University of Michigan (Economics Finance)
I have earned two degrees from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor's of Arts in Economics and a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Finance. Through my own coursework and my experiences as a tutor, I have gained extensive knowledge in the subjects of algebra, statistics, and calculus.
I have tutored students for over three years. I have tutored students in Ann Arbor and Dearborn, as well as Oakland University. I have tutored a variety of subjects: economics, finance, calculus, pre-calc, statistics, public policy, business strategy, and marketing. I have tutored students at all college levels, including business executives in pursuit of their Master's degree. Many students continue to utilize my services through successive semesters while they complete their program. In addition to tutoring, I provide independent business and strategy consultation/development to local businesses and entrepreneurs.
My tutoring philosophy is to help students find the simplicity behind any problem. I have focused on finding simple and effective ways for students to not only understand the problems at hand, but understand the theories and concepts that provide the structure for any problem. Armed with this knowledge, students find that approaching any problem becomes easier and more intuitive. I believe this ultimately offers students an increased level of self confidence and speed during an exam, resulting in higher grades.
My goal is to enroll into a PhD program in economics, teaching economics and business in a way that actually makes sense and is easy to understand. This is my passion and my students appreciate my commitment and the advantage it gives them during tutoring sessions. I believe everyone has immense potential and given the right circumstances, are able to access this potential and achieve their goals. Everyone learns in different ways and I find it a worthy goal to figure out a way to help someone grow intellectually. I strive to find ways for students to have a greater passion for the subject and find ways to incorporate learning techniques and strategies not only for test time, but throughout life. I see tutoring as a chance to not only help someone learn, but to help them organize their thoughts and behaviors to achieve their goals and deliver lasting results.

I'm very impressed by Tom's knowledge as he did not have to refer to my ECON's book at all!!!! Tom knew all about the Marginal cost, maximizing profit, average cost, revenue etc. that I was struggling with and he broke these concepts down for my better understanding. I'm very satisfied with my experience and looking forward to our next session. Thank you Tom!
For fall semester, I registered for classes a bit late and ended up with a demanding economics professor. In this class, half of the people dropped out mid-semester. Without the help of Thomas W. I wouldn't have ended up with an A-. Thomas W is literally a walking encyclopedia for economics and he didn't have to look at my textbook to know what I was talking about. He's also well versed in mathematics and quick to solve abstract problems.
If you want to learn a lot and have high marks, select Thomas W. and do not disregard any of his knowledge.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Tom each and every week. He was able to help us in multiple business classes, such as finance, managerial economics, and production operations management. Whether explanations were given hypothetically or by real world examples, we were both able to grasp the information quickly. Scheduling was never a problem because he was very flexible, and was able to meet at any time. It was a great learning experience working with Tom! We highly recommend him.
Tom is an excellent tutor! I needed help with calculus and he was very knowledgeable about the subject. He was very patient with me and really wanted to make sure I understood the material. I would highly recommend Thomas to anyone who needs extra help!
Tom was on time, very patient, and knowledgeable about the subject matter. He wanted to make sure that I understood the material that we covered. I look forward to working with Tom again.
Thomas was a great tutor! He helped me with a finance assignment that I was having trouble with. He helped me with every problem and made sure I understood the material. Very helpful! Definitely recommend him!
Tom is an excellent tutor, he makes very difficult subjects like Applied Statistics in Business & Economics seem elementary. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Thomas is excellent tutor. He gives real world examples to illustrate complex concepts. After we met, I gained a much greater understanding of the material for my economics class. I have no doubt, with his patience and teaching prowess, Thomas will continue to help his clients produce positive outcomes in their courses.
I was in a time crunch with studying for my Economics final, and I thought there was no way I would pass this exam. After emailing a few tutors here on WyzAnt, Thomas was the first one to get back with me. By looking at his credentials I knew getting help from him was just what I needed. With two, two hour study sessions with him, I felt prepared for my final. He took the time to break down everything I had questions on and put it into simpler terms. He taught me that the content wasn't as hard as it seemed and gave me tips on how to make sense of the questions while I was taking my test. I'm confident that he would use the same technique with any other subject. I did end up getting an A on my exam, I highly recommend him!
Thomas does a great job of listening and providing real life examples that coincide with your work. He helped me through my difficulties and made things more clear. He takes his time and wants you to understand the material. I highly recommend Thomas to anyone having difficulties with statistics or any subject that Thomas can help with. 5 star rating.
My name is Marvin and I live in Macomb. As a grad student in an online Managerial Finance class, I had no hope on grasping the concepts. In meeting with my tutor Mr. Thomas I now have hope and was able to grasp the concepts through his tutoring style. Mr. Thomas is very knowledgeable in this field and is very passionate about helping the student learn. He was very professional and at the same time compassionate. I would recommend him to anyone out there that needs a tutor in business finance. I appreciate him taking the time out to be there for students. I will continue to see Mr. Thomas for the next several weeks and give him a 5 star rating.
I am new to the website and at first emailed another tutor to help me in statistics. I received Thomas's email even before I received one back from the other tutor. He is very fast at responding and was available right away. He was very helpful and even taught me an easier way to get an answer. He was very patient with me and I would highly recommend Thomas to anyone who wants help!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
