About Thomas

I taught high school English for 40 years and served for much of that time as English department chairman at Briarcliff High School in Westchester County, NY, where I also coordinated the school's Writing Lab. In 1997, I was named Teacher of the Year in the Briarcliff Manor Public Schools. I have also taught as an adjunct instructor at several area colleges. My publications include some academic writing, articles on Irish history and culture, and some human-interest pieces for local magazines. I'm currently writing memoir and fiction. I lead a writing workshop in Kent Lakes, NY, and co-direct one on Cape Cod. Occasionally, I record selected blog posts as a commentator on Pawling Pubic Radio, WPWL, 103.7 FM.

I am experienced in teaching all aspects of English--writing, grammar, reading, vocabulary, and speaking--with a particular emphasis on coaching students one-on-one. I specialize in teaching editing and proofreading. I help each student to recognize his or her individual strengths and to build upon them while also addressing skills areas that need to be developed. Quite frankly, I help students to believe in their own possibilities and then to hone their skills in light of their goals. Over the years, my work as a writer has afforded me a unique perspective on the importance of audience, purpose, and tone in writing.
In addition to working with students and aspiring writers, I am available for small group corporate sessions and corporate workshops.

While I prefer to tutor in a private room in a public library, I can make other arrangements for a quiet space. Our first meeting is always a free consultation session to see if we're a good fit. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy for scheduled tutoring sessions. I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how I can help you achieve your English goals.
