Tom spent the last two months tutoring my high school daughter on the SAT and it was a very very positive experience. The way this works is great as when they are done with the session she was able to replay the lesson and go over it again or study at length any problems that were really troubling her. Tom has a great background literally as a rocket scientist and what was so impressive was his ability to get right to my daughters level and walk her through any problem that she had with patience and kindness. He never spoke down to her and she was very comfortable working with him. In the end her SAT score went up over 20% and she was able to hit the score that she was hoping for. We were very pleased with Tom.
Tom is able to explain math and physics concepts in a way that helps my son handle complex problems in pressured test environments. My son looks forward to his sessions with Tom and always feels more confident and relaxed after he has been able to review some tough math or physics questions with Tom. I highly recommend Tom as a tutor.
Tom is a great tutor, very well knowledgeable on the ins and outs of the GMAT and created simple ways of doing the math, and provided strategies for the Verbal section. I came to him with a very low score on my first GMAT test, and I had 3 and a half weeks to retake the test. With Tom's help, I improved by 130 points in 3 weeks when I took the test for the second time, and have been accepted to one of the schools of my choice, and have an interview coming up with another top business school. I believe that without his help, I would have not managed such an improvement in such a short time. Thanks Tom!
My tutoring sessions have been very helpful. My tutor Tom is very encouraging and has helped me tremendously with the math sections of the GRE exam. While my confidence in my math skills are very low Tom provides encouragement to keep pushing through. Can't say enough about how great and helpful this has been.
Tom is a wonderful tutor and a wonderful person at that. He is very patient and understanding. He has helped me to achieve my goals when I thought they would never be possible. If you are looking for help on the GMAT, then I would say with total and complete honesty to look no farther. At first I was worried about everything being on the computer and not the person to person interaction. However, I have found that it is even better on the computer and it is as though he is right in front of me guiding me through every problem I have. Tom is truly one of the reasons I am able to say that I will be BEATING my GMAT this time around.
I would highly recommend Tom for anyone looking for a good tutor to help them do well on a big exam. I used Tom for a firefighter test that I took recently that is similar to the ASVAB, and I could not have found a better tutor to help me with it. Tom is full of knowledge in multiple areas including test taking techniques. I don't think I would have even come close to doing as well as I did on my firefighter test without Tom's help.
Tom helped me master the GMAT, my score increased by 100 points. Quality teacher that accommodates and understands. Highly Recommended!!!
Tom, thank you for your time and enthusiastic tutoring of our daughter. We haven't gotten the result back yet, from the last ACT, but it doesn't matter. She's already been accepted into Amherst College, so she's all set. I hope that the ACT does reflect a positive increase in her biology score, but if not, that's ok, you helped her obtain some really good scores that made this great opportunity possible. I hope you have equally as much success with all your other students.
Tom was a fantastic tutor - he immediately helped me identify my weaknesses and found quick ways for me to master the concepts that were slowing me down. By doing everything online, I had a recorded lecture of everything we talked through. This was invaluable - I constantly referred to it when working on my own. But if I did have a question, he would always be available via email in between lessons. As the subject line says, in four sessions we had raised my GMAT score 50 points. Thank you Tom!!
Tom is a very thorough and effective teacher. He is able to teach not only the mechanics of the material but the theory as well. His help with the GMAT ensured my acceptance to a top 10 MBA program. I recommend him to anyone looking to achieve!
I've only had a few lessons with Tom and I can already tell you that this guy is worth every penny. He doesn't spend time teaching you tricks that you'll just forget later; on the contrary, he actually teaches you concepts and fundamentals. A+
