About Thomas

Education - I grew up and attended university in Germany, graduating in Physics with the equivalent of a Master's degree. (I have been living in Macomb County for well over a decade now.) The path through the broad and fascinating subjects of physics (mechanics, electromagnetism, particle physics, optics, theoretical quantum dynamics, etc.) also provided me with a very strong background in math, including algebra, calculus, differential equations, analysis and vector analysis.

Experience - Although my experience as a tutor is still somewhat limited, I believe that my passion for / knowledge in math and science can help students overcome their obstacles. My daily work in my current career as a software developer has helped me to become very good at "troubleshooting" and identifying the root cause of a problem.

Approach - Every student has his/her own story, his/her own strengths and weaknesses. I will patiently work with the students to identify with which specific steps/concepts they are struggling. In that context, it is important for the student to understand that "It's OK to be wrong" during the tutoring sessions. Getting to the root of the problem(s) will only work if the student is not afraid to open up.

I would be happy to arrange a first get-to-know meeting - free of charge.

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.

German

I was born in Germany and lived there for the first 31 years of my life. I started learning English in 5th grade. I have lived in the U.S. for well over a decade now and I still speak German with my family in Germany as well as with some of my German co-workers here in the U.S.
I am bi-lingual and I can effortlessly switch back and forth between both languages.

Fantastic tutor for physics!

I'm very glad I found Thomas for my college physics class. He was very helpful and patient with me especially since I seemed to be worse at math than physics. With the help of Thomas tutoring me I ended up getting a 3.7 in my physics class. I'm completely ecstatic!
