About Thomas

I have taught in many different environments, including high school, business and industry.

I am a graduate of Syracuse University, with a Masters Degree in Public Administration with major work in in the Social Sciences. My graduate work includes a C.A.S in Education & Counseling(this is an advanced degree between a Masters and Doctorate, requiring 40+ credit hours of study). I have tutored with Literacy Volunteers.

I have maintained a program of continuing education over my lifetime, enabling me to work with students with a wide range of objectives. I have strong interest in helping students in the area of career planning.

I prefer to work in a relaxed and informal manner, creating the best possible teacher student relationship.

I am open to, and welcome any and all questions and inquiries from prospective students and their families.

I am comfortable with my tutorial students calling me by my first name, Tom.

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.

Bodybuilding

I have been involved in body building since the age of fifteen. I studied under Bob Hoffman, a premier athlete (bodybuilder) and Olympic competitor. I would be pleased to help anyone interested in improving their health and vitality through this potent vehicle.

Business

I have been a businessman since the age of twenty-five. I have run a number of successful and not so successful ventures, learning more from those that were less fruitful. I'm sure I can be very helpful to entrepreneurs in pointing out what not to do, as well as how to improve an existing business or start a new enterprise.

Criminal Justice

I served as a deputy sheriff for four years. I have an associates degree in Criminal Justice. I am presently a member of the The Private Investigators Union. I maintain my studies in this area on an ongoing basis. I often confer with police officers to maintain and upgrade my skills.

Fitness

At the age of fifteen I began studying with Bob Hoffman, an Olympic weightlifter and fitness trainer. I have maintained my studies in fitness and nutrition ever since, and keep myself in top physical condition. I have helped several people, over the years, to promote their personal body building and fitness programs. I am very good at, and enjoy imparting knowledge to those who are in a position to benefit from my education and skills.

Sociology

I hold a master's degree in Liberal Arts with a major in Sociology (1972). I received a master's degree in Public Administration from Syracuse University in 1977, and a C.A.S (44 credit hours) in 1983. I have since maintained intensive studies in related subjects. The bulk of my tutor training has been with literacy volunteers.
