Hi! My name is Mark Cowett--just call me Mark.
While attending business school at Yale last year, I had the distinct pleasure of teaching 36 students in an undergraduate class. I realized then how much I love teaching. Having tutored many other students before, I knew I wanted to continue tutoring in the future. I have helped many students study for the GMAT and in numerous cases, their test scores have gone up by 50, 100, and in one case, even 200 points.
While I've taught a lot of classes, I love math more than any other subject, and look forward to helping you increase your Quant score on the GMAT.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My biggest concern, other than your score improvement, is availability--I want your performance to improve, and I will make myself as available as possible in order to accommodate your needs.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
A typical first session would include a discussion of your thoughts on the GMAT: including when you plan on taking it, what your particular concerns are (in terms of test material), and most importantly, a discussion on how you learn best. I want to make sure you are being taught in a way that helps you learn as much as possible. We will then go into the test content itself--enabling us to determine what YOU want to focus on most.
