As usual my session with Tom exceeded my expectations! I found Tom and started using him as my primary tutor through the Add1Challenge that Benny Lewis of Fluent In 3 Months hosts. The goal of the 90 day challenge is to be able to have a 15 minute conversation with a native speaker by the end of the 90 days! Even as a pure beginner, I was able to meet my goal with Tom's help! I can't thank him enough for all of his patience, encouragement, and language insights!

Just started my second package with Tom and I think he is simply the best conversation tutor on italki PERIOD. With him the lesson just flows, I think because his energy is so relaxed and makes you feel incredibly at ease and open to talking. Not only do I always have a blast talking to him, it’s really the method he uses recording his voice saying the corrected phrases that allows you to really learn the most you can from the session by re-listening as much as you want and reviewing the following days. Thank you for another great lesson Tom, you rock!

I've been having lessons with Tom for 6 months now and it's amazing how much my French has improved using his methods. I can now speak comfortably in French for the whole hour and we always have really interesting conversations. He has really helped me spend my time in the most effective ways possible, not just in French but in the other language I'm learning too.

Tom is an excellent professor! He teaches French in an incredibly efficient way, emphasizing practicality and fluidity. That is exactly what I want - not to sound like a text book. He also has fantastic tools he has fine-tuned to help students truly master the language. Very easy to talk to as well. Highly recommend!
