About Thomas

Hello,

My name is TJ and I am a physics in mathematics tutor living in Towson, MD. I graduate from Towson University with a Bachelor of Science in Physics in Fall 2014 and have since been enrolled as a Master's student in Applied Physics. I currently have a 4.0 GPA in the graduate program.

I started tutoring pre-calculus and statistics during my junior year of high school. Since then, tutoring has been my favorite source of income. At Towson, I worked in the Academic Achievement Center's Science Tutoring Center for as many as 8 hours a week for six semesters. Through the AAC, I received certification from the College Reading and Learning Association. I have also worked as an in-class Learning Assistant for Towson's introductory level physics courses, performing demonstrations and acting as a personal tutor for the class.

In Summer 2015, I received the opportunity to work with talented high school students in Lancaster, PA as part of Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth as a Teaching Assistant in Special Relativity.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is a part of my everyday life. I do my best to help students bridge the gap in their mathematical understanding and have had a lot of success.

Algebra 2

While working as an instructor for a physics laboratory, I frequently work with students who struggle with the basic concepts of algebra. Without algebra, a general physics student is not suited to pass the course.

Calculus

Calculus is something I use every day in problem solving. I enjoy higher-level mathematics and am passionate about helping those who struggle with math to enjoy it the same way I do. I have worked with calculus students since I took calculus myself five years ago and feel very comfortable teaching the material.

Differential Equations

Differential Equations was the first mathematics course I completed in college. The course was challenging, but very useful for my studies in physics. I still have copies of all of my original notes from the course and reference them often.

I use differential equations frequently in my research and coursework and have worked with classmates and students on solving challenging differential equations for years. There is a formulaic way to solve most differential equations that all students hoping to conquer the course should come to understand, and I really feel I can help them accomplish this.

Physics

While receiving a BS in physics at University, I received many opportunities to teach and tutor underclassmen physics courses. I have worked as a learning assistant for General Physics I & II, both calculus and non-calculus based. I also worked as the main physics tutor in the Academic Achievement Center for six semesters.

Precalculus

I have helped students with Precalculus since 11th grade. Precalculus is really just a culmination of algebra and trigonometry that can overwhelm a student who is not comfortable with math in general, and I feel I am more than suited to help any student with the topics involved.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is one of the most useful mathematical topics in physics; most physicists and physics majors think of it as second nature. While some struggle to highlight the key topics and importance of trig, physics is actually a very useful tool for explaining the concepts that is not taken advantage of enough in math courses.
