I have earned two degrees from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor's of Arts in Economics and a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Finance. Through my own coursework and my experiences as a tutor, I have gained extensive knowledge in the subjects of algebra, statistics, and calculus.

I have tutored students for over three years. I have tutored students in Ann Arbor and Dearborn, as well as Oakland University. I have tutored a variety of subjects: economics, finance, calculus, pre-calc, statistics, public policy, business strategy, and marketing. I have tutored students at all college levels, including business executives in pursuit of their Master's degree. Many students continue to utilize my services through successive semesters while they complete their program. In addition to tutoring, I provide independent business and strategy consultation/development to local businesses and entrepreneurs.

My tutoring philosophy is to help students find the simplicity behind any problem. I have focused on finding simple and effective ways for students to not only understand the problems at hand, but understand the theories and concepts that provide the structure for any problem. Armed with this knowledge, students find that approaching any problem becomes easier and more intuitive. I believe this ultimately offers students an increased level of self confidence and speed during an exam, resulting in higher grades.

My goal is to enroll into a PhD program in economics, teaching economics and business in a way that actually makes sense and is easy to understand. This is my passion and my students appreciate my commitment and the advantage it gives them during tutoring sessions. I believe everyone has immense potential and given the right circumstances, are able to access this potential and achieve their goals. Everyone learns in different ways and I find it a worthy goal to figure out a way to help someone grow intellectually. I strive to find ways for students to have a greater passion for the subject and find ways to incorporate learning techniques and strategies not only for test time, but throughout life. I see tutoring as a chance to not only help someone learn, but to help them organize their thoughts and behaviors to achieve their goals and deliver lasting results.

Absolute Genius Who Knows How to Teach Well

Thomas is the man. He knows how to handle literally any problem you throw at him. We work on advanced statistics and Econometrics and he has the ability to teach these topics at any level. Other tutors cannot understand the work, while Thomas can crush it. Good luck finding a better tutor than Thomas.

Great Algebra Lesson

Thomas helped me understand certain concepts more clearly. I feel more confident about algebra with 1 lesson under my belt.

Najla, 1 lesson with Thomas

If you want a tutor, select Thomas W.

For fall semester, I registered for classes a bit late and ended up with a demanding economics professor. In this class, half of the people dropped out mid-semester. Without the help of Thomas W. I wouldn't have ended up with an A-. Thomas W is literally a walking encyclopedia for economics and he didn't have to look at my textbook to know what I was talking about. He's also well versed in mathematics and quick to solve abstract problems. If you want to learn a lot and have high marks, select Thomas W. and do not disregard any of his knowledge.

Great Tutor

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Tom each and every week. He was able to help us in multiple business classes, such as finance, managerial economics, and production operations management. Whether explanations were given hypothetically or by real world examples, we were both able to grasp the information quickly. Scheduling was never a problem because he was very flexible, and was able to meet at any time. It was a great learning experience working with Tom! We highly recommend him.

Thomas is excellent tutor. He gives real world examples to illustrate complex concepts. After we met, I gained a much greater understanding of the material for my economics class. I have no doubt, with his patience and teaching prowess, Thomas will continue to help his clients produce positive outcomes in their courses.
