I have tutored hundreds of students in math, science, and engineering over the past 25 years. I worked in the BYU Math Lab to pay my way through college where I earned a Master of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a minor in mathematics. I have even published a book and software package used by several universities in numerical analysis and the C programming language.
I tutor all levels of math, from prealgebra through calculus 3 and beyond. AP Calculus AB/BC, AP Physics, and Pre-AP Precalculus are my specialties. I also do a lot of tutoring for SAT math. My students' best SAT math score is 730 out of 800.
I love teaching students that really want to learn and have set a goal, but are either behind or are not connecting with their teachers. Math can be easy and fun when you understand the key concepts.
My teaching style is to ask my students focused questions that cause them to think, then determine the correct answers for themselves. I then like to show multiple ways to solve the same problem and how to verify the answer as being correct. This is the difference between a 'B' student and an 'A' student. I also believe in teaching how the covered math concepts apply to our everyday lives.
In addition to math and science, I also tutor chess and the C/C++ computer programming language. I tutor all of my students from my Home office in McKinney, TX.

Great Calculus 2 tutor. I highly recommend!!
From the first day, Harold equipped me with tools I could use that have not only helped me with my homework, but have also helped me to understand how to use the formulas that we need for taking the quizzes/tests. This is my second time taking Calculus 2 and I feel more confident after having Harold tutor me in 2 sessions than I have in 2 semesters of taking this class in college. Harold is an excellent tutor, very patient, and really knows how to build a foundation in Calculus that you can work from. I highly recommend him, especially if you are struggling in Calc!Kameron, 3 lessons with Harold
Expert in his field, patient and kind
Harold is the first person to be able to engage my learning disabled son for longer than 15 minutes. Harold is able to reach Peter at his level and challenge him in a way that doesn't frustrate him. Harold and family are very kind and have made us feel welcome.Cindy, 15 lessons with Harold
Knowledgeable and easy-going tutor
Harold helped me with Calculus 1 last semester. He is fun to work with and showed me various methods that helped simplify what I was learning in the lectures. He works at a pace you can keep up with and clarified many concepts that I needed practice with this year. I highly recommend Harold to anyone looking to improve their understanding of their math/physics course. After working with Harold, I noticed a night and day difference in my ability to perform in the class and didn't feel so overwhelmed!Steven, 30 lessons with Harold
Very knowledgeable, communcative, helpful, and a confidence booster
Harold has been a wonderful tutor for my son! He is a junior in high school and was struggling to pass Pre-AP Pre-Cal until we found Harold. Weekly tutoring sessions have raised my son's grade from an "F" to a "B". Harold is also a great AP Physics tutor. Just as my son was improving in Pre-Cal, he began to need help in Physics. Harold came to the rescue and helped get him back on track. It's great that Harold can tutor both subjects! Often my son gets tutoring for both in the same night. Harold helps him talk through each problem and has really boosted his confidence in each class. He looks forward to going to tutoring and always comes home satisfied that he understands the new concepts much better than before tutoring. On WyzAnt, Harold always types a summary of the evening, what they worked on, and how my son is progressing. His help in boosting my sons grades has been well worth the investment in tutoring!Shannon, 29 lessons with Harold
I'm most grateful for Harold's expertise. I'm taking a class that is quite demanding of prior knowledge and skill sets that I was not afforded in prior education.John, 12 lessons with Harold
Quality is very important!
He has a significant amount of real world experience in using Microsoft Project as a Project Manager. He also is an extremely good motivator that immediately helped me on my job the next day at work. If you need help using MS Project get in touch with him.Scott, 1 lesson with Harold
We decided to go with Harold because of his experience! Well worth it! My son needed to pass the TSI math part. After two times and not able to pass we hired Harold and passed yea! Thanks so much!! Would highly recommend! Very accommodating! Gives lots of feedback! Thanks so much!Stephanie, 3 lessons with Harold

Excellent Calculus and Physics Tutor
After one school year of experience working with Harold T., we highly recommend him as a Calculus and Physics tutor. Our daughter's stress level went down and her grades went up. She now has one of the highest grades in her Physics class. Harold T. is excellent at making the Calculus and Physics concepts easier to understand by applying them to real life examples. Communicates well. Energetic. Makes learning fun. Very accommodating and responsive to our schedule requests/changes. We are grateful that we found Harold T. We have tried other tutors but he stands out because not only does he communicate and relate well, but he has a superior knowledge of the subject matter.Tracey, 33 lessons with Harold
Great tutor. Very patient as he went step by step with my daughter on her college level business calculus. You know the tutor is good when your college student says yes I want to go back. She would not have said this if she didn't feel that the tutoring was worth while. We will be back!Michelle, 8 lessons with Harold
