About Thomas

Hello Students and Parents,

My experience and education will make me your perfect tutor. First, I have 12 years of teaching and tutoring experience at the middle and high school levels covering all subjects Pre-Algebra through Calculus; including honors classes. I have taught community college general math and tutored many students in the past. I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Mathematics Education and hold a valid IL teaching certificate. Recently, I completed another degree, this time in Actuarial Science.

When I was younger I was good at math but not great. I had problems just like many students do. This allows me to understand the problems you or your children are having. Now, I am great at math and I know how students' minds work and can help them achieve success.

I love to teach. I care more about students learning than about the money. That is why my rates are lower than most other tutors. Many parents and students cannot afford the higher rates but they still deserve a quality tutor.
