Don't merely treat symptoms, solve the root problem.
I am a fun-loving, pragmatic, task master. I believe in making math fun through the use of computational tricks and short cuts that are often no longer taught in schools. I recognize that some students are handicapped when their learning style does not match the style of their teacher; so I adapt. I believe that understanding the "why" and "when" is perhaps more important than the "how".
I have graduate degrees in Systems Management, Business Administration, and Industrial Engineering. I...

Larry taught my son how to find the change in momentum, velocity, and mass. My son was able to do his online quizzes with more confidence after reviewing the subject.

Very nice, patient and kind
Larry helped my daughter with her AP calc BC problems and he pointed out where her teacher was making errors which was enormously helpful. He is easy to work with and very pleasant in his explanations.

Stats Know-How & Great Teaching Style
I'm an adult learner, returning to school for an eMBA degree. I needed help with statistics and found Larry on Wyzant. Larry was quickly able to assess my understanding of the subject & he made some suggestions about how we should begin the session. His teaching style comes from years & years of experience, he was easily able to move from basic statistics to higher level concepts so I had an improved understanding of the foundations of statistics. This information was invaluable to me. I highly recommend Larry: he has a kind, relational teaching style, he created diagrams & charts for me, he provided examples of how I can relate statistical concepts to real life, and he suggested MS Excel formulas / functions to use in future assignments. Great tutor!

Real world application
Larry was phenomenal; He related the statistics to real world contexts which helped considerably. He was Patient and knowledgeable, I felt confident and he respected the knowledge I brought to the session. He also shared some really cool math insights to help me in the future.

Listens to explanations of problems
I had roadblocks merging some of the mathematical formulas with physics formulas and since I'm an adult student (62 yrs.!) and worked construction, a lot had been forgotten or never learned. If explanations losing you, just let him know as is genuinely there to help so will slow it down.

Great AP Stats tutor
Larry helped me with exponential and power models, which I had been stuck on for a while. After talking me through it in under an hour, I finally understood the material and felt confident in my ability to solve such problems on my homework. Thank you.

Patient and thorough
Larry took time to let my daughter feel comfortable with him before he tackled the course material. That made all the difference. She felt really good about the session and what she had covered.
