About Thomas

I have been teaching English as a Second Language for over ten years at a number of adult programs in Rhode Island, and I am currently teaching at International Institute of Rhode Island, where I have been for eight years. In addition, in the past I taught at colleges and am currently teaching remedial reading and writing at Community College of Rhode Island.

Overall, I have at least ten years as an adult educator. Before teaching, I worked in business and then realized it wasn't my true calling. I like the classroom setting, but I also like the tutorial setting because it allows for more individualized attention than a classroom setting would normally provide.
