About Tom

Understanding the importance of preparation and good study habits came to me early in life. I was fortunate to grow up in a great school district, earn advanced degrees at top-shelf colleges and universities, and enter a career in education that’s seen me teaching in high schools, colleges and universities around the world. How I achieved and what an education has done for me is what I try to bestow upon my students so that they can accomplish their goals.

I tutor face to face, online and in confIgurations that are mix of both. Contact me for details or questions. Get started today!

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.

College Counseling

I have advised hundreds of students entering education as their chosen field after completing prerequisite general education requirements. I have also sat on advisement committees whose task it was to oversee the rematriculation of students who had left college for any number of reasons.

Elementary Math

Elementary mathematics, science and technology are my specialty topics in elementary level education. I have worked with young students in these subjects and have been training student teachers in these topics for more than five years. I bring difficult, abstract concepts alive by using hands-on materials, simple everyday examples, and demonstration.

English

I have a B.A. in English, a M.A. in English, and an English grades 7 - 12 teaching license. I've been a student of English all my life and have completed advanced degrees in the areas of literature and teaching the subject, have more than five years of classroom experience at the middle and high school levels and have been a professor of teacher education, training student teachers in the science and art of improving student literacy in English and in all other content areas as well. As a graduate student, I logged over 300 hours as a writing tutor.

ESL/ESOL

I'm a native English speaker who has taught basic, advanced and college prep ESL at schools in the United States, Greece and Japan. I have also tutored dozens of students to prepare for the TOEFL and Oxford exams and successfully helped pupils of all ages improve their ability to communicate in English.

SAT Reading

I've helped many students interested in maximizing their score on the SAT Reading Test. I provide thorough preparation covering all you need to know about the test and work with you to draw up an individualized prep plan that focuses on strengthening key weaknesses.

SAT Writing

I provide thorough preparation covering all you need to know about the test and work with you to draw up a individualized prep plan that focuses on strengthening key weaknesses. I was a tutor at William & Mary for 2 years, a mathematics and social studies textbook editor and writer at McGraw-Hill for 2 years, and a writing tutor at Ohio State University for 6 years.
