Great Algebra 1 tutor

Thanks to Thomas, I'm more confident with my math skills. I had forgotten many things, but quickly picked up because Thomas explains things so well and I can tell you that he takes his time with you. I notified Thomas that I needed to meet earlier than expected and he was able to adjust to my schedule which i cant thank him enough for. Over all a great tutor, thanks Thomas.

Martin, 2 lessons with Thomas

Dedicated tutor

Thomas responds quickly and asked for my daughters geometry materials prior to meeting with her. He had reviewed her work and was able to quickly connect with her and focus on where she needed the most help. He gave her strategies to help her work more efficiently. Highly recommend Thomas.

Rebecca , 5 lessons with Thomas

Great Tutoring Experience!

Tom has been a great Algebra tutor for our teenaged son! His technique, patience and ability to keep him engaged in the lessons and content is superb!!! With Tom's sessions, we have noticed improved confidence and focus in our son's Math work!

Ty, 12 lessons with Thomas

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor.

Thomas went out of his way to help my Daughter better understand Geometry. Thomas was very patient and even recommended websites to help my Daughter further with her Math lessons. Thomas also spent a few extra minutes making sure my Daughter understood everything they covered in the Tutor lesson.

Tia, 55 lessons with Thomas

Patient and Passionate

Definitely someone who cares about education. He connected with my 6th grader and explained things on his level. He even brought rewards! This was my first time using Wyzant and I’ve already booked a second appointment. Definitely worth it!

Jenea , 3 lessons with Thomas

Kid tested! Kid approved!

Tom arrived on time and was very professional. After the first session, my girls gave Tom 2 thumbs up! They practiced lots of different questions. They felt better prepared for the midterm. Thank you!
