It's simple, when you plant your tomato plants, put a toothpick (or a small stick) right next to the plant. Make sure it touches the plant. A cutworm needs to be able to wrap itself around the plant completely in order to cut it. With a toothpick or small stick in-between, it can't cut.

Some people wrap aluminum foil around the stems.

We use the centers of toilet paper rolls. Cut into short sections about 2 inches high. Cut a slit in the roll and wrap around the plant. Use on tomatoes, cabbage and broccoli.
