About Thomas

I have been a teacher for over thirty years in History, English, and Digital Arts. I am passionate about inquiry, curiosity and learning, which I know do not always match school requirements. Learning is complex and has many moving parts that need to be addressed simultaneously: learning styles, cultural and social background, prior education, hopes and fears. Putting all of these together to become a successful life long learner is my goal in all of my relationships with students.

My educational background is very mixed. I was an engineering major who ended up studying philosophy for six years. I've taught history, English and digital arts. With all of that experience I have seen an enormous amount of written and oral communication, and have worked with great diversity of students to help them improve their grammar. Philosophy, in particular, pays close attention to the meaning of words and communicating that meaning clearly and concisely. Unfortunately, I never worked with Marco Rubio, so was no help to him when he made a rookie grammatical error by stated that we need more welders and less philosophers.

I am eager to learn of your passions, how you approach learning, and help you develop the skills needed to become an exceptional learner. Please contact me at your convenience.
