Great Tutor fun , patient and extremely thorough!

I'm extremely happy with my session, Lawrence is a patient and fun tutor. He covers everything you need to know about Art. Lawrence is very positive and gives great encouragement and support. He has many years experience as a extremely talented artist. I highly recommend a lesson with him!

So glad you are having fun Dee, you already have great talent! Looking forward to sharing techniques with you along your journey ! See you soon !

Caring about what you do

Lawrence is incredible. I am visually handicapped and I am trying to make a switch from PC to Mac. My disability what test anyone's patience. Not Lawrence. Whatever that sure was he walked me through it beginning to end. Really was a wealth of information. He gets an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10 when it comes to knowledge of Mac. Great personality. Just a happy and fun guy to be with. He really cared about making an impact.

Patient and thorough

Lawrence is extremely patient and helpful. He doesn't mind repeating the same topics over and over until I completely understand what it is i am trying to learn. I need things repeated to me over and over until it finally clicks and he is great with that. Definitely recommend him. I have learned all the basics of Photoshop with Lawrence in 2 hours! But I will keep going back to him until I become more and more comfortable with the Photoshop program.

Tutor responded:

Thanks Tim. Slow and steady, no worries, you will get there. Don't be afraid to use the program - we will continue together.

He helped me get over my fear of computers in the first session!!

I can not say enough about Lawrence R. I am 61, enrolled in an online school and had very basic computer skills, which also became a mental handicap for me. My family could not help me, too fast, too little patience. Not only did I learn the most amazing skills that I can't stop "playing" with my computer and Ipad, he helped me with both. But he helped me relax and ENJOY the "new" technology! I will be setting up another appointment with Lawrence, and another and another until I master this, and in the future, if need be, I will use his services again to tackle whatever it is I have to tackle in this arena! If you want a "wizard" with a heart, Lawrence is your guy!

It's fun to work with people that want to learn. Carol is the most upbeat fun to work with! Her energy is contagious and her drive to learn is inspiring!! We can all learn something from her!!! Thanks Carol see you soon!!!

Creative and patient.

Lawrence R worked with my grandson. He was creative and patient. A very nice man who tried hard to interest my grandson in new ways to use computers.

Tutor responded:

Thanks!! Appreciated! Tell your grandson about ROBOTS on the iPAD, and I highly recommend astronomy to him!

Awesome Tutor

I hired Larry for drawing lessons and he has proved to be an excellent teacher. He's patient, knowledgeable and he tailors his lessons around my needs. I recommend him to anyone trying to learn how to draw.

David, 13 lessons with Lawrence
Tutor responded:

David - I am having a great time working with you. You really take interest and it makes my job fun and easy to move forward. We've covered a lot and anything you want to repeat, just say so - but I look forward to challenging you more as we go on.. thanks for keeping the faith.

Very Patient

Larry was exceptionally sweet and knowledgeable! It was so easy to talk with him and learn at the same time. I'm a beginner and this experienced photographer / artist was such a great help and never made me feel embarrassed with my lack of knowledge. Highly recommend!
