I have had the privilege of tutoring over 90 students this past five years (with much success) in Pre-Calculus, Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, 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 2 at IUPUI, Pre-Calculus at Herron High School, Middle School Math at Central Catholic School, and currently Algebra, Geometry and Design Thinking at Purdue Polytechnic High School. I develop 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.
Patient and Helpful Tutor
My daughter comes back from sessions with more confidence and skill in math and the ACT testing. She says he is encouraging and helpful in showing her how to tackle problems from an angle she hadn't been taught. We are very happy.Kendall, 9 lessons with Tom
Great math tutor for algebra
He has a lot of wisdom in math, is very patient, and kind. He makes sure his student understand what was being taught. Thank you so much for your help. I am glad you were my child's tutor.Rachelle, 1 lesson with Tom

Stop Searching For a Tutor
If you need someone to reach the "hard to reach" student- Tom is your guy. Our son was completely lost and confused and resolved to flunk algebra, again- with Tom's help, he is working independently on his Algebra lessons in summer school, and has made nothing short of MIRACLES happen with Tom's direction and encouragement. The confidence our son has gained is worth every penny!! I am certain he will finally be passing algebra, and with a new found sense of accomplishment and pride. Thanks, Tom.Kim, 6 lessons with Tom
Only wish we had found Tom sooner!
We have been so incredibly pleased with our daughter's experience working with Tom. We originally sought his services for help with the Math portion of her SAT and after two months of working with him, her SAT math score rose by 50 points. Our daughter asked if she could continue working with him for rest of the school year for Algebra II and ended the school year with a 97 % in the class! Our daughter really enjoyed working with Tom. He helped her not only with with her understanding of the subject matter, but most importantly he helped her gain confidence in herself. After she started working with Tom, we noticed a huge decrease in her frustration level and she stopped saying she wasn't smart in math. We had tried another tutor before Tom, but our daughter didn't feel they explained things well and dreaded her sessions. Choosing Tom to help help her was one of the best decisions we could have made for her and I'm just sorry we didn't find him sooner.Jennifer, 13 lessons with Tom
Tom is an awesome tutor. He takes the time to explain things to my daughter and really listens to what she has to say. She actually looks forward to her time with Tom! She's starting to use problem solving skills to figure things out on her before just giving up. Looking forward to a summer of getting ahead of the game and preparing for 8th grade math next year! Thanks Tom!DeAndra, 66 lessons with Tom

Tom S. Was a fabulous tutor for my son. His knowledge of Geometry is undeniable. He instilled confidence in my son at test time and made doing homework problems a breeze.
