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.

Choose Thomas—-you won’t be sorry

Thomas is pure knowledge and teaching skill. 6 sessions of tutoring in college level chemistry for engineering major all: 1. Specific to my daughter’s needs and learning style 2. Used every minute efficiently—no fluff 3. Calm, supportive, encouraging, while still remaining realistic about the challenges of the course. We feel so lucky to have found Thomas and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or the Wyzant app to anyone. So grateful!!!!

Thomas is great!

I have been working with Thomas for a few weeks now on college physics. Thomas has been great helping me work through homework problems and explaining difficult concepts. He provides a lot of helpful tidbits of information, examples, etc. and will explain things until you understand them and feel comfortable with the material. I would definitely recommend Thomas as a tutor!
