Good listener

Thomas answered all of my questions. He was very knowledgeable! It's clear that he's passionate about art and knows how to teach it to others. He gave me suggestions for homework and a lot of great references!

Lilly , 1 lesson with Thomas

Very inspiring teacher

Romain has already taken 4 lessons with Thomas, and every week he is happy and impatient to start his new lesson. Thomas is a very inspiring teacher for our son, and the interactions he has with him generates a lot of motivation between lessons. Last, the technical skills are taught through real and stimulating examples.

Great, dependable and knowledgeable teacher

My son, age 11, has had 4 art sessions with Tom. From the beginning, Tom has helped N discover and verbalize what subject matter, art techniques, and skills he wants to work on and improve. They work together nicely with Tom giving valuable detailed instruction along the way and teaching N to self-evaluate his own work. In addition, Tom and N work as a team to come up with ideas for pieces to work on for the following lesson. Tom goes above and beyond in motivating N and has made himself available outside of the session to provide feedback. Tom works well with kids, is very knowledgeable, and is a talented teacher.

Excellent

Phenomenal teacher who inspires and appreciates the student's efforts and work. We recommend him highly, especially to students interested in comic art.

Excited!

I already feel more at ease with the learning process after working with Thomas. He is laid back but really knows what he is talking about. Looking forward to honing my abilities under his guidance!

Great tutor

When our lesson started we got on subject right away. He is very good at finding where to start and builds the lesson along in manageable steps that flow well. The homework is a natural progression of the lesson and is a great steppingstone to the next lesson. We have fun covering a subject that we both enjoy.

Fantastic tutor, very motivating and inspiring educator

Thomas is tutoring my 14 year old son in art, (drawing), and my son was wildly inspired after his first session with Thomas. He's been drawing immediately after school each day, and excited about the homework that Thomas gave him. I was very impressed with Thomas and how he encouraged and inspired my son and is supporting his strengths while motivating him to stretch beyond his current capabilities. Thank you Thomas.
