Larry the Math Tutor
I believe that math is fun. One of the great difficulties many students face is the self fulfilling prophecy that I have always been poor at math and I will always be poor at math. The key to success is for the student to believe that they can become better at math. Therefore I have the student experience earned success in order to achieve some confidence. Constant failure is discouraging. I have taught for three years at the middle school level. I also have experience teaching ACT math...
I believe that math is fun. One of the great difficulties many students face is the self fulfilling prophecy that I have always been poor at math and I will always be poor at math. The key to success is for the student to believe that they can become better at math. Therefore I have the student experience earned success in order to achieve some confidence. Constant failure is discouraging. I have taught for three years at the middle school level. I also have experience teaching ACT math prep. Additionally, I have taken 20 credits of math at the college level over the last 4 years and can identify with the difficulties that students face in mastering math. I love math and have a strong desire to help students improve in this beautiful discipline.
My son greatly benefited from his lessons with Larry. Great explanations, support, patience and preparation in his assistance with geometry. Scheduling was extremely flexible with son being in sports and excellent communication. We will definitely be using Larry for any math and ACT prep for school in the future.Kim, 12 lessons with Larry
Very patient and knowledgeable!
Larry tutored my son for an upcoming Trigonometry test. My son felt very comfortable with his study guide after meeting with Larry. My son told me Larry was very patient and helped him understand the concepts he was having trouble with.Rich, 7 lessons with Larry
Confidence through learning.
Larry has helped my daughter get a better handle on various Math concepts which has increased her confidence. He has been trying to help her speak the language of Math more fluently and I think it is starting to show in her class work.Mylinda, 28 lessons with Larry
Larry listened to my son's issues with math and jumped right in. He covered his current work and gave him some great tips on upcoming work, as well. I'm so glad he is working with my son!Ann, 4 lessons with Larry

Punctual, Patient, and Compassionate
Larry P. has experience in teaching math to children. I find him to be punctual, patient, and compassionate. He takes the time to analyze what stepping stones your child has mastered, and what has not been mastered in order to help your child achieve success.Sarah, 11 lessons with Larry
Great Tutor, Very Experienced in Math
This was our first experience with an at home tutor. Larry is a able to assist our daughter on his first visit to our home. He discussed with her the homework she had difficulty with. They were able to start the tutoring on the first day. This was very impressive to us as parents as we thought this would take him time to get ready and come back to assist her. However, that wasn't the case he was able to pull out his graph paper and get started within 20 minutes of his arrival. We are looking forward to him helping our daughter get confident in Geometry so she can enjoy this class like she does all her other classes. I find that Larry is very punctual and that our daughter can give him questions that he can answer on the spot. He will have to think it out first but this is something I find impressive to be able to pull it out of your pocket on the spot.Cindy, 8 lessons with Larry
