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.
