I'm a retired middle school Language Arts teacher who earned a bachelor's degree in Education and a master's degree in Public Administration. Although we have never met face-to-face, Mark Stewart and I have been Facebook friends for ten years. He may be the best-informed of my Facebook friends, and his commitments to mutual respect, compassion, and fairness are readily apparent in the content of his posts, all accompanied by his thoughtfully-composed and articulately-expressed explanatory texts. My conclusions about Mark Stewart are that he is an energetic and intelligent person who has an evolved view of and a caring approach toward his fellow humans.

I've known Mark for several years, and he is a person of integrity, honesty, and character. And he has a great sense of humor! He is a patient and kind human being, and I highly recommend him for anyone needing language tutoring!!!
Marks responses are well thought out, timely, and accurate. His skills and abilities match his enthusiasm and desire to help others. I offer this unsolicited recordation unequivocally.
I got to know Mark through friends online.
He is a Superprof in his ability to understand literature, refer to it accurately, and use it well in all manner of contexts. I feel I am in a good position to evaluate this as I have an Honours degree in literature myself.
I would recommend him because he is also remarkable for his caring, kindness and consistency. He pays attention, listens to others and responds to them in a manner I have not seen in anyone else I know. He is really special.
Mark and I have been corresponding daily on social media for nearly half a dozen years.
His writing style is consistently concise, direct, and to the point.
Those are the qualities that a teacher must have to teach language and writing skills to others.
Mark is articulate, well-informed and helpful. Always concerned about others and non-judgemental in his approach to life's adventures, if I needed his services for my children, I would not hesitate to engage him.
I had the opportunity to have Mark as a teacher and I can honestly say he is great. He is passionate about what he does and makes sure you get help when needed. A professional with a great attitude and personality.
