About Laurence


Bio

I am a tutor with advanced degrees and years of experience, but what matters most to me is the students I teach.

I have experience with different grade-levels from middle school and high school to those taking college courses. I never give up until we create the success the student needs.

So many standardized tests are required these days – CAHSEE, PSAT, SAT I and SAT II subject tests, ACT and the many Advanced Placement tests [AP Literature, AP History, AP Chemistry, AP Math, AP Physics,...

I am a tutor with advanced degrees and years of experience, but what matters most to me is the students I teach.

I have experience with different grade-levels from middle school and high school to those taking college courses. I never give up until we create the success the student needs.

So many standardized tests are required these days – CAHSEE, PSAT, SAT I and SAT II subject tests, ACT and the many Advanced Placement tests [AP Literature, AP History, AP Chemistry, AP Math, AP Physics, AP Languages ... and more]. Success on each of these tests needs solid work in class, of course, and a focused and planned preparation.

I know that each student has different specific needs for review and support, so I always begin with a practice test as a diagnostic and use the results of that test as the guideline for customizing the course to the student.

My years of success prove I know how to increase scores!

Great Tutor

He sure knows his stuff. He explains things well so you can understand them better. I enjoyed learning from him.

Iveta, 1 lesson with Laurence

Great Tutor

This is a great chemistry tutor. He knows how to explain the material in a way that is easy to understand. He is very helpful and will make sure you understand before moving on. He is very patient, if you don’t understand he will tell you again until you understand. This tutor he knows what he is talking about and you are not wasting your money with this tutor.
