About Tom

Poker is my passion, true, but there are many other subjects I can help you with. I have a relaxed style that will let the student progress at their own pace. If there is something they are stuck with or do not understand, we can analysize the subject from different perspectives until it becomes clear. Sometimes unorthodoxy is the best approach and we can make learning fun in the process, Poker is my passion, true, but there are many other subjects I can help you with.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

GED

I am here to help any student who needs to pass his/her GED. Most people have probably been out of school for some time so they need help re-establishing the study habits necessary to not only pass the GED but in other facets of their lives. We will work on the subjects the student has the most trouble with and try to break it down into segments to make it less foreboding. I have an easy going approach, no wooden ruler across the knuckles but rather what I hope is an enjoyable experience.

Poker

Poker is not a hobby for sinners. It is a highly cognitive sport that requires a great deal of logic and concentration. In this course I will take a few of the more popular casino games and walk you through the fundamentals. We will go at your pace and if time permits we will delve into the nuances of the games so that you will feel more confident if you play at a casino, fund raiser or at a friend's party.

Public Speaking

I will train you in the art of Public Speaking. Starting with the basics, writing a good speech, working on poise, developing stage presence and giving the audience what they want, namely information presented in an entertaining and interesting way. We go at your pace, I will act as a coach and a dispassionate observer. Within a few weeks we can increase your confidence many fold.
