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.

Can't say enough good things

Tim has come on board to help my son in 6th grade with algebra and to prepare for comps. The day after their first session my son's algebra teacher emailed me to tell me that he noticed a huge positive change and a light bulb had turned on. He understood new complex topics that had been challenging him just after one session. We feel confident now heading into comps. Tim has been so accommodating, an all around nice guy. Thank you Tim!

Great Math Tutor

Tim was great. Tim helped my daughter catch up 6 weeks of math due to our relocation to Az. Before sitting down with Tim there were only a couple of problems she could do after 2 hrs with Tim she had completed the sections problems and finished her test with confidence. Thank you again Tim you're the best!

Knowledgable, friendly with a great personality!

We really appreciate Tim's help. He answered questions our family had and I believe he gave our grandson confidence to do his work.

Sheila, 5 lessons with Tim

Very responsive and determined!

Tim is tutoring my ASD daughter, helping her with college-level engineering and math courses. Their first meeting went quite well and my daughter was happy with the progress, even though they struggled through a computer programming issue. She spoke to her professor the next day and they were on the right track, so her confidence went way up. Thanks, Tim!
