About Tomo

I received my Bachelors Degree from Tufts University in Psychology and World Literature. My main extracurricular activity while at college was heading the Tufts branch of a non-profit organization that provided free exam and college prep to low income students in the local school system. Aside from exam and college prep, I have tutored a wide variety of subjects from writing, Japanese, math up to AP Calc, psychology, American & world history, and literature. I enjoy trying to understand the motivations that drive us to learn and creating an environment that sparks the joy of learning. I like to approach each lesson from many different directions and by using many different styles, incorporating a combination of visuals, audio, touch, etc.

The best writing coach you can find! Helps break down the steps by having you explain what you are trying to write, then takes you through a painless journey to get you to completion. I wish I had discovered Tomo years ago!
