About Larry


Bio

I've found one-on-one sessions as the most effective way to learn math. I can diagnose and address deficiencies that would otherwise go undetected in a standard classroom environment. I explain the material so the student can learn through understanding. No short cuts required - if it makes sense, the student will learn it.

I have a math degree from MIT and taught math at Rutgers University for 10 years. I don't just know the material; I know the student as well.

Statistics,

Statistics

I have taught a course involving statistics and concentrated in several stats courses at the PhD level. Statistics offers many new concepts which, depending how it's taught, can be overwhelming at times. I have experience taking topics in statistics which students find challenging or intimidating and placing them in an easier to understand context.

Physics,

Physics

I performed well in my physics courses as an MIT student. I have tutored students in classic mechanics, electricity, and magnetism. I can offer help in both non-Calculus and Calculus based courses. My emphasis is on using physics principles to set up problems so that the remaining math becomes straightforward.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

A full Precalculus contains a great deal of material and is often a daunting task for the student. I have taught at the University level as the professor for Precalculus. I take the topics in Algebra, Exponentials, Logarithms, Trigonometry, and make them easier to understand. Once my students begin to understand the material, positive results usually follow.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have taught math for an SAT prep company. I teach the necessary concepts in order to obtain the answers and also how to use more efficient and quicker methods. SAT preparation requires lots of practice and I offer a study schedule based on the amount of time which remains until the exam and my assessment of the student's level. Increased scores should follow.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I completed and received an 'A' in a course in Differential Equation while at MIT (Cambridge, MA). I also taught a course in Differential Equation at Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ).
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I have an extensive background in probability and combinatorics. I taught an applied math course which included probability and graph theory at Rutgers University. I was a grader for a discrete math course which included the topics of logic, probability, and graph theory at Boston University.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have tutored linear algebra and received an A in a course at MIT. I have helped students to better understand systems of linear equations, determinants, eigenvectors and eigenvalues, diagonalization, and vector spaces among other topics.

Great tutor

I was working on graduate probability and statistics that many math tutors do not understand. Larry understood the material and was able to present it in a way that was easy to understand. I highly recommend Larry if you need a math tutor!

Michael, 3 lessons with Larry

Fair tutor, great effort trying to help me.

He was very patient and he kind of help me with multivariable calculus even though that course was not in his profile.

Axell, 1 lesson with Larry

Larrys a good guy good hand writing he knows his stuff five stars. He is flexible and wants to help.

Luc, 5 lessons with Larry

Excellent with concepts

Larry is very patient and knows how to tie concepts together which is crucial for vector calculus. In the short time together he helped me understand things that have been confusing me for weeks. Double thumbs up!
