About Tom

I have a B.S. In Plant Sciences from Delaware Valley College. I was in an academic honor society for horticulture. Part of the science curriculum included biology, biochemistry, genetics and botany.

Currently, I work as a Substitute Teacher for the elementary grades as well as high school in Berks County. I'm also working with learning support. One of my long term goals is to obtain a teaching certificate and graduate degree from Kutztown University so that I may teach sciences in the secondary education level. I have passed the Praxis in biology.

Biology, Botany Ecology Physical Sciences and Plant Sciences

I have experience through two years of Substituting working with the special needs students. My success in academics is a product of determination, problem solving and hard work. I believe that learning is achieved through many different avenues. Each student has their own abilities and challenges. Bridging the gap through tutoring is a great way to learn and succeed.

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.

Botany

My B.S. degree is in Ornamental Horticulture and Environmental Design. I have also interned at three major botanical gardens. Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania, Longwood Gardens and Arnold Arboretum associated with Harvard University.
