Dear Customer ,
Thank You for posting your immigration law question today. This is attorney Bill assisting you.
There is a difficulty here because you reentered the US on a tourist visa rather than your F visa.
Theoretically if your F visa is still valid you can continue your OPT; otherwise you need to change status to a F visa again to make your OPT legal.
You should file the following form with USCIS to change non-immigrant status back to F1 status
We are here to help.
Please follow up with me as required.
