Mark is very good at going through the details step by step, which is really important for advanced math. He writes the problems out for me to use as a study aid. He is very good at explaining when I don't quite understand a problem; he can explain it in a different way than my professor so I get it. He's also good at reminding me how much I should be studying and helping me figure out what and how to study for a test. Since he used to teach, he has some insight on how a teacher might think and helps me focus on the important problems when it's time to do that last minute cramming for a test.

"A passionate and enthusiastic writer!"
As a writer with a due publication for my first novella, I can proudly say that my biggest passion lies with the literary art. I have been writing professionally for about two years, and I have only grown in the field since then. I attribute this talent to both my academic endeavors, and to my personal life.
However, although I myself am very much interested in the literary world, I notice that others are not always so enthusiastic for it; this can hinder ones ultimate capability. As a tu... ... More
