No better tutor! — Tom is a real geologist who worked with my son on basic geology at NOVA. It was a harder class than we anticipated. Tom patiently explained the material to my son, who seemed to enjoy the sessions. In the end, my son achieved his objective for the class with Tom's help. He is good natured, patient and really knows his stuff! Thank you, Tom! ...
