About Larry

Hello there. I have a Master's Degree in Education, having graduated that program with a 4.0 GPA. I'm also an experienced teacher in many of the liberal arts, such as history (U.S., European, and World), Shakespeare, English Lit, and Theatre/Drama (as well as having worked in both community and professional theatre for over 10 years) and have homeschooled students from 4th through 12th grades. And finally, for the last 4 years I have had my own Educational Consulting firm offering curricula development and tutoring from middle school through college.

I have a passion for history, literature, and theatre, and I believe in teaching through differential, one-on-one instruction, based on how each student learns, rather than teaching dates or memorizing passages from a book by rote.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Basketball

I have both practical and educational experience in teaching and coaching basketball.

Educationally, I have two classes (on the undergrad level) taken, one in coaching, and one in refereeing.

In practice, I have coached in three different leagues (4th-5th graders, junior-high, and girls' JV high school), two of them for a park district, and one for a city school district.

Theatre

I have been an actor and director at both the community and professional levels since the mid-1980s, most recently as an actor and director (separate shows) for the Jewish Theatre Workshop in Baltimore. I have worked in Chicago, Baltimore, and near Seattle, WA, in both capacities (actor and director), as well as several stints as a lighting designer. As far as academia goes, I also have three college level classes completed, 2 in acting, and one in directing.
