About Thomas

Hello! I graduated college with a BA in Biology with a minor in Chemistry in 2021, and am now a Computer Science master's student at Newcastle University, United Kingdom. So far, my research has been focused on data analytics using R studio and ArcGIS Pro to find regional correlations of biological processes using several statistical analyses, including Generalized Linear Regression and the Random Forest Machine Learning Algorithm. My experience with both the lab-based courses and statistical/computing principles of Biology provided me with a strong basis on the subject and immersed me into the dynamic applications of this subject, both career and research wise (there are so much more than people think!).

Despite my scientific trajectory in college, I have studied Latin for 5 years, including AP Latin in high school, two college courses, and was even awarded a medal in the National Classical Etymology Exam. Through eagerly translating the works of Virgil, Homer, Ovid, and many more ancient authors, it became clear that in order to conquer Latin's extensive grammar, one must conquer his/her own native language's grammar first.

I really struggled with Latin at first, until I got an excellent tutor who completely transformed this language that I had marked as tedious and boring into a fun and interesting narrative to explore. My fascination with Latin evolved into a passion for language learning, where I surprisingly applied my Latin grammar knowledge to learning conversational Chinese, as I knew from Latin how English grammatical structures could manifest into all different types of structures.

My goal is to tutor students at their own pace with catchy mnemonics, clever strategies I've tried and tested myself, and lots and lots of questions.

Feel free to contact me with any questions and/or to schedule a lesson!
