About Thomas

I attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute and graduated with a degree in Physics. I love math, science and engineering. I enjoy helping students explore and appreciate these subjects. I have worked for Princeton University, Hewlett Packard, Xerox and Northrop Grumman.

Recently I have been developing an online web site/app that aids students in classroom studies. This app teaches, reviews and preps the student for exams in Math and Physics. It is currently being tested in Berkeley and San Francisco.

I just began learning about game development. I purchased an Oculus Rift and started developing games using Unity. The coding is in C++ and JavaScript, two of my favorite languages. I hope to share this software and hardware with new students interested in game development.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

C

I've been programming in C for 20 years.

C++

During my 6 years at Varian Associates (acquired by Applied Materials). My daily coding was done in C++. I am very comfortable using C++ on the Windows platform. Normally I use Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or 2010 for a C++ development IDE.

Computer Programming

I have on the job experience as a computer programmer, engineer and scientist. I know many languages and understand the deep concepts of computer programming, object oriented design, structured programming etc. I have programmed in Pascal, APL, BASIC, C, C++, C#, objective C, Java, JavaScript and Pearl. I have worked for various companies such as Hewlett Packard, Xerox, and Northrop Grummand. I have also programmed for the U.S. Navy and Princeton University.

JavaScript

I have been programming in JavaScript for 2 years now. I have created a graphical programming language using JavaScript. I have worked for Princeton University, Hewlett Packard, Xerox and Northrop Grumman. Samples are available upon request.

Excellent and Competent Tutor

Met with Thomas this week and was very pleased with my experience. He is very good at explaining the difficult, hard-to-grasp concepts in JavaScript. He is very personable, easy to talk to, and with him, there is no such thing as a stupid question. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is studying JavaScript or any computer programming language.
