My name is Larry and I am a former college instructor who taught a number of undergraduate and graduate level geology courses as well as other since courses. My philosophy on teaching is simple - make it fun. From my teaching experience, I saw that students who enjoyed learning the coursework performed better in the classroom. My style of teaching also involves getting to know your student to identify what is his/her best way to learn. Understanding how a student learns best is at the core of true learning.

After finishing my PhD, I worked in the oil & gas business for 13 years where I served as a corporate professional mentor to numerous new staff and junior staff. Professional mentoring is again how best to instruct someone to help them learn effectively & quickly.

What do I love most about tutoring & mentoring? I love to get to see the growth, development & success in those I get to work with. The absolute best way to test one's own knowledge of a subject is to teach it to someone else.

What sets me apart from other science & geology tutors is my absolute love & passion for science. I knew I wanted to be a scientist since I was 4 years old. I have passion for sharing my love of science with others.

Some courses I have taught include:
Physical Geology - the study of the Earth and the processes that have formed & shaped it over time
Historical Geology - the study of changes in the Earth over time & examination of the fossils that are left behind during the changes in the Earth
Field Geology - field based classwork which builds upon all aspects of geology
Sedimentary Geology - the study of sedimentary rocks (sandstone, siltstone, mudstone & carbonate roc
