Science and Mathematics for High School and Continuing Education
I started teaching as an instructor at the Naval Nuclear Propulsion School back in the '80s. After leaving the Navy, I became a high school science teacher.
I currently hold Pennsylvania teaching certifications in Physics, Earth/Space, and General Science, and Mathematics; I have taught all of these subjects at one time or another.

Knowledgeable and connects well with students
Walter did click and impressed our 16 year old. She is not easy to please but felt that he is an excellent and very knowledgeable tutor and did help her even during the first lesson that she has had yet with Walter

Advocates for the Student's Needs
We hired Walt to evaluate our daughters knowledge of geometry and stay with her through precalculus. He tutors her in person, in our home. He is patient with our daughter, advocates for her needs, has a unique way of teaching, and moves at an appropriate pace. I can not evaluate him on a long term basis , but I will follow up after more sessions.

Good Start for SAT Math
My first lesson was a few problems and some basic approach strategies. Next will be review of my practice exam. Good start. Looking forward to next session. Walter is very knowledgeable and is a math wizard.

Great first session and will continue
My son felt at ease with Walter and feels much more confident to take his first AP test. He said he would want to work with Walter as he continues this class. Walter was knowledgeable and was able to explain in a way my son could relate.

Wow
He knows his material inside and out. Teaches in a way that creates a connection with the subject matter. Cares about my student's success.

Knowledgeable and Interesting Tutor
Mr. L. served as my tutor for about 40 hours worth of sessions, and during each session, he demonstrated that he was a great tutor and knew exactly what he was talking about. Although the physics course I was taking seemed daunting at first, he broke up it up into manageable chunks and took the time to make sure I really understood each topic and all of the principles beyond a simple memorization of definitions. With his extensive history working in the fields of math and science, he was able to apply a real-life approach to the problems and topics, which made each lesson engaging. Working with Mr. L. was a great investment, and I unhesitatingly recommend him as a tutor.
