About Timothy

I have experience teaching a graduate level remote sensing class, and have a passion for learning programming and data analysis. My education is in Geographic Information Systems, but I regularly use python programming, Stata, and R in my daily work life. I am happy to spend time teaching others, as it means improving my own skills and understanding. I am generally a flexible person when it comes to price and logistics.

My experience is as follows: I have 7 years experience working with GIS data, a masters and bachelor degree, 3 years working with python, and using it daily to solve problems, 2 years experience with Stata, performing general data analysis, and a ~1560 USCF chess rating, with about 20 years of tournament experience, if anyone is interested to gain chess insights.

I am new to tutoring but have taught a graduate remote sensing course at UofM. My approach is to make sure the student is thinking the right way about a solution and to make sure they understand why the answer is the correct one. My availability is mainly in the evenings and weekends.

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.

Chess

I have been playing tournaments for 20 years and have a 1560 USCF rating. If you are at this level or below and wish to improve at chess, please contact.

GIS

I have 7+ years experience working with GIS data. I have a formal education, receiving my bachelors and masters in GIS. I am fluent in batch processing data, working with satellite data, overlay analysis, spatial analysis, working with big data, etc..

Python

I have 3 years experience working regularly with python data, where I use it daily to work with GIS data and general data analysis. I took a graduate level Java programming course, and used python in several classes, since it is compatible with ArcGIS software. Since graduate school I have worked for over 2 years as a GIS/data Analyst at the International Food Policy Research Institute, where I currently work remotely.

Generally, I prefer working with students on problems/homework/projects rather than definitions. I particularly have a strong experience with list comprehensions, loops, functions, all things lists and strings (indexing, slicing, replacing, etc..), types, etc..

STATA

I have 2 years working experience with data in Stata. Most of my work experience is general data cleaning and analysis, less on the statistics side. If you are a beginner, or are looking to use Stata more specifically for data cleaning and analysis, I can help. I have worked the last two years using Stata at the International Food Policy Research Institute, as a GIS/data Analyst, working alongside economists who regularly use Stata and require survey data cleaning.
