"My name is Marcus. I attended the University of Texas at Austin, where I studied Engineering and Geoscience, and ultimately earned a B.S. in Engineering. I have 10 years of experience tutoring Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry for Austin Community College, primarily in person, and recently online as well. There, I have had the privilege of working with all ages, from high school-aged to Seniors. Outside of ACC, I have also tutored students privately for about five years, both in person and online.

I am committed to helping students in the foundational subjects of Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. When working one-on-one with a student, I do my best to answer all questions and explain with examples. I encourage repetition with subtle differences to enable the student to step back and grasp the overall concept and see the problem for what it is. In the spirit of building confidence and improving test scores, I try to identify points of weakness that might be holding the student back and coach the student to be mindful of those areas. I encourage students to refine their understanding by learning to formulate questions, to practice thinking critically, and form sustainable study habits.

Part of the joy I find from tutoring is in helping students overcome their misunderstandings, learn the material, move beyond any doubts that they can do it, and ultimately see them exceed their expectations. My goal is to teach others how to teach themselves. In my opinion, the best-case scenario is when a student contacts me simply to show off their A+ on an exam and tell me they don't need me anymore.

If math is holding you back, don’t let it. Get in front of the struggle now by building your educational future knowledge on a strong foundation. If you are interested in my services, don't hesitate to contact me. Let’s discuss how I can help, then we can schedule a session to get started. Then come prepared with the course material and an eagerness to grow." less...
