About Thomas

I am a creative and energetic teacher and tutor who loves to work with people of all ages. My specialty is in literature, reading and writing, but I also have a very good handle on music. I have been playing guitar since I was 10 years old and have much professional experience as both a player and a teacher of music. I also have written many songs over the years and currently play at some coffeehouses and restaurants as a solo performer.

I believe learning is very important, but that it can also be enjoyable and even fun. I try to assess what my students' interests and abilities are, as well as their strengths and weaknesses. I have a good sense of humor, but am able to use it to motivate students and make them more at ease. Education and learning are habits which can lifelong friends. My goal is to teach, but also to make a difference in the lives of my students.
