About Thomas

I have recently retired. I have worked as a statistician for 26 years as well as taught college for 6 years and high school for 2 years. The high school teacher days were for a woman that wanted a 2 year maternity leave and wanted to try it before graduate school. The College teaching days were in Wyoming near Yellowstone park (I even spent a summer as the manager of college courses for students working in the park that wished to take courses).

You might wonder why I left teaching and will be honest...money. I met my future wife and we wanted to have kids and I decided I needed to ramp up my earnings. I loved working in industry but always missed teaching. Now that I am retired, I don't want to become a full time teacher, but would love to experience what I missed and tutoring seems a great way to do this. Plus kids are grown and out of school so they don't seem to want me to tutor them in math anymore (I don't understand this but their choice).

Even though I was a 2-year temporary I was runner up for South Dakota Beginning Teacher of the Year. I am still in contact with several students from college teaching even though they are in their 40's now. The main characteristics I have been told through evaluations (including industry) is enthusiasm. Math is great. Hopefully that rubs off.

Not all tutors will mesh with their students. That is perfectly fine but you won't know until you call, so call to see if I can be a positive influence on your math whether you love it or hate it :)
