About Thomas

I have been tutoring math on and off for over a decade for North Seattle College. I hold a B.A. with concentration in the natural sciences from The Evergreen State College. I try to instill in the students a sense of accomplishment and success as well as the habits necessary to succeed in the future. I favor neatness and an ability to consider the problems in the abstract as well as the memory skills to retain it as long as possible.

I understand that abstract math can be rather challenging and anxiety provoking for many people, but with attention paid to the right things, it needn't be. I am not a believer in talent, I believe that just about anybody can get good at math and English, it just takes the right approach and enough effort to develop the necessary skill. Each problem done correctly is another step towards mastery.

I am also familiar with the TI series of graphing calculators, especially the TI-83.

I also teach ESL students. I received my TESOL from the Washington Academy of Languages in 2011 and I have been teaching English on and off since 2012. I've taught in various high schools, middle schools and training centers in the People's Republic of China for a total of 16 months. I prefer to focus on communication and using the language to solve problems. Memorization is important, but students need to be able to use what they've memorized properly and enough times to just do it.

I do speak and read Mandarin Chinese as well as German, but I'm still studying.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
