About Timothy

I have 10 years experience tutoring and the number one thing I have learned in that time is that knowing the material is only half of the job. The more important half is being able to communicate that information to different students with different learning style. My grades were never very good in high school and in college I started out taking all music classes. It wasn't until about my fourth year in college that I turned everything around. I went from prealgebra to multi variable calculus in less than 3 years and then transferred to Cal State Long Beach to get my degree with a major in Pure Mathematics. My background allows me relate to students who are struggling and frustrated with math. I never had a natural gift for understanding the subject like some people do but I believe this makes me a much better teacher.

If you contact me please understand this. Getting tutored in a subject is only a step in the right direction. It is not a solution to the problem. You must commit to putting in study time outside of the tutoring session. Hiring a tutor and not studying on your own would be like hiring a personal trainer and only working out during the session. You are unlikely to see the results you hope for. I will teach you concepts and I will guide you in making a study plan. Your job as my student is to ask all the questions you have and follow the study plan we agree to. Final review sessions will be a little different than regular session because of the urgency and limitation of time.

I am available for final review sessions, standardized test prep, previewing next semesters material or summer school tutoring.

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.

ACT Math

I have been teaching the ACT math section for the last 8 years. I have access to over 30 practice tests. In addition to teaching topics from the test, I also teach strategy in taking the test such as how to guess when you don't know how to do a problem and when and how to use your calculator.

Calculus

I teach calculus at an after school tutoring center in La Palma. I also have many private students that I tutor in calculus. I have access to text books, worksheets and other resources.

Precalculus

I have tutored Pre-Calculus for the last 10 years and I teach AP Calculus at an after school tutoring center. I have access to text books, worksheets and other resources to help you preview or a course or raise your grade in a class you're currently taking.

SAT Math

I have been teaching SAT classes for the last 10 years. I have access to several new sat tests. My class is a mixture of teaching math and teaching test taking skills like when to use your calculator or how to eliminate wrong answer choices.
