I finished 3rd year Ph.D study and have a Master degree and BSc in Computer Science. My GPA is over 85%. My marks on 1st year Calculus, Algebra, and Physics are over 90%. I was a scholarship holder at university, provincial and national levels. I had been a teaching assistant at Queen's for a few years. I have been an independent contractor as a tutor and exam prep instructor for tutoring and exam prep companies. I am also a part-time tutor for the Centre for Students with Disabilities at Guelph University.
I have vast experience of tutoring and tutored over 410 students from Grade 5 to Master level. I am able to help students from basically loss to having confidence in taking and pass mid-term exams in 2 to 4.5 hours tutoring. I am also good at Exam preparation. With around 10 hours of my tutoring, my students can improve their marks from on the verge of failing to achieving 70s up to 90s. They also understand the materials faster, i.e., fewer tutoring hours.
I'll teach my students special math skills so that they can handle their math problems faster and better. I'll also teach them study and exam skills so that they can handle math confidently and independently soon and no longer need tutoring or just need occasional tutoring in the next semester or future.
References (from my students and professors) are available upon request. Transcripts will be presented. I am available basically anytime and can be in exam periods.

Twenty-four of my testimonials:
"I was enrolled in Grade Twelve, University-Level Calculus & Vectors, and was having a lot of trouble understanding vectors, their equations, and how to solve vector problems. Tam helped me immensely- he was patient, flexible for meeting times, and had great teaching strategies. Thanks to Tam, I achieved 90% in the course and ensured my scholarship to (my university)!"
- - Keiran B. (Math G12), Kingston, ON
"Without any hesitation I would highly recommend Tam as a math and computer science tutor. Before meeting with Tam, I had no confidence about my math skills but after having some classes with him I found myself improving a lot. I really liked his time flexibility, experience, dedication and professionalism."
- - R. Moe (Math, Computer Science), Queen's University.
“… I needed help with a statistics course for a graduate program, but it had been over (many) years since my last math class, and I was completely unfamiliar with any of the concepts. … Tam was patient and very informative. He brought perspective and life application to the work. … He was always positive and willing to work with my difficulties. I’m happy to say I received my credit when I thought it was impossible. His advice for test taking was invaluable ...
Tam was prompt and dependable. He was available both in person and online. I was surprised how accessible his online instruction was. I would highly recommend Tam as a math tutor.“ (abbreviated version)
- - Lori W. (Statistics), Belleville, ON. (In person and *On-line)
"We are so glad that we found Tam to help tutor our son in grade 11 physics and math. Our son was really struggling, frustrated and receiving no help from his teacher; Tam was patient and thorough and gave our son the skills and confidence to succeed. Tam makes it very easy to work together online and we are so impressed with how much Tam has inspired our son. We would recommend him to anyone and will continue to use his services - he has become an integral part of our son's education. Thanks Tam!"
- - Adrienne (Physics, Math G11-12 ), Woodstock, ON. (*On-line)
"Thanks to Tam for helping me in Math 121 and Physics 117. He was always available when I needed him, well prepared and not only did raise my confidence in these subjects, he helped me achieve an A in both courses."
- - Kristen (Math 121, PHYS 117), Queen's University.
"My grade 9 daughter was experiencing extreme difficulties and on the verge of failing math. Within a few short weeks not only was Tam able to help my daughter pass but she also received an overall score of 87% on her EQAO exams. I have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for Tam’s abilities as a tutor."
- - Joanna G. (Math G9-12), Kingston, ON.
"After having a bit of a struggle in Grade 9 math, we decided to bring in a tutor to help our daughter with Grade 10 math. Tam was fantastic in helping her not only understand all of her math but enabling her to excel in it. She has one of the highest averages in her class and has built up confidence in herself because of this success. Thank you SO much Tam!"
- - Alyson C. (Math G9-12), Kingston, ON.
"This year my daughter started grade 9 and was really struggling with her math class even with tutoring from her teacher after school. I am so thankful we met Tam! He was very kind, easy to get along with and very knowledgeable. As the tutoring sessions progressed I could see her stress level dropping and her confidence rising as she was finally starting to understand math! With all of Tam’s help, my daughter went from a (failing) at mid term to a passing. It is amazing how quickly Tam was able to help my daughter and turn things around. I have already recommended Tam to several other parents...." (abbreviated version)
- - Tracy H.(Math G9), Kingston, ON.
"I would highly recommend Tam as a math tutor. I hired him to assist my son with grade 11 academic math and within 2 months his marks had risen by 20%. Tam is reliable, well-prepared, patient and well grounded in his subject. He is familiar with and works easily within the Ontario curriculum. Tam related in a comfortable way with my son but kept the sessions focused and productive. He took pride in my son's improvement and was very motivating. We plan to hire Tam again for grade 12 math."
- - Mary (Math G11-12), Kingston, ON.
"Tam is a great tutor. He's very personable, and was easy to work with. If I didn't understand one of the methods he used to teach me something, he would try a different approach until I got it. I've recommended him already to several of my friends, and would continue to recommend him to others as well.”
- - Elena M.(Math G11-12), Kingston, ON.
"Throughout the past month, while Tam has been tutoring me, I have seen my confidence regarding math rise greatly. He's kind, he's knowledgeable and the (On-line) system works perfectly. I have confidence that my mark will continue to rise as I continue meeting with Tam."
- - Austin L. (Math G11-12), Edmonton, AB. ( *On-line )
“Tam is a very professional tutor. He is meticulous in the way he tutors. Tam is very flexible with his schedule. . . . Tam has our son send him a photo of his questions. This allows Tam time to look over the materials and prepare for the tutoring session, this saves time and money for Tams students. In conclusion we feel there is no better Math and Physics tutor than Tam. We highly recommend Tam to anyone who needs help in these subjects. . . . the results are the proof! Please check out Tam, he is simply the best!" (abbreviated version)
- - Keith (Math and Physics G11-12), Kingston, ON.
"Tam is an amazing tutor that understands the needs of the student. He goes the extra mile by thoroughly preparing the material beforehand. Without the basis of grade 12 physics, I was able to excel in first year physics nonetheless with Tam's guidance."
- - Lois L. (Physics), Queen's University.
"Tam tutored me in my business statistics course this summer. I came to him pretty lost and in need of a lot of guidance. With his help I was able to completely turn my grades around and I managed to achieve a B+ overall in the course. He did an excellent job at explaining the math to me in a way that was clear, succinct and relatable. He is very professional and always prepared in advance ... I am so grateful for his help, I absolutely could not have done it without him!" (abbreviated version)
- - Jill B. (Stats), Kingston, ON.
"Our daughter was failing her university level calculus course and decided to take it during the summer with the guidance of a tutor. We found Tam. Tam was wonderful. Tam was very knowledgeable, patient, and kind with our daughter. She was able to pass her calculus course with Tams help and direction. We highly recommend him.
Thank you Tam for guiding our daughter. Without you she would not have been able to do it."
- - Diane M. (Calculus), Kingston, ON.
“Tam was an amazing tutor, he was there to help me whenever I needed it and always accommodated my busy schedule. I would not of gotten the mark I did this year without him.

I would recommend him to anyone having trouble with statistics. I couldn't have survived the course without him!"
- - Shira G. (Stats), Queen's University.
“Tam was an excellent tutor. His knowledge and patience helped me to broaden and deepen my comprehension of statistics and prepare me for a difficult final exam. I would recommend Tam to anyone requiring a tutor for an entire course or just looking to brush up on a single topic.”
- - Nigel T. (Stats), Queen's University.
"Tam was my tutor for my second year statistics class at Queen's University. He helped me a great deal and was only given a few days notice to help me prepare for my midterm. I learned a lot from him and am very thankful for all his hard work. I went into the midterm exam feeling prepared and confident!
Thank you so much for all your assistance, "
- - Colleen A. (Stats), Queen's University.
"Within moments of sitting down at our kitchen table with my 9th grade daughter, Tam had figured out what her algebra problem was and began to address it. It was a wonderful experience watching my daughter's reaction to figuring out what she had been doing wrong and how simple it was to correct. After only a few short sessions she is now enthused about going to class rather than dreading it. Tam certainly did as he said he would - he taught my daughter to capably work through any algebra problem her teacher might throw at her.
I also suggested to Tam to start a small clinic for us algebra rusty parents and know that if he does I will be the first to sign up -
Cheers and Kudos" - - Nick C. (Math G9), Kingston, ON.
