About Thomas

Is your child showing signs of frustration? Are you less than satisfied with their quarterly grades? Perhaps I can help.

I've made a life-long commitment to educating others in a variety of settings: classroom instruction in elementary, middle, and high school through the college level (supervision of student teachers). I have successfully tutored students both on the phone (Dial-a-Teacher) and in person. I have taught in a variety of settings including public schools, adult education programs, charitable groups, and correctional institutions. My mission continues even today as I perform as a volunteer teaching citizenship classes to immigrants to our nation.

I enjoy establishing a rapport with each of my students based upon their needs and interests. I especially enjoy math and ELA instruction. In addition, I'm certified in secondary social studies and can help your child make sense of those sometimes difficult to understand primary documents.

Please feel free to contact me on my cell phone-I promise a quick response!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have over 25 years of experience in elementary education. Most of this experience was as a classroom teacher in grades 4, 5, and 6. I am especially proficient in math instruction through the use of games and strategies involving manipulatives.

Elementary Math

I like to incorporate games and activities designed to motivate my students.

Social Studies

I possess certification in Secondary Social Studies in both New York and New Jersey. More importantly, I am an avid student of American history and politics.
