Knowledgeable and Friendly Math and Statistics Tutor
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 tutoring is the opportunity to work one on one with you and see your happiness when you have successfully learned new material.

Probability and statistics
Tom is patient and easy to work with. He made the statistics easy for me to understand. He walked me through binomial excel, how to get SD, mean and probability. Am getting my second session with Tom and looking forward for it. I would recommend Tom to any student struggling with statistics and probability. Jossy

Competent and very kind
We discussed extensively creating and editing a particular function in R related to a matrix of plots. The exchange was the most important thing of the lesson. Moreover, Tom kindly enough sent me after the lesson was over further tips on how to provide an optimal solution to the question we dealt with. I am planning to contact him again to take more lessons. I recommend him.

Tom is an excellent statistics tutor. He ensured that I knew both the concepts and the formulas. Patient and committed to student's learning. Highly recommended!
Tom was patient as he explained all the steps he took in creating an excel sheet that enables me to do pre-post testing, using repeated measures design. He ensured that project went to completion as we ensured that steps were taken to test for normality for the distribution of difference scores. I highly recommend Tom!

Knowledgeable
Some of the core values of Stats. As well as how to use my excel app on my computer a lot more efficiently. I did not feel rushed by Tom which was another thing that I really appreciated.

Knowledgeable and Patient
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.

Excellent tutor and very helpful
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 is a genius
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
