About Tim

I have been tutoring and teaching math and physics for over 5 years to both high school and college students. Throughout both my undergraduate and graduate studies, I served as a teaching assistant in physics and astronomy classes. I have also worked as a researcher in astrophysics and high energy physics, but I discovered in grad school that my passion is teaching more so than research. For this reason, I am currently pursuing a secondary education certificate.

I feel very comfortable teaching mathematics from algebra to calculus and physics at the high school or college level. I have deep knowledge of these topics and have utilized math in my everyday life for as long as I can remember. I am also the son of two teachers and learned from a young age how to instruct and share my knowledge with others.

It is often said that math is the language of the universe. I had to be completely proficient in high level mathematics to even begin learning graduate physics. I have also taken many pure math courses up to graduate level and utilized math on a daily basis throughout my post-secondary career.

I have a B.S. and M.S. in Physics with emphases in astrophysics at both levels. As a teaching assistant, my job was to work directly with students to help foster understanding and provide a different way of explaining concepts from the professor. This is precisely what I can do as a tutor as well.

I prefer tutoring in parallel with students' classes using the same materials that their instructors use. However, I have access to many other educational resources, both online and in print, and I can help sift through the overwhelming supply of online physics information. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule an appointment.I

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Astronomy

I specialized in astrophysics for both my undergraduate and graduate physics degrees. I have been a teaching assistant for astronomy classes on multiple occasions, and have completed extensive graduate coursework in astrophysics myself. I have also engaged in approximately 2 years of astrophysical research.

Calculus

As a physics undergraduate and graduate student, calculus was the language of my degrees. I took many college mathematics courses, including upper division, and have used calculus on a daily basis for the last 7 years of my life. I find it to be among the most interesting and useful mathematical subjects.

Physics

I have Masters and Bachelors degrees in physics. Throughout both undergraduate and graduate school, I worked as a teaching assistant for the schools and privately as a tutor. I am passionate about the subject and helping others succeed in it.

Precalculus

I have used Calculus in my daily life for the past eight years. I know the fundamentals very well and can teach basics to prepare students to learn Calculus. I currently tutor many Pre-Calculus students at a local community college and find it to be rewarding and engaging.
