About Dr. Thomas

I had the great privilege of tutoring students in Philosophy, Religious Studies and Western Thought during my time as a DPhil student at the University of Oxford. I saw many develop from somewhat intimidated students, new to the language and content of the field, to competent and confident scholars, many of whom have gone on to graduate and post-graduate programs in the field. My joy has been watching students succeed as the delight of the subject matter takes over their initial fears and struggles. Seeing my students thrive academically is my passion and commitment. My methods vary based on the subject matter being dealt with. On the whole, I focus on careful and attentive reading, analysis, argument recognition (and development), critical thinking skills, and written and verbal argument. Most importantly, I structure my approach around the distinct needs and gifts of each student. Each of us learn differently. And it has been a special practice of mine to pick up on that difference and use it to build a method around that distinctiveness. In terms of tutoring subject, I teach and tutor in the areas of Western Thought (general Western Civilization and History, Western Philosophical and Religious Thought, Writing, English Grammar, Essay development, Test Preparation SAT and GRE).
