About Laszlo

Approachable, patient, and experienced, I'm ready to help motivated learners of any age. I have spent most of my career in middle and high school education, and have shifted more of my time toward tutoring because I want to focus on education, not classroom management. Let me help you get to the next level of understanding in math or science, or in your work with computers.

In addition to my 8 years as a certified teacher with public schools in NYC, I have worked in computer repair/troubleshooting within and outside of the classroom. I have an A+ hardware certification, and have worked with a range of platforms and software tools. I am also a native Hungarian speaker (came to the US when I was 8, so I have flawless English, too) and an avid reader. I taught my preschooler to read in the last year, and have taught reading for ACT/SAT, so I'm happy to help with reading at any level. So, let's get started!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

DOS

The first computer I had, as a teenager, ran on DOS and Windows 3.1. Most of the popular games of the time (such as the original Doom) ran on DOS, so I became familiar with the command line interface by necessity. Nowadays, I sometimes use DOS, or at least its command line interface, when troubleshooting Windows computers.

Hungarian

I am a native Hungarian speaker - I lived in Hungary and went to school there until 2nd grade. My Hungarian is at an intermediate level, with excellent native pronunciation and everyday vocabulary, but lacking a full adult vocabulary. I can provide a solid introduction to Hungarian as well as conversational practice.

Linux

I used Ubuntu Linux as my primary operating system for about 2 years, so I'm very familiar with it. I'm also proficient with Inkscape and the GIMP (native Linux programs similar to Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, respectively) and I've taught those programs to high school students as a computer teacher.

Macintosh

Last year as a teacher, I used my school-provided MacBook Pro for all lesson planning, grading and corresponding with parents, teachers and administrators. I have also maintained a computer lab full of Macintosh computers, where I've installed and upgraded programs, fixed problems, and even reinstalled the operating system.

Microsoft Excel

As a computer teacher, I have taught Microsoft Excel to middle school and high school students. I can show you shortcuts for entering data quickly and efficiently, how to use formulas and sort information, and how to add properly-labeled charts appropriate for your data. With a solid introduction, you can be making useful, great-looking spreadsheets and charts in no time.

Microsoft PowerPoint

As a computer teacher, I have taught Microsoft PowerPoint to middle school and high school students. I can walk you through the steps of creating slides, adding images and sounds, and making use of transitions, animations and different color schemes. With a solid introduction, you can be making great-looking slides in no time.

Microsoft Windows

I use Microsoft Windows as my primary operating system. I know how to customize it and install/remove programs. I have an A+ certification which demonstrates competence as a computer technician who can maintain and troubleshoot PCs.

Praxis

I studied for and took the Praxis exams as part of my certification process to become a classroom teacher. I scored in the 97th to 99 percentiles on the various components, including elementary education as well as math, reading and writing. Also, I currently teach SAT & ACT test prep classes, which are similar in structure to the Praxis exams.

Study Skills

I have a graduate degree in education, and focused for my masters thesis on self-directed learning. I have subsequently gained experience as a teacher and tutor over the past 10+ years. Tutoring programs and schools I have worked with in Seattle and New York incorporate study skills guidance alongside the main subject knowledge. I have assisted students from all educational levels with their homework and test preparation, and I have a non-confrontational and organized approach that helps me connect with students.
