i recently came out of an audition and I sang my musical pieces better than I've ever done them before! The auditioner sat me down at the end and said he loves my voice. He said, based on how much he liked my pieces and how well I did that he would like to extend an early invitation for callbacks for the program! I really have Patricia to thank for that. She has helped me improve my voice by leaps and bounds in the time that i have been working with her and its amazing to get such immediate and rewarding results. I CAN NOT THANK PATRICIA ENOUGH! SHE COULD NOT HAVE PREPARED ME ANY BETTER AND IM SO GRATEFUL THAT I GET TO WORK WITH HER!!

I've been teaching World History for 4 years and my students have gone on to get both 4s and 5s on the AP Exam. I try to actively engage the student so they understand the material more confidently. This helps boost their grades in class and helps them gain skills needed later in class and in life. I personally try to work with the student in their learning style in order for them to be the most engaged. I personally received a 5 on this AP exam and received a 99 on my state World History exam. love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

"As an adult student who has struggled with creative writing, Larry has been instrumental in opening a whole new world of self expression for me. I highly recommend him for any student who wishes to either grasp fundamental skills or for the one who simply wishes to polish their own.

Additionally Larry has been able to introduce me to Shakespeare, a life long interest of mine... one which has always frustrated me do to my lack of understanding, in a non threatening, non stressful way.

Thank you Larry."

"I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!"

"Ms. Consuelo was very kind and patient with my daughter and helped her to understand concepts I was not able to help her with. She prepares assignments in advance to prepare the student and takes her time in explaining it in a way that they can really understand the math problems at the core. Thank you so much for helping my daughter again, Consuelo! We look forward to working with you again in the near future!!"

"I had a very pleasant experience working with Rod. He really made sure I knew all the material and he didn't lose patience even when I didn't get something right away. He was always available to answer phone calls with questions. He's very accommodating and wants to make things work. I feel very prepared for my GRE exam now. Before my sessions I was completely lost and didn't know where to begin. He is really knowledgable in everything that he teaches. I highly recommend him."

Interested in learning how to write a haiku? In this article, you'll learn about the rich history of haiku poems, and get to take a stab at writing your own.
