About Larry

After 35 years in Oil and Gas administrative positions, in 2000 I returned to the career closest to my heart, education, teaching mathematics. I was Math Department Chair person for two school districts coordinating instruction at the secondary level and was named Secondary Teacher of the Year for Oakhurst-Coldspring ISD in 2003. Subjects taught during my teaching tenure include 7th grade math, Algebra 1, PAP Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra II, PAP Algebra II, Precalculus, PAP Precalculus, and AP Calculus. The Calculus curriculum I submitted to the College Board was approved for AP status. In addition, I taught three levels of entry-level math at Cy-Fair Community College (now a part of Lone Star College System). I retired in 2015 from full time teaching but continued tutoring.

My teaching and tutoring philosophy is based on the "Socratic" method, i.e. teaching through guided inquiry. Students have a very important role in directing their learning. To be successful, students must "buy into" their education; they must be an integral part of the learning process.
