About the lesson

The lessons are primarily given to middle school students. The lesson structure is tailored to specific needs and reflects my philosophy regarding actual study skills. Basic principles of a subject (especially math) need to be in a students 'back pocket'. In other words they must always be ready for use to support immediate problem solving. This supports test taking and improves self confidence.

About Thomas

I have been giving lessons for approximately 4 years involving about a dozen students. Students have achieved an understanding of just how important reading comprehension can be regarding problem solutions. Students actually write down the math as they read the question.
