MeriEducation has been a dream job for me. Math is my favorite subject, and I really enjoy teaching. I've naturally always had the patience for teaching too. Most people see going into work as a hassle, but I feel lucky that my job is something that I genuinely am rewarded for every day my students learn and improve. I'm also passionate about snowboarding. I'm currently the college ambassador at UCI for Mountain High and have had a season pass there for years. You'll see me riding during the season pretty much weekly! I also love riding Bear Mountain for its awesome park, and I grew up riding Snow Summit and Snow Valley.
What do they say about me?
"Marcus is an amazing tutor. I've studied before all of my tests with him and he has been thorough in helping me prepare. He helps me understand where I might have a problem and diagnose it. He always treats my weaknesses kindly and politely. We always finish the required work early and spend the rest of the time understanding tougher questions that may be on the test. They typically show up and I am prepared to tackle them."
"He was very enthusiastic on everything that we talked about and learned, and also made sure that I knew everything and went over main concepts more than one to keep me remembering main concepts"
What is your teaching style?
I have a knack for being able to read people when I'm teaching. Watching how my students react as I'm explaining different things, I'm able to piece together how THEY are rationalizing a problem. This allows me to explain things IN THEIR TERMS so that they can easily piece together the concepts and see the full picture!
