About Thomas

I'm a 28-year-old writer and youth mentor, recently relocated to Asheville! I've also lived in Charlotte, southern California, northeast Georgia, eastern Pennsylvania, as well as on the road for nine months as part of a cross-continent journey! I'm an author who wrote his first book a couple years ago, and I hope to publish my second book of road-memoirs later this year. I've been tutoring math and writing students of all ages for five years now.

Back in high school, I tutored algebra and geometry students as a teacher's aide, passed five AP tests, and graduated as valedictorian with a 4.1 GPA. I started college as a math major but ultimately settled on an English degree because of my passion for writing. In 2009, I graduated from the University of Georgia with cum laude honors.

During an application process for an SAT tutoring company, I scored a 2100 on one of their practice tests, including a perfect score on the math section. I've been trained in all the SAT strategies and have helped numerous students achieve higher scores. I've group-tutored at a middle school and several learning centers, and I've also individually tutored dozens of students at coffee shops across America. Additionally, I've worked with students at several summer camps, interacting with kids of all ages and personality types.

I'm currently employed as a youth mentor for teens in recovery. I've enjoyed all my experiences in every possible youth setting, be it academic, recreational, or therapeutic; next to writing, I see youth involvement as what I was put on this planet to do!

If you're looking for an experienced tutor passionate about student improvement, it'd be my joy to help you!

A big help — Thanks Tom, after only a few tutoring sessions we have seen some great improvement and our son seems to be a lot more confident. Your time with him has definitely made geometry a lot more clear. ...
