“**Really Patient Tutor with Skills!**”

I hold a B.A. in Chemistry from The University of Washington and have been tutoring for over twenty years. I find many students need the one on one tutoring that they do not always receive in school. Learning comes about from the connection between student and teacher. I teach math, algebra, trigonometry, statistics, SAT & GED preparation, and

*I am tutoring two students at once for Sri (Ani and Adi) so I am billing them for $20.00 per hour.*

Thomas -- thanks for your patience with me on Statistics . . .you have really helped me take steps towards greater understanding. I am getting more and more confident in my class because of your help! Thanks!

He is working on fractions as well as other math concepts. He has been exceptional helping my child that formerly hated math learn to love it. Because of this we will continue to use this tutor.

Thomas taught me how to balance equation, percent yield, limiting reagents, and etc. Was very patient and did a great job at explaining things in a simpler way.

Thomas is helping my son with Math homework. I have been very pleased with how my son has been engaged and eager to learn his math with Tom's tutoring. I'm a very happy camper.

My son said that he was a great tutor. He knows chemistry, He was very patient and organized. He is reliable and communicates well.

Very understanding, accommodating, reassuring and approachable. He has been a great asset to our son and his academic success.

Thomas is very helpful with Algebra and factoring..."All the types of Math" we have worked on. He is kind and patient.

Thomas has been a great help for my grandson! He has a way of explaining things that fit with the student. My grandson says he is "awesome" He is also currently holding a 101 percent in his math class!!! I am so thankful we met and hired Thomas, you will not go wrong with him.

I studied for the math section of the GRE with Tom. He is incredibly patient and was easy to work with, which was important for me since math is not my forte. He provided me with many valuable techniques to approaching math problems as they appear on the GRE. I would highly recommend Tom as a tutor for GRE math prep.

Thomas has worked out so well. He never fails in reliability, patience and a great way of explaining math. My nephew continues to make progress and we owe it to Thomas!

Thank you Thomas for helping my son with his chemistry this year. We appreciate your approach to chemistry and my son has gained much more understanding from his sessions with you. We also appreciate your flexibility during baseball season. You have been dependable...we are thankful that our son has had you for his tutor. We have two more children who will soon be in high school...be ready for our phone call. Thank you again!

I am absolutely thrilled to have found this tutor. I was able to do my homework after meeting with him in 1 hour, whereas it took me hours before I meet with him, and I was still lost. Thank you Thomas, and I will see you soon!

My grandson met with Tom for 5 days and around 2 hours per day for Algebra. Tom went through his school book and brought him up to where he is when he goes back after Christmas break. Two hours per day for a 15 year old is hard and Tom handled it very well. I hope Algebra will be easier for him once he is back to school. We will follow up with Tom after school starts.

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.

The ACT is a college preparation test taught mainly in the Midwest. It is said to be easier than the SAT, but do not let that fool you- -it is easier for everyone, so it this sense it is standardized. It is built on thought problems-- algebra, geometry, ratios, and statistics. To prepare I use The Real ACT Prep Guide.

I hold a BA from The University of Washington in Chemistry and have been tutoring for over ten years. Success on the test is built around the interpretation of real world problems in paragraph and numeric form. I can help you learn to read carefully so you can answer questions

I have been tutoring algebra for over fifteen years and have many references. Algebra has been developing for over 1500 years with its roots going back to the Greeks and Persians. It is built upon the more recent development of pre-calculus and calculus and has many applications. It is one of my favorite branches of math to study and teach.

I have been tutoring for over ten years, and hold a BA from The University of Washington. I graduated with a 3.91 grade point average from high school, and I have a passion for teaching. I approach the student with listening, care and patience.

Chemistry is the study of matter and the transformation of matter. Simply put, it is the behavior of the electron (or more specifically, the behavior of the outer most electrons - as seen in the periodic table of the elements). I hold a B.A. from the University of Washington in chemistry, and have been tutoring for many years. I have many references.

I have been playing chess for 30 years beginning with my father. At first he would consistently win, but as a grew older I would typically win. Ability in chess is a lot like ability in math, the more you play the more your concentration and ability grows. I can only think of two people who could consistently beat me, and both were Ivy League scholars. The reason I want to teach chess is because it opens the door to another way to intellectually reach people (especially for young people).

I have been tutoring all levels of math for over fifteen years. While in high school I taught a remedial math class, and while in college I taught three and four year olds in a daycare. To reach kids I use patience, care and humor. I got straight A's in math in high school and college.

The Greek roots of the word geometry are "geo" meaning earth or world and "metry" meaning measure. I have studied geometry since high school and use a compass and straight edge to produce constructions. I try to be patient and caring and to engage the student with listening and question. I got straight A's in high school and college math.

I hold a B.A. from The University of Washington in chemistry and have studied and taught logic. I am versed in statements, negations, quantified statements, compound statements, connectives, truth tables for negations, conjunction, disjunction, truth tables for the conditional and biconditional, DeMorgan's Laws and Euler Diagrams. Currently, I am tutoring a blind student in logic.

I hold a B.A. from The University of Washington in chemistry, thereby completing general chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry. I work with Dr. Reid who was working on the elucidation of protein synthesis. I have been successfully tutoring students toward higher academic achievement for over twenty years including students pursuing careers in nursing, medicine and pharmacology, which are fields requiring knowledge of organic chemistry.

SAT (scholastic aptitude test) is typically required for admission to four year universities. It consists of three sections, one of which is math. The language arts and essay sections draw mostly from a life time of learning and are less influenced by study. Math on the other hand is apt to respond to study. I work with The Princeton Review 2011 Edition. After preparing with them, two of my students were just admitted to The University of Idaho.

I have been a volunteer at The Evergreen Club for two and a half years working with mentally ill adults. The experience has made me interested in seeing growth in the developmentally disabled, and in working with those with special needs.Also, I worked at Harborview Hospital in Seattle, taught english as a second language to Laotian Refugees, and taught for eight years at Crosswalk-- a school for street kids. Also I worked at a daycare center with three and four year olds.

Statistics is my passion. Each time I tutor a session I learn something new. There is descriptive statistics and inferential statistics(probability). Essentially statistics deals with the gathering and preparation of data. I have been tutoring stats for five years.

I am interested in teaching the math section of the TEAS test. I have been tutoring math for over fifteen years, hold a BA from The University of Washington and have been working successfully with WyzAnt for nearly ten years. I received straight A's in calculus, and have had many chemistry and physics classes with nursing applications. I worked at a hospital in orthopedics and at a local nursing home for a total of almost two years. I taught ESL to Laotian refugees, and reading to a Chinese priest. I taught remedial math while in high school and volunteered for eight years at a school for street kids. In high school I had a 3.91 g.p.a., and in college I had a 3.34 g.p.a. I also taught creative writing, and I am comfortable with all The TEAS has to offer.

The Greek roots of the word trigonometry are tri (meaning three) and gon (meaning angles)and metry(meaning measure). Thus trigonometry is the study of triangles. Theorems include the sum of the interior angles of a triangle, similar triangles, trigonometric functions and identites. I received A's in high school math.
