About Larry

Hi, my family and I own and operate Maple Valley Farm just north of Bloomington. We raise sheep, cows, goats, pigs, meat chickens, egg laying hens, turkeys and rabbits using natural methods. I'm an engineer and a scientist by training (electrical and computer engineering and information science). I took many advanced math subject while training to be an engineer (and mostly enjoyed them!). After completing my masters degree, I had the opportunity to work as a usability engineer at Microsoft in Redmond Washington where I helped them improve their software. I also ate hamburgers with Bill Gates in his back yard! I have over 20 years of experience in engineering including leading teams of software engineers in the development of sophisticated sensor integration projects with remotely controlled machinery and unmanned vehicles. Before we had children, my wife and I operated a company that specialized in helping large corporations improve the performance of their workers. We developed a lot of very technical training programs and web / database programs to help the workers improve. We specialized in making complicated subjects easy to understand. I've also taught courses at Indiana University to non-technical students in technical subjects such as advanced database and web application development and Unix programming. When I was 36 years old, I learned to ice skate and fulfilled a lifetime dream of learning to play ice hockey. Later, I coached my own son's cub hockey team. I enjoy natural farming because I have to learn new things every day and solve problems. I enjoy teaching my three children 13, 11 and 9 at home every day as we do the farm work together.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Computer

I hold degrees in Electrical Engineering with a focus in computer architecture and Information Science with a focus in Human Computer Interaction. The culmination of my masters work was as a usability engineer with Microsoft. I have taught computer fundamentals to men graduating from the Backstreet Mission jobs preparation program as well as advanced courses in Unix programming, Database (Oracle) and Web Application programming (IU Master's level courses). I've also taught a course for undergraduates in Informatics called "Innovation in Informatics." I have extensive experience in the software development arena as an engineer, a technical leader, a project manager and a supervisory manager of a 60 person group of software developers.
