About Thomas Franklin

Throughout life I have always had a thirst to learn new things and to increase my understanding of the world around me. I have graduated from both High School and College. Having received a Bachelor degree in Business from Colorado State University, my concentration was in Computer Information Systems.

While at Colorado State, I initially pursued a double major in both Music and Business. I have written and performed many of my own compositions, two of which have been performed publicly by full orchestras. I have a great understanding of technology and, in fact, I have worked for Colorado State University's College of Business in the IT Department for almost 10 years where - among many other things - I manage the Customer Support team for the Masters of Business program.

I believe that every person has a desire to learn, and that the spark of interest, with the right amount of patience, need only be surrounded by the right kindling before it can burst into flame. I sincerely hope that I am able to help kindle the flames of learning carried by those around me.

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.

Business

I received an undergraduate degree in Business Administration (concentrating in Computer Information Systems) from Colorado State University. I have had work experience in the fields of banking, technology, and even child care. I have also run my own businesses in years past.

I continue to work for CSU's College of Business, in a managerial position, where I am making business decisions on a daily basis and have access to some of Colorado's greatest minds in the instruction of future business leaders.

Composition (Music)

I initially pursued a double major in both Music and Business at Colorado State University. I have written and performed many of my own compositions, two of which have been performed publicly by full orchestras.

While studying Music, my concentration was in music composition. During my first year, I completed 18 credits of music courses, 12 of which were specifically for composition. I eventually dropped my music major in order to spend my academic time focusing on business and economics, while continuing my own studies of music composition and instrumentation on my own.

At the time of writing this, I am proficient in the notation of all orchestral instruments, excluding some percussion. As a performer, I am proficient in piano and maintain basic/intermediate skill levels in violin, guitar, drums, and organ.

I believe that music is a creative expression of the artist and should deliver the intended emotion through the diversity of instruments to the listener. Sometimes one must think outside the box in order to find the right sound and mood for a composition. I'm not at all opposed to the creative application of instruments to a composition. As an example, one of my pieces utilizes electric guitars suddenly in the middle of an orchestral theme.
