About Thomas

INTRODUCTION
It's nice to meet you! My name is Thomas, I am a college student attending Utah State University. I am 26 years old and my strong suit is math. I will be graduating in December 2017 with my BS in Psychology and a Math Minor. A few words that can describe me include: enthusiastic, professional, organized, self-motivated, fun. I think math should be fun, and that's my goal in every tutoring session, to teach how to have fun with math.

EXPERIENCE
I have multiple years of tutoring experience. I've always had a knack for explaining things in a way that is easy to understand. As a teenager taking beginning algebra classes I excelled in everything math related and I enjoyed helping those around me. Through college taking trigonometry and calculus, my friends and classmates came to me for help. I spent a year in Draper, UT helping high schoolers prepare for math tests and improve their grades. I currently tutor math for Utah Valley University students and the surrounding community. I also cover most parts of Utah and Salt Lake County

QUALIFICATIONS
A Bachelor's degree in Psychology and general studies, a minor degree in Mathematics, 3 years professional math tutoring, Math education extending through calculus 3 differential equations (including work with matrices, algebra, and trigonometry).

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your academic goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Calculus

I just finished a Calculus 3 class last December so everything is still fresh.

Differential Equations

I took the class "Differential Equations" in college 6 months ago. Calculus, including differential equations, has been my favorite subject. When I took the class, I received an A grade. I feel like I have a solid understanding of the topic and I've had various opportunities to help my fellow classmates with their homework. This is one of my favorite topics to tutor.
