Before a career in the US Army defense organization TRADOC, I was a middle school and high school mathematics teacher and coach in Iowa for six years. I taught courses ranging from remedial math to algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. I also regularly applied upper level mathematics in my duties as an Operations Research Analyst in federal service. I adjust my style of tutoring to the needs and abilities of my students, much the same way as a coach develops a game plan according to the...

The BEST!
Tom was great. My daughter Hailey gave him two thumbs up and after just one session she was able to have the light bulb go off for pre-ap Algebra II. I am so grateful that he could accommodate such short notice and come to our house to help her! We will definitely use him from now on with all her tutoring in math.

Worth every penny!
Tom is a Godsend for my daughter! After only one lesson she is looking forward to the next. She isn’t tearful and stressed about math today which is a relief as a parent. We will continue to use him on a regular basis!

Great Teacher!
Tom is an extremely patient person and also very kind! My daughter was at a complete loss trying to understand algebra and one lesson with Tom she said that it was easier than she though. So that’s a win on my book! We’ll definitely use his services again!

Excellent
My son really liked Tom and he typically does not like anyone. We have used numerous tutors sporadically over the years but never found anyone he liked enough to see consistently. He didn’t do well on his last test Friday and we needed to prepare for a final for Tuesday in geometry. Not only did he respond quickly, but made himself available at the last minute and on a Sunday! I truly appreciated it because I was in panic mode not being to help son in a subject I don’t recall/. understand. I did not want to leave son to have to review everything right before his final. He was also able to narrow down the actual issue...which was not that he didn’t understand the concept, but that he wasn’t taking the time to actually read the question and answer specifically. Thank you Tom! I highly recommend him!

Helpful and patient!
Tom was very patient and thorough. We will be working with him again. He took the time to explain the relationships between the concepts and how they relate.

Our son enjoyed Mr. Tom and the methods he utilized. He was very helpful and answered all my questions and concerns. We would most definitely work with him again. Based off today’s experience I would recommend him.

Very knowledgeable and skilled Tutor!
Tom is very flexible with his schedule and has helped my daughter in multiple math subjects. He is patient and easy to understand. My daughter's grade in Alg II is now and A and has gotten A's on her most recent Geometry tests! Greatly improved throughout this year working with Tom.

Tom really helped me to understand liner regression. I have worked with Tom in the past and he is a pleasure to work with. He is knowledgeable and takes time to explain a problem. If you need a tutor look no further. Thanks, Tom.
