About Tom

Hi! I'm a super friendly human named Tom ready to assist with all your English language tutoring/editing needs. Let me tell you a bit about myself. I graduated from college as a literature/philosophy double major and a sociology/political science double minor. As an undergraduate I worked for 2 years in the Tutoring Center and graduated with 161 credits and a GPA of 3.87. For the last 4 years I have been working at Bronx Community College as an administrator, academic adviser, and adjunct professor in the Social Science Department. I scored in the 95th percentile on the verbal section and a 4.5 on the writing section of the GRE. I can tutor, workshop, proofread, edit, write bibliographies-- really whatever you need! I'm most experienced working in MLA and APA style but I can generally navigate other formats, just ask. I'm extremely competent, patient, and outgoing.

In September of 2015 I will be starting a PhD in Urban Education Policy at the University of Southern California. This is my dream program but it means I have to prepare move to LA this summer; due to some recent family crises I have very little savings to effect that transition. So whether you're a parent looking for someone to work with your middle/high school child or a college student that needs help with a paper, I promise to provide all the assistance I can (short of outright writing anything for you). I've never once had a job in which I didn't completely dedicate myself. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out. I will reply promptly. I'm willing to travel basically anywhere in NYC, except Staten Island.

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you!
