"Makes Calculus Easy"
- Kevin, Park Ridge, IL on 3/19/13
Tom is a great tutor and is extremely UNDERSTANDING, PATIENT, and knows how to approach math problems from a STUDENT PERSPECTIVE. I contacted him a week before a huge test, and he was understanding and helped me understand all the test material within a week. He truly cared how I did on the exam, and gave me individualized attention- he even contacted me after to ask how the exam went. He saved my grade and I made a great decision in contacting him. Personally, I think he is great because he is able to quickly realize your areas of weaknesses and correct them and it is obvious he has experience tutoring students. Also, he teaches you the concepts behind the material so that you have a better understanding of it and you are able to handle various problems without memorizing the steps and not grasping the concepts. I think this is a critical component of doing well in subjects like math and the sciences. Great tutor, great guy. Thank you Tom!

Tom O. has done a great job in helping my child become more confident in her ability to master AP Statistics. Tom translates concepts into accessible formats and my child's performance has improved because of that.
"A Professional Tutor "
- Laura, Chicago, IL on 4/27/14
Tom is very patient and helpful. He has never made my 17 year old son feel dumb when he didn't understand a concept. He works with my son's schedule and is easy to contact. He replies to emails/texts very quickly and has always been on time for the lessons. He worked with me to find a good location and time for his lessons. He takes the time to explain everything and makes sure the concepts are understood. I would definitely recommend Tom as a tutor.

Tom's ability diagnose and address one's issues with mathematics is unequivocal. He is a master of his craft and he has been a huge help since we first started working together. It goes without saying that I look forward to continue utilizing Tom as my tutor for business calculus II.

Tom is very effective in working with our son. His grade in pre-calculus is up significantly. Tom has developed a great connection with our son and he is soaking the material in at a very fast rate.
We ran into a sub-par teacher in the public high school who probably needs to find a new profession. Tom has helped to redeem the situation and given our son the chance to work his way back from a D to a B. Online tutoring is not cheap but our son is worth it.
A relieved parent.
"Very Patient and Kind"
- Johnathan, Chicago, IL on 10/3/13
I was looking to switch careers and I needed science and math courses. Being out of school for a while, the transition was tough to get back into the the swing of things. Tom is very patient and understanding. I've struggled in area's with my teachers and Tom has been great to stay on something as long as we need until I feel comfortable with the information. He also has a very calming aura about him so the tutoring environment is relaxed but focused. Would absolutely recommend!!

Tom is a great tutor because he explains concepts in a way I can understand. He is very patient and makes sure I get it before we go on. I've never had such a good math teacher.

Tom patiently works with my learning style and is easily reachable. He is also super knowledgeable about the subject he's teaching.

We had to review the rate of change for several types of situations. Tom had to re-explain and correct what I did incorrectly.

Tom O. is very patient and has been helping my son with Algebra and Physics. I can highly recommend him. He is very punctual as well.
"Prompt response and very patient!"

Tom showed up right on time and started the tutoring session right away. He assessed my daughters learning needs and tailored their session to fit her. All in all, we were very happy and we'll be using Tom again.

Mr. Tom O. is a very methodical, and knowledgeable tutor. His tutoring of college physics to my son, has significantly helped him with this subject. He is thorough and explains in simple language. He is a very dependable tutor.
"Fabulous! A Lifesaver"
- Andrew, Park Ridge, IL on 9/3/12
I was lost on how to even begin my Statics assignment and Differential Math assignment. The deadline for completion was very near and Tom O. came to my rescue pronto. He really knew the subject matter and helped me get a handle on how to complete the assignments. He was an excellent instructor as well. I would use Tom O. again and would recommend him to everyone. He gets a 5 Star Rating in all categories.
"Best Tutor Ever"
- Patryk, Harwood Heights, IL on 2/12/12
Tom was great and has responded to my short notice email really quickly. You will have no problem reaching Tom. If you are having trouble with Physics that is exactly what you should do, email Tom. As a college student I have a lot of experience with professors and teaching assistants who know their material but are unable to pass it on to their students in a simple and understandable way. Tom did exactly that, going over the fundamentals of physics and giving me the best notes on the subject. I learned more in that two hours with Tom then during my entire three weeks of class.
- Joseph, Chicago, IL on 2/7/12
Tom has demonstrated a great deal of patience instructing a difficult subject. He has identified areas of concern that need to be addressed and made my daugther feel comfortable in understanding the subject matter.
