About Tom

As a recent college graduate and current student at a respected science teaching certificate program, I am uniquely qualified to be an excellent tutor. While most familiar with environmental science and biology, I am also able to tutor in most other sciences and maths (excluding pre-cal and beyond).

My college tutoring experience includes tutoring classmates and friends in genetics, chemistry, environmental ethics, and introductory biology. I also mentored three freshmen in my lab, introducing them to my study organism, reading and analyzing scientific journals, and field and lab methods. At Antioch University, I am currently studying how to create inquiry-based lessons for middle and high school, as well as community ecology and earth systems.

In college, I completed statistics and honors calculus with high marks, both of which require a strong understanding of algebra. While those two subjects require constant use to be proficient with, I retain a strong understanding of basic algebra.

I have completed numerous classes in the sciences, such as earth systems science, GIS, ecology of disease vectors, genetics, and evolution, among others. I also actively pursue new knowledge in my free time, and am particularly interested in astronomy, small electronics and programming (though these have taken a backseat to my studies).

If you want to know anything else, such as more detailed academic history or to schedule a lesson, please feel free to contact me!
