Tom's Tutoring Service
About this pro
As a teacher, it's my job to enable every student to achieve his or her full potential. Every student is different; some students need a small boost, while others need to build from the ground up. I'm very patient and thorough, and I identify and improve areas of weakness while building relationships and making learning fun. I tutor in a wide range of subject areas, but my specialties are Math, Physics, and Study Skills. Many people underestimate the value of teaching study skills; I see many students who have become discouraged because they work hard but lack time management and organizational skills. With a little bit of guidance, these students can see their hard work finally begin to pay off. Whatever your situation may be, I'm here to help. In my experience as a tutor, I've seen some amazing outcomes. I have experience teaching all levels of math, science, study skills, and standardized testing at the college, high school, middle school, and elementary school levels. I'm a certified instructor at Sylvan Learning Center, where I worked for a year in Boston. I have a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a Mathematics minor from the University of Massachusetts. I graduated from the honors college at UMass with top Latin honors (Summa Cum Laude) and a 3.83 GPA. I'm now attending the University of Utah to get my Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering. My math and science students greatly appreciate that I have a practical understanding of how to apply these concepts to research and design, and they enjoy when I'm able to give real-world examples and applications.
