Hi, I am an experienced math instructor having taught a range of math courses from pre-algebra to statistics to calculus. I use many examples to illustrate various math concepts and I will review any math concepts multiple times to assist with student comprehension.

My background includes a Master's degrees in Mathematics and Statistics, as well as Masters degrees in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. I have been a practicing engineer for many years and thus I am familiar with many practical applications of math concepts to real world examples.

My teaching philosophy is to maintain a student-focused and student-engaged learning environment to ensure student comprehension and student success. For mathematics learning, student success depends on a complete understanding of fundamental concepts since more advanced mathematical topics typically build on previous concepts.

I am available for face to face tutoring as well as online tutoring using a shared whiteboard application.

Excellent tutor

Was able to make statistics understandable. I learned in a two hour session more than I did in an entire week of reading on my own. Larry makes the topics understandable and helps by applying them to areas of my expertise.

Knowledgable & Well-Rounded

Today Larry visited one of my employees to work on his geometry skills needed to move to the next level in his position at our company. This employee tends to be eager to learn, but is easily discouraged. After just one lesson, my employee already seemed more confident and ready to practice his new skills. I was pleased that Larry has a background in engineering, as it made it easy for him to work with drawings and parts relevant to my employees direct skill requirements. This seems to be a great fit, and hope to see more of Larry in the coming weeks!

Excellent Tutor.

Larry was very patient and explained everything thoroughly in a way that I could understand but didn't make me feel stupid. Very professional and knowledgeable with excellent Excel skills.

5 stars!

From the student: ..."good in explaining difficult concepts, patient, VERY knowledgeable...actually, I had fun." From the mother: Our son had problems with college Algebra, and I contacted Larry. He responded immediately and was very flexible with scheduling lessons. After only three lessons our son is back on track, and - equally important to us - he got his love for math and his confidence back. We can highly recommend Larry!

Great tutor

Larry has been a great help to my son at Kutztown. He has been very patient in showing him new ways to learn calculus 2 . I would gladly recommend Larry as a tutor.

Sincere & Helpful!

I took Larry's help for college statistics. He understood my needs well and developed a good strategy to teach me in the given time. Larry explained with examples, let me work through different problems, and ensured that I understood the concepts thoroughly. He spent every minute of his tutoring time on the subject. He wrote down key points with explanations to help me understand proficiently. I will go back to Larry for other relevant subjects if needed and strongly recommend him.

Very knowledgeable and thorough tutor!

I contacted Larry with a tight deadline on an assignment. He was able to thoroughly explain the material and review it at a pace that set me on track to meet the deadline. I highly recommend Larry as a tutor!

Great tutor!

My daughter sent me a text after her meeting with Larry and this is what she said, "Great tutor! The best I have ever had. I finally understand it now!"
