About Tom McWilliams

Tom’s unique methods are based on a proven system invented in 600 b.c. which took over the world and grew approximately all of us. The only reason we don’t all already use them is because of a well-meaning but misguided attempt by John Dewey in the 1930s to restructure our educational systems in preparation for our modern industrial society.

The Progressive plan to make a two-tiered educational system included replacing practical mathematics with theoretical, and it not only made math seem obscure and more difficult than it was, it convinced a lot of people, including generations of teachers, to learn it the wrong way.

Too many students suffer needlessly because of that mistake. Tom can help you transcend all that, and learn the technical subjects the easy way, the correct way, the permanent way.

  • Started fixing electronics in Flint, Michigan, in 1983.
  • Started fixing computers at Michigan State in 1988.
  • Started training people to use and repair them in 1990.
  • Started managing a pawnshop (and largest used Mac store in the US) in 1995.
  • Got certified on Apple, HP, Dell, Compaq, IBM computers, printers, laptops, etc by 1999.
  • Moved to Portland, Oregon in 2003, started tutoring as a side project because the licensing is outrageous here.
  • It turned into a ‘real’ job because I’m effective; I raised my rates faster than inflation for 10 of the last 15 years.
  • Made top 50 on Wyzant in 2013.
  • Now I’m also part owner of a farm in Molalla, Oregon, where Tom’s Technical Tutoring is licensed.
