About Thomas

(9/21/17): I have updated my schedule to more accurately reflect my current tutoring time slots. Locations may affect availability.

I am a chemistry teacher in South Jersey, I specialize in fundamentals of chemistry. I have taught for seven years and have an intense love of teaching and helping students understand complicated subjects. I do not work during the summer, so my schedule becomes much freer after June 20th, but I am always open to scheduling sessions.

I continue to improve my practice in the classroom, but I also like to help students on the side, because I know how difficult physics and chemistry are. I know that videos online can help sometimes, but also you need someone to be able to try your ideas out on and who can give immediate feedback.

I am a professional educator, so I take your time seriously. I always accept constructive feedback on the quality of my lessons because I know that every learner is different.

I majored in chemistry with a minor in physics in college and then received my masters of science in teaching from Rowan University.

If you are struggling with chemistry or need help on certain concepts that are just tough to master, contact me to schedule an appointment. As a teacher, I have many resources and practice examples to help from basic chemistry to advanced topics.

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.

Chemistry

I have a bachelor's degree in chemistry and have been teaching chemistry at the high school level for seven years.

Physical Science

Physical science and physics are tied together in their material along with a deep understanding of chemistry as well as earth sciences. I have credit hours in earth sciences as well as a minor in physics and a major in chemistry.

Physics

I have a minor in physics and use physical principals in the teaching of chemistry. As well, I have continuing experience tutoring students in physics at my school.

Helpful Honors Chemistry Tutor

He was able to help my son quickly catch up on his lab and quiz work. Thomas made scheduling quick and easy. They covered a lot of coursework in an hour. After only a couple sessions I received a call from my son's teacher regarding the progress made. I highly recommend Thomas for chemistry.
