About Thomas

In four years, I completed all requirements for two degrees: one in Biology, and another in German at Allegheny College in 2007. I took numerous introductory Biology courses, which covered all the basics, as well as specified courses in Genetics and Evolution. I also worked for a time at a research hospital, in the microbiology department, as well as in a DNA facility. I would consider these three fields to be my specialties within Biology.

Additionally, I studied German for 5 years in high school, and then continued studying it for 4 years in college. This included a semester abroad, at the University of Tuebingen, in Tuebingen, Germany. While there, I took several classes with other German students (as opposed to classes designed for American students).

I also learned a great deal about other subjects, including Chemistry, all levels of Math up to Calculus I (I achieved a 760/800 on my Math GRE). I am also an avid reader, who would love to help a child learn how to be able to read better, and to expand their vocabulary.

I have a Master's Degree in Education from Drexel University, and am a full time high school Biology and Chemistry teacher.

My son has learned a lot from Thomas in a short period of time. He gives it his all and is intuned to my son's weak areas. He intuitively knows when to stop and give him extra attention even if my son acts like he knows what is going on.
