Maurice is a blessing to my life and an answer to my prayers. If you are serious about learning Hebrew this man is the man to see. He is on time, good natured, and patient. His teaching method gives quick results.

I am in my second year of homeschooling and had prayed specifically for a male teacher to come alongside us and assist in our homeschooling adventure. Although my son, who is six, is not having any difficulties at the moment, homeschooling is still new to me and I was hoping I could find someone who would keep us accountable and help fill in any gaps in my son's schooling. We have found Maurice to be just what we needed. He is engaging and encouraging and has been helpful in sharing strategies and teaching techniques that foster comprehensive learning and not merely memorization.

About Larry
***My Takelessons Blog Posts:***
http://takelessons.com/blog/acting-in-famous-Shakespeare-plays
http://takelessons.com/blog/how-to-have-stage-presence

My name is Larry, and I was born and raised in Chicago and now call the Phoenix, AZ metro area home. I have a Master's Degree in Education (Higher Ed. and Curriculum Development). I have a Tutoring and Educational Consulting business of my own, working with excellent education partners like Takelessons.

My tutoring business is geared towards middle, high school,and college students, and my specialization is geared in four areas:

1) The Humanities: History (U.S., European, and World), English, Literature (with a special passion for all things Shakespeare), and Social Studies (including American Government and Political Science).

2) Papers: Research papers (and how to do the
research for them), essays, creative writing - including citation & formatting.

3) Drama (the Theatre kind of drama, not life drama): Acting, directing, staging, analysis, including Shakespeare.

4) Test Prep: ACT, SAT, PSAT, ISEE, TACHS

***My Promise to You***

I will treat you like an individual - that means that we'll find out how YOU learn best, and we'll work that way. I don't teach memorization. I teach by asking and answering questions, as well as providing information.

***My Expectation of You***

That you will come with an open mind, come with questions, and a willingness to learn and have fun.

***Lesson Details***

*The Humanities*
The reason so many people go screaming into the night when confronted with lessons in things like history, or government, or English for that matter, are all the names and dates to memorize. I don't teach that way. We begin with things you want (or need) to know. From there, we cover how those things affected other things, It's a huge world out there, and how we got here from where we started is a wonderful and complicated trip. History doesn't happen in a vacuum, and we learn who we are by knowing where we come from.

*Papers*
Obviously I won't write your paper for you, but I will show you how and where to start your research (and how to sort it as well). I will also proof-read for grammar and/or organizational errors and show you how to structure it in general terms.

*Drama*
I have acted, I have directed. From the community to professional levels. We will talk about character creation, about staging, about working with your director as well as your fellow actors. We will mostly brainstorm, and you will be able to experiment in vision as well as technique.

About Ouray
Are you looking for a tutor who can make sense of math?

I love seeing that ‘lightbulb’ moment in my students when it all suddenly fits together. Math can seem complicated, but with the right guidance and tools, the dots start to connect themselves!

Over my 10+ years as a math tutor, I’ve seen how a tough math problem becomes clear as day when you have the tools and guidance to come at it from the right angle.

I teach math in person and online, using visual aids, online tools, animated discussion and lots of fun, to help my students understand the simple rules behind even the most complex concepts. I tailor each class to suit your individual needs.

Learning is an exciting process, and communication is the key. I want to see my students build knowledge, express their ideas and gain confidence on the way to passing with flying co
lors.

I tailor my lessons for excellent results in the long run. That said, it’s amazing what you can achieve in just one lesson.

Book a lesson with me today, and start connecting the dots!

ABOUT ME
With a Bachelor in Aerospace Engineering from Arizona State University, I’ve studied Aerodynamics, Rocket Propulsion, and Aircraft Vehicle design. I’ve been a professional mathematics tutor for over 10 years.

For me, math just clicks. What excites me about math is the way we can use it to make sense of everyday life, nature, and even the orbit of the planets. I strive to inspire this fascination, curiosity, and confidence in my students.

FEATURES & BENEFITS
Book a lesson with me, for:

• Lessons individually tailored to suit your needs.

• Direct one-on-one correspondence and support.

• Concise notes to help you with your studies.

• Complete step-by-step instructions for complex problems.

Having previous experience with many different math tutors, Ouray is BY FAR the best. As an ASU business student, I have been required to excel in math and this would have been absolutely impossible without Ouray. He is the friendliest, most relatable and enjoyable tutor there is. He is also incredible flexible with dates, times, and meeting spots which has made my life so much easier! From pre-calc to statistics, Ouray was always prepared and helped me to understand the material in such a simple, approachable way, completely different from that of my professors. Overall, the BEST TUTOR/PERSON you will find.

I was disappointed that the instructors page stated she would be able to meet in my home and she is not. Trang was flexible with her schedule for us to meet at her home, but that does not suit our needs at this time. Otherwise, she was kind and accommodating with her willingness to help teach.

David is very knowledgeable in writing and specially resume writing.Me and many other students in school have been advised by him for resume writing. He knows different helpful tools to use for making a very professional resume, like valid references to select the best fit words.
During the process of editing my resume he also taught me different methods to update and edit my resume by myself .He spends as much time as he thinks is required to have an excellent result. Also it was clear that due to his valuable experience he has a very wide horizon which leads to his ability of writing various writing texts.
Beside that, he is very passionate and generous to help others and definitely very active updated in the areas of his work. Truly, His nice character makes it really pleasant for anybody to work with him .

I am a former employee of David's and I had expressed interest with updating and making my resume more advanced. He gave me some of the best advice, suggestions, and even referred me to a couple of websites that proved to be very helpful. During the review process, David first pointed out all of the good aspects I had on my original resume. On the parts he thought should be tweaked or edited, he gave advice and pointers in a positive manner. He also took his time really picking apart the resume, making sure he was giving me 100% of the information that he could. With confidence, I can say I am now very proud of my resume and happy with how my strengths really stand out, thanks to the help given from David.
