Scientist, educator, gamer, dreamer. I have worked as a member of technical staff at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and as an ecologist at the National Park Service. Much as I enjoyed the art of science, I found that I enjoyed teaching even more. Science, math, nature, and life are intimately connected. When I help others to find joy in science and math, I know I am helping to create a better world - stronger, safer, and happier.

Research shows that relevance and engagement are important ingredients in learning. Kindness and common sense say that learning ought to be rewarding. This, then, is my twofold quest: to help others to learn science and math, and to help people learn to find joy and satisfaction in math and science. Hit me up, and I'd be happy to help you as well.

My years of knowledge and experience in using math - to make atoms dance in a physics lab, to discover patterns of change in the landscapes of our National parks, to create beautiful fractal images, and more - this is what makes me an excellent math tutor. Whether you need help with the basics of arithmetic, the adventures of algebra, the catacombs of calculus, in a broader search for meaning in math - I am happy to be of service.

Just give me a ping. I'm always happy to talk.

I have a B.A. in Physics, M.S. in Ecology, and four years of experience as a quantitative ecologist with the National Park Service. Much as I enjoyed being a biologist, I found that the very best days on that job were the ones where I was a teacher - designing and delivering science outreach programs. So I switched gears. Now, as an independent teacher and curriculum designer, I work full time doing what I love - promoting the understanding and appreciation of science.

I love sunshine, puzzles, and trees. Putting those together led me to earn an M.S. in plant ecology, and then to a job as a quantitative ecologist with the National Park Service. At the NPS, I trained and led vegetation field crews in the collection of community-level botanical data, and then built mathematical models to seek out patterns in those data. As one of just two mathematical biologists in the science arm of the park, I was the go-to person for data and analysis questions.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Tim has a clear and calm tone of voice that makes it easy to follow. We tried a few tutors, but my son enjoyed working with Tim the most. Tim has a good understanding of the subject matter and is very patient, ensuring my son understood the concepts before proceeding to the next exercises. After explaining a concept I could hear Tim ask my son to show him that he understood both verbally and on paper.
