About Thomas

I am available to work with junior high, high school and college students who need a better understanding of math fundamentals, algebra, trigonometry and pre-calculus. I graduated with a B.A. in Business from the California State University in Fresno. I also have an A.A. in Liberal Studies from Fresno City College. After 18 years in a variety of roles in the insurance industry, I have decided to return to school and become a high school math teacher. I have spent the last year working as a substitute teacher, primarily in high school math classes. While in school, I am tutoring students to get a better understanding of what they are struggling with and how I can support students with those issues when I become a classroom teacher. As part of my program to become a math teacher, I have retaken Trigonometry (Fall 2014) and Calculus I (Winter 2015) and will be taking other advanced math classes.

One of my core beliefs about math is that most people understand the basic concepts of subjects like algebra, they just don't realize it. Did you ever come home from school and realize one of your siblings had taken some of your Halloween candy? You did algebra. I help people move that understanding from the concrete to the abstract. Please let me know how I can be of assistance to you.

For the last two weeks, I really struggled with course concepts. After tutoring with Thomas, I was excited to start my homework.
