Great at explaining
Len helped my son prep for his honors precalculus unit test. He broke down the problem to manageable pieces and my son felt very confident after the session. Highly recommend.

A Huge Help With My College Physics Course
I have not taken a Physics class in over 10 years. As an older student in a Post-Bacc program, some concepts take longer to grasp now than when they did when I was in college. I review all lecture and homework problems with Leonard. Unlike other tutors, he takes the time to write down all the steps in solving the problems and explains them. At the end of each session, I have a neat stack of his notes as well as mine, and these have been critical study guide tools to look back on!

Excellent ACT math tutor
Leonard reviewed all the ACT math problems that my son got wrong on his prior practice tests. He explained everything very thoroughly and in an easy to understand way. My son was very happy with the session and wants to schedule another review session. Thank you!

Really helpful and versatile tutor
Leonard has worked with both my 6th grader and 9th grader, on everything from algebra 1 to AP calc to AP physics. The kids both like him very much and he's been really helpful and patient in tamping down some of the math anxiety.

Really patient and knowledgeable on the subject
Len explained statistics in a visual way so I not only understand the formulas but the underlying foundation. His explanation allowed me to see statistics in a new light and actually enjoy it. He is also very patient and kind. Definitely going back to Len. Thank you so much!
