Great tutor

Tom is very patient and very knowledgeable. When I don't understand something he explains it as many ways as possible until it makes sense. I am very bad at math and he is very patient when it comes to me asking questions and not understanding.

Jessica, 6 lessons with Tom

Tom is knowledgeable and patient.

Tom helped me to prepare for the GRE. He is enthusiastic and offers different explanations to help my understanding of different math concepts. I would recommend him.

Crystal, 5 lessons with Tom

Awesome! Friendly and knowledgeable

Tom is great. He is really knowledgeable in math he is able to break problems down and explain what they are saying. I am starting to feel more confident preparing for my exam. He is very patient and we are able to work through many problems during our time together. Now that we have met a few times I am starting to feel like this is a good investment and I am looking forward to working with him in the coming weeks.

Does not know AP Physics

Not one of the problems that Tom helped my daughter with was correct. It was a waste of his time and my money. AP Physics is a very difficult course and not for everyone.

Irene, 11 lessons with Tom

Very knowledgeable and patient!

Tom has done a great job of helping me better understand the GRE, especially the math section. His patience and ability to explain the material has vastly improved my confidence - that alone has been worth every penny. Some people have a natural ability to teach, and Tom is definitely one of those. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help, regardless of their age or level.
