Bio

Hello! Let's be informal - call me Tom. Education, from both sides of the classroom, has always been a part of my life. While working on both my BS and MS in Electrical Engineering at MIT I always was available to help classmates with homework and test preparation. In the process, I sometimes found that some of the most brilliant professors did not make good teachers - they solved things fast in their heads, but couldn't remember all the steps, so couldn't explain what they had done.

Hello! Let's be informal - call me Tom. Education, from both sides of the classroom, has always been a part of my life. While working on both my BS and MS in Electrical Engineering at MIT I always was available to help classmates with homework and test preparation. In the process, I sometimes found that some of the most brilliant professors did not make good teachers - they solved things fast in their heads, but couldn't remember all the steps, so couldn't explain what they had done. I have the ability to match my speed to my students needs.

My teaching and tutoring experiences have included both academic and commercial environments, with students as diverse as secretaries and senior systems analysts in industry and ages ranging from 16 (charter school students) to 65 (non-traditional junior-college students.) Most recently, I have been tutoring at the Brevard campus of Blue Ridge Community College, helping students with pre-calculus and TEAS algebra and trigonometry.

I listen to my students, both directly as they tell me what they need, and indirectly, by catching logic errors they make in trying to solve problems, and "fill in the gaps." My professional life has kept me in touch with math fundamentals, and the last three spring semesters I re-took Calculus 1, 2 and 3 for refreshers.

I want what is best for my students, and therefore teach by the rule: "There is no such thing as a bad question!"
