I can help you with your math and physics!

Are you are already good at math? I'll help you to be GREAT! In the past year, many of my students have scored 790 or 800 on SAT Math! I help my students learn to master the calculations, solve the problems, and really understand and appreciate math!

Or is math difficult for you? It doesn't have to be! I'll help you increase your math skills and your self-confidence. I am very good at explaining math to students who are having trouble...

I can help you with any high school math and also physics!

One of my students recently told me that she was beginning to help her friends with their math, and that she explains things to them the way I've explained them to her! And another student was just "promoted" to the honors math class!

SAT Math score 790 out of 800, Graduate of Cornell University-- Engineering major, with additional emphasis on Child Development and Psychology. M.Ed. in Counseling from the University of Missouri-- St. Louis, specializing in Counseling Adolescents. I've been a certified teacher in Secondary Math, and a licensed Counselor. My specialties: SAT Math, Physics, Precalc, Geometry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2. Currently, I am the SAT Math instructor for a major test prep center.

I've been helping young people move forward with their lives for many years-- as a tutor, a teacher, a counselor, and as a parent to my own children. In addition, my background as a counselor for teens allows me to really tune into the thought process of my students, so I can see where they might be having trouble and how best to help them.

Please contact me and let's work together to help you to succeed!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

You can increase your knowledge and skill in Algebra! You can become more capable and confident in math, in school, in life, and I can help. I’ve been an Algebra teacher and tutor for hundreds of students-- many of my students had done very poorly in math before, and I helped them understand the concepts, do the work, and grow in their confidence. I can help you, too!
Algebra 2,

I have a B.S. in Engineering from Cornell University, I've been a certified teacher of high school math, and I can help you to master the topics, the formulas, and the calculations in Algebra 2!
Calculus,

Calculus

I excelled in 6 semesters of Calculus as part of my Engineering studies at Cornell! I have tutored through Calc BC
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is a bit different that many of the topics in math that come before it and the ones that will come after, so I understand that many don't get it at first! I'll take the time to work closely with you to understand the shapes, the angles, the theorems, the proofs, and to be successful in doing Geometry problems. I've been a Geometry teacher and tutor for hundreds of students-- I can help you, too!
Physics,

Physics

I have helped many students understand physics--I studied Physics for 4 semesters at Cornell University as part of my Engineering degree, and I can help you to understand the concepts and do the work!
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I taught middle school math/prealgebra in Baltimore, and I helped my students to understand the positive and negative integers, the fractions, the exponents, PEMDAS, the graphs, the simple one-variable equations-- knowledge that carried them on to success in high school math. I believe that everyone wants to move forward and accomplish something, and often needs extra support. I can be that support!
Precalculus,

SAT Math

SAT Math

In the words of one of my SAT Math students: "Mr. Larry helped me right from the start! Although he was open to my methods of solving, he did not stop there. He would show me the quickest way to reach an answer leaving me more time to think about the harder questions. Even questions I knew how to do, we would work through and he would demonstrate multiple methods of solving. On test day, I would look at a problem and immediately know every possible approach I could take. I finished the test before time was called thanks to his tips and was able to check my answers thoroughly! He had told me what to look out for and where I commonly made errors so I knew exactly which problems to check. I am so grateful to have received his help and so excited to have gotten an 800!"

Excellent tutor!

Larry was very thorough and informative. He had many helpful tips to offer, as well as a well-thought-out plan for how to proceed. He is patient and offers both the chance for students to work things out on their own, and the backstopping they need if they get stuck. He explains things very well and makes them easy to remember.

Deborah, 10 lessons with Larry

Very helpful, easy going, and engaged

We worked on trigonometry. We went over past tests and he listened to me explain my thought process to help pinpoint where I was making mistakes. He pointed out a couple of patterns to my errors. When our methods were different he listened to mine and gave constructive feedback. He also demonstrated his approach to solving selected problems in case his method might work for me.

Susan, 5 lessons with Larry

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Mr. Larry is helping my daughter with Geometry. Besides being a math whiz, he is one of the nicest people. Most importantly, my daughter likes him. He even created a Youtube video for my daughter to review with a problem she was having! Math aside, he seems genuinely interested in youth and seeing them achieve. I highly recommend him.

Lekiah, 32 lessons with Larry

Algebra 1

Larry has been a great tutor for my son. He has put more effort in the first couple of sessions to see my sons strengths and weaknesses to maximize his ability to learn. My son started from a E to now almost a B in just under 5 weeks. Larry takes pride in tutoring. He reach out to me because he wants to help the kids that need it the most. He loves the challenge and that's his best ability.

Damon, 17 lessons with Larry

Knowledgeable Tutor

Larry is very patient and prepares detailed lesson plans that aid in a targeted tutoring session for my daughter. He goes beyond our expectations by answering questions and searching for extra practice worksheets outside of our tutoring sessions.

Jasmine, 25 lessons with Larry

Great trig help

Larry has been a great help for an upcoming trig test and was patient when we went over the various trig functions that were going to be on the test. Larry helped me understand intervals and the horizontal shift during graphing.

Emma, 20 lessons with Larry

Highly recommended for Geometry help!

Larry was very knowledgeable and encouraging to my daughter who is in 9th grade Honors Geometry. He helped her at the last minute for a test and was very responsive to emailing to arrange meeting in a tutor room at the library. He knew all the material she presented with ease. She felt much more confident after two hours and we owe that to Larry! Highly recommend him as a tutor!

Judy, 18 lessons with Larry

Extremely Knowledgeable and Helpful

Was very patient, punctual, and kind. He helped me work through all of the difficult problems that I was unable to do and carefully explained each topic extensively. By far an excellent tutor. Look forward to working with him again.

Akbar, 2 lessons with Larry

Excellent Precalculus Tutor

I actually gave Larry 5 Stars. Larry helped prepare my daughter for her upcoming exam. I was quite impressed with his teaching skills, wealth of knowledge, and patient and encouraging attitude. My daughter felt more confident after just one session with Larry.
