About Thomas


Bio

I am a retired Electrical Engineer with BSEE and AAS degrees. I graduated from DeVry Technical Institute and after working in the Aerospace Industry for a time attended Marquette University for my BSEE. Math was my favorite subject and I obtained straight A's throughout my school years. I am beginning my tutoring with Algebra I&II, but will eventually tutor through Calculus.

I am a retired Electrical Engineer with BSEE and AAS degrees. I graduated from DeVry Technical Institute and after working in the Aerospace Industry for a time attended Marquette University for my BSEE. Math was my favorite subject and I obtained straight A's throughout my school years. I am beginning my tutoring with Algebra I&II, but will eventually tutor through Calculus.

I have had informal tutoring experience in Maryland helping a child of a friend of mine. Here in Arizona I tutored through the Scottsdale Senior Center for 5 years. My method is to not only teach HOW to do the math, but the WHY behind it. The better a student understands why he or she is doing something the easier it will be.
