"Hi I'm Marcus! I am originally from Los Angeles but I now live in Cleveland next to beautiful Lake Eerie. In my free time I like to cook (especially Persian and Turkish food!), hike, fence, play video games, and take my cat for walks (yes! really!). I'm a professional teacher with an MA in TESOL and over three years of professional language teaching experience at universities, non-profits, and private language schools. I'm not just a teacher, but also a learner. I've studied Turkish and Mongolian and have a wide variety of academic interests such as history, literature, and political philosophy.

My teaching style is highly personalized and follows modern pedagogical practices to suit your needs as a learner. I try to build confidence in my learners through critical thinking skills and reflective practice. Rather than explicit instruction, I prefer to guide the student critically so they may come to their own conclusions and compare their answers to the standard and thereby build meaning.

I specialize in academic English, general English, American culture, pronunciation, and literacy development. I've taught in a wide variety of contexts and with a wide variety of students over the course of my career, from beginners with little to no experience with formal education to graduate students.

I have also taken several courses in online education and am fully prepared to offer high quality distance learning.

Learning must center around the student's needs, context, learning style, and goals. So I welcome any resources, tools, comments, and suggestions from the student so I can make sure they're getting what they need from their education." less...
