Philadelphia-Area Tutor Shares How To Engage Students

This week we’d like to spotlight A+ tutor Tom Spencer. Tom is a software development management consultant, with a bachelor's degree in math from Bucknell University.

Tom works with our ACT and SAT prep students on the math portions of the test. He also tutors our Philadelphia-area students in Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Probability & Statistics, and Trigonometry.

Tom enjoys discovering students' challenges and helping them overcome these challenges. "What I like most about tutoring is having a student go from fear or nervousness to a relaxed attitude about math," Tom says. "The way I have seen kids do that, is to make math relate to how they live their lives."

In his free time, Tom enjoys playing the piano, biking, gardening, and cooking.
