About Tom

My name is Tom.

I am an experienced Math and Science teacher of 27 years. I currently teach Math, SAT Prep and Michigan History at Pinckney High School. I have taught all levels of math, from 7th grade Math up to Calculus (including Geometry and Trigonometry). I have also taught High School Physics. I enjoy teaching and I have a knack for it. I have had many students over the years come back and tell me how much they learned in my classroom. I am a graduate from Michigan State University, and I hold a Masters in History from Eastern Michigan. I am certified to teach 6-12 in Math, Science and History in the State of Michigan. I have tutored students from Howell, Brighton, Fowlerville, Hartland and Pinckney over the years. In my spare time I am an avid Mountain Biker.

Typically as a tutor, I see myself primarily as helping the student to understand his or her homework, and look for "gaps" in understanding that lead to academic difficulties. My "curriculum" is really set by the student's needs in the subject area. I also provide pointers to help the student's study skills.

I am very familiar with the Howell and Pinckney school systems (as I am a teacher in Pinckney and have had children in the Howell school system), and also tutor many students from Brighton and Hartland.
I hope to hear from you.

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.

Geometry

I have been a math teacher for 24 years and have taught Geometry for the last 10 years.
