About Tim

I am an engineer with a company in Prescott and a former middle school math teacher with the Humboldt Unified School District. I am constantly working to learn new teaching methods and techniques.

I started tutoring when I was 16 years old helping my younger brother learn algebra. While a student at Embry-Riddle, I continued tutoring in Calculus and Physics. I love seeing the light bulb moments when a student comprehends a subject that they thought would be impossible to grasp.

My teaching method combines auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning to help with comprehension and retention. With five years of experience as a design engineer and fabricator, I constantly break down abstract concepts into concrete examples and analogies.

I look forward to working with you and helping demystify your challenging courses.

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.

Common Core

I am a middle school math teacher working with Common Core/AZCCRS aligned curriculum from Georgia Standards and Engage NY among others. I am well versed in the differences between Common Core and traditional curriculum including the terminology taken from Singapore math that is unfamiliar to Arizona students. I use a blended approach to Common Core concepts, using traditional algorithms as well as visual and kinesthetic methods.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have over four years of experience tutoring elementary students. My education in engineering and business has given me a depth of understanding across the spectrum of academic subjects. I also drive buses for Humboldt Unified School District in Arizona and transport preschool, elementary, and high school students regularly.

Microsoft Windows

I have worked with the Windows Operating System for more than 18 years. I have worked on computers based on many of the major OS releases including Windows 95, 98, XP, Vista, 7, and 8/8.1. I have provided IT support for local businesses as an independent contractor for two years and functioned as the IT specialist at my workplace for four years.

Solidworks

I have seven years of experience designing parts using SolidWorks as the primary CAD tool. I have worked on projects ranging from simple sheet metal brackets to large motion platforms with thousands of individual components. My work has primarily focused on creating models using the sheet metal and weldment tools, then creating production drawings using ASME standards for dimensions and tolerances.
