My name is Tim. I am available to teach English, writing and several other subjects. I would prefer to teach via Skype, but I am available to meet in person as well.

I have a Teaching English as a Foreign Language ("TEFL") Certificate from i-to-i TEFL. I also have the CELTA certificate from Cambridge.

I have an MBA from DePaul University, a JD from the University of Minnesota Law School, a Paralegal Diploma in Administrative and Public Law from The Philadelphia Institute, an MA in Theology from the University of Notre Dame and an AB in Religious Studies and Philosophy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I taught Legal English and Business English at the Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) University in Yerevan, Armenia in the Spring of 2013. I also helped a surgeon and a lawyer in Armenia improve their English via Skype in 2012.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you for your consideration.

I have a bachelor's degree in religious studies and philosophy (with high distinction in religious studies) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I have a master's degree in theology from the University of Notre Dame. I took several Bible courses at both universities.


I have a Master in Business Administration from DePaul University. I also have a Juris Doctor (law degree) from the University of Minnesota Law School. I have experience in accounts payable and accounts receivable. I have experience setting up corporations and limited liability companies as an attorney. I also have experience drafting and reviewing many types of business contracts (e.g., commercial real estate leases, employment contracts, non-compete agreements, etc...). I even helped a Chinese business set up its subsidiary here and obtain an L-1A visa for one of its managers.


Teaching English as foreign language to legal, business and medical professionals


I have a bachelor's degree in religious studies and philosophy. I took logic, symbolic logic and advanced symbolic logic as an undergraduate. I earned A's in all three classes. I also have several advanced degrees, including a law degree.

I would like to tutor students taking logic and perhaps advanced symbolic logic classes. Basically, I would like to help people recognize fallacies of logic.
