About Thomas J

I am a permanently certified Elementary Education teacher with ten years of experience. I have lead Social Studies and Science departments and have a Master's degree in Childhood Education and Educational Leadership. I have recreation and coaching experience with the City of Rochester and the University of Rochester.

As a tutor, I believe that the individual and small group attention that a student receives allows them to work through any issues and grow as a student. The structure and focus of any tutoring session must be customized and build the confidence of the student.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a permanently certified New York State Pre-K to 6th grade teacher. I have nine years experience teaching all subjects to grades 4,5 and 6. I was a Social Studies specialist and department chair but have prepared students in all areas. I have extensive experience preparing students for state assessments in Math, ELA, Social Studies and Science. All of my lessons are interactive and multi disciplinary. I try to use new techniques and media to provide the student with a multi sensory learning experience.

In addition to the daily classroom, I organized and lead after school remediation in Math and ELA. I have prepared six students for high school entrance exams and have tutored three students in middle school Math. Through my post graduate work I have developed curriculum in all intermediate grades and subjects.
