Mr. Thomas graduated from University at Buffalo with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics - Cum Laude. He then went on to receive his Master’s degree in Mathematics Education from the University of Arizona.
As a BASIS Independent Silicon Valley Mathematics Subject Expert Teacher, his goal is “to instill a passion for learning mathematics through a fun and exciting classroom where kids enjoy themselves each day while learning difficult concepts.”
Prior to joining BASIS Independent, Mr. Thomas was a teacher at BASIS Oro Valley for six years.
“My teaching philosophy is to teach kids through fun and positivity,” he says, “I believe that when students believe in themselves they can realize their greatest successes.”
Mr. Thomas enjoys watching, playing, and coaching football. He is a huge Arizona Cardinals (sorry 49ers fans) and Bills fan. “I also enjoy taking road trips, and I can’t wait to see more of the Bay Area.”
