About Tom


Bio

Looking for one of the most experienced, least expensive tutors on Wyzant's platform? I really enjoy teaching and tutoring mathematics. Because I just retired, I am new on Wyzant's platform, but I have spent 45 years teaching and tutoring everything from prealgebra to linear algebra at the high school and college level. I can tutor SAT math, ACT math, and all secondary mathematics topics as well as college mathematics including calculus 1-3, statistics, differential equations and linear...

Looking for one of the most experienced, least expensive tutors on Wyzant's platform? I really enjoy teaching and tutoring mathematics. Because I just retired, I am new on Wyzant's platform, but I have spent 45 years teaching and tutoring everything from prealgebra to linear algebra at the high school and college level. I can tutor SAT math, ACT math, and all secondary mathematics topics as well as college mathematics including calculus 1-3, statistics, differential equations and linear algebra. I emphasize understanding concepts and use interesting applications to motivate students. I scored 800 on the SAT Math and Math Level 2. In 2001, I was selected as the Maryland College Math Teacher of the Year. I am the author of a college math textbook for training mathematics teachers used by about 100,000 students. I have New York State Teacher certification for Grades 7-12.

Knowledgeable and excellent!

Tom explains concepts well and is patient. He is very helpful :) I would recommend him highly to anyone! we are very lucky to have met him - Thank you Professor Tom!

Liz, 2 lessons with Tom

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

For every lesson, I compile a file with SAT questions that I do not understand so I can review them with Tom. This is a very efficient way of prepping because that way we can focus on improving my understanding of problems that do not make sense to me rather than go over ones I already do understand. Tom always provides in-depth explanations with visual examples of a variety of math problems; he's helped me understand a great deal of practice questions ranging from trig, pre-calc, statistics, graphing, and different math formulas!

Great statistics tutor

We were doing power tests and two tailed t statistics with graphs. We also discussed confidence intervals and how to compute them. We reviewed hypothesis testing and formulas
