About Tom

I am currently an internal medical physician practicing in Boston. In my teaching background, I have taught at the middle (math, special education), high school (math), undergraduate (physics/philosophy) and graduate levels (physics/philosophy/math). As an undergraduate, I served as a writing tutor for both undergraduate and graduate students for three years.

I have a passion for helping students grasp difficult concepts, and am highly data-driven in approaching how to get students to the next level. While I am currently practicing medicine in Boston, I greatly enjoy working with students of all levels.

I majored in physics as an undergraduate at Wesleyan University, and served as a tutor for two years for an introductory physics course. I also taught electricity and magnetism as an Adjunct Professor.

I am a published writer of creative non-fiction, and have taught writing a the collegiate level.

Please feel free to contact me to see if I may be a good fit as a tutor. Thanks!

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.

MCAT

I am a practicing internal medicine physician in Boston, and successfully completed the MCAT prior to receiving acceptance to a top public medical school. I have experience with medical standardized testing, having passed all 3 steps of my USMLE examinations. I have extensive experience tutoring at the undergraduate level in writing and the sciences.
