About Timothy

Dr. L has more than 10 years of experience of teaching mathematics as a private tutor and has 3 years of experience of teaching university mathematics as a teaching assistant and as an instructor.

He has received Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics in 2013 and has taught and tutored wide range of mathematical branches including calculus I,II,III, linear Algebra, differential equations for university students. He also has taught pre-calculus, algebra, geometry, trigonometry and elementary math for the secondary school students. Finally, he has taught motivated high school students to prepare America Mathematical Contest(AMC).

Dr.L loves to teach mathematics and share his knowledge of mathematics with his students. His teaching method is very detail oriented and focuses on challenging the students. Mathematics is a discipline which requires patients, hard work and reasoning. Mathematics will improve all these three important areas which will later help students to succeed in their careers.

His teaching philosophy is to give the students considerable degrees of freedom. There may be only one correct answer to a problem but there are many different ways to get that answer. He encourages the students to come up with their own solutions and gives them different ways to approach the problems.

Dr.L's subjects include: AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, Calculus 1,2,3, College Algebra, American Math Competition, Differential Equations, Discrete Mathematics, Geometry, Linear Algebra, Pre-Calculus, SAT Math, SAT Math Subject Test, Probability, and Trigonometry.

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.

Differential Equations

I taught differential equation 2 years as a teaching assistant at RPI and I am currently teaching upper level mathematical modeling class as a lecturer.

Discrete Math

This is closely related to one of my research area combinatorial optimization. Also, I have taught America Math Competition (AMC) which requires an expert knowledge on discrete math

Linear Algebra

I have taught college level linear algebra as an adjunct lecturer. My research area, mathematical programming and polyhedral theory requires possessing an expert knowledge on this subject
