About Tom

I am a published writer and public speaker with a business background. I have a BA with honors in History from Hofstra University and an MBA in Finance, also from Hofstra. I authored the chapter “Managing Municipal Bond Portfolios for High Net Worth Investors” published in The Handbook of Municipal Bonds. I have published three articles in Forbes and two in the Great South Bay Magazine. In my investment career, I've written nearly 100 bond credit reports and over 20 bond articles that have appeared online.

I have three children and through the years I have helped all of them with their Writing and History assignments. I have guided two of my children through their AP History courses. I've spent a lot of time in my career teaching clients and colleagues about bonds. I've been told by many people that I explain things very well and that I should have been a teacher. I enjoy the challenge of finding different ways to explain something in understandable terms and I enjoy seeing the light go on when my students register their understanding. I look forward to using my experience and abilities to help students improve their writing and understanding of History.

Some people are numbers people and some people are words people. I am a words person by a long stretch. I spend a lot of my time reading and writing and I've done a lot of editing of other people's writing. My children accuse me of speaking in full, almost literary sentences. My respect for the spoken and written word fuels my desire to help others improve their writing. I can help students with clear thinking which is the first step to clear writing.

I have a deep love of History and have always had an intuitive understanding of it from an early age. I have developed the skill of big picture perspective and I can teach that skill to others. I am able to explain events and concepts in a clear and understandable way. I'm also able to explain things in a number of ways . This gives me the ability to keep searching for the way that works for each individual student.

I am a tutor with a lot of lifetime experience. Please let me know how I can help you with your Writing and with your study of History.
