About Larry

Is math confusing and difficult for you? It doesn't have to be! I'll help you increase your math skills and grow in your self-confidence.

I'll explain the different concepts to you in simple, interesting ways-- bringing in your own experiences and things you already know. Then we’ll work a few problems. With each problem, I’ll ask you to show me what you know about it, even if you aren’t sure. We’ll work from there until you understand it well. Then you’ll practice doing problems by yourself (with me as your back-up).

I am very good at explaining math concepts to students who are having trouble understanding. 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, Geometry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and Prealgebra. Currently, I am the SAT Math instructor for a major tutoring 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 talk to them.

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

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.

ACT Math

My SAT Math score was 790 out of 800, and I've been a certified teacher of secondary math. I have helped my students to understand their math, and I can help you prepare for the ACT Math!

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!

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!

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

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 precalc!

Fabulous Tutor

Larry helped both of my kids with math. One of my kids is in very high level math and the other is in the basic level in High School. Larry was proficient with both of them. But more than that, he was extremely easy for them to relate to and actually engaged with the lesson in a way that hasn't happened in the past. My high achiever was happy to understand how to apply the methods to more compl
