So helpful and nice! — Tom is clearly knowledgeable in the subject, and really there isn't a question he doesn't have the answer to. I learned more from just meeting and talking with him, then from reading my book or attending my class lectures. He is very flexible with times, and really wants his students to do well. HIGHLY recommended. Thanks again for all your help Tom! ...
