I've worked with students to strengthen their math skills for years. I work alongside your classroom assignments, reinforcing current topics while reviewing previous material that may have not been mastered. I focus on building confidence alongside content knowledge so that students feel comfortable in the classroom to have success.

About Doug L.

Hi! I'm a warm and positive educator with years of experience helping students in music, math, and social studies. I have six years of public school teaching and private lesson experience in New Jersey, and I have recently relocated to the Austin metropolitan area. I am excited to help people further their knowledge and skills in areas they have a unique interest or area where they feel the need to improve.

It would be my pleasure to meet with you at your home, host you at my place, or work over the internet.

Our son thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and he made a point to ask questions when he wasn't clear on instruction. I could tell this music composition was very complex (for his age) and Doug patiently worked through the questions and made really helpful recommendations.

Doug is awesome! Doug is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I would recommend him to anyone desiring to pursue their musical interests. I feel totally comfortable with him teaching me the Flugelhorn.
