Tom is a wonderful tutor. He is clear, concise and unbelievably patient. He is certainly not the type of tutor who does your work for you. He breaks the overall lesson down into easily digestible segments that build on one another. Most of the difficulty that I have had in the past was with connecting some seemingly irrelevant principle that meant nothing to me at the time it was introduced (whether grade school, junior high, or high school). With Tom's gentle guidance and an explanation of why these principles apply and are helpful, I truly understand the importance of the cumulative nature of math now. I only wish that I worked with him much earlier. I used to think of math as torture. Now I am seriously considering studying it further. What I used to view as 'magic' now appears fascinating and exciting. I owe this transformation all to Tom.
I worked with Tom for 6 weeks straight during my 6-week intensive Summer Calculus course. He was able to fundamentally break down every concept and explain it to me in a way that I could easily understand. He is dedicated to the students he works with. While working with Tom, if I wasn't understanding a topic he would extend our session and try to move his next session back in time, he does anything he can to help you really "get it." I ended up with an overall A in my calculus course. If I had to do it again, I would absolutely call Tom before anyone else.
Thomas got me on the right track very quickly. I had a boost in confidence and my performance improved tremendously. I tested out of some undergrad Algebra courses thanks to Tom!
I can say for sure, Thomas helped my daughter improve greatly. And because of his skills and to the minute timing, I will call him again.
Tom is a great tutor! He is very knowledgeable, patient and takes his time. He has truly made a difference for my son.
Thomas is absolutely great. He definitely helps you understand the concepts starting from the building blocks. Gives nice examples, is very patient, and does all that he can to make sure you succeed.
