About Tim

Hello! I have been involved with the sport of lacrosse for nearly 15 years, playing from middle school through college, and now currently with a post collegiate club out of Greensboro, NC. I have been a volunteer clinic coach with the Triad Blackhawks youth programs for the last 3 years, and served as an Assistant coach for Southwest Guilford High School during the 2011 season. I have played all field positions at one point or another in my career, though I will always consider myself a middie. Thus far in my coaching career, I have focused primarily on players new to the game. I feel lacrosse is an exciting sport that brings something special to the table for those only familiar with baseball, basketball, etc. It is my goal to instill the exciting tradition of the game, while also demonstrating the importance of sportsmanship, leadership, and of course fun/love of the game.

Beyond lacrosse, I have a BS in environmental sciences from UNC-Chapel Hill, have served as a staff scientist for a non-profit research institute in Research Triangle Park for the past 4 years. My science background has been extremely multidisciplinary, with experience in both the life and physical sciences. If a lacrosse player is struggling with math or science topics such as algebra, geometry, univariate calculus, biology, marine science, environmental science, or similar, I am more than happy to also help out. In the past I was responsible for training courses for a coast wide federal fishing survey. I have experience breaking down seemingly complex problems into small manageable blocks for easier intellectual digestion.

I truly enjoy helping others understand the world around us, just as I strive to continue to learn and grow with them. I look forward to further discussion, and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. Grow the game, and treat it well!

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.

Ecology

I have a BS in environmental sciences from UNC-Chapel Hill. This included coursework in the biological sciences, ecology, marine sciences, and more general environmental sciences. Post graduation, I served as an environmental scientist for an non-profit research institute, with focus on human and environmental risk assessment, as well as fisheries management.

Lacrosse

I have been playing lacrosse for 15 years, and have 3 years of direct coaching experience at the youth and high school level. This includes first time players at the elementary (4-7 years) level, youth players (7-10 years), and JV/Varsity high school lacrosse. I was an assistant coach at Southwest Guilford High School for the 2011 season. I unfortunately left the program due to a relocation for my job as an environmental scientist.

Recently, my work schedule has changed, thus allowing me to take on coaching roles once again. Beyond individual lacrosse sessions, I may also be taking on another high school coaching role with a new local area high school for the 2015 season.

Outside direct lacrosse coaching, I am also an accomplished lacrosse stringer, and distance runner.

Physical Science

I have a BS in environmental sciences from UNC-Chapel Hill. This included specific coursework such as climate modeling, environmental fluid dynamics, and environmental problem solving, all of which are directly related to the general physical science curriculum. Beyond those specific courses, I also completed undergraduate courses in calculus, biology, chemistry, geology, and physics. Post graduation, I served as an environmental scientist for a non-profit research institute. Contract work involved use of groundwater and leachate models, as well as intricate knowledge of different environmental systems.
