About Thomas

Hello! My name is Thomas, and I am a senior print and digital news major at the University of Missouri. I work as a copy editor for the local Columbia Missourian newspaper and as a tutor for my school's writing center. In an average week, I spend 25 hours editing about 50 pages worth of essays, newspaper articles and cover letters.

As a tutor, my approach is to help students really delve into the essence of their papers, aiming to help them self-reflect and understand why they make the writing choices they do. I also strive to strike a balance between offering students the feedback necessary to guarantee improvement in their papers, while also not spoon-feeding them the answers and challenging them to come up with new ideas of their own.

I tutor primarily English papers for structure, grammar, punctuation and argument, with a helping of personal statements and scientific studies on the side.

Please feel to reach out to me at any time for help with your written works! I look forward to hearing from you.
