"Thad is a great tutor!"
Joseph, 5 lessons with Thad
I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My wife and I came to Hawai‘i on our honeymoon in 2001 & moved here in 2002. I have been working as a mathematics tutor for more than ten years. I really enjoy it. The world of math contains some really cool things, the Mandelbrot set, Klein bottles, and Hilbert's hotel to name just a few. I like to introduce students to these and other similar, fun topics while tying them to their current classroom material. Understanding where one can go with math makes it much easier, even if we never venture there.
In Hawaii, many students are lost in their current course because they did not do well in a previous course (bad teacher, lack of enthusiasm, etc.). By being aware of that I can quickly help a student fill in the missing gaps in their knowledge and get back on track.
I can help students prepare for exams including PSAT, SAT, ACT, ASVAB, & GRE.
I worked with students as young as second grade and at the other end of the age spectrum, I have worked with a few grandparents. I can work with you, too!
Thad is a great tutor!
Thad has done a great job coaching and mentoring me through business statistics. He is patient and understands how to explain the work in a way that is easy to understand. He has patience and a sense of humor that makes completing the work enjoyable. I would recommend Thad to anyone who is tackling a math course of any type. He is great tutor!Joseph, 5 lessons with Thad
If I would have had him as a Math teacher back in high school, my life would have been different, I would have invented interest in numbers :) Very reasonable teaching with a good sense of humor. It all makes sense now :)Julia, 5 lessons with Thad
Professional and Patient
Thad was really patient with me. He understood right away that I needed statistics explained and shown to me in a very simplified manner. As a 40 year old adult going to college, mathematics doesn't always make sense to me. We've already booked my next session; looking forward to it.Luis, 1 lesson with Thad
Awesome patient instructor
Thad is an amazing instructor. He explains the problems in ways that makes it easier to understand. He also has a lot of availability which I really like.Sheila, 7 lessons with Thad
Discrete Math is Hard... Thad made it Easy!
I'm a 23 year military service member and combat vet. Mathematics is not my strongest subject and I've been working on my BS in Computer Information Systems for some time. When Discrete Math came up as my next course I knew I'd need help. Thad was very patient, professional and the guy knows his stuff. He does a excellent job at giving you great examples and analogies to help you grasp the concepts.Timothy, 13 lessons with Thad
We are very happy with the tutoring sessions. We started during the Summer just as a "Summer School" requirement, but have decided to keep having the tutoring throughout the school year. My son is currently in 8th grade and he is actually enjoying Math class at school because he is not "lost" anymore. My son says that "Mr. Thad is patient and explains things in a very understandable way."Patricia, 21 lessons with Thad
