Charles has a somewhat unusual but uniquely qualified background for a tutor. Armed with a BFA degree in Drama from The Juilliard School, Charles didn't have much of a math background and had never taken the SAT or ACT before he decided to pursue a business degree and was forced to confront his test-taking nerves by studying for the GMAT. After endless hours on the math portion of Khan Academy, Charles scored in the 96th Percentile and is now an MBA candidate at NYU Stern. Charles has also taken courses in History, Politics, and Mathematics for college credit from Harvard and UC Berkeley to help round out his undergrad coursework, maintaining a 3.9 GPA in the process. Charles grew up in Minnesota but traveled extensively overseas, living in England, Brazil, China, and Japan. He is married and lives in Brooklyn.

As an actor, Charles has appeared in over twenty television shows and films as well as over a dozen plays on Broadway and off. Some of his favorites include playing Captain Rockland in Season 2 of House of Cards and Antonio in Twelfth Night at Shakespeare in the Park.

Mark graduated Cum Laude from Duke University’s Engineering School with a double major Electrical/Biomedical Engineering degree and a minor in French; then graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Tulane Graduate School of Science and Engineering, where he earned two Masters in Engineering (Biomedical and Electrical), plus an “ABD” (all but dissertation) towards a PhD in Robotics Engineering. Mark began his career designing robots for factory automation with a specialty in computer vision with Texas Instruments. Subsequently, Mark graduated Summa Cum Laude from Columbia Business School and has worked extensively on both Wall Street and “Silicon Alley.” He has straddled the business and technical worlds, serving in lead management and sales roles with top Investment banking firms like JPMorgan and Bear Stearns, and with technical firms on the leading edge of Big Data and defense contracting. A serial entrepreneur, Mark collaborates with multiple small start-ups, including Safety 4 Kids, a media company which promotes safety and wellness for young children. Patient and friendly, Mark empowers students by making learning fun. He believes that everyone has an “inner genius” that just takes the right technique to unlock. Specializing in the sciences and math, Mark facilitates the “ah-ha” moment that transforms the explanation of a single problem into a solution framework that can be easily applied to other problems. In addition to being an aspiring app- and web-developer, Mark enjoys playing the piano, tennis and biking.
