About Larry

I have over 15 years experience in construction, both residential and commercial. I am finishing up my Master's degree in Architecture from NCSU. I would like to help anyone do what I have done. Don't give up your dream. I will help you prepare for design school and become an Architect. I have the inside information that will help you with strategies to earn money to help you pay for your degree and be ready for the demands required to finish school.

I am an expert and certified professional in Revit and BIM. You will need these skills to become valuable to Architectural firms and find a job. I can work with young adults and adults. I also offer a reduced rate for those in need.

Depending on your situation, I will work with you to devise a plan. I offer more than just your basic tutoring. I can help your High School student or yourself prepare for design college or add skills that will increase your salary. I will work with him/her on practice exercises, study skills, portfolios and much more. I work with students on three levels:

Daily Practice
This is where you make it happen. Set aside time every day to invest in your future. Start small, 10-15 min, and work up to 1 hour. A majority of the work will be in your sketchbook. Having a personal sketchbook is very important.
Most of this work will be for your eyes only. No need to worry about how good it is. Contrary to what most people believe, being an architect/artist is 90% hard work and 10% talent. Sometimes the students with less talent do better because they work harder.

Weekly Lessons
Your weekly lessons will teach you what you need to know for that weeks practice. I will help you learn the basics so you can work on design projects that will prepare you for studio. You will also learn how to research design school and pick the right one for you.

Monthly Reviews
The review process is essential in design school. We will get you ready by using a process every college uses. Your work will be reviewed by fellow students and guest reviewers. We will help you learn how to become better designers through the review process.

Sometimes reviews can be painful. My first review in college was very emotional. I had to take a moment to compose myself. Everyone has good and bad reviews. We will help you learn how to present your work and learn from your review.

Let me help you learn how to make your
dreams come true.

Great Tutor

Larry looked over the teaching modules of the course so that I could understand better what was to be done for assignments. He had his own language and perspective and it was correct but I needed to hear the language I have been presented with in this course. He accommodated me by putting in the time and effort to become familiar with the content of the course.
