About Timothy


Bio

I'm a Computer Science major at UC Irvine graduating this fall. I have 4 years experience tutoring computer science (Python, Web Development, etc.), math, english, speech and debate, essay writing, and test prep. I also have a summer business where I tutor beginner piano. I work great with all age groups, and have experience mentoring/teaching students from 1st grade to college.

I'm a Computer Science major at UC Irvine graduating this fall. I have 4 years experience tutoring computer science (Python, Web Development, etc.), math, english, speech and debate, essay writing, and test prep. I also have a summer business where I tutor beginner piano. I work great with all age groups, and have experience mentoring/teaching students from 1st grade to college. Although I've never taught it, I also love science, and can help you with honors physics, biology, and environmental sciences.

Computer Science and Math are my strongest suit, as most students I tutored in high school/college were struggling with computer science/math subjects. For computer science: I was a TA at UC Irvine for beginner to intermediate Python. I am currently tutoring Python on Wyzant and have 5 clients on a weekly basis. I have 4 years experience writing code in Python and have created a search engine, various web applications, and video games in python. For math: I did Kumon for many years and reached level M. I scored a 1510 on my SAT and a 760 on SAT Math. I can do all math up to Multivariable Calculus (highest math course I've passed at UC Irvine).

I love 1:1 tutoring because that style of tutoring, in my opinion, is the best way to learn something quick, yet thoroughly. With me as your tutor, I'll make sure to make the material engaging for you so learning won't feel like a chore, but a privilege. My goal is to make you proficient in the material ASAP, but that requires effort on your part as well. If you come in with an open-mind and a willingness to learn, the other things (skillset, education level, etc.) don't matter to me. I will help you succeed no matter the odds!

Contact me anytime to schedule a lesson or if you have questions. I am flexible and can sometimes start lessons on the same day. Remember, your success is my priority, and I can promise you that with me tutoring, you'll reach your goal in no time!

Public Speaking

I have 3 years experience teaching/competing in Speech and Debate at my high school - ranging from expository speech to lincoln douglas and public forum debate. I was a canvasser for Doctors without Borders for 3 months. I would go out in public areas and use rhetoric and rapport to both persuade and build a connection with strangers to help donate to my cause. In my time working there I received more than 50 donations and 10 monthly subscriptions.

Studied C++ for three years at UC Irvine. Completed an Intermediate C++ and Data Structures and Algorithms course in C++. I've also done a few personal projects in C++, i.e. a Maze Solver/Generator and a Movie Rental Simulation (using queues, stacks, and heaps). I have also taught a few students C++ on Wyzant, but have listed it under Computer Science as I hadn't gotten around to submitting my qualifications for it!

Very experienced and helpful

I initially described the type of language/programming project I was working on but he figured out what I needed right away and provided me expert guidance on my topic.

Marjorie , 1 lesson with Timothy

Patient and respectful

Takes the time to make sure you understand the material. Keeping you engaged throughout the process of learning the material. He doesn't just throw the answer and move on.

Extremely knowledgeable and very patient

Timothy is a great tutor and a highly recommend him! He helped me understand complex python functions. He is extremely patient, very knowledgeable, professional, polite, and attentive to the needs of the student. He made sure I got the concepts before moving to the next task in my project assignment. I am so grateful to select him as my tutor. I plan to book more sessions with him.

Knowledgeable and Encouraging Tutor

Timothy was great! He helped me comprehend the fundamentals in Python, and taught me how to implement each lesson into my homework. He is very patient and ensures that you are grasping the content covered before moving on. I met with Timothy consistently for two weeks and am so appreciative of his assistance.

Extremely Knowledgeable and Patient - Python and More!

Tim was an absolutely fantastic tutor and I feel lucky to have come across his profile. I am in graduate school and really struggling with my Python. Tim made me feel MUCH better about where I am at! He was extremely professional and walked me through my entire problem from start to finish. I feel significantly more confident in my skills after working with Tim and am looking forward to continuing to learn from him.

Knowledgeable and Helpful Tutor

Timothy has taught me all about coding in IDLE Python. He explains things in a very helpful way. He can easily take complicated topics and break them down into smaller more simple ways that make them much easier to understand. He is a great tutor and I would recommend him to anyone
