About Tom

Hello. My name is Tom S., and I would like to help you with your math course. I have had the privilege of tutoring over 70 students this past two years (with much success) in Pre-Calculus, Algebra 1/2 and 3/4, Geometry, Pre-Algebra and SAT/ACT Math. My students typically improve two grade levels, and feel much more confident! My goal for my SAT students is to help them reach their potential, with a goal of improving 100 points on the math portion of the test.

I have also enjoyed teaching Algebra 3/4 at IUPUI for five years with great results, Pre-Calculus at Herron High School, and more recently middle school math at Central Catholic School. I enjoy developing relationships with my students to help them understand mathematical concepts and develop confidence in their own abilities. We'll work together to help you do well in your current math course and to build a solid foundation for the future!

I also believe that learning can be enjoyable...ask any of my 1,000 past and current students. I will work very hard to help you to be successful in your middle school, high school, and college math courses.

Test Preparation:
ACT Math,
GED,
SAT Math

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I have been teaching and tutoring the elements on the ACT Math Section Test for over five years with great success for my students. Most of the 60 questions on the Math Section Test are algebra and geometry questions, with four trigonometry questions also included.

Algebra 1

I have tutored many middle and high school students with Algebra 1, learning how to best help them understand the concepts along the way. I have also been teaching high school Algebra for the past five years.

Algebra 2

I have tutored over two dozen high school and college students with Intermediate Algebra this past year.

GED

My well-rounded background and experience working as a teacher and tutor gives me the tools needed to help you prepare for your GED test. I can help refresh your understanding of basic (elementary) concepts, as well as help improve your middle and high school math skills. I will help you to succeed!

Geometry

I have tutored ten students this past year in High School Geometry with great success.

Prealgebra

I have had the pleasure to work with half a dozen middle school students this past year taking Pre-algebra. Pre-algebra is a bridge that links middle school math concepts involving short computations to the more process driven algebraic courses. I work with students to develop habits that will help them to be successful with high school math.

SAT Math

I have been teaching and tutoring the topics on the SAT Math Section and the SAT Level 2 Subject Test for over five years with great success for my students. I will effectively guide you through study guide questions and topics and help you to fill in any gaps in your understanding. You will also be coached on effective test-taking strategies.

Best tutor ever!!!

He was very helpful explaining the problems to me in a way that I could understand. He also has a very positive attitude knowing that any problem can be solved. One of the best tutors out there.
