My teaching and tutoring methods incorporate a critical pedagogical approach to the topic. In other words, I am not a preacher, who will dictate to you how something has to be done, but instead, I am more of a facilitator, and we will work together on your project.
I am an adjunct English composition instructor with four years of classroom teaching experience and 5+ years of tutoring in writing centers. I currently teach at a small, private university, but I have community college, and career college experience as well.

Thomas and I go back about ten years. He was one of the very best students in our grad program in English Studies at Humboldt State University in the beautiful redwoods of northern California. I loved having him in my grad courses. He has a great deal of teaching experience after working as a tutor (a very popular one) in the Writing Center, and teaching in his own classroom in our Composition Program. He has a deep love of modern literature and is extremely intelligent about pop music, especially Metal. He is smart, very well trained in literacy pedagogy, and funny. I am certain that you would love working with him.
I have know Mr. King for about ten years and he has been my greatest writing editor and has encouraged me to keep on writing my memoir.
Thomas is a splendid English teacher. We worked together as writing consultants and his help and input in the group and for me personally was invaluable. He is quite talented, smart, and easy to approach because he is so kind and laid back. Thomas is a true writing shaman
I acted as Thomas' direct supervisor for four academic years while he was employed as a Writing Consultant within the Humboldt State University Writing Studio. As a Writing Consultant, Thomas worked one-on-one and online with fellow students on writing projects in any subject area, offering feedback on all aspects of college writing from thesis development to APA citation style. During his time in the Writing Studio, Thomas distinguished himself as a talented, knowledgeable, and empathetic tutor propelled by a deep sense of responsibility and dedication to student learning.
Thomas has undergone extensive training in writing pedagogy and theory and has experience working with students from a range of socioeconomic, linguistic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds, including English Language Learners and first-generation college students. I highly recommend Thomas as a writing tutor and teacher.
