Comment:
Tim's an absolute gem in the rough. I don't like going to early morning classes so so i can't really say much in that regard. His good rating comes from outside the classroom. He's extremely helpful and comes off as really caring. He took an hour during NON office hours to explain the whole assignment to me and anything else i was confused about!

Funny guy, ask him about his brother he will get salty because he makes more money than him. His brother is CEO and makes over 600k a year.

His dad jokes make the class bearable and his pop culture references are incredible. Such a kind and understanding prof in office hours, 10/10 would take again.

Tim is an out going and easy prof. The material in 209 is easy but he makes it clearer to understand. His lecture is not too dry because of his occasional "dad-jokes".

Comment:
Average prof. Lectures can get pretty boring but his examples are sick. Tries (and claims) to be funny but jokes are bland. Often goes on about random stories. You don't have to attend lectures, read the book and you'll be fine. Midterm and exam are taken straight out of the labs and class examples so if you just practice those then its an easy A.

Comment:
this prof is not good, makes a lot of mistakes for the assigments and clarifies way later, often repeats topics in class many times over and seems to get distracted easily with mundance topics, overall i learnt coding from the textbook and slides (from the tb as well) and skipped most lectures. the course is easy tho if you have prior program exp.

Comment:
He is a fantastic professor, he explains everything thoroughly, as a matter of fact, if you just attend the lectures you should be able to get an easy A+. He goes over a lot of examples. However, I didn't like our first midterm at all, although, I was 100% prepared. Plus, I found him really funny and nice. Also he's always there to help students.

Comment:
Great prof. He's very friendly, understands the students and wants to help. His lectures can get boring only because he goes over so many examples (which can be a good thing, because it means he's trying to make sure people understand). He's also pretty funny/entertaining (or at least tries to be) in his lectures. Kind of disorganized though.

Comment:
A pretty chill dude. He likes to get feedback from the class on how he teaches and really gets involved. The labs were a bit tough but he was open to suggestions on how to change them. The final project was alone or in a group and was a ton of fun. Lots of work though. This class should be your focus in the semester if you take it.

Comment:
Was very condescending whenever I asked him for help. After an email for an explanation of a mark he replied he thought the mark he assigned was reasonable and if I were him I should take it. His lecture slides are cutouts from the text book. He doesn't know what he is teaching us in class, after reading his slide he said "oh I didn't know that"

Comment:
His slides are a short version of the textbook, however he can clearly convey concepts and ideas to the class. The information he mentions verbally explains a lot of what is on the board so make sure to also take notes on what he says instead of only the slides.

He's really amazing. He really wants you to learn stuff, and respects and appreciates your curiosity, whether beyond the course material or not. His lecture materials are focused, comprehensive and more importantly applicable in future interests.

Comment:
He tries to be funny at times but it's not really working. At least he knows what he's talking about. I felt cheated on because he said the exam covers every single chapter and since I only had little time to study I spent most of my time practising the last few chapters but then the exam only covered the materials from the midterms...

Tim is a really cool Prof. Lectures are fun. the marking scheme is quite fair as the exam is only 30%. Assignments can be long though but he is available for help. The course does have a lot of material to cover so the tests do required a bit of memory work. if you study the minimum on regular basis, you should get an A.

Great prof !! Don't listen to all the negative remarks, I barely knew how to code in java when I took this class. I became a pro quite quickly thanks to his assignments and explanations. He is also very helpful when you make appointments to see him! Love this guy !! can't wait to take Computer graphics with him!
