## Knowledgeable and Thorough Tutor

Heather, 23 lessons with LarryLarry has been working with our 11 year old daughter for over four months and we've been extremely pleased. He is very thorough to learn the material and methods ahead of the sessions so that he teaches it in a similar matter to her school. Not only does he teach the methods well but also he does a great job to make sure she understands the meaning behind the methods. Larry is very good at communicating with us and also is very receptive to our guidance. We really appreciate all of Larry's...

I am retired from a successful math career, so I don't rely on tutoring to supplement my income. I have all my COVID vaccinations and resumed mask-free tutoring in the west Denver metro area. I began in-person tutoring at homes and public libraries five years ago, simply for the satisfaction of helping students acquire tools they may need for their own successful careers. I have a degree in math with a 3.5 GPA from Creighton University and a masters in business with a 3.9 GPA at Boston...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I tutor for the satisfaction of helping students succeed, not to supplement my retirement income. I majored in mathematics at Creighton University. I have taught high school algebra as a substitute teacher and at a math learning center. I taught college algebra for Embry-Riddle University. I now have three year's worth of satisfied parents and successful students.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

I tutor for the satisfaction of helping students succeed, not to supplement my retirement income. I obtained a bachelors degree at Creighton University majoring in mathematics. My basic calculus coursework included analytic geometry, which I applied often in my profession. I taught geometry as a substitute teacher and recently instructed geometry at a math learning center.

Prealgebra
#### Prealgebra

I have enjoyed tutoring pre-algebra for 5 years and have never failed to help a student raise their grades anywhere from one to three levels. My rates are low because I resumed tutoring after retirement from a successful career for the enjoyment of helping students gain the skills to succeed in furthering their education. Pre-algebra is an important subject to master because it lays the groundwork in mathematical logic that is needed to continue on in high school math and potentially into college. Most of the math learned in pre-algebra stems from mastering a relatively small number of concepts, but these are applied in such a variety of ways that it can become confusing. The key to mastering prealgebra is to develop a solid understanding of each of these basic concepts before going on to learn and practice how each is applied. A step-by-step progression is essential to remembering the myriad of ideas that are presented in this subject.

Probability
#### Probability

Probability and statistics coursework was included calculus applications in my undergraduate mathematics major as well as business applications in my graduate work and undergraduate economics minor. A large portion of my professional work involved the field of operations research and systems analysis, the mathematical modeling and evaluation of possible outcomes of complex processes.

## Very knowledgable with a relaxed manner of teaching

Larry has been working with our daughter almost daily for 2 weeks now. We had an initial “meet and greet” that lasted almost 2 hours and we were very pleased with Larry’s knowledge of math and his relaxed manner of teaching. We were convinced that he was very dedicated to his joy of seeing his client's needs and help them to achieve their fullest potential. In the words of our 14-year-old “Mr. Larry reminds me of a lot of Grandpa, he’s big and looks intimidating but he’s really not. He’s easy to talk to and no matter how dumb I think my question might be, he’s always patient and makes everything easy to understand; he never makes me feel like I asked a dumb question and he explains things way better than my teachers.” I highly recommended him for your tutor needs no matter which angle you are coming from to achieve improvement in your child's life. I wish I had found him when I was in school as he is genuine and unique. He asks questions to make sure our daughter is learning the material and doesn’t just teach her how to do it but helps her understand why. He’s doing a great job with our daughter and she enjoys their time together. We highly recommend Larry!
