About Thomas

I've always had an itch to help others understand the intricacies of science, math, and engineering in the academic world. While at this point in time, I do not have any wish to pursue a teaching certificate, I would like to do what I can to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) in the minds of those that are willing to try harder in those subjects.

My experience includes tutoring student athletes at my alma mater, University of Utah, where I graduated with a 3.38 GPA and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (as well as minors in Naval Science and Physics). During this time, I was a personal math tutor to two athletes and a physics tutor to one, as well as having open office hours for those with general math or science questions. As I only discovered this my senior year at the University, I only taught for my final semester; however, all of my students did very well in their classes and finals under my tutelage.

I have experience through Calculus III, partial and ordinary differential equations, basic computer science programming, dynamics/statics, mechatronics, thermodynamics, robotics, nuclear and particle physics, optical physics, and quantum physics. If you have a question as to whether I am able to tutor it, please send me a message and I will get back to you within a day.

I can provide supplemental teaching in most math, engineering, and science topics. I am also able to tutor multiple students at the same time, if scheduled beforehand, for a $10/hr increase per extra student. Homework may be assigned based on the student's knowledge level and if I believe the student needs more practice in the subject.

I am available most evenings after 3 pm and on the weekends and can travel to students. My base rate is $35/hour, and I only do in-person lessons as I feel that is the best way to assess how well the student is learning. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule an appointment!

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.

Mechanical Engineering

I have tutored some mechanical engineering as well as assisted one of the assistant professors at the University of Utah NROTC when teaching thermodynamics during the fall of 2011 and spring of 2012 (after graduation), respectfully. I graduated with a 3.38 GPA with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, and will submit my official transcript if requested. I do not feel I am qualified to teach some of the higher level mechanical engineering classes that I did not do well in school in, but for all others (including statics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, basic computer programming, basic material science, and many more) I feel I am fully qualified and able to tutor.

Thomas was very knowledgeable and broke down the content so my son was able to not only comprehend but apply the knowledge he obtained in Trig and get better grades
