About Tim

I have been a licensed psychotherapist for over 22 years; I specialize in working with children and adolescents and have worked with students in a number of nonpublic school settings. I am skilled in helping children who experience attentional challenges with a strengths-based behavioral approach. I help families defocus from unhelpful expectations or behaviors and achieve a better understanding of how the learner perceives and solves problems. This helps in tailoring the learning experience to fit the strengths of the child as contrasted with forcing children to fit mismatched learning models.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a licensed psychotherapist (>22 years); I specialize in working with children and adolescents and have worked with students in a number of nonpublic school settings. I am skilled in helping children who experience attentional challenges with a strengths-based behavioral approach. I am most effective in training reading comprehension.

Sociology

I am a licensed psychotherapist and doctor of psychology. I have worked in community mental health and social systems of care for over 20 years and I have extensive experience in social case management. A key component of my graduate education has involved social psychology.

Special Needs

I am a licensed psychotherapist. I am skilled in helping children who experience attentional and emotional challenges with a strengths-based behavioral approach. I help families defocus from unhelpful expectations or behaviors and achieve a better understanding of how the learner perceives and solves problems. This helps in tailoring the learning experience to fit the strengths of the child as contrasted with forcing children to fit mismatched learning models.

Study Skills

As a lifelong student and doctor of psychology I have had to develop a good understanding of organizing an approach to study and research. I also understand how habits and motives can be shaped to facilitate learning and retention processes. I learned early on in my work with children that study approaches must be tailored to fit the particular needs and strengths of each child.

Caring and Descriptive! — Tim really cares about your success with the subject and really learning it step by step. He explained why things were right and also why they were wrong. I didn't want to miss anything he said, and was sure to write down everything he said because he was very knowledgeable. He's patient and doesn't get frustrated. Great tutor! ...
