About this tutor

I believe to be a quality tutor, I personally must have a very strong grasp of the material. Therefore, it is immensely helpful for me to review the material beforehand. This will give me an advantage with budgeting the time we have together and making sure things run efficiently. 

When I was in school, my brother was incredibly helpful to my development as a student. Being a tutor will provide me a similar opportunity to make an impact on other students.

    Thomas is very understanding and tries his best to get his students reach their maximum potential. He follows up with practice problems after each class. I see a good improvement after starting his lessons. I highly recommend him.

    Thomas is an excellent tutor in that he employs a consultative approach when trying to help explain concepts and key lessons. Thomas takes the time to listen to his students and hear about their struggling areas to figure out the best method of practice and improvement. When I was having trouble with one of my Accounting classes at Santa Clara University, Thomas was diligent about checking in with me on a weekly basis in order to make sure I was caught up on my understanding of the course's materials. Along with that, he was quite responsive over the phone or web, answering any questions I had within a period of a few hours. Overall, I would highly recommend Thomas Vickers as a tutor if you or your student is struggling in any area of school that is offered in his services.



FAQs


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a recent college graduate with a degree in finance from Santa Clara University.

In high school, I received 5's on both the AB and BC Calculus AP tests. 

Professionally, I have continued to use math skills in many roles beyond just the high school and college classroom. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

To be successful both the student and the parents must want to improve. Furthermore, the student must be searching for help, not simply the answer to the homework problems. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How they like to be taught? 

What subjects are you good at? Why do you think that is? 

And hopefully, I can combine those answers to clarify math lessons.
