ExperienceELEMENTARY AND HIGH SCHOOL MATH - Bilingual Math Tutor
Put simply, I know this job inside and out. With many years of tutoring experience, there is no question whether I will be efficient in helping your children improve their grades. I can bring out the best in every student.
I have and continue to tutor dozens of students, French and English, on a regular basis. I have tutored students from many different High School (e.g. College Jean-Eudes, École Marie-Clarac, Vincent Massey Collegiate, St-Georges School of Montreal, Laurier MacDonald High School, Lester B. Pearson High School, Rosemount High School, John F. Kennedy High School, etc.). I have many available references upon request.
Most of my clientele was built via recommendations of parents, students, or ex-students that all benefitted from my services. I am proud to say that there is a success story associated with each individual who decided to make a commitment to use my tutoring services.
I believe the reason for my success is that can adapt to any situation. I thrive in a fluctuating environment and I transform unexpected obstacles into stepping stones for achievements.
Feel free to contact me for additional information. I would be glad to meet you and answer any of your questions or concerns.
30$/hour (possibility to travel)
Note: I offer group sessions if necessary. Certain students enjoy tutoring sessions with one of their classmates.
HobbiesI am a 27 year old McGill graduate of Italian descent. Having grown up in the east end of Montreal, I attended French Schools until Grade 11. My ability to function in both French and English has permitted me to accommodate a large amount of students from different backgrounds.
I am considered to be "fun". I believe that we are way more productive when we are working with people with which we enjoy spending time. When a situation gets tough with the material, a touch of humour can definitely save the day. I work enthusiastically, I love what I do, and it’s contagious
I communicate extensively. Good, bad or ugly, I believe that open communication is the most important factor to reach an efficient tutoring session.
I also take interest in my students interests and hobbies. Certain students have even kept in touch with me after graduation, and grateful parents consider me to be a friend.
My personal interests are mainly sports, especially hockey. I also enjoy listening to music and playing musical instruments from time to time.

Before hiring Marco, my daughter was having a very difficult time in her Mathematics 426 course. She was extremely discouraged and easily frustrated by her lack of understanding. After her first session with Marco, I began to notice a change in her attitude towards math. She told me that Marco provided her with numerous useful tricks to help her grasp the difficult concepts shown in her textbook. With every session, my daughter was becoming more comfortable with the subject matter and her confidence was visibly increasing as well. This was all thanks to Marco’s professionalism and incredible patience. My daughter always looked forward to her tutoring sessions because she said that the way she was taught by Marco was better than any other teacher she’s ever had. He would provide her with relevant examples which she could easily identify with and was always enthusiastic. I will never forget the look on her face when she came home with her first math test since working with Marco …she got 94%! As a mother, I was extremely proud of my daughter and she was beyond thrilled to show her tutor how well she had done. Marco worked with us for 3 months and helped my daughter go from failing Mathematics 426 to not only passing it, but also starting her final year of high school in Mathematics 536! Marco is the best tutor out there. He really goes above and beyond to make sure that his students succeed. He is fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. He makes his students comfortable and finds different ways to connect with them while always remaining extremely respectful. I highly recommend anybody who is reading this to choose Marco over any other tutor. You will not regret it. Marco- Thank you once again for everything you’ve done for my daughter. I appreciate it immensely and will definitely not hesitate to call for your services again in the future. Best of luck to you!
Before meeting Marco, I was flunking terribly in secondary 5 Math. I was failing every test, homework and worksheets. I was never able to follow the teachers procedure while she was teaching. I would try my very best in the class but yet nothing came out of me to pass the course. When the exam was approaching, I knew 100% that I was going to fail the exam and God knows where to bring me after High School. So I ended up finding Marco on this site. I didn't understand any material through out the whole year. I've going to Marco for the past month and a half. The way he was showing and teaching me was incredible! I understood everything he taught me. I was really poor in Math this year but after Marco reviewing everything with me through out the whole year in just a month and a half( For at least 2-5 hours every day) , I'm very interested in going into college. I was planing on going to Trade School but I still wasn't sure what course in trade. But now I changed my mind and planning on going to College for Most probably Accounting or something that has to do with Math. I really hated Math this year from the way I was flunking. But now that Marco has taught me well, I love Math. This exam that I took in June was going to be like I was writing an exam in Pilot school if I haven't found Marco. Now that Marco set me up straight in Math, that exam was like going back into elementary School. Marco saved me from flunking High School. That Math Exam was very important for me because if I haven't passed that exam, I would of really been History... But now that I Bomb that Exam, I feel extremely Happy. I would of gone into a serious nervous breakdown if I haven't passed that Exam. I was very nervous for that exam before I met Marco. Now that Marco taught me very well, I wasn't scared one bit for that exam. I knew what I was doing., every tricks that he showed me and everything he taught me was on the exam. I left Both Math exams with my head up high and was very sure that I passed that Exam. I would like to say Thank you very much Marco! I don't know how many more times I gotta say Thank you. Ask God for how many more times I gotta Thank you!
Marco has been extremely helpful and professional while tutoring me in STATS (PSYC 315/2 Statistical Analysis I Concordia). I have since decided to use the time I would usually be in class to profit from his tutoring as I find his teaching method superior to that of my prof's. He has clear notes and easily associates the material with examples that explain the broad concept behind the details, helping the student understand why they are using the material instead of just applying it. I highly recommend him if you are struggling with STATS or to increase your grade.
Marco is an OUTSTANDING tutor. He tutored me in Probability and Statistics and I found him to be extremely enthusiastic about the course and helped me understand the subject much better, raising my grades significantly. He is very knowledgeable, making the difficult problems given less complicated. He also provided a lot of different practice exercises as well as gave many amazing tricks that made it easier to write exams. I would really recommend him to those who need help with this subject. He helped me incredibly and I would highly recommend him. A+ tutor!
