We had recently moved to Georgia and our daughter was struggling with the dramatic change in the Math curriculum. After trying several options, this was our last resort. In a few short sessions, she went from a failing grade to a 95% on her last test. I can't thank Tom enough for what he has done. Not only have her grades improved, but her self confidence in her Math abilities has climbed as well. He is a great teacher that cares about his students and who encourages and lifts them to their full potential.
Per my son, Tom was very informative, professional, and kept him on a good pace during the session. We will hopefully continue to use his services till the testing is complete.
Update on my son's progress after 3 months working with Tom from June 7th SAT results. Last year: Math 490, Reading 590, Writing 470. This year after tutoring: Math 610, Reading 620, Writing 590. Total increase: 1550 to 1820. Thanks again.
I reached out to Tom, and right away he got back to me. We discussed the areas my nine year old son needed help in. And that following week he came to my home and began tutoring my son. Tom L. is very professional. He comes prepared and on time. We have had 3 sessions. He is teaching my son some math skills for CRCT testing.
Tom has been helping my 10th grader with Geometry. After 2 failed tests at the beginning of the year, I contacted Tom. He is always on time, reliable, and knowledgeable. My daughter says that she learns best from Tom. Her grades have improved since she started working with him. She has not had any failed test grades. Tom has been a life-saver!
We are very blessed to have found Tom! He is very patient and extremely thorough in explaining concepts to our daughter. Tom has discovered our daughter's strengths and weaknesses in Geometry and works with her to allow her to gain more understanding of the subject.
The first lesson went great! He connected with our son, offered insightful feedback and we look forward to moving ahead with his plan.
We have been using Tom for about three weeks now and I can already see an improvement in our son's abilities. Tom really connects with him and was able to quickly assess where his opportunities were. Outstanding tutor!!
Mr. L tutored me in SAT Math. Not only is he gifted in math, but he is very well-informed about the test. He knows what types of problems are most likely to appear on the test and how questions are most likely to be asked. He helped me increase my knowledge of SAT math in general and also of specific SAT test-taking strategies. He taught me how to solve problems more quickly, as I would have a very limited amount of time on the test. With Mr. L, I learned to recognize what type of problem I was being asked and what strategies to employ in solving it. I felt much more prepared for the test thanks to his help and did see a great increase in my score. Thank you Mr. L!
I'm impressed with the patience and compassion Tom exhibits for his students. He genuinely cares about them and wants them to succeed.
I've been very pleased with the way Tom has worked with my son, and we're already seeing positive improvement on his math tests. Tom's punctual, cheerful and has a good way of connecting.
Tom was able to help our daughter immediately. He is responsive, communicates with the parents and student in a professional manner. We have since scheduled weekly sessions, and truly believe her grades will improve. Thanks Tom!
We have just started tutorial sessions with Tom for my 8th grade son in Algebra. We are off to a great start. Tom knows the material well and presents it in a manner that my son finds very straightforward and easy to follow. He seems to really care and our son feels comfortable asking questions and working the problems with him. First test an "A" after our time with him. So far we are impressed with the whole WyzAnt process.
I was struggling with a prerequisite class for my MBA. Statistics is not even interesting to me but with Tom's help, I was able to get through the required course. He actually likes that stuff! Tom was also available; he made it easy to schedule appointments. Thanks, Tom.
Tom has made a difference in my daughter's studies. Her grades have come up. He has showed her ways of studying as well. She just loves how he is thorough and knowledgeable and has patience with her. I would recommend him.
Tom was on time to our home, where he met with everyone and got right down to business with our 5th grader. He patiently listened to "mom" explain what she felt about the challenges and expectations with a smile. The session covered review of past material, worked on new concepts and even went over foundational information and techniques that were lost in translation over the years. Tom was patient and had a very positive attitude. He was able to explain techniques to my fifth grader and I saw her able to work out problems that had her completely stomped. His schedule is a little tight and you have to calendar week by week, other than that my fifth grader said she was able to understand him and follow what he was trying to explain. Overall we were impressed with his professionalism with us "parents" and his gentle affect with our daughter. He's a keeper!
We sought Tom's services for our son who was having trouble with 8th grade Algebra. Tom quickly connected with our son and learned that he was having trouble understanding a few key concepts. Once they reviewed the key issues identified by Tom, our boy was completing the work on his own. We are sticking with Tom as he has done a great job.
Our first session with Tom was great. I have 2 boys, one in 10th grade and one in 5th grade. Tom was able to effectively relate to both of them. He was extremely knowledgeable on the subjects, patient with the boys, and engaging and interesting enough to keep my 10 year old's attention for 2 hours. I was very impressed that he was able to assess their individual weaknesses and strengths after just one session. Both boys said they really enjoyed working with him. I'm looking forward to more sessions and seeing the progress I'm sure they will make!
Both of my boys were apprehensive about tutoring. Tom made them comfortable and helped them to be comfortable with asking questions. We plan to continue working with Tom and expect that this will really help make Math a strong subject for them.
