About Thomas


Bio

I hold a B.A. in Chemistry from The University of Washington and have been tutoring for over twenty years. I find many students need the one on one tutoring that they do not always receive in school. Learning comes about from the connection between student and teacher. I teach math, algebra, trigonometry, statistics, SAT & GED preparation, and chemistry. References available, Tom

Statistics

Statistics

Statistics is my passion. Each time I tutor a session I learn something new. There is descriptive statistics and inferential statistics(probability). Essentially statistics deals with the gathering and preparation of data. I have been tutoring stats for five years.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I have been tutoring all levels of math for over fifteen years. While in high school I taught a remedial math class, and while in college I taught three and four year olds in a daycare. To reach kids I use patience, care and humor. I got straight A's in math in high school and college.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring algebra for over fifteen years and have many references. Algebra has been developing for over 1500 years with its roots going back to the Greeks and Persians. It is built upon the more recent development of pre-calculus and calculus and has many applications. It is one of my favorite branches of math to study and teach.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring for over ten years, and hold a BA from The University of Washington. I graduated with a 3.91 grade point average from high school, and I have a passion for teaching. I approach the student with listening, care and patience.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of matter and the transformation of matter. Simply put, it is the behavior of the electron (or more specifically, the behavior of the outer most electrons - as seen in the periodic table of the elements). I hold a B.A. from the University of Washington in chemistry, and have been tutoring for many years. I have many references.
Geometry,

Geometry

The Greek roots of the word geometry are "geo" meaning earth or world and "metry" meaning measure. I have studied geometry since high school and use a compass and straight edge to produce constructions. I try to be patient and caring and to engage the student with listening and question. I got straight A's in high school and college math.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

SAT (scholastic aptitude test) is typically required for admission to four year universities. It consists of three sections, one of which is math. The language arts and essay sections draw mostly from a life time of learning and are less influenced by study. Math on the other hand is apt to respond to study. I work with The Princeton Review 2011 Edition. After preparing with them, two of my students were just admitted to The University of Idaho.

Special Needs

Special Needs

I have been a volunteer at The Evergreen Club for two and a half years working with mentally ill adults. The experience has made me interested in seeing growth in the developmentally disabled, and in working with those with special needs.Also, I worked at Harborview Hospital in Seattle, taught english as a second language to Laotian Refugees, and taught for eight years at Crosswalk-- a school for street kids. Also I worked at a daycare center with three and four year olds.

Sports/Recreation

Chess

Chess

I have been playing chess for 30 years beginning with my father. At first he would consistently win, but as a grew older I would typically win. Ability in chess is a lot like ability in math, the more you play the more your concentration and ability grows. I can only think of two people who could consistently beat me, and both were Ivy League scholars. The reason I want to teach chess is because it opens the door to another way to intellectually reach people (especially for young people).

I am interested in teaching the math section of the TEAS test. I have been tutoring math for over fifteen years, hold a BA from The University of Washington and have been working successfully with WyzAnt for nearly ten years. I received straight A's in calculus, and have had many chemistry and physics classes with nursing applications. I worked at a hospital in orthopedics and at a local nursing home for a total of almost two years. I taught ESL to Laotian refugees, and reading to a Chinese priest. I taught remedial math while in high school and volunteered for eight years at a school for street kids. In high school I had a 3.91 g.p.a., and in college I had a 3.34 g.p.a. I also taught creative writing, and I am comfortable with all The TEAS has to offer.

Patient Teacher

We've been working with Tom for 3 sessions now. He's very patient when teaching my 6th grader math. We're hoping to work with him throughout the summer to help boost her confidence when entering 7th grade.

CHANTE, 20 lessons with Thomas

Excellent tutor for my child

He is working on fractions as well as other math concepts. He has been exceptional helping my child that formerly hated math learn to love it. Because of this we will continue to use this tutor.

Jeb , 12 lessons with Thomas

Knowledgeable and patient

Thomas taught me how to balance equation, percent yield, limiting reagents, and etc. Was very patient and did a great job at explaining things in a simpler way.

Thomas has been a great help for my grandson! He has a way of explaining things that fit with the student. My grandson says he is "awesome" He is also currently holding a 101 percent in his math class!!! I am so thankful we met and hired Thomas, you will not go wrong with him.

Lynda, 33 lessons with Thomas

Awesome Tutor!

I studied for the math section of the GRE with Tom. He is incredibly patient and was easy to work with, which was important for me since math is not my forte. He provided me with many valuable techniques to approaching math problems as they appear on the GRE. I would highly recommend Tom as a tutor for GRE math prep.
