Experience

I'm Tim, and I went to the University of Virginia for my undergraduate degree in biology. I've been a camp counselor, babysitter, and older sibling, which means I've been working with children for the majority of my life. I've always loved science, and I enjoy teaching it to others. I like to help students develop their own critical thinking and problem-solving skills so that they can become self-sufficient learners. I believe that this is especially effective in math and science courses, because that fundamental knowledge builds to more complex topics, and if you can think about and apply the knowledge effectively, you will succeed as classes get more complex. I don't just like to give students the answers to problems; instead I hope to help students learn how to learn. I also believe in bringing creativity and fun into sessions to keep students engaged. In my free time, I like to draw and read. I also like reptiles.
