About Tom


Bio

I have taught English classes for over 15 years, grades 6 -12. I have tutored in all aspects of English and Language Arts, as well as Common core HS algebra, geometry, Integrated math1I , history, life science, biology, physics and other assorted classes. I originally came from NY to go to Law school at California Western law school. I never finished as I ran out of money, and had to work full time. I started teaching a few years later, earning my credential as I taught at a private school....

I have taught English classes for over 15 years, grades 6 -12. I have tutored in all aspects of English and Language Arts, as well as Common core HS algebra, geometry, Integrated math1I , history, life science, biology, physics and other assorted classes. I originally came from NY to go to Law school at California Western law school. I never finished as I ran out of money, and had to work full time. I started teaching a few years later, earning my credential as I taught at a private school. At the previous school I worked at, I taught Chinese students with 2nd to 5th grade reading levels, helping them to achieve improvements of up to 2-5 grade levels in a year. I absolutely love being able to take information that is confusing to a student, and assist them in reaching that moment they exclaim, "I get it!" I love watching their growth as they realize, they CAN comprehend math or they do understand that The Scarlet Letter is more about the town than it is about Hester. I love helping students understand Shakespeare, and his innuendos in his plays. When teaching British Literature, I was fascinated by where the English language originated from. I love inspiring students of all ages to fall in love with reading.

I have a single subject English teacher for grades 6-12. I earned a masters in Education with emphasis on Best Practices. I have taught at two different private schools in English, ranging from 6th grade to 12th grade. The schools I have taught at have used aBeka, Implications of Literature, as well as novel based curriculum. I am currently at a Charter school that uses Common Core curriculum. Vocabulary development, grammar, reading comprehension and literature are my strengths. I have also taught the Pearson classes in Government and Economics. At the charter school I currently tutor in English, History, Math and most subjects from 6th to 12th grade.

If I am able to help you in any way, please contact me. I am interested in answering questions you may have, and get to know you. Tuesday and Thursday af
