Perfect Tutor

Tom is a GREAT tutor! My son is starting to become more confident in his math class thanks to Tom. My son was starting to fall behind due to the on-line teaching at school. Tom is able to walk him through the problems and really help him understand the concepts. What a blessing to find him on Wyzant!
