Yesterday, all I heard from my daughter was, "I don't understand a thing" and "I'm clueless". After our second tutoring session today in Chemistry, I'm hearing, "I love this", "I'm so happy" and "I'm so excited". As a parent, it makes me very happy to see such a positive attitude over a subject that she has struggled with for the entire school year. It also makes me realize that if I had stepped up sooner and got her the help she needed, her grades might not be where they are today. I have the utmost confidence in this tutor and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing help in Chemistry. He is patient, a great listener and simply put...he knows his stuff.
"Extremely Knowledgeable and Professional, Great Tutor!!"
Kristin from Fairfax Station, VA on 1/14/14
Dr. Gene is a phenomenal tutor. Extremely responsive and gives students tools outside their classrooms that help the student tackle the subject ie: a better textbook that breaks down subject matter. After every meeting, in the comments section, he was conscientious in making clear what goals were achieved in the session and what goals were still to be met. I really felt we got our money's worth when we found him. Our son was more confident and better prepared for the subject matter which was half the battle. Thank you Dr. Gene!!

Gene has done a good job working with my high school son in Biology and Chemistry. I recommend Gene for tutoring.
"Patient, knowledgeable, practical, and motivational."
Barbara from Burke, VA on 1/22/13
Gene has made all the difference to my son's being able to understand his AP chemistry. Gene seems to be able to communicate the principles of chemistry in a way that my son is able to understand. Gene understands and can communicate and teach the mathematics behind the chemistry, which is often what is required to increase my son's comprehension of the material. My son's confidence and motivation has improved greatly since he has been working with Gene. Gene also possesses knowledge and a balance perspective regarding student courseloads; what is reasonable, and what is perhaps over-the-top. He has often lent a sympathetic ear to my frustrated teenager when it was most needed. Gene's counsel is sound, and he is willing to confer with me (the parent) when there is a genuine concern which needs to be addressed. I do not believe that I could ever find a better tutor; Gene is a perfect fit for my son and our family.
"Very nice gentleman and the kids really bonded."

Mr. Gene as we call him is a patient and kind gentleman that makes math fun and teaches important fundamentals that my elementary school kids really need. So far we are pleased with the professional services.

Thank you for making my son's life easy. He was very upset of not having a complete understanding of the AP Chemistry. Now with your tutoring. It been much easier for him to understand the concept.

My children are coming back from the lesson saying "We had a great time today!", and that's always good to hear. He's also very patient and knows how to pin-point a child's weakness, and therefore knows how to improve it! I really feel like my children will be at the top of their class in no time!
"Patient, Calm, Smart"
Charmaine from Burke, VA on 7/18/11
Gene is a patient, calm, knowledgeable tutor who helps my son with Algebra. We are very grateful for his nurturing nature as well as appreciate his depth of knowledge. He takes a student where is he is at without criticism and seeks to strengthen his students' capabilities.
"He Gave My Son the Tools He Needed to Hit His Target"
John from Bethesda, MD on 6/17/11
Gene made himself available on short notice and at odd times in order to give our son the help he needed to feel comfortable heading into the last few tests and the final exam in Chemistry. After a few body blows with low grades, our son had lost confidence. Gene was able to calm his concerns and get him back on track in order to finish solidly. I was particularly impressed by the way he gave my son steps to remember when facing any word problem. It's that sort of tool that really can make the difference.
"Tutor for Chemistry"
Dena from Waldorf, MD on 4/11/11
I was going to complain about the lateness of our session, but now I understand why he is so busy. My granddaughter was so happy and relieved to finally "get it" with Chemistry basics. He quickly accessed what level of aid she needed and proceeded to break it down so that she achieved that priceless EUREKA! moment. I am extremely pleased with Dr. L's work.
Janet from Burke, VA on 3/14/11
My son is currently struggling in algebra 1. After the first tutoring lesson, my son took a major algebra 1 test. His grade increased by 14 points from the previous test he had taken. The teacher told my son that he had the highest test grade in the whole class. My son states that Gene L. is patient and explains the algebra 1 concepts to him. We are very fortunate to have Gene L. for our tutor.
"Very patient anticipates student's needs"
Karen from Alexandria, VA on 3/13/11
Gene is a very good tutor who works with the student at their own pace and tries to anticipate the needs of the student as she prepares for a very difficult exam.
