"I'm Thomas! I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Western Michigan University. I am a current tutor for Northwestern Michigan College and Sylvan Learning Center. I believe that tutoring is more than just being an expert on your topic. It goes much deeper than that. Tutoring is about spending the time getting to know your students. It's about being patient, sympathetic, and understanding that each student is different and that what works for some students may not work for others. I try to tell all my students who are struggling or down on themselves that everyone can learn how to do something. You just need to be persistent and determined and realize that with time and experience, you will get better. I also really try to get to know my students by asking about their passions, interests, or hobbies. Having your student comfortable with you is just as important as having them comfortable with the material they are learning. With my background in psychology, I understand just how much anxiety can get in the way when trying to learn. A student who is comfortable with their tutor is a student who has the best chance to succeed.

I am an experienced college tutor with 2 years of tutoring in Psychology, Biology, and Math. I

I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology, and received A's in nearly all of my coursework. But I don't really consider that important. What really makes me qualified to tutor psychology is having a passion for all things psychology. Whether it relates to personality types, mental illness, cognitive assessment, behavioral intervention, etc., I just eat it up. I love learning about how individuals and groups interact with themselves, others, and their environments. I have long considered going back for a masters, but just haven't had the means or time to pursue it. I guess what I'm really getting at is that even if I didn't have a bachelor's degree in psychology, I would still be a decent tutor because of my love of all things relating to the study of psychology" less...
