##### About Harry

I have been teaching math and martial arts for over 20 years now and I am very good at it. I use several dozen tools and tricks to help students understand faster and more thoroughly. The most common compliment I get is how fascinating/interesting/mind-boggling it is when they see me get someone, who has no idea what they are reading, to finally understand it, without making them do hundreds of problems and thus wasting both your time and your money. I love seeing students smile after they understand something that they thought there was NO way they were ever going to understand.

Back at UCLA Freshman year in 1995-1996, I scored a perfect 100% in calculus after being the first one to finish the test and leave the final exam hall in 30 minutes (it was a 2 hour test). Then my room mates and other friends started to ask me to help them get through their college math classes. That's when I knew that I probably had a talent or something for teaching math. Since then, I've had two decades to hone my teaching skills and get even better at getting others to understand what they are learning. After UCLA, I went on to complete law school at West Coast School of Law and became a Contracts professor after graduation. During my tenure as Professor of Contracts, I felt that there needed to be more engagement with the students because most of our teaching sessions were done over the phone or in online chat rooms. That was when I started tutoring friends and family friends in the areas of math, English and pre-law subjects.

Send me any questions you may have and schedule a lesson with me. I especially love the hard cases. If you are failing or getting a D, then I can usually turn that around 99% of the time, which is about 59% higher than the statistical probability of saving someone at that point. To date, I have helped over a dozen students recover from a D or F up towards the high C to A+ range in all levels of math from junior high to college. I'm very experienced at finding out what you missed or perhaps 'thought' you understood earlier but accidentally skipped over. I have found that the majority of the difficulties in study and progress lies in moving too fast and skipping things one doesn't understand. It is at that point that I can help students with a step-by-step approach that usually goes something like this:

1. Find where the student is confused.

2. Find where the student believes he/she understands everything before that point of confusion.

3. Find the REAL location of difficulty for the student and help him/her understand that.

4. Help the student zoom through and fully understand everything after that point.

Another major difference in the way I teach/tutor is that I actually care about you having the ability to 'apply' the data that you learn. Only then can one truly ace a test because, to be honest, scoring high on an exam or homework assignment will come as a given if one already understands everything there is to understand about the material and one can apply that data to life. 9 times out of 10 I have found the student actually starts having fun with his/her studies. Can you imagine that? What if you actually enjoyed what you were learning!?
