About Len


Bio

As an engineering manager, I spend much of my day explaining technical subjects to non-technical managers as well as to my employees. I enjoy this part of my job so much that for the past eight years I have tutored middle school, high school and college students one-on-one in all levels of math and science. I have successfully tutored students in pre-algebra, algebra, intermediate and advanced algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, calculus, physics and SAT preparation.

As an engineering manager, I spend much of my day explaining technical subjects to non-technical managers as well as to my employees. I enjoy this part of my job so much that for the past eight years I have tutored middle school, high school and college students one-on-one in all levels of math and science. I have successfully tutored students in pre-algebra, algebra, intermediate and advanced algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, calculus, physics and SAT preparation.

I believe in working one-on-one with students to help them understand what they are learning in school. I believe that homework is necessary to reinforce and solidify what they are learning so I often give extra homework. Often students just need someone to reinforce what they are learning or to explain it in a different way. Every student has different strengths and weaknesses and each must be taught as an individual. My experience in tutoring math, starting with my own three children, is extensive, so that I have always found a way to explain difficult concepts to help a student understand it.

In high school math especially, too many students fall behind in skills that they need to build on. Then they develop the attitude that "I just can't do math." I believe that everyone can "do math" if they're firmly grounded in the basic principles and continue to practice through homework. I have uncovered weakness in earlier subjects while tutoring more advanced math. By finding and correcting these problems, the student improves, gains confidence and can often complete the subject with limited or no additional help.

I look forward to talking with you and helping your student improve his/her math and science skills.

Great tutor

Teaching my 10th grader son. It's been very good for him. Started with geometry which he needed help with to now taking lessons in chemestry. Equally knowlegeable in math and other science subjects.

Great tutor!

I've been dreading math for a vary long time. Just within 2 session's I have learned more in math than what my collage professor could teach. Great tutor!

Len is the best tutor my daughter has ever had. He has the ability to talk to his students and make them feel comfortable and confident. His manner and knowledge base are just two of the many features that makes him a success at what he does. I highly recommend him!

Len is a very good tutor. Very pleasant and my daughter was very pleased with his tutoring. She did better on the SAT test with his teaching.

Romane, 2 lessons with Len

Highly recommended!

This is Len's second time tutoring Isaiah. He is professional and patient and has helped Isaiah master the techniques he has been struggling with since the beginning of the school year. These sessions have been extraordinarily successful and I would highly recommend him.

So patient and extremely knowledgeable

He's so patient with our kids and is extremely knowledgeable with the material. We've had him for the last three years for our kids and we plan on keeping him as long as we can. At least til our last one graduates in seven years.

R. Patrick, 96 lessons with Len

Highly Recommend

Len is everything we wanted in a tutor -- flexible, accessible, professional, kind, adaptable, knowledgeable and goal-oriented. Len displayed a unique desire to help our daughter, before he even met her. He quickly assessed our daughter's strengths and weaknesses and motivated her to overcome her challenges. We are very satisfied with the end results for the school year and intend to use his services as her curriculum challenges increase. I highly recommend Len!
