Mr. Thomas the Elementary Reading, Writing, Reading, Science and Social Studies Tutor

Methodology

My teaching method is to create opportunities of success with each subject and build from there. Getting to know the personal interest of students help to build connections as well. Flexibility, kindness, cooporation, integrity, and focus makes a teacher and a student stronger.

Background
