initially, after connecting through the WyzAnt online system, Mark was identified as fitting the profile needed for the subject matter. Additionally, his response was quick and willing to meet the turn around time needed to review the material.
Mark made room in his schedule, stayed in communication both in email and by phone and confirmed a meeting place and time that worked for both of them. His attention to detail, patience with both the material and the student as well as his focus on a successful session were appreciated and valuable.
I would highly recommend Mark and would expect that given more appropriate time frames, he would be a great fit for any tutoring challenge!
