About Tom


Bio

I believe that one of the most important things a person can do with their life is to leave the world a better place than they found it. Passing on knowledge is an excellent way of doing this. I've been fortunate enough to have many opportunities to tutor and teach over the past decade.

I believe that one of the most important things a person can do with their life is to leave the world a better place than they found it. Passing on knowledge is an excellent way of doing this. I've been fortunate enough to have many opportunities to tutor and teach over the past decade. It started with a program based out of my school district that matched tutors with students grades K-8 who were struggling academically. The feeling of helping a student go from a C or D to an A or B was absolutely amazing, and I knew from then on that being an educator was the right job for me.
Since then, I've held several other jobs in similar areas. I worked for the Detroit Zoological Society, specializing in taking groups of children on tours of the zoo and educating them about the various animals, ecosystems, and relationships between humanity and nature. I also spent a semester in Germany as an English tutor for students who wanted to improve their language skills. I received an Associate's Degree in Elementary Education, and I am not far off from obtaining my Bachelor's from Oakland University.

My experience teaching English abroad gave me a unique perspective on the subject. Some students sought to perfect their understanding of the English language, while with others I had to completely start from scratch,

One of the reasons I chose to go into elementary education as opposed to secondary was because the concept of teaching a variety of subjects appealed to me much more than focusing on just one or two things.

I've seen many different types of learners over the years. Knowing the individual is a vital step towards helping him or her succeed. Every person has untapped potential; I relish the opportunity to give my students the support and confidence that they need.
