About Thomas

I am Tom but my students call me Mr. R. I have been in an elementary school for five years - four as a Science Specialist and one as a first- and second-grade assistant. I have passed all course work and praxis requirements for my elementary license. I have taken one part of a three part state licensing exam. I expect to have my license by the end of May.

Teaching is a career change for me and this is the most difficult, most rewarding career that I have ever had. K-5 is my specialty but can expand to higher grades. Before my entry into education I was on the editing desk at the Winston-Salem Journal for 18 years. History is a personal interest with a deep focus on the Battle of Gettysburg.

I have a good rapport with students of all ages. Tutoring is a way I can make needed extra income doing something I enjoy.

I have completed the elementary mathematics requirements for the Master's in Teaching degree at Salem College. I have had a year's experience teaching math in first- and second-grades.

I have completed the classroom requirements for the Master's in Teaching degree at Salem College. I also worked on the editing desk at the Winston-Salem Journal for 18 years. Part of my responsibilities included editing and proofreading news stories for the printed paper and Web site.

Education is supposed to be enjoyable. My tutoring is experience based and never involves using drill sheets. Interaction is always upbeat and student driven.

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.

Common Core

I have been working in an elementary setting for five years. Salem and the WSFCS require all course work to be based on Common Core standards. In my first four years I was the Science Specialist at an Elementary School. All instruction was based on the Common Core standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have completed all course work in elementary education in the MAT program at Salem College. The courses are designed to prepare teaching candidates to thrive in an elementary environment. The program requires a semester of student teaching under the supervision of a classroom teacher and a master teacher. I also have five years direct experience managing and teaching elementary students at a Title 1 school.
