About Thomas

Hi, my name is Thomas. I hold a BA and an MA in History from San Francisco State University. I have presented my scholarship throughout the country and am currently editing a collection of historical essays for Ohio University Press.

Aside from my scholarship, I have prior experience teaching English as a foreign language to students in Central Asia and East Asia. This range of experience means that I am sensitive to learners from a wide range of backgrounds.

I will do my best to help you succeed. At the end of the day I hope to prove that studying History and writing well can be rigorous and fun!

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.

Social Studies

Given my BA and MA in History I have the requisite subject matter expertise to teach the historical subjects that social studies are based on. Given my experience teaching English in Central and Eastern Asia, I have the ability to teach to students at grades K-12. I am familiar with different learning styles, and I have an appreciation for how people from different national contexts understand the subject matter communicated by social studies.
