Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Physics)
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.
I just retired from a company that makes ion implanters for the semiconductor industry. I used Math, Science and Engineering every day in my work. My job was writing computer programs that control every aspect of these multi-million dollar implanters. For example, I was working on a computer program to calculate the paths of ions in the implanter. The ions pass through magnetic and electrostatic fields which have filtering and focusing effects. The results of this program help us to predict how the implanter will perform in various situations.
I taught a GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program on Saturday afternoons. Recently I started helping at-risk students with their homework at a local teen center. 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
Excellent tutoring by a very competent C programmer. Lucid, conversational, and friendly style. I can recommend Thomas without any reservation.
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.
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.
