My name is Tom.
I am an experienced Math and Science teacher of 22 years. I currently teach Math at Pinckney High School. I have taught all levels of math, from 7th grade Math up to Calculus (including Geometry and Trigonometry). I have also taught High School Physics. I enjoy teaching and I have a knack for it. I have had many students over the years come back and tell me how much they learned in my classroom. I am a graduate from Michigan State University, and I hold a Masters in History from Eastern Michigan. I am certified to teach 6-12 in Math, Science and History in the State of Michigan. Though new to WyzAnt, I have tutored students from Howell and Pinckney over the years. In my spare time I am an avid Mountain Biker.

My "curriculum" is really set by the student's needs in the subject area. I also provide pointers to help the student's study skills.
I am very familiar with the Howell and Pinckney school systems (as I am a teacher in Pinckney and have had children in the Howell school system), and personally know many of the Howell teachers and counselors.
I hope to hear from you.
