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!

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,

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!

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!"

Knowledgeable math tutor

Larry S. was a great tutor because he really helped me with not only how to solve certain math problems, but also specific techniques and how to deal with and recognize the unconventional ways that the SAT might present simpler problems. My math score went up 60 points after just a month of tutoring, up to a 790 !

Paul, 7 lessons with Larry

Excellent Tutor!

Larry has been tutoring both of my kids for some time now. He excels at making complex math concepts easy for them to understand and retain. My kids like math already, and they look forward to working with him.

P, 33 lessons with Larry

Incredible teacher- knows everything about the SAT

After struggling through the sat math in March, I began learning with Larry. Now, after taking the Sept SAT, there wasn’t a single question i didn’t understand how to do. The math section went super well!

Minuet, 41 lessons with Larry

Knowledgeable tutor

Larry helped the student understand unfamiliar pre-calculus material, his knowledge & ability to explain the complex subject thoroughly increased the students self confidence. Very helpful, highly recommend!

Rosaura , 9 lessons with Larry

Great tutor

Larry showed a simple and efficient way how to solve the problems. My son feels much more confident when he is doing his Physics homework. It is great to know that he can receive help when he needs it. I am sure now he will be able to do a lot on his own.

Irina, 1 lesson with Larry

Excellent tutor!

Larry is an excellent tutor, who is interested in the development of your child! He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, punctual, and responsible. He is extremely smart, so, he will be able to progress your child's thought process and studying habits! He is the best!

Hayriye, 4 lessons with Larry

Great teacher.

In just a short time Larry was able to help my daughter understand the problems and give her confidence in her ability to do the work on her own. He helped her study for the last big exam of the semester and she aced it. She loved how he gave her examples of where the math would be applied in real life situations.

Renee, 2 lessons with Larry

THE BEST TUTOR

Larry is such an amazing tutor. He is very flexible and super accommodating. He knows what he is talking and is very knowledgeable. He will help you understand the questions to your satisfactory! He has helped me receive 100% on multiple assignments. I would recommend Larry to anyone in a heart beat!

Surpasses Expectations

Larry has been working with my son to get prepared for the ACT & SAT. My son is a good student, but has a bit of math anxiety. Larry has been able to break through with my son and help him in an effort to raise his math score on the ACT and SAT. In addition, as both tests have been cancelled multiple times, I have found Larry to be accommodating and understanding. When my son is able to finally take both tests, I am confident his score will increase substantially thanks to Larry's help.
