About Thomas

My name is Thomas and I am an electrical engineering student. I currently work as an electrical engineer and as a math tutor. I would be very happy to help you, or your child, improve at math.

I love tutoring and teaching because I am naturally a "people person" and I have natural ability to simplify material for students, to help them see the most important parts of what we're studying. I also love the "a-ha" moments students have, when they realize an important concept, and feel encouraged to keep studying further.

I'm an outstanding tutor because I make students do all the work. I believe that true learning occurs when the student is pushed to explain the concept himself, or to repeat the procedure without the hand of the tutor. I push my students to do their own work. Of course, I appear as a "guide on the side" and can give encouragement and direction to the student when she is struggling.

Before studying engineering, I have worked as a college adjunct instructor in English composition and English as a Second Language. In these jobs, I have helped thousands of students in all aspects of learning language, including helping students prepare for the ACT exam. Additionally, I have also worked as an SAT tutor.

I have taught ESL/ESOL, the ACT, English Composition, and the SAT for over five years. I am of great service to the students I work with.

Please contact me through WyzAnt to set up an appointment with me. We decide the best place to meet; I am also available for online tutoring.

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.

Electrical Engineering

I work as a self-employed electrical engineering consultant in New York City. I have taken classes in circuit analysis, circuit design, digital logic, microelectronics, semiconductors, physics, and calculus. I also have done research in robotics at CUNY City College in the robotics lab of Professor Jizhong Xiao. I have experience solving a wide variety of problems in electrical engineering and would be a great resource to any student looking for electrical engineering on this site.
