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.
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.
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.
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.
Very happy with the results, it's amazing that communication with the tutor and student is excellent to grasp, that work for us.

Tom has been very helpful in helping my 16 year old with his Algebra II. He's patient, and he sends me a report of everything they go over during their session. He has been great!
My daughter was really struggling in her structures 1 and 2 at the U of A. We were looking for help and I was fortunate to come across this sight and to find Tom who has helped her and boosted her confidence so much!!
Thanks Tom we both really appreciate you so much!!
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.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
