About Timothy


Bio

I have a B.S. degree in Biophysics from CU Denver and am currently enrolled in an accelerated MBA program at CU Denver Business School. My tutoring experience is one year at the Learning Resource Center (LRC) at the CU Denver campus, in which I tutored students with special needs either privately or in groups.

I have a B.S. degree in Biophysics from CU Denver and am currently enrolled in an accelerated MBA program at CU Denver Business School. My tutoring experience is one year at the Learning Resource Center (LRC) at the CU Denver campus, in which I tutored students with special needs either privately or in groups.

In regards to what I get out of tutoring, I enjoy the experience of guiding the students through material I wish I had help on during my time enrolled in my undergraduate physics and math classes, and observing their accelerated progress. I also enjoy solidifying my knowledge, as with any type of subject we are prone to forgetting formulas and systematic steps in solving for solutions. I understand the journey in mathematics is a rough one without the proper guidance, so I am here to show you the way.

I have completed Calculus I, II, and III both Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations, Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos, Mathematical Methods in Physics. I have also taken Computational Physics, in which I had to solve, discretize, encode, graph and describe behavior of ordinary and partial differential equations using Python and MATLAB programming languages.

I collaborated with physics professors on the dynamics of proteins concentrations involved in Rheumatoid Arthritis, and am currently studying Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation.

My strongest suite is tutoring Physics I and II (Calculus and non-calculus based), which involve the forces of gravity (Translational, rotational, oscillating, and projectile motion) and electromagnetism (Coulomb's law, static electricity, currents and voltages in circuits, electromagnetic wave oscillations). If any help is needed in these areas, I will be more than happy to launch you past your learning limits.

Calculus,

Calculus

Completed Computational Physics, along with Calculus I, II, and III. Computational Physics involves multi-dimensional modeling which is used through calculus, but involves programming functions and mapping them out to describe diffusion, advection, dispersion, etc. The physics courses I have completed involve using all three levels of calculus, such as taking derivatives and integrals for almost every assignment. In Classical Mechanics, for example, we would have find generic solutions by using calculus with the Euler-Lagrange equations. I also taught calculus-based physics I and II at the CU Denver Learning Resource Center (LRC) as well.
Physics

Physics

Tutored physics I & II (Calc and non-calculus based), and optics extensively. Completed my B.S. degree in Physics from CU Denver, one of the most rigorous programs offered by the college, with a 3.60 GPA. I have completed courses known to stop many students from continuing further in the field, such as Quantum Mechanics, Principles of Electricity and Magnetism, Classical Mechanics, Computational Physics, and Mathematical Methods for Physicists.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

Used Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations extensively in Vibrations and Waves, as well as my Differential Equations courses at CU Denver. In V & W, we had to use matrices to find the eigenvectors and eigenvalues for oscillating systems such as coupled springs, pendulums, or electrical circuits. In differential equations, we also had to both plot and find solutions to first and second order homogenous and non-homogenous differential equations, which I used extensively and are common throughout the course. Other materials in the subject matter I am proficient with are reading phase planes, bifurcation diagrams, and limit cycles. Lastly, I have used them extensively in computational physics, from finding analytical solutions to plotting them on MATLAB.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

Completed following math courses pertaining to Linear Algebra: Mathematical Methods for Physicists, Junior and Senior [Advanced] Laboratory, Computational Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Linear Algebra & Differential Equations, Vibrations and Waves. All employed knowledge of Linear Algebra, and particularly used this in Computational Physics and Advanced Lab courses where Python and MATLAB were required to compute differential equations, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and more. Quantum Mechanics & Atomic and Molecular Physics heavily relied on this field as well.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is constantly used in physics courses, and is one of the key elements to solving 2D & 3D problems using vector analysis. Courses that use this extensively are: Calculus III and Principles of Electricity and Magnetism, where 3D trigonometry is used constantly. Additionally, in Vibrations and Waves/Oscillations courses, it is imperative to understand trigonometric functions to find wave state solutions, which I have completed.

Knows his stuff and has great writing

I went into this tutoring session with no knowing the material and not only did I come out understanding the relation between current, power, voltage, R equivalents etc... Timothy was able to explain to explain these problems to me in a very digestible way.

Blake, 2 lessons with Timothy

Very knowledgeable && patient

Very helpful && understanding! He was willing to give deep explanations to the questions asked. He also gave me the chance to answer the question before giving feedback ! If you’re looking for a reliable physics tutor , he is most definitely the man !

Jordyn, 1 lesson with Timothy

Very Knowledgeable

Timothy explains everything very clearly and is very understanding. I had some trouble with complex concepts but he took the time to explain them in a very simplified way. It was an absolutely great experience, and I highly recommend him for physics!

Kaushal, 1 lesson with Timothy

Knowledgable tutor

He was a huge help with my summer physics course. He was able to demonstrate examples and thoroughly explain each problem. He helped me study for my final and successfully pass the course. I highly recommend this tutor.

Rachel, 2 lessons with Timothy

Physics 1

Tim did a great job explaining the topics related to kinematic and force problems. It was clear he knew his stuff and was able to explain in a way where I was able to understand it as well. Would recommend.

John , 1 lesson with Timothy

Good at showing problems step by step

Timothy did a great job showing me how to do my homework assignments. We went through each problem step by step and he showed clearly how to do the problems. He is very helpful when it comes to determine units and converting.

Carson, 3 lessons with Timothy

Very good at breaking things down

He does a great job explaining things down to the little details. He was able to break down my physics problems so I could better understand them and apply what ive learned to other difficult questions

Austin, 4 lessons with Timothy

Very Helpful and Great Guy!

Tim helped me a lot with my studies and made sure to go step by step with instruction which most Professor don’t do often(which they should).Overall amazing recommend him for sure!

Jack, 3 lessons with Timothy

Very patient and shows you step by step

Timothy did a great job showing me how to do my homework assignments. We went through each problem step by step and he helped me with each part allowing me to attempt them first. He even helped me out with a lab problem after our session was over.
