Course Title: The Wire: Not for the Faint of Heart (Winter Term 2023) 
Participant Testimonials:

Welcoming and listened poliitely to some inane questions, with a great sense of humor.

Tom is a gem. His opening monologues can be on anything, but are always interesting and entertaining. He is very open to discussions on nearly any topic relating somehow to the course.

Course Title: Rome 2.0: Octavian, Mark Anthony, Brutus and Cleopatra Take the Stage (Fall Term 2022)
Participant Testimonials:

Tom's passion for the subject matter comes through loud and clear. 

Tom's commentary around the episodes were particularly helpful in providing context and insights. His "show and tell" items contributed to the "realness" of the materials.

Course Title: Rome (Spring Term 2022)
Participant Testimonials:

Loved the course! Tom is witty and very knowledgeable.

I think learning should be fun, but that we can also come away with new and substantive understanding. Both were accomplished.
