About Tom


Bio

I have been teaching English since 1978, first in a tutoring school on the Greek island of Crete, then, for 12 years, at the prestigious Anatolia College, an American-owned prep school in northern Greece, where I also directed the school Drama Club. Students who graduated from there went on to major colleges and universities in the US, including Harvard and UCLA.

Upon returning to America, I became a certified Adult ESL teacher within the LAUSD system, where I have been teaching since...

I have been teaching English since 1978, first in a tutoring school on the Greek island of Crete, then, for 12 years, at the prestigious Anatolia College, an American-owned prep school in northern Greece, where I also directed the school Drama Club. Students who graduated from there went on to major colleges and universities in the US, including Harvard and UCLA.

Upon returning to America, I became a certified Adult ESL teacher within the LAUSD system, where I have been teaching since 1998. I have taught at all levels from Literacy to High Intermediate while also helping students prepare for their GED exams. In addition, I have been giving private lessons in SAT and TOEFL preparations.

I have published eight books, mostly about Greece, including a memoir, "The Summer of My Greek Taverna," which has recently been optioned for the movies. But, as an old saying in the writing business goes, "Never give up your day job!" Besides, I love teaching English, especially grammar.
