The best choice for us!

We have struggled with math and my daughter for many years! This summer we decided to get her help and hired Tam Pham as her tutor. This was the best choice we ever made! She just started 8th grade and has received A's in all her assignments and her confidence is through the roof! I highly recommend Tam Pham!

A tutor with great teaching skills!

Tam reviewed Math concepts with my son. He and my son got along well. He seemed patient and tried to put his best forward to clear concepts that needed attention. Overall my son was comfortable and very satisfied with him and plans to continue taking lessons to further refine his skills.

He's great!

Mr. Tam has helped me with Accounting 1 and Accounting 2! I've received A's in both classes because of him. He's very patient with his students, and actually wants you to learn the material given. If you're in the area and need additional help with anything, he's the guy to contact. Very dependable and very good at what he does. Thanks Mr. Tam!

Wonderful Teacher

My child thinks Mr. Tam is a wonderful teacher and wishes he could be her instructor for every math class. He is very thorough and patient.

Thanks for your guidance!

I had never considered using a tutor whatsoever until I realized that I needed help understanding my weather homework. I was only able to get with my tutor three times before my final and my actual instructor for my class was not helpful at all BUT Mr. P was awesome! He helped me to understand what he believed I needed to know especially in just three visits; had I more funds available, I would have met with him more often. I passed my weather class as a result of Mr. P's guidance and understanding which was something that my actual instructor lacked. Thanks Mr. P! :) My student adviser had placed me into meteorology courses that were dealing with math equations that I had never dealt with and I probably would be dealing with them later down the road. Mr. P was able to walk me through, a majority I understand while the rest was difficult, but he was patient with me. My online instructor was having us work out our problems, according to Mr. P, as the long way of learning the process, but, Mr. P was able to show me the easiest ways to work the problems. He took my grade before I got with him, 70%, and helped to get me back to my 80%. I passed my math class with an 82%! Thanks again Mr. P! (5/6/13)

He is the best local mathematics tutor

Mr. P has many years of experience teaching mathematics, which becomes obvious when working one on one. He explains materials in a concise and detailed manner without even needing to consult a textbook, yet can explain concepts in a simple matter that all students can readily understand. He is patient and very accommodating to schedule times. Mr. P genuinely cares about the student's grades, and will do anything necessary to ensure his students learn the material. I worked with him for a semester on Trigonometry, and easily earned above a 100%. Without hesitation, he is highly recommended.

Martin, 28 lessons with Tam

Really helping my daughter.

We are 3 sessions into the tutoring and he has helped my daughter raise her grade from an 84 to an 89, with some higher 95 plus marks on her recent work. Her goal was to get an A in AP math and with Tam's help and teaching skills it looks like she will earn it.
