Tom I have a passion for learning and for helping others to learn! Started teaching undergrad courses in 1991...began tutoring in 1999 and received a tutoring award from the University of Pennsylvania. I like to make hard subjects clear and easy to handle!... Usually it's part "get to know you." But then I ask them what is bothering them the most, and we start there. If we have to back up to review things, no problem; I am there to help. I try to remind students I am not their teacher or parent, and I am not judging them at all.
