About

Over the past decade, I have worked with hundreds of students – from elementary to graduate school – as a tutor and writing teacher. I have designed workshops, syllabi, curricula, and training programs for educational institutions, nonprofits, and tutoring agencies. I’m the creator of Constellate, a tutoring method designed to be the most effective and exhaustive method for studying for and taking standardized tests. I graduated from the Ethical Culture Fieldston School, and hold an MFA in Creative Writing from Brooklyn College and a BA in English from Pomona College.

Tom brings an extraordinary depth of humanity and insight to his instruction, which enhances his work and enriches the lives of his students. He excels at developing novel ways of reaching students to help them not only carry out the mechanics of a skill, but more importantly, how to develop as learners.
