My name is Timothy, and I am a native of Wilmington, North Carolina. I attended Eugene Ashley High School, and then went on to complete a B.A. in English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina. As an undergraduate I also participated in the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Program. During this time, I worked in both the Durham County Public Schools and Chapel Hill/Carrboro City Schools as a tutor and mentor. Following my graduation from UNC, I completed an Ed.M. in Teaching and Curriculum at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. During this time I also earned my teaching licensure, and student taught for a year at a public high school in Boston.

I am fascinated by the human potential for growth, and I am extremely passionate about working with people with diverse learning needs. My formal academic training is in the humanities, the teaching of writing, the development of culturally relevant teaching material, and maximizing student engagement in the learning process. My experience largely consists of working with diverse learners, with a variety of needs. I feel that I am relatively well-rounded academically, and have had tremendous success with SAT preparation and tutoring in all subject areas.

I am personally attracted to tutoring because I acknowledge that the learning process is reciprocal. I am genuinely thankful for all opportunities to work with others in educational settings because I feel that I have a great deal to learn from them as well. I feel that this particular pedagogical belief of my own not only keeps me invigorated in regards to the work, but this acknowledgment also affirms the strengths that the learner is bringing to this relationship. In my teaching and tutoring, I always start with identifying students’ strengths and actively work on using these strengths as a means to both empower the learner and also to help them overcome their weaknesses in order to allow them to develop more fully academically.
