Tim Lou's Classroom
Director of Studies
I help students learn about physical laws that govern our world, from the smallest (particles) to the biggest (our universe), and along with all the tools – mathematics and programming – that are needed to understand these laws.
Physics is a vast subject, and there are many layers of subjects with great variation of difficult – from very easy to very difficult. I provide tailored materials for learners at all levels. At the basic introductory college level, the free Feynman Lectures are excellent. The more advanced student can take a look at the excellent textbook by David Griffiths, "Introduction to Elementary Particles".
I am a particle physicist passionate about making science accessible to everyone. I spent years learning about the deepest laws governing our universe, while struggling through all the mathematics and all the subtleties. I have also published numerous papers, contributing to our understanding of nature at the forefront.
It gives me great joy to learn how the universe works and to be able to contemplate and help solve the mysteries of our universe. I want to share these amazing things I've learned with you, and hopefully help you avoid the unnecessary hurdles I faced when I was a student.
