“**Knowledgeable and Patient**”

I have a Master's Degree in Statistics from Rice University. I have many years of experience as a practicing statistician. I have math teaching experience, having taught everything from eighth-grade math to university statistics. In addition, I have extensive tutoring experience in numerous mathematical fields.

What I enjoy most about

Background Check:
Passed

Tom is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Tom to get started.

Tom helped me prepare for my upcoming Calculus BC test. We worked a wide variety of problems that involved calculating derivatives, understanding the definition as a limit of a difference ratio, and finding tangent lines, applying the various rules (power, product, quotient, chain rule, etc., trig functions), dealing with fractional powers, etc. Tom was very patient and explained everything very well. I feel well prepared for my test. I would definitely recommend him.

Tom was extremely helpful with my graduate level statistics courses! I was struggling with a course that was teaching the theory behind statistics, so it was quite different from my other courses where the material was more applied and straight-forward. Tom was very familiar with the material for the theory courses and was very helpful in answering my questions as well as providing guidance with homework questions I had trouble with. Sometimes, if he felt he didn't explain something as clearly as he wanted too, he followed up with a message with further clarification. In all of Houston, he was the only tutor that was proficient in this area of math and statistics to help me out, and I was very lucky to have found him. I ended up doing quite well in both parts of the course, and it was seriously all because of Tom's help. He's patient, helpful, and very knowledgable!

We did principle component analysis using SAS and JMP. He also taught me how to work with matrices. I haven't had or used math in years. Tom was incredibly patient. He was able to take simplify the concepts for me.

Tom helped me to understand the normal distribution curve and how to calculate standard deviation and z-score. He was excellent.

I'm so grateful to have met Tom through Wyzant. Tom is a great tutor and I've gone back to him repeatedly. I am not exaggerating when I say I am sure I have saved myself 60 hours of tearing my hair out and struggling on my own for every hour I spend with Tom. There's seemingly no question about SAS, statistics or modeling that Tom can't explain. And he is judicious with his time. He gets right to business and helps you learn what you need to know. Highly recommend him to anyone

I enjoyed my lesson with Tom. Overall he's very knowledgeable and knows what he's talking about. I understand statistics way better since his lesson!

Tom is very knowledgeable and really help me understand my questions. I had a test review sheet and we worked out each question with him making sure I understand. He is very observant and recognized my facial expressions of some things I wasn't so sure of. He truly has your best interest at heart.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have both taught and tutored Algebra 1. I have excellent mathematical skills, which comes in handy in teaching any mathematical subject. I am able to understand why a student is having difficulties and work towards a solution. This is especially important in Algebra I, which requires a mastery of all previous math.

I have taught and tutored Algebra 2. I will fill any gaps in your understanding of algebra as we get you to master Algebra 2.

I have taught and tutored Calculus. I scored a 5 on the Calculus BC AP exam and a perfect score on the actuarial exam in Calculus.

I have tutored geometry quite a bit. Keys to success in geometry include understanding the material, having confidence, being logical and careful, and drawing whenever possible. This is why tutoring can be so helpful. I look forward to working with you.

My scores on such tests as the BC Calculus exam (I made a 5), the actuarial exam in Calculus (I made a 10, the highest score), and my graduate degree in Statistics demonstrate my math skills.

I have taught Probability as part of statistics classes. In addition, I have taken advanced probability classes and tutored probability. I find the problems to be fun and hope you do--they tend to require a lot of logical thinking and will prepare you for the World Series of Poker!

I have worked with SAS as a practicing statistician for many years. I have great skill with Base SAS, Sas Stat, the Macro Language, etc. I look forward to hearing from you.

I have taught Statistics at the university level and have tutored students from high school through graduate school in the subject. I have been a practicing Statistician for much of my professional life. I find that students' problems with Statistics tend to be caused by a lack of understanding and confidence in a totally new subject and look forward to helping you with this and ensuring your mastery of the subject.

I have tutored extensively in Trigonometry.
