About Tim


Bio

Hi, I'm Tim! I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2017. I have been working various jobs in the engineering industry since, and I have realized that my favorite activities have been teaching, training, and tutoring students, coworkers, and friends. I was near the top of my class at UCF, where I had earned the Provost Scholarship, which only awarded to around 50 students each class. I also earned my Certified SolidWorks...

Hi, I'm Tim! I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2017. I have been working various jobs in the engineering industry since, and I have realized that my favorite activities have been teaching, training, and tutoring students, coworkers, and friends. I was near the top of my class at UCF, where I had earned the Provost Scholarship, which only awarded to around 50 students each class. I also earned my Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) license while studying there. I have found the best approach for tutoring to be to individualize the lessons for the student's learning style. Flexibility is key in ensuring that each student gets the attention and specific approach that they need.

I have one year of experience training other employees in SolidWorks CAD software, and I have many years of experience helping friends with everything from Algebra to Aerothermodynamics. My background with computers is in Excel, MATLAB, SolidWorks, and C. I also have experience helping teach friends physics, math from Algebra 1 up to Calculus, and mechanical engineering classes such as fluid mechanics and aerodynamics. The differences between providing official training or tutoring and providing informal help are mostly contained in the planning phases. Tutoring and training involves a lot more work making lesson plans and modifying my teaching style to fit the student's learning style, whereas informal help tends to be more spontaneous with little planning.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or if you wish to schedule lessons or meetings. I am constantly looking to improve my teaching and presentations, so feel free to leave me any suggestions or feedback that you have; I would love to hear it!

Subjects

Business

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel

Around 5-6 years of heavy Excel usage including modeling, simulation, and analysis of internal gas turbine flows, a airfoil analysis, VBA scripting and programming for various tasks, data analysis and plotting, and miscellaneous tasks such as budgeting and organizing data stored in multiple locations.

Computer

MATLAB,

MATLAB

I have a good understanding of basic MATLAB functionality including looping, function calls, arrays, graphing, indexing, and solving systems of equations.

Solidworks,

Solidworks

I have used SolidWorks to create a variety of projects including wind turbines, unmanned aircraft, mechanical arms, cube satellites, and storm protection systems. I Frequently used SolidWorks at my first job and was responsible for training staff there. I earned an Associate certification in May 2016 with ease and have been very actively using SolidWorks ever since. Many of my projects have seen real-life manufacturing, and I am very familiar with SolidWorks Drawings.
