About Thomas

I have been teaching college English for 18 years and really enjoy doing it. I studied for my undergraduate and graduate degrees in English at The College of Staten Island, City University of New York.

Before teaching college, I taught high school English in Staten Island and Brooklyn, New York. I graded SAT essays and tutored students individually and in small groups. I still do that today in my current position. I love to read contemporary literary fiction, science fiction, and young adult literature. I enjoy music and writing, and for relaxation and enjoyment, I play guitar and write short stories.

I'm a family man. I'm married and have three daughters, whom I tutored through their years in middle school and high school. Once they got to college, the were well prepared. When I'm not spending time with my family or working, I like to watch movies, mostly action adventure and science fiction.


I've helped many students improve their writing and develop a better understanding and sometimes love of literature, through my eighteen years of teaching English. I've had writing conferences with students who were struggling in writing essays, and because of the techniques I taught them, the vast majority improved their reading comprehension and writing skills.

I've been working with Microsoft Word, from the early days (Word 97) to the current version (Office 365 and Word 2016), for my individual needs and my duties as a teacher. Through the years, I've learned a lot about navigating through the software and even a good number of short cuts that can help ease the process of learning.
