Hey my name is Tim, and I graduated from University of California, Irvine. I studied biology and have been involved in neurostemcell/Alzheimer's research for a majority of my time at Irvine. Currently, I work for the City of LA as an environmental engineer and I am very knowledgeable in Biology, Chemistry, and Math. I enjoy teaching and helping others because it is personally satisfying as well as frustrating to me when things aren't taught well. I have done volunteer tutoring in the past, and I am fully committed to helping my students. I am generally always available for students if they are in emergency need.

I personally believe that the key to learning is understanding, and I feel as if many students who do not perform as well are not "understanding" what they are learning. My key goal when teaching students is to make sure they understand every aspect of what they are doing in order to facilitate "learning." I hope to see students take me on as their tutor, and I would be grateful for the opportunity to teach others. Thank you.

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.

Algebra 1

One of my favorite subjects to teach!

Organic Chemistry

I am a third year developmental and cell biology major at University of California, Irvine. I recently took the MCAT and have extensive knowledge in both general chemistry and organic chemistry. I have previously tutored both subjects privately and have a 3.7 GPA at UCI.
