"I worked under Tom for almost two years all across Latin America, and he pushed me to grow as a businessperson and manager in so many ways. Working with Tom, I learned how to speak up and stand out in a fast-paced environment saturated with a lot of voices. Tom helped me to grow into an effective, powerful, and exacting force, and I will always remember the multitude of workplace lessons I took from our experience working together."

Jordan A. ParryEducation Management & Program Development at ShareLingo
"Tom is a powerful force. Tom was one of my TEFL instructors in Costa Rica in August '08 and subsequently became my manager while teaching in Cusco, Peru until February of '09. Tom brings a large quantity of positive attributes to the table. He has an unparalleled combination of intelligence, confidence, and enthusiasm, which is second to none. As my TEFL instructor, he would consistently bring a positive and energetic attitude to the classroom. He would always present new material in an extremely clear and focused manner. This, in conjunction with a strong attention to detail, enabled me to digest lots of new information in a short amount of time. He also provided me with honest and constructive feedback after the "mini-lesson" portion of TEFL training, which proved invaluable later on in my teaching. It quickly becomes apparent after meeting Tom that he has a success driven mindset combined with a seemingly innate fearlessness to face all of life's challenges head on. In addition, Tom possesses a fantastic sense of humor. He kept me laughing from day one until my final departure from Maximo Nivel and made my time abroad some of the best days of my life. He was the major reason I accepted a teaching position in Cusco, Peru. I clearly recommend him to any organization and fully support him in any future endeavors he chooses to pursue."

"I had the honor of working under Tom at Maximo Nivel, Cusco Peru. In my time there, I found Tom to be an extraordinary boss and manger.
...
Additionally Tom always keeps in mind the well being of his employees and is highly understanding and flexible. Working with Tom was an amazing experience, which I would love to do again any day."

"I have had the pleasure and benefit of working with Tom. Tom has provided direction in instability, is focused and driven in his daily work habit and is a fearless leader focused on the P&L. Tom taught me several things, first and foremost, the right team drives success. He is a great CEO with a broad understanding of business and what is required to succeed. I sincerely hope I have the pleasure of working on Tom's team again in the future."
SC DixonStealtfully looking for the next great opportunity!
"I have known Tom since he was the CFO of Smart Systems International(SSI) in the 1990s. I was on the Board of Directors and a personal friend of Joe Riley, the Founder and CEO of SSI. Both Joe and I come from Silicon Valley. Tom was a key part of the start-up team at SSI and a critical contributor to the early development of the company and its subsequent success. Tom demonstrated key financial and business leadership stretching beyond the role of a typical senior financial executive. Indeed, after the death of the Founder, Tom and I closed an $11MM equity financing that was essential to the company's survival. The success of the financing was in large part due to his financial expertise as the CFO, and his infectious energy and enthusiasm to get the deal done, and bring the Company to financial safety. Tom was also intimately involved in sales and all other areas of operations. After Joe's death, the responsibility to bring SSI to safety and later to success was on my and Tom's shoulders. After the financing and when I joined as President and CEO, Tom and I worked closely on a daily basis building a formidable business platform that poised SSI for rapid future growth. Tom's input and help reached far beyond the financial area and into every other part of the Company's operations. With Tom's help, we moved SSI (a company that previously was out of cash and had few solid sales prospects) to profitability and ongoing operations within months of the close of the financing. Tom was a pleasure to work with, to coach and mentor. And now, it's great to see how he has continued to mature into a seasoned business executive and has grown leaps and bounds beyond just a financial guy. I am delighted to recommend Tom and wish him continued success in his career."

"Tom Kearin is a very energetic, creative and consistent TEFL instructor. I had a great time learning from him, as he taught my class the TEFL basics, and then worked with us, individually, to strengthen our teaching techniques and build our confidence. The structure of Tom's classes allowed him to provide us with all of the necessary skills and information to become strong ESL teachers, in a matter of just a few weeks and it is because of his precision and tremendous teaching skills that I'm glad I took his class. I graduated from Tom's TEFL course with a very strong sense of achievement, and a newfound confidence in my teaching abilities. Tom is very professional, and handled even those students who struggled with great respect. His words were nothing but encouraging, and he definitely knows how to build energy in a classroom. I have nothing but good things to say about Tom, and am very glad to have had the opportunity to learn this very valuable skill from him."

"Tom was a great TEFL instructor. I was his TEFL student in Peru in summer of 2008. He was very energetic and encouraging of his students. He was very confident and knowledgeable of the topic and helped instill that confidence in his students. He worked well with others in a group and individually to help us improve our teaching skills. Tom was a wonderful teacher, motivator, and overall mentor for his students."
...
"Tom was my TEFL Trainer at Maximo Nivel in 2007. He was an excellent instructor, provided great feedback, was very high energy and motivating. I learned a great deal from Tom, and can't imagine what my teaching experience would have been like without my superb TEFL course."
...
"Mr. Kearin is one of the most thorough and passionate people I know.

"Tom was my instructor in the TESOL program at Maximo Nivel in Cusco, Peru. He was a consummate professional in every way. He took the study of English grammar and transformed it into something that was interesting, fun, and actually exciting. Even though he had taught this course many times before, Tom brought an infectious enthusiasm to every lesson.
...
Taking Tom's class gave me purpose and much respect amoungst the locals. Being an an English teacher helped me feel as though I had a place in the Peru instead of just being a tourist. I will always be greatful for my experience. Thanks Peru, thanks Maximo Nivel, and thanks Tom."

"Tom" was my teacher at Maximo Nivel in Cuzco, Peru. Tom was a superb teacher in every facet within the classroom. He demonstrated his wealth of knowledge not only in the arena of how to teach future teachers, but he also exhibited the rare ability of working with a diverse array of students and supporting them through their journey as student teachers. Tom's people skills and ability to practice what he preaches are just some of the skill sets that makes him a valuable resource no matter where he chooses to work."
...
"Thom trained me to be an ESL teacher during a TEFL program in Cusco, Peru. Tom is a dynamic, high-energy instructor who manages to not only capture the essence of solid, successful ESL teaching but who also has a delivery and style which are both invigorating and motivational. I was one of eleven students in his class over the course of a month, and I never felt out of the loop or overlooked. Tom did an excellent job of inclusiveness, and helped craft a rapport among the students which proved to be self-sustaining. For these reasons and many others, I highly recommend Thomas Wayne Kearin in any training capacity."

"I had the opportunity to learn from Mr. Kearin in May of 2008. Stepping into Cusco, Peru to learn to be an instructor of English as a foreign language had always been a dream of mine. Little did I know the difficulties that were to lie ahead. Fortunately, I had Tom as my instructor and, although things on my side were not good in the beginning, his guidance allowed me to become a good instructor and pass the course with confidence.

Tom Kearin provided me with the opportunity to educate Peruvian people in the Andean city of Cusco. The language institute, "Maximo Nivel Intercultural Center," is a phenomenal organization at which teachers, students, and volunteers get together to share cultural and linguistic ideas (as well as other projects). While working at Maximo, Tom gave me autonomy during class time (a hands-off management style) while also facilitating workshops and other opportunities to grow as an ESL Instructor. These meetings allowed teachers to share ideas and to develop as individuals, ultimately improving the teachers and the language institute collectively.

Originally a CPA (starting his career at KPMG), Tom went above and beyond by offering certification courses for Business English (as well as for TOEFL / International Exams). These certifications strengthened my resume and made my time in Cusco even more worthwhile. My experience at Maximo Nivel was outstanding, and I appreciate Tom's willingness to help me every step of the way. Be sure to reach out to Tom and the rest of the Maximo Nivel team during your job search.

When I met Tom he was, and still is, the General Manager at Maximo Nivel. I took the TEFL course there, which I highly recommend to anyone. I then went on to take the course in Exam Preparation, which is also extremely helpful. Tom has been a very congenial and professional person to know and to study under. He is interested in the students and the professors who work for him. He is always easy to reach, and is available to his staff and students for questions. Tom has a pleasant personality, treats people fairly, and it is always a joy to see him helping everyone. I highly recommend him as a General Manager, and for any endeavor he might pursue in the future.

I studied and worked under Tom when I was at Maximo Nivel in Cusco, Peru. Tom was lead TEFL instructor and General Manager of Maximo Nivel.

...
Tom exhibited several characteristics that I believe should characterize a person in any profession, especially an instructor and/or General Manager of an organization: attention to detail as it concerns the subject matter or performance of an organization; honest and accurate criticism/critique of student or worker performance; a sense of humor; and likability. I observed these characteristics from Tom and strive to exhibit these very same qualities in my professional capacity. I highly recommend Tom in any profession he endeavors to pursue in the near future!
