Mark has been interested in languages since he was very young. After obtaining his initial degree in French with a minor in linguistics, he moved to South Korea, where he taught English as a foreign language to students of varying ages and skill levels. After doing this for a year, he decided that he found teaching to be very rewarding, so he pursued and completed a degree in education. Shortly afterwards, he obtained a diploma in teaching English as a second language, thus enabling him to continue doing what he enjoyed so much in South Korea. He has been teaching English for academic purposes at his alma mater since 2008.

In his spare time, Mark enjoys playing pool, tasting different types of food, and keeping up-to-date with the latest Internet trends. He particularly likes finding ways to incorporate these trends into the classroom.
