I view algebra like a game: there are simple rules that govern what you can do, and if you know and understand the rules, the game is a whole lot easier. If algebra seems to be a struggle for a student, I can help them identify the basic concepts (i.e. rules) on which they need to strengthen their understanding. Algebra is an essential tool I use to solve a myriad of problems every day as an engineer, and so I am intimately familiar with its many different topics, and perhaps because I understand its value, I genuinely enjoy teaching algebra to others.

I remember what it was like to personally struggle with algebra, and I know the most common pitfalls which make it seem more difficult than it actually is. Because of this experience, I am quite adept on picking up on my students' weak points, and helping them clear up fuzzy understandings of the rules of algebra.

I am taking a doctoral statistics class where the assignments are all theory and understanding of research versus specific math equations. Colin is great at helping me understand the material. I appreciate his tutoring skills. I will be using him again when I take my intermediate statistics and research class.

About Larry

First off, I want to mention something that potential Philadelphian students should be aware of. I can only go to certain sections of the city, and I can only give you lessons on weekday afternoons between 12-2pm. Sorry, no evening classes. I'll need time to travel between New Jersey and Pennsylvani

He kept talking about HTML instead of JavaScript. It was really frustrating. I really need help with JavaScript because that is what we are doing in my class. I am sorry to say that the lesson was not helpful.

I have tutored students in a variety of math courses, going from basic Algebra up to Calculus 2. With a good foundation, any topic is manageable. Homework is key and my students have to complete it before our lesson. Before any of my lessons, I ask the student to send me an outline of the topics they would like to go over and I prepare accordingly.
