All Sra was telling you was to put a hyphen between the two words ~~> penny-pinching
You also need hyphens for this phrase if you want to use it as an adjective ~~> state-of-the-art
You can read about compound words here:
Also, you need a comma after "Toliver" in your thesis statement and a space after the comma after "mansion" -- Also, can you rephrase the thesis so that the word "you" doesn't show up?

Can I put? because of his penny-pinching ways no one would ever know it.
I know I need to change the you to 3rd person. Will this work?

Yes, "no one" would work. So would "no one else" or "others."
You'll also need a comma after "ways" in that sentence.

Yes, that works fine ... just remember to get that comma in there after "ways" --
... because of his penny-pinching ways, no one would ever know it.
