About Larry

Hello. my name is Larry. I am currently an Academic Tutor (Math/Computer Science) at a community college. During my time as a tutor, I have worked with a diverse population of students. I have a knack for explaining concepts in a way that resonates with the students. I have an intense passion for helping others learn and I am highly computer/technologically literate.
I believe that anyone can learn math. The only thing that I ask of my students is that they eliminate the word "can't" from their vocabularies. I also believe in education over memorization. This philosophy has enabled me to assist students, who were terrified of math, in reaching their academic and personal goals. I look forward to working with you!
