About Timothy

As an educator with a passion for living, learning, and growing, my goal is to see all students first realize, and then maximize their untapped potential; to accomplish whatever goal it is they set out to achieve. I am eager to help you help yourself excel. We will work hard and you will be challenged.

Do you need grades improved quickly? Do you have a big research paper assigned and need guidance? Is test day/SATs/ACTs looming? Or do you have that dream job interview scheduled and want to present your best possible self? These are just some of the many things we can accomplish together. My only tutoring mission is for you to be successful, so I will always work to create a unique, collaborative space where you (or your child) can feel comfortable learning as an individual.

Currently, I am a professor in the Communication and World Languages Department at GCC, teaching students the importance of effective and appropriate communication and it's direct tie to overall success in our moden world. From creative writing, to public speaking and beyond, together we can tackle any of your educational goals.

Being that I am young and only a few years post graduate school gives me a current, relatable perspective on education I share with the students that I interact with day-to-day. I have been there and done that recently, and know what to expect and what will be expected of you. I am also able to pull from a very difficult life experience, after breaking my neck and being paralyzed a little over six years ago. All of these experiences have culminated, creating a highly unique and effective learning environment that you will undoubtedly find both results-driven...AND fun!

I am flexible with time. And even though I do require an 8hr cancellation notice, we can always work out a way for you to make-up a missed session. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Proofreading

As a student, and now as a college professor, I have been deeply involved in the writing process from beginning to end. From idea conception to proofreading, I have been writing and grading graduate-level research papers and various other essays for many years.

Public Speaking

With a B.S. in Speech Communication and a Master's in Communication Studies, I am uniquely qualified to teach public speaking. I have studied deeply, both the art and the science of rhetoric and oral presentation. I have delivered countless speeches and lecture routinely on public speaking and self-advocacy.

Outstanding and patient tutor

Timothy gave me very helpful tips on how to prepare for my MBA interview. He did quite a lot of research and homework before we had the lesson. It was obvious that Timothy is passionate in teaching and also helping his students achieve their goals.
