I'm a retired college professor and have taught math and computer business courses for over 40 years. I enjoy helping students learn math and have developed many techniques to assist students learn. I've worked to make the transition to a good math student an easy one. I'm an applied math guy and believe hat hard work and many examples are the only way to learn math.
I live on Long Island and will travel a reasonable distance to help a student in need. I do not believe in quick fixes and am not a miracle worker. Math is a long distance run, not a sprint. Working with students is really rewarding, especially when you see someone become successful. Don't wait until you're drowning to get help, as it puts both people at the worst possible state.
All we need is a pencil, a math book and good attitude -- and we can be successful.

Great pre-calculus tutor

Lawrence worked with my son on the foundations of pre-Calculus to ensure that he understands all that he needs to know before entering engineering school in the fall.
