I am a retired teacher who will work very hard for you! I teach students to think on a deeper level. I constantly look for feedback from tutoring students and make sure they leave a session knowing concepts! In addition I am a retired professional engineer and have extensive experience in all phases of engineering from my previous career.

Algebraic Confidence Boosting Tutor
Mr. Wayne was able to pin point my weaknesses and point me in the right direction for GREATNESS!!!! He explains the steps in detail that made me feel comfortable and eager to learn the math. I highly recommend Mr. Wayne for all your mathematical tutoring needs.

Very knowledgeable tutor
Wayne is working ahead this summer for Neal, who will be taking AP Calculus this August. He is very patient, calm and kind. Neal seems to really like him. So glad we found Wayne.

Explained Subject Matter Clearly
Wayne helped my son with his Algebra 3-4 homework. He understood the subject matter and was able to explain it clearly. Wayne identified one of my son's weaknesses, that he is able to do the math in his head but doesn't show his work. Wayne went over how to show all of the steps of the solution, and how to write out the formulas, so that credit for homework and tests could be obtained.

Excellent tutor!
We contacted Wayne to help my daughter with an online trigonometry course she needed to complete within a short period of time for her high school graduation requirement. He got her up to speed in two sessions, and she just recently completed her online final and passed the class! Wayne is very knowledgeable and effectively explained the concepts in a way that helped her understand enough to proceed with the remaining assignments and quizzes on her own. He was extremely understanding of the situation and willing to accommodate her schedule. I will certainly recommend him to others. Thank you, Wayne!

He Cares and He's Patient
We can always contact Wayne right away when we need Physics tutoring for our daughter. He returns the calls or emails fast and also tries to work with us regarding times and location. He is patient, he cares about the student needs and looks for different ways to help her understand. Our daughter's grades and her understanding of Physics has improved a lot. We definitely recommend him.

Great Tutor - Especially for an "Excelling" Student!
My son (a HS junior) has always been "highly achieving" in math and has been in gifted programs since the third grade. During his second semester of Calculus, we noticed he was starting to struggle a bit, not scoring as well on quizzes, tests and homework grades. In doing an internet search for tutors, we found Wayne at WyzAnt Tutoring. I sent an email to Wayne on a Friday afternoon and within an hour he had contacted me via email, then phone and we had sessions set up to begin the following Monday. My son was NOT on board about having a tutor and told us he was just "lazy" and that's why his grade was falling off. Wayne has been working with my son for 5 weeks now, his grade has improved, he feels more confident about the calculus concepts and his problem solving skills. In fact, after this week's session my son said, "I had a great tutoring session and I'm really GLAD that you found a tutor for me." He feels that he's been able to "get" the advanced concepts MUCH faster than in class or on his own! Money well spent!! I would highly recommend Wayne. He is prompt, courteous, knowledgeable AND knows how to get through to even kids who may be resistant to admitting they need help!! PS: Even our "high strung" dogs like him.

Outstanding Tutor with an Incredible Amount of Knowledge.
I contacted Wayne three months ago when I was looking for a math tutor for my high school freshman. He worked with my son over Christmas break in order to ensure he understood all of the math concepts for the class he was taking. In addition, to keep my son interested he introduced physics, calculus and a number of other topics to help my son understand what he was teaching. My son enjoys working with Wayne so much that he asks for me to have him come and tutor him before a test or project. He is very easy to reach, responds quickly to questions and is extremely knowledgeable. He has a very clear way to explain even very complex math problems. If you need help with math, he is amazing!

Good tutor for reviewing all levels of algebra!
After a 10+ year break from college (and 17 years after my last college algebra class), I went back and needed to take calculus. Due to the length of time since my last class, I needed to pass a placement test to enroll in it. I worked with Wayne from May to January, reviewing elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, college algebra and trigonometry, to refresh my very rusty skills. Wayne had textbooks to loan for every level (helpful as I was not taking the classes over). He also can help with using a graphing calculator if you use one. My experience was so much different than it was as a high school and college student first time around. I really felt like I understood what I was learning. Happily, my placement test score was more than adequate! I'm taking calculus now, and I intend to call on Wayne if I need help during the semester!

Great Tutor!
Mr. L. went through all of the chapters in my review book I needed help in and patiently explained to me the various concepts. While teaching he wrote down important points (which helped me study later), and he went through the sample problems with me. Sometimes he would also provide context to the problems we were doing, showing me where the Physics I was learning was seen in the world. Overall, Mr. L.'s teaching allowed me to take the AP Physics test with confidence and earn a great score on the SAT II Physics test. Physics B is scary because of the breadth of it---from mechanics to buoyancy to relativity to electricity and magnetism. With Wayne L.'s help, I was able to grasp all of the concepts. Most amazing of all, this was all done in a few months!
