  • "Tom is an excellent instructor for the intimidating arena of web analytics. He is great at explaining new concepts and providing a learning environment that is welcoming and encouraging to novices. I know that my understanding of the concept and enjoyment of the class would have been lessened had Tom not been my instructor."
