About Larry

I am retired from a successful mathematical analysis business, so I tutor for my personal satisfaction, not for income. I earned a bachelors degree in math with a 3.5 GPA at Creighton University in 1968. Ten years later I earned my masters in business with a 3.9 GPA at Boston University. I recently instructed at a local math learning center. I have been a substitute teacher at the high school level, and I have taught college-level algebra.

I charge a very low rate because I want to pass on the skills that have made me successful, not supplement my retirement income. I am certain I can help your student with my professional knowledge, teaching skills, and real-world experiences. My college coursework included analytical geometry, differential, integral, multivariate and advanced calculus, differential equations, advanced probability and statistical theory, basic and advanced theoretical algebra, and topology. My professional career dealt extensively with operations research and systems analysis with over 40 years of experience as a research consultant to inform high-level government decision-makers. I have held the highest level national security clearances my entire professional life. Due to my training and experiences, I offer a unique and more of a long-term approach that builds on what the student is already comfortable with, and raises them to the level of competence that enables longer-term academic success.

I am focusing my efforts on high school math because I believe those are the foundation courses needed for higher-level coursework in business, sciences, and information technology. This is a critical point in education where a student can still be helped with basics and given a solid foundation for later coursework that lead to rewarding professions. I can help students succeed in a one-on-one environment by gaining confidence in their own ability to understand and apply basic math concepts. I can also help motivate the student with real-world experiences that bring them to understand why math is an important tool to achieve their goals, no matter what those might be.

Thank you,
Larry
