My teaching experience spans 32 years and I am currently ranked in the top five in the country on Wyzant's platform. As a tutor, my goal is to turn students' weaknesses into strengths and enable them make the changes they need to achieve desired objectives in exam prep and in school coursework. I believe in guiding rather than instructing and by leading students on a path of discovery to learn, retain and apply, in order to avoid making the same mistakes twice. Students are responsible for their own learning which means that hard graft is required to acquire a vocabulary base substantive to pass SAT and to improve their own writing. Secondly, reading comprehension strategies must be applied effectively and consistently to eliminate errors and realize one's full potential. Thirdly, accepting the importance of developing cohesion, coherence, and a varied sentence structure in essay writing, as well as building a structure that allows ideas to be connected and cogently expressed. So there are no shortcuts to success, but the rewards are many.
I help students of all ages and professionals with their writing by suggesting how to improve the impact of their material as well as ways of improving how they express their ideas. Writing is a skill that needs constant practice and a thorough process of refining and reworking. I guide students through brainstorming, note taking, freewriting, researching, planning, drafting, revising, polishing, and proofreading. In addition, I also assist by proofreading completed drafts, providing feedback on work in process, and showing them how sophisticated vocabulary can improve the impact of their writing. I specifically ask to see a sample of the student's writing to locate any problems and assess their current level of skills. I would then concentrate on building clarity of expression, the use of a sophisticated level of vocabulary, cohesion and coherence, and a sense of structure.
I look forward to working with you all.
Great SAT READING tutor - highly recommend
My son was lagging with SAT Reading score. I looked up everywhere to find a good tutor and glad we found Tim. Tim taught my son SAT Reading and in two months of 1-1 classes, my son's confidence level in Reading increased by leaps and bounds. I would highly recommend Tim for SAT Reading.Suresh, 11 lessons with Tim

After 1 year of pandemic, I saw that my son needed some help on ELA when his grade started lowing gradually at school. Luckily we found Mr. Tim. He helped my son more confident in ELA, and his score went up again after Mr. Tim’s help. Finally, he got 97 percentile in the End of Grade exam. It’s beyond our expectation! We are so happy about that! Thanks a lot!Tram, 14 lessons with Tim
He is a good writing teacher
My son is 9th grader and likes Tim's lesson. He gives helpful tips on my son's writings. It takes a lot of time for my son to write a short essay usually because he does not have many ideas. Tim helps my son organize his ideas.Hyun, 10 lessons with Tim
Tim is knowledgeable in his area and does not waste a minute during session. The only reason I rate 1 star less is due to his rude behavior during sessions and sounds grumpy sometimes when asked questionsSameer, 7 lessons with Tim
Big-time improvement in the SAT Reading section with Tim's help!
Our daughter was struggling with the reading section on the SAT. And yeah, questions can be very tricky. Tim was a fantastic tutor that helped her improve, big time. The first time she took the SAT, our daughter got 14 questions wrong. The second time? Only 3 wrong. That made a huge difference and helped her SAT score go from 1,400 to 1,530. Tim was very patient, explained the concepts and types of reading questions very well, and helped my daughter manage her time better. Thanks, Tim!Rodrigo, 15 lessons with Tim
Great choice if you need your kid to be well prepared for college
I have nothing but good words to say about Tim as a tutor. Tim helped our son a lot to improve his English language and enter college. When we began our classes and didn’t know what to start with, Tim helped us to choose textbooks befitting our son's knowledge and needs. What I liked about Tim is that he was always very responsive and accommodative to my son's learning schedule. There were no problems rescheduling our classes and Tim never charged for the missed ones either. Tim was always punctual and kept my son busy with tasks at the classes. Which eventually gave a positive result at the tests. Great job!Maryia, 125 lessons with Tim
