About Thomas

I want to offer my teaching talents to a broader population. Since 1995, I worked as a college instructor in Northwest Ohio, Southeast Michigan and the online platforms.

During these two decades, I learned what it takes to succeed in one's college education. Moreover, as a parent of two daughters (one already attending a university, while the younger one is completing her high school education), I realize the value of preparedness and academic growth.

Moreover, I learned that one cannot separate teaching from tutoring. Back in 1997, I presented at a Writing Center conference about the importance of seeing tutoring as a viable skill for teachers. Moreover, our schools are often undermanned to provide the skilled tutors needed for your children success.

I like using hypothetical scenarios, listening to the students, prioritizing an agreed up plan of action and pursuing that plan. Often, the issues faced in the social sciences and history deal with understanding how to prioritize the potential information overload these courses offer. Some students may need organizational assistance, others may need different ways of visualizing the material, while others may need more content explanation and etc.

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.

American History

I have over twenty years teaching experience in American History. I have taught American History courses like Contemporary American History Since 1945, American History Before 1865, American History After 1865 and American Foreign Policy. In addition my background in teaching political science and sociology courses enabled me to develop an interdisciplinary approach which benefits many students by giving them a fresh outlet for the subject.

European History

My graduate degree in history focused primarily on European and World History. Specifically, my master's thesis dealt with the Renaissance and Reformation Era. (An analysis of Martin Luther's marriage ideas was the topic.) Moreover, since 1995 I have over nearly 35 courses in European history. at various universities and colleges.

Government & Politics

I have taught nearly 100 sections of Civics and Political Science courses for several schoools. These schools include: Tiffin University, Le Cordon Bleu. Spring Arbor University and Stautzenberger College. Moreover, I designed a State & local Government course. Coupled with my background in history and sociology, I provide students with alternative ways to understand government.

Social Studies

In 1987, I was certified as a Comprehensive Social Studies Teacher (University of Toledo, Grades 7-12). Until 1990, I was employed as a social studies teacher for Toledo Public Schools. I opted to pursue a Master's in history, which was achieved in 1992. I also acquired over 30 graduate hours in Geography and Planning. Since 1995, I have taught courses like Anthropology, Consumer Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, History and Geography for numerous colleges and universities.

Sociology

I have been teaching Introduction to Sociology, Multiculturalism in a Diverse Society, Beliefs, Attitudes and Ideologies since 2004 for Stautzenberger College, Ashford University, Le Cordon Bley and Tiffin University. In addition, I assisted in redesigning an online Sociology course for an institutition.

World History

I have taught various courses in World History at colleges and universities since 1995. Moreover, since I possess over 30 graduate hours in Geography.That education experience not only allowed me to teach Geography courses, but the knowledge allowed me to add greater interdisciplinary focus for this topic. (Specifically courses like the history of Modern Asia and the Geography of the Middle East). In addition, I designed on online World History course based on conceptual historical teaching (history of war, the history of monarchs, history of gender and etc..)
