Lives in Princeton, NJ, USA

Mark graduated from the University of Chicago in 2009 with a B.A. in history. Serving after graduation in the United States Marine Corps, he began studying for the GMAT while deployed in Iraq. Returning home in 2012, he took the GMAT and scored a 770, placing him in the 99th percentile of all test-takers.

Later on, Mark was accepted to Yale University’s full-time MBA program with a full scholarship. He attended Yale and graduated in 2015, after which he worked for a Fortune 75 financial services company while remaining in the Marine Corps Reserves. In 2017, he deployed to Afghanistan, during which he was accepted to Princeton University to pursue a Master’s degree in Public Policy, where he is currently enjoying a graduate-student lifestyle once again.

Mark has experience teaching both in and out of the classroom; at Yale, he led two undergraduate history discussion sections, while his military service led him to teach martial arts to other Marines. His favorite aspect of teaching is providing highly unique and individually-tailored problem-solving approaches for students looking to master a test.

When Mark is not teaching others or studying himself, he likes working on a neighborhood farm in New Jersey, playing with his German Shepherd, and getting completely lost in the Princeton University library book stacks.
