Hi! My name is Thomas, and I am an undergraduate student at Princeton University. A lover of creativity and problem-solving, I am pursuing a B.S.E. in Electrical and Computer Engineering as well as certificates in Jazz studies and Music Performance. I have tutored many students in topics of math, physics, test prep, college essay writing, and AP classes. Each tutoring session, I aim to make concepts understandable on a fundamental level while maintaining a friendly, low-pressure atmosphere. In my free time, I love to play jazz trombone, perform comedy improv, and explore nature.
