Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mr Mark S.
Gender: Male   Age: 41-50
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

My background is in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, and Mathematics. I have a passion for the physical and mathematical sciences, and I enjoy helping students learn and master these topics, which are notoriously difficult for first-time learners. I am a New York State certified Chemistry teacher, and am currently teaching Honors Chemistry and Regents Chemistry classes. Last year, 91% of my students passed the New York State Chemistry Regents exam, with 40% scoring higher than a 90. I am available to assist students studying Chemistry in high school up to the undergraduate level. Feel free to contact me anytime, although evenings are best.
