About Thomas


Bio

Hi there! I'm Tom, and I graduated in 2015 from Siena College with my degree in Physics. I specialized in Acoustics (Sound Physics) and work as a violin maker. I grew up as the eldest of nine home-schooled children and through that I learned that I loved to teach and tutor. I continued that into college and worked as a Teacher's Assistant in Physics of Music and General Physics, where I graded tests and homework, tutored and helped students with class projects. Throughout my four years of...

Hi there! I'm Tom, and I graduated in 2015 from Siena College with my degree in Physics. I specialized in Acoustics (Sound Physics) and work as a violin maker. I grew up as the eldest of nine home-schooled children and through that I learned that I loved to teach and tutor. I continued that into college and worked as a Teacher's Assistant in Physics of Music and General Physics, where I graded tests and homework, tutored and helped students with class projects. Throughout my four years of college (2011-2015) I also did private tutoring in Physics, Math, Test Prep, and English for college students in both group and one-on-one sessions. After graduating college, I tutored privately for high school students in the area in Physics, English and Test Prep, primarily in one-on-one situations, and have continued to do so until presently.

I have always loved learning and being able to discuss a large variety of topics in almost any situation and I wish to pass that love on to others. I've always been interested in science and history and found throughout my years of learning that being able to understand the "why" behind math or science is crucial for understanding and enjoying the topics, and I work to always help students to come to that understanding. The best teachers I ever had challenged me to use my brain but made it fun and interesting rather than boring, and I try to follow some of their methods in tutoring and teaching. My philosophy is that patience, one-on-one explanations, and an enthusiasm for the material will help to bring the love for learning that I have to any student I have the opportunity to work with!

I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Computational Physics and am qualified to tutor math subjects from Elementary Math up to Calculus. I try to show students the reasons behind the mathematical methods used rather than relying strictly on memory or rote learning, though those have a role in math. I have tutored physics at the high school and college level and believe that I am able to impart my knowledge and understanding of the topics of general physics, electronics, and acoustics clearly and simply. I am also able to tutor in English because I taught elementary phonics and writing for 4 years while in high school, and have since tutored college and high school students in English grammar and academic writing. I consistently have tested in the top 5% of English speakers for vocabulary and usage. Finally, I love history! I am fascinated by everything from ancient writings to medieval battles to post-modern politics. I have tutored at the elementary level in history.

Thank you for looking at my profile. Please contact me to learn more or to schedule lessons with me, and I hope to speak to you soon about how learning can be really awesome!
