I earned my BA in English Literature from Providence College in 1968. I hold a MEd from Boston University, a Master of Divinity from the Episcopal Divinity School and a Master of Theology from Boston College.
In my tutoring, I try to build on a student's current strengths as a first step to improving their academic performance. My goal is to establish a collaborative and positive learning environment focused on the student's particular needs.
I have been teaching in one form or another for over thirty years. Since 2006 I have been teaching graduate courses online at New York University. During that time I have worked with students from all over the world. Most of these students have gone on to receive Master's Degrees and to find work in the private sector.
I have also tutored junior and senior high school students online for over ten years. Most of this tutoring has been in English and English Literature and has focused on reading and writing skills as well as preparation for the PSAT, SAT, and ACT.

Perfect! Wonderful and experienced tutor for my son!
Excellent! My son was very happy with the first lesson and will be continuing.
I never met someone with as much wisdom as Tom. He is patient and is skilled at helping students achieve their best. His strength lies in his ability to empower and teach.
Thomas is intelligent and has a vast amount of knowledge. He teaches his lessons superbly and always surrounds course material with context and wisdom. He understands the underlying concepts and is able to give even more detailed explanations when necessary. He is committed to his students, and ensures that all concepts are fully understood; his communication and listening skills are excellent. He's incredibly conscientious as a teacher; he has drive and commitment. He takes great care in both preparing lessons and reviewing student work.
