For most of Tom's tutoring students, the tutoring follows curriculum and textbooks used at their respective schools. For home schooling or preparation for the SAT or ACT, books and materials are recommended by Tom.
Tom’s math education philosophy is based on the premise that all students can learn and excel at math. Many students have had negative experiences with math and as a result have gaps in their math knowledge that interfere with their ability to excel in current math classes. Individualized math help allows the identification and addressing of specific gaps and needs. Tom sees his job as that of facilitator, helping the student not only to learn math concepts, but also to learn methods for studying and learning new concepts.
Parents frequently report a change in their child’s attitude towards math after working with Tom; some students have even identified math as a “favorite subject” after they experience success and true understanding of math for the first time in their math education.
Students usually do better on tests after several tutoring sessions with Tom. He encourages them to do their homework daily, to pay attention in class, to see their math teachers for extra help, and to study diligently for tests. He does not expect to single-handedly transform a failing student to success. He partners with the students, their parents, and the teachers to make a noticeable difference. He encourages hard work and hard study of the student, and especially to seek understanding of the math concepts he presents. He has found that most students learn to like math after attaining success; they understand that math is more logic than mystery. His ultimate goal is to make a difference in a students’ lives, turning their math liabilities into assets for the remainder of their lives.
