Jason S. Marks, J.D., President
A native of St. Louis, Jason Marks always exhibited a passion for knowledge and a gift to impart that knowledge to others. Having been “kicked up” several grades in math early in elementary school, he tutored junior high school students in algebra using an instructional book he wrote as a project in sixth grade. The recipient of a National Merit Scholarship, Mr. Marks attended the Honors College at the University of Missouri, graduating magna cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science and Sociology and minors in economics and religious studies and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi. Mr. Marks attended Washington University School of Law as a Scholar of Law Award recipient. After graduation, Mr. Marks became a member of the Missouri Bar and practiced in the fields of criminal defense, civil liberties, appellate and family law. He has authored numerous law review articles, including an oft-cited piece on affirmative action in higher education. Mr. Marks joined Mackler & Associates as its Director of Operations, principal tutor and instructor in 2000, where he has worked successfully with hundreds of students, from elementary school children to young men and women in graduate school. Mr. Marks has a unique ability to teach a broad range of subjects, from explaining fractions or the comma to a third grader to calculus or German existentialism to college students, and to do so in a manner that caters to the individual learning style of the student. Together with Dr. Mackler, he has developed an adaptive, dynamic approach to teaching that produces amazing outcomes and inspires students to feel that they can achieve their academic and career goals.
