University of Maryland, College Park (Family Science)
Goucher College (Master's)
Hi, my name is Tommy. I was born in Vietnam in 1983 and moved to the U.S. in 1989. I graduated from the University of Maryland - College Park in May 2007 majoring in family science. I have also studied architecture for 2.5 years and elementary education for half a year. I have a lot of teaching experience throughout my life.
Some of my work experience includes: working at the Board of Childcare in Baltimore to help children of dysfunctional families to re-stabilize their lives, teaching Tae Kwon Do for 1 year, and I worked as a life guard for a few years.
I switched careers to teaching and got my TEFL certificate to teach English in 2008. I moved to Indonesia in August 2008 and have taught English and conversation classes for two years at an English franchise called English First (EF) in south Jakarta. While in Indonesia, I also picked up the language and so I'm now fluent in English, Vietnamese, and Indonesian.
Currently, I'm in graduate school in Goucher College. I started this program in Fall of 2011. It's a 40 credit master's degree program getting me the state certifications I need in order to be an elementary school teacher in the state of Maryland. I have passed all of my Praxis tests so far and will need to take one more Praxis test in the summer. I will be graduating in Fall of this year.
If you think I am a fit to tutor your son or daughter/teen in the subject areas I listed, feel free to send me an inquiry and we can set up an appointment based on my availability.

Tommy is my first tutor that I've hired to help my 4th grader in Reading, Math and Science subjects and he is awesome with my son. He was very knowledgeable, professional, patient and my child received a great amount of tutoring in a two hour frame. Communication is excellent... even at the last minute. I will be hiring Mr. Tommy again as a regular tutor.
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.
