Hello everyone! Just to quickly introduce myself, my name is Marco and I am currently on track to graduating this Spring 2023 with a major in Psychological Sciences and a double minor in Biological Sciences and Business Management! As someone who grew up with little to no academic assistance, I know just how crucial it is to have someone to support students in their academic endeavors! For that reason, I have been tutoring since 2016 in a variety of subjects and for a variety of grade levels! For all my sessions, I like to personalize it to the goals of the student and parent and I am not afraid to spend an entire session working out one homework problem if it means that the student will feel academically ready and ready to succeed! On my spare time I like going to the movies, watching tv shows on streaming platforms, golfing (not very good at it, but it’s fun nonetheless!), and hanging out with friends and family! Furthermore, I am also involved in research at my university that aims to explore the importance of parent-child relationships and how strong relationships can help predict child success!

Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
I currently participate in research at my university that aims to explore child-parent relationships and how they affect children as they transition into adulthood. Furthermore, my study also aims to increase mental well-being in community service providers. Every two months I also like to donate blood to the UC Irvine Blood Donation Center and I donate platelets every once in a while as well.

Our 8 year old Triston enjoys his tutoring time with Marcos. Ever since he started meeting with Marcos, Triston has improved in his reading and math skills. Marcos is great with Triston, he keeps Triston engaged and focus when tutoring. Marcos is always prepared to teach Triston. He is flexible and is willing to work with our schedule or requests. So far we see the difference in our son’s progress. We recommend Marcos as a tutor. He is great with kids and adults.
