About Thomas


Bio

My name is Tom. I have lived in Knoxville all my life, except 4 years in Cookeville where I attended Tennessee Technological University.

My name is Tom. I have lived in Knoxville all my life, except 4 years in Cookeville where I attended Tennessee Technological University. I studied Electrical Engineering for 2 years before changing to Math Education. I became a teacher because I enjoy helping others. There is no better feeling when I see a student "get it".

I recently retired from Knox County Schools after 30 years 6 months service. I retired because I plan to tutor, travel, and tinker. I miss the students and the instruction. I do not miss many of the unnecessary demands placed on teachers.

My tutoring methods are both "old school" and "current school". I believe in discipline and hard work. A tutor is an instructor who gives private lessons. Therefore, I use current teaching methods --- modeling, I do you do, practice, closure and summary in a private, one on one setting. Mathematics is a universal and exciting language, and how math is used in the real world is motivating for both tutor and student.
