B.A. German and Environmental Studies, Princeton University
5 years tutoring the SAT, ACT, PSAT, and French.
Marc is a recent honors graduate from Princeton University, where he studied philosophy, German, and environmental science and was awarded multiple prizes for his academic performance (Mary Cunningham Humphreys Junior Prize, Victor Lange Senior Thesis Prize). Marc’s senior thesis advisor described his work as “extraordinary, one of the two best theses he has read in [his] 37 years at Princeton.” With over five years of tutoring experience, Marc has worked with students in a variety of settings and subjects: both general academic (English, French, mathematics) and test prep (ACT, SAT, SAT Subject tests, and TOEFL).
Marc completed his high school education in his home country of France. He prepared for the Scientific Baccalaureate with the International option, obtaining a total score of 18.8/20 in total (the national average is 12.5), with perfect scores in math and English. Having applied to U.S. colleges from abroad, Marc knows how crucial it is for students of all backgrounds, and especially international students, to have excellent, passionate, and dedicated tutors to support them through this challenging process. He is convinced that what determines a tutoring program’s success is not only academic and pedagogical excellence, but the quality of the relationship between tutor and student.
