I'm Tom. I have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a Master's and Ph.D degrees in Mathematics Education. I have been a college math professor for over 30 years. I have taught just about every math course offered: from Basic Mathematics through the Calculus sequence. I have tutored students in all of these courses. I tutor elementary, junior high, high school, and college students. I have tutored several students for the mathematics portion of the SAT and ACT. My students have been able to increase their scores significantly on the SAT and ACT tests with the help of my tutoring.

I am very patient and encouraging with the students that I tutor. I always explain thoroughly how to solve the problem. If there is more than one way to solve a problem, I will work with the student to determine which method works best for a particular student. By doing this, the student will better understand and remember how to correctly solve the problem. When students are solving the problems. I guide them and give them insights to help them solve the problem efficiently. This is especially important on timed tests like the SAT and ACT. My mathematics knowledge gives me the ability to provide for extremely effective and precise mathematics tutoring. I am able to determine why students are not able to solve the problem and if any mistakes that hey are making so that they learn how to correctly solve the problem.

Knowledge of all levels of mathematics and my teaching and tutoring experiences. Tutor in the following courses:
High School courses: Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre- Calculus, AP Calculus, AP Statistics,
Finite Mathematics
College courses: Basic Mathematics, Pre-Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Liberal Arts Mathematics, Finite Mathematics

I am easy to reach and will always provide fast responses. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson.
