Tom does not make the class easy for you, he challenges you. He does not spell anything out for you and makes you interpret things for yourself. He is not clear, he gives mixed messages and will never give you a straight answer. He is the wisest man I know and, although he will never take this complement, the best teacher you will ever have. He is retired now but his students will be forever greatful for the lessons we learned. Thank you for you inspiration.

Tom was one of the best teachers I had at Athenian. Take anything he offers. (He also gives you snacks in his house during class)
