About Tim

Hello, My name is Tim and I have worked with young people for over 25 years. I have employed them in small businesses I have owned, I have taught them in primary and secondary school, and I presently supervise and mentor them as a Personal Manager at UCSB. I have also been a Teachers Assistant in a Freshman Orientation class at UCSB for several years. I enjoy working with young people and helping them navigate their way through their early academic years. In all my time working with young people I have found that they constantly have questions and it is our responsibility as adults to help them find the answers, or a least work with them to find some solutions. This applies to academics and and life in general.

After working with our youth I have a good understanding of what your fears, anxieties and questions are. I have an easygoing personality that works well with young people and honestly I just have the ability to relate to you. I have a strong background in writing and have graded university level midterm and final papers for the UC writing requirements. Working with young people, I am able to understand the challenges they are experiencing academically and can help them make the adjustments they require to succeed. I hope to meet some of you soon and address some of your challenges head on.
