About Thomas

Chemistry is a science unlike any other. Some people struggle to survive, while others love it and thrive!

I am among the latter: I love it. I get it. I find it challenging, rewarding and yes, a lot of fun.

I am a Scientist with many years of industrial experience. After graduating from Holy Cross, I worked for a pharmaceutical company for a couple of years and decided to go back to school. I completed my PhD studies at Dartmouth College, spent two years as a Post-Doc at UC Irvine and have held a few positions of increased responsibility in the Biotech and Pharmaceutical industries.

I was a tutor in college and as a grad student and would help out with students struggling with the subject.

I like to make the subject fun by breaking it down to the fundamentals. It's not about memorization; rather, it's about the understanding and the process.

I am available evenings and weekends.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

A fine chemistry professional — My daughter checked out several tutors for organic chemistry and was not impressed until she met this gentleman. He is able to slow her down and have her focus on the issue at hand in order to improve her learning system. So far, as the paying father, I am quite impressed. ...
