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.

Excellent!
Tom helped my son understand the concepts he needed to complete his algebra work. Tom was thorough, patient and very knowledgeable! We so appreciate the time he spent with my son and we will definitely be calling on him again for help in the future.

Knowledgeable and a great tutor
Tom took the time to help me with several problems. He is very patient and explains each problem so you have a better understanding once you are done. I would highly recommend Tom and I will be using him again.

Thank you!
Tom really spent time with my daughter to understand her weakness with fractions. It helped calm her nerves before her test and she knows what she needs to focus on.

Calm and sure
Tom was calm and confident in dealing with my son, Declan. He kept the lesson moving, but it didn't feel at all rushed. Anyone that can get him to ask "to do another one" when it comes to math, is one to go with.

Prepared and patient
Tom helped my daughter with geometry. He came prepared and stayed longer than we had booked until she was comfortable working problems. I am expecting a better test result.

Approachable Geometry Tutor
Tom is thorough in his tutoring skill. He is also very approachable and easy to talk to. My son said Tom really helped him understand because no only does he teach, but he encourages him and helps build his self confidence. Thank you Tom.
