Larry began tutoring mathematics while in high school by helping fellow students at McCallie and friends at other schools who asked for help. He first received payment for tutoring while he was a freshman at UTC when he worked for the Mathematics Department as a tutor for students who requested help. When Larry was in his first quarter as a senior at Georgia Tech, the School of Mathematics approached him about becoming a Teaching Assistant for the school's freshman calculus classes. Larry took the job, and soon discovered that he loved it. He continued as a teaching assistant for freshman calculus throughout his graduate studies, and became one of the more popular TAs with the students simply because English was his first language. Students from other TAs would frequently attend Larry's classes because they could actually understand what he said!

His duties included holding one hour problem solving sessions three days a week for each class (his last three quarters at Tech he taught two classes per quarter) that he was assigned, working regular hours in the School of Mathematics' walk-in tutoring workshop, grading homework, grading tests, reviewing and explaining the test results, and assisting the professors in other miscellaneous 'gopher' type work. During his last two quarters in graduate school, Larry also work for the College of Engineering in their walk-in tutoring workshop. As an offshoot of his work for Georgia Tech, Larry received many extra, paid one-on-one tutoring jobs from students on campus. Throughout college, Larry tutored students in differential, integral, and multi-variable calculus, linear algebra, and ordinary differential equations. Since receiving his masters degree, Larry has tutored mathematics on and off for the last 23 years with the majority of that time being spent with middle school and high school students taking algebra and geometry.
