PHILOSOPHY

Communication is the key to being a successful tutor. My experience has taught me how to establish a rapport and communicate with young people. The most important element in establishing said rapport is to always understand and appreciate the needs of each individual tutee.

So regardless of whether your child is naturally interested in reading and writing or needs that extra push, they will feel comfortable in the supportive, encouraging, and enthusiastic environment that I will create with them. In such an environment, tutees will flourish and strive to maximize their skills.

Larry was a terrific tutor for our son Zack. He was patient and extremely knowledgeable about the college placement tests. He helped raise our son’s reading score on the ACT to the level where he was able to apply to an Honors Program. In addition, he helped our son write his college essays which ultimately got him accepted to the Honors Program of his choice.D. Greenberg

THREE PROMISES

As a tutor for your son or daughter, I make you three promises.

I will:

  1. Develop individualized tutoring programs to enable your child to reach his/her potential.
  2. Treat both you and your child in a professional and respectful manner.
  3. Ensure you are regularly updated on your child’s progress.
I highly and wholeheartedly recommend Larry to work with any student who needs help with English and writing. He is thorough, kind, caring, and patient. He assisted my daughter who has learning challenges with her high school application essay. He was a tremendous help to her. We were extremely happy when she was accepted into the high school of her choice. G. Riskin

Larry tutored my daughter to prepare her for the SAT writing and critical reading section. I was truly impressed with his dedication, patience, and ability to communicate with teenagers. He is an honest person who shows tremendous integrity. He kept me informed throughout the process and was clear about the challenges and what he could accomplish. My daughter’s scores and her confidence in taking the exam went sky high because of Larry!B. Laskin
