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.

I have taught and tutored all of these subjects, and as a practicing statistician, I have applied this knowledge in the work world. I am able to grasp new material quite quickly and excel in explaining it.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Statistics

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.

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!

Jonathan, 2 lessons with 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.

Caemen, 3 lessons with Tom

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.

Jason, 1 lesson with Tom

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!

Maxine, 11 lessons with Tom

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

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.

JeAnna, 3 lessons with Tom

Very knowledgable and helpful

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

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

Knows his stuff

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!

Kristin, 1 lesson with Tom

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

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.
