About Thomas

Hi I'm Tom. I am currently a Chemistry Lab Supervisor at Fairleigh Dickinson University (ACS Member), Committee Chair for the Hudson-Bergen Chemical Society, and Right-to-Know Safety Officer. With these positions comes a lot of teaching in the field and also having to guide younger college students through the ins and outs of the chemistry lab, along with keeping up with my basic chemistry. On top of that, I share my basic knowledge base of chemistry with them as I work alongside them during the lab week.

I have a bachelor's degree from Montclair State University in chemistry. Even though I helped fellow students in chemistry while in college, I got into tutoring post-grad and loved it from the start. I have tutored numerous students ranging from nursing majors in general chemistry to a pre-Vet major in Biochemistry as well. Since joining WyzAnt, I have tutored many ranging from high school students to college students. My tutoring style is meet, go over the lesson from the previous week, and then break down what was taught by using the chapter questions as a guide. One of my strong suits is going over labs and pre-labs. I take my time when it comes to restating and going over the subject matter. I feel that I haven't done my job unless by the time the session is over the student understands that day's lesson. I taught chemistry lab for high school students at Ramapo College, so I have experience dealing with multiple grades and relaying information ranging from textbook subjects to laboratory work as well. Recently I have been tutoring a high school student in my area in chemistry, along with a Seton Hall student in Bio-Chemistry. Over the Summer 2015, I tutored two students from Montclair State in both General Chemistry 1 and 2 to stellar results.

My Availability for Fall 2016:

Weekends: Anytime

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.

Algebra 1

Being a science major (chemistry) in college I had to have a excellent background in math. Algebra has always been a favorite of mine and a subject that I have a strong hold of in relaying the subject and rules to others.

Chemistry

I have studied and graduated from Montclair State University in the field of Chemistry. I have experience in the tutoring field. I tutored 2 nursing students in general chemistry I and II. I also tutored a Pre-Vet student in BioChemistry. Since joining Wyzant, I have tutored students ranging from HS chemistry to college general chemistry. My job keeps me sharp on the subject as I am a Lab Supervisor in the chemistry department of a college.
