About Thomas

Schoolwork was always one of my top priorities growing up. I enjoyed the challenge of taking on new subjects and passing exams that tested my work ethic and knowledge. So whenever a friend or classmate came to me for help, I was always willing to share my knowledge, opinions, and study habits as best I could to help them achieve.

I don't believe there is a secret formula to success in school but I have seen how much having a tutor can help a student. Personally, I used to receive extra help for math during lunch in high school. In college, athletes in season needed my help when they were struggling to balance sports and school. Now I have the opportunity to continue helping others and hope to get the chance to do so!

My goal is to make sure that the student leaves feeling that they have progressed each and every lesson. The rate of progression varies among students so I make an effort to keep a pace that is challenging while tailored to each individuals learning needs and objectives. Of course, this applies to schoolwork and swimming which I also teach as well!

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from college with a 3.96 GPA in my major of Economics and 3.75 overall GPA. I am a member of International Economics Honor Society - Omicron Delta Epsilon as well as the National Political Science Honor Society - Pi Sigma Alpha, as I also minored in Political Science. My Spanish abilities, while not perfect, are far from beginner. I studied Spanish throughout middle school and high school, and into college. Most recently I spent 3 months in Spain where I immersed myself in the language to improve my skills.

When it comes to swimming, I competed competitively for 15 years from the age of 7 until my last semester of college. I have coached summer swimming at a local country club for kids and young adults along with private swim lessons while in college.

Please feel free to contact me to schedule a session or discuss session packages. I look forward to hearing from you!
