I studied Engineering and Computer Science at UCLA, then worked full-time for Citibank as a Programmer and Designer for over 25 years before becoming an independent contractor.

At my job I taught programming classes and mentored new employees. I traveled to several countries to install software and train users, so I have worked with a variety of cultures and personalities.

I am patient and strive to see the world from the viewpoint of the student, and I never talk down to anyone.

Mark was exactly what we?d hoped for in a tutor. He knows his subject matter well and was able to explain it clearly to a student who was encountering it for the first time. Thank you Mark.
- Kirk C. from Los Angeles, CA
After just a couple of lessons with Mark, my daughter got a 100 on a quiz in her AP Computer Science class. Mark is very thoughtful about his approach to planning his tutoring sessions and clearly wants my daughter to be the best she can be.
- Kaye K. from Los Angeles, CA
Mark is worth every dime spent. He is very patient with you and also very knowledgeable about the subject he is tutoring. I would highly recommend him for future sessions. He helped me in the areas I was struggling in and guided me threw the lessons allowing me do do the work on my own with assistance when needed. He was exactly what I was looking for.

Mark was very helpful preparing my son for his AP Java exam. Mark reviewed relevant books and practice tests, and made great recommendations. He helped my son cover the material he missed on the practice exam, and helped him think about the word problems on the test.
- Audrey P. from Los Angeles, CA
I had never coded before taking Pic10A at UCLA and I truly would not have gotten through this class if it wasn't for Mark. He has so much experience in this subject and knew the class curriculum very well. He had his own material and practice exams to help me study for the final as well. He was also fast to respond whenever I needed help outside of sessions. Would highly recommend!
- Vienna C. from Los Angeles, CA
Mark helped me with my PIC20A (Java) course at UCLA. I was amazed by the work he put in to both prior to and during our tutoring sessions, both on explaining lecture material and covering any homework problems I was confused about. Most importantly, I gained more and more confidence in working on my own and understanding how to solve problems. I would recommend Mark to anyone who feels stuck or confused. Trust me, his hourly rate is very much worth the time and help you will receive!
- Matt F. from San Gabriel, CA
Mark is extremely knowledgeable and responsible. This is my first quarter taking a programming class, and Mark really helps me understand the material thoroughly. You can tell he put a lot of effort into preparing the lesson. Even after the tutoring session was over, Mark patiently answered my questions. I have never imagined I could learn this much in a programming class. Thank you, Mark!
- Lujia Z. from Los Angeles, CA
Mark is a wonderful tutor. He is thorough and patient. He diligently covers every concept and cares about his student. He is very flexible and deals with changes in our schedule which makes him very easy to work with. Our children like working with him and advancing their programming knowledge. I would highly recommend him.
- Alex R. from Los Angeles, CA
Mark tutored me in C++ for PIC10A. Before the final, he was able to completely and effectively answer my questions. He provided clarity on all the topics that were unclear from class, and he worked through practice problems for the final step by step. Mark is an excellent tutor, who will both patiently answer all questions and explicitly highlight the most important information. He creates an environment that makes students feel comfortable asking questions and working through mistakes.

If you're looking for a tutor for computer science look no further. Mark is the guy. He helped me out with my CS 31 project and did a great job explaining concepts I had a really hard time grasping. He is well worth the money and on top of it all he's a really nice guy who genuinely wants his students to succeed. 6 stars and 8 thumbs up.
- Connor A. from Los Angeles, CA
Mark was instrumental in my finishing this assignment. He has years of experience with C++ and was incredibly thorough. I am struggling with PIC10B and PIC 20A this quarter at UCLA and with his help it is seeming a lot more manageable. Thanks for all the assistance, Mark!
- Adam S. from Venice, CA
After his first lesson, my son was very happy with Mark's breadth of knowledge and ability to explain the material. He will be taking more lessons in the near future.
- Ed R. from Glenview, IL
I had just started my project for CS32 a few hours before the deadline, and Mark came very prepared with prior knowledge of the project. Highly recommended for UCLA students. Fast, clear, and enthusiastic.
- Cao X. from Los Angeles, CA
Mark has been a great resource for my java course at UCLA. He has helped me with various class projects and has been instrumental to my success in the course. He is very accommodating with my schedule and is always eager to help. He makes sure I understand each concept before moving on and complements me when I do something well. I would definitely recommend Mark to any student struggling with a programming course!
- Kate C. from Los Angeles, CA
I was very far behind in my class CS31 after I got sick, and Mark was great at helping me catch up an explain things. I was worried about failing the class but now I think I will pass, with Mark's help! I am glad I had tutoring sessions with Mark. He is very good in teaching computer Science.
- Santha R. from Los Angeles, CA
We went over C code, focusing on inputs/arrays/and functions. He explained everything extremely well and was very easy to follow along. One of the best tutors I have ever had! Highly recommend!
- Denzel P. from Sherman Oaks, CA
My son had three sessions with Mark to prepare for AP Computer Science. He felt very prepared when class started and now he wants additional tutoring to learn more from Mark. My son was already interested in computer programming, but Mark sparked an even greater interest and has him asking for more time to go above and beyond what is required in class!
- Maria C. from Sherman Oaks, CA
I took CS 31 at UCLA during summer. Mark helped me understand the material, work on the projects and review for the test. He was very thorough and patient, highly recommend him.
- German G. from Los Angeles, CA
Mark is an amazing tutor. I am a Harvard student taking cs50 online and his tutoring has definitely made the class manageable and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor.
- Stacy B. from Independence, LA
Mark is an outstanding computer science tutor. I am taking the Harvard online course CS50 and he has been invaluable in guiding me through challenging areas and explaining difficult concepts. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, kind and reliable. For anyone interested in Harvard's CS50 course (or related courses) you could not do any better than with Mark's guidance. A+++
