About Tom

I just underwent a career change having gone back to school at the University of Bridgeport and
received my Masters in Elementary Education with an additional cross-endorsement to teach Social Studies
in Grades 7-12. I am a certified Teacher with the State of Connecticut.
I believe my best categories as a tutor will be strengthening fundamental elementary skills such as math, reading, writing, language arts and science. I have an appreciation for the fact that various kids learn differently.
I have a good manner with my students and I am a very good motivator.
In addition to the ability to teach the fundamental skills to elementary school students I also would be an effective tutor for High School Social Studies and writing, reading and research skills for students in grades 7-12. SAT and ACT preparation.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

I have an B.A. degree in Political Science from Stonehill College. I am a certified teacher in the state of Connecticut with certification in secondary (HS) social studies. I am a lifelong student of history and current events. I have been a tutor at Naugatuck Valley community College in Danbury CT for the past 4 years.

Baseball

I played baseball at every level through Division III at Stonehill College in North Easton, MA. I also played softball for many years. I am still fit and active at 56 years of age and I have experience as an assistant coach for my son's little league teams for 3 years. In addition I have more than 6 years of youth coaching experience having been head coach of a Challenger soccer team for special needs children/ young adults.

Government & Politics

I have been a writing tutor at Naugatuck Valley Community College for four 4 years. I earned a Masters in Teaching from the University of Bridgeport in 2010. I have teaching certification in Connecticut for secondary (HS) social studies. My undergraduate degree is a B.A. in Political Science from Stonehill College. I enjoy bringing an appreciation of Government and Politics to young people.

Grammar

Grammar is the icing on the cake. Many people attempt to learn English and do but they find the subtleties of grammar hold them back. I have worked as a writing tutor at Naugatuck Valley Community College in Danbury, CT, for the past 4 years. I am experienced at working with many people whose first language was not English. I am familiar with the challenges and I know how to approach the subject piece by piece.

Take heart, I can help.

Study Skills

I have an B.A. degree in Political Science from Stonehill College. I am a certified teacher in the state of Connecticut with certification in secondary (HS) social studies. I am a lifelong student of history and current events. I have been a tutor at Naugatuck Valley community College in Danbury CT for the past 4 years.

World History

I am a lifelong student of history. I loved Social Studies in high school and in college I changed my major to Political Science because of a dynamic professor, Dr. Richard Finnegan. He opened my mind to what was going on in the world. I attempt to follow in his footsteps by helping people understand the importance of learning World History. My qualifications include a
B.S. in Political Science as an undergraduate at Stonehill College in Easton, MA, and a Masters in Teaching from the University of Bridgeport.
