About Tom

In junior high school I had trouble with English grammar. In high school I had a good grammar teacher, and I excelled in English grammar and composition. I love the subjects. In the mid-1970s I tutored a next door neighbor's son for two years. In 1980 I was certified by the Florida Department of Education in Junior High School English. I let my certification lapse because I went to law school. Upon graduating from law school and passing the bar, I moved to Orlando, Florida. I taught legal writing at Southern College for one quarter, and in the late 1980s I had one student intern from Southern College in my office.

I have been a practicing lawyer for 31 years. I use my English grammar and writing skills on a daily basis. I am frequently asked to proofread other lawyer's briefs, and 80 percent of my own work involves writing.

I have a knowledge of English grammar and composition. I have patience with students.

I have been looking for an opportunity like this for some time. Two teachers were in my office, and they encouraged me to take a look at WyzAnt. I miss teaching and would appreciate the opportunity to help students who have difficulty with grammar and composition.
