About Tom

Dear Student,

My name is Tom and I would love to have the opportunity to help you succeed in your studies! I have taught Mathematics for three decades from pre-algebra thru calculus. I love to see a student "light up" when he or she finally grasps a math concept and is able to solve a math problem! I've been like this since I started teaching. It's a great feeling to see a student succeed in something that was so difficult at first.
I love LANGUAGE and MATH is the purest of all languages. It is not open for interpretation. It is the MOST precise language in the world ! 2x=5x-3 has only ONE answer.
I have been teaching Italian (la lingua di Dante Alighieri ) and English (ESL) for the last eight years ! It is so wonderful to see a student succeed in learning another language! I have taught many students who can communicate in a foreign language after only three months!!!!! Of course, most students want to speak!

I have also taught TOEFL test preparation. I really enjoy teaching the reading and writing sections- typically the two hardest sections for students.
GRE and GMAT are also tests that I have much success in preparing students to take in order to be accepted in a Master's program in the United States !
I have spent most of my life teaching and have so many great techniques. I would welcome the chance to help you as well !

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.

Finite Math

I have a degree in math ed. I have been teaching math for 35 years. I love tutoring. Guaranteed to help my students. Thanks.

Piano

I have studied music for years and years. I have played both the piano and the organ in churches- Catholic and Protestants for decades. I also have been the accompanist for many singing groups, ie, the Firendship Singers in Tampa Florida. I also accompanied the chorus
at West Tampa Middle School in the eighties.

Patient and Encouraging — Tom G. is a very patient and enthusiastic math tutor. He guides his students through each problem step by step to ensure that the student not only understands what is being taught, but grasps the concepts for future use. Tom is encouraging and builds his students confidence in what is for most, a very intimidating subject. I am enjoying not only the tutoring, but his positive attitude and joyous ...
