Energy and Enthusiasm Pay Off
Dr. Thomas Tudor has a famous reputation on campus for his teaching, according to one of his students from Taiwan: â€śWhile I know he is helpful to all of his students, it is his support of international students that doesnâ€™t come from any other professor. If you need help with a bank account, phone, car, apartment, schedule, course, class preparation, class materials, study skillsâ€¦.then he is there for you.â€ť
One of Dr. Tudorâ€™s colleagues describes his dedication: â€śThere is no one I know that puts so much effort into teaching. His work ethic, subject knowledge, high student expectations, academic rigor, and warmth make him incomparable to most faculty members.â€ťThe management professor receives high teaching evaluations, often the highest in a department of 21 faculty members. In eight years, he has developed and taught nine different classroom courses and six fully online, taking a multi-dimensional approach that complements the many learning styles of students.
â€śI feel I have learned so much by your techniques,â€ť said one of his students. â€śThank you for your time, energy, and enthusiasm during the courseâ€¦your teaching methods are extremely absorbable!â€ť
Dr. Tudor earned a Ph.D. in 1997 and an MBA in 1992 from Virginia Commonwealth University and a B.S. degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1988.
