Dear Students and Parents,
We write with deepest regrets to announce the recent passing of Professor Matthew Marx, founder and co-owner of Tutoring By A College Professor.
Professor Marx was known as a gentle and approachable educator whose unique patience and pride in his students instilled them with the confidence needed to succeed—whether it was on class subjects, college entrance exams, or scholarship and admissions essays. Professor Marx founded Tutoring By A College Professor 12 years ago with the belief that each student could benefit from individualized educational support. Professor Marx helped students realize that hard work, preparation, and a great attitude would help them achieve their goals. Tutoring By A College Professor is recognized throughout Central Ohio and across the country for helping students achieve higher test scores, stronger grades, and greater confidence.
Our business will continue Professor Marx’s legacy by meeting the academic needs of your student. This is made possible with our incredible faculty of 50+ test prep and subject matter experts, hand-picked educators who share the core values Professor Marx stood for. Every ACT/SAT/PSAT tutor has been directly trained by Professor Marx to individually help your student meet and exceed their goals. We also have a greater faculty of high school and college/university subject experts who will continue to help your students with their coursework.
Our family-run business continues to move forward through myself—his wife and co-owner—Leslie Marx. I will ensure that your student is paired with a devoted, knowledgeable tutor from our faculty. While we all face an insurmountable loss, please know that we are committed to give you the best educational and personal support possible.
Thank you very much for trusting Tutoring By A College Professor to support you and your student. Many have reached out asking what they can do to help our family and faculty during this time. Special thank you to Professor Marx’s dear friend, Dr. Nicole Kraft, for building a legacy fund in his honor. Please see below for more information.
