About Timothy

I'm a twice published writer, working on more, with many years of experience in prose and ficiton writing as well as editing and proofreading all kinds of work. I've taught literature classes as well as tutored students both in person and online in basic English grammar and usage. I have an MFA in Creative Writing and a BS in History and can tutor on a wide variety of subjects, including literature, history, art, popular science, politics and psychology. I enjoy tutoring because it gives me a chance to impart some of my knowledge to others, learn about other people, and quite often, be exposed to writing, music and art that I wasn't familiar with.

I have taught, both online and in person, students new to the English language and I'm happy to work with students at whatever level of expertise. I have taught conversational English to new speakers of the language and enjoy finding creative ways to address some of the difficulities new speakers encounter, including the use of music, visual aids, and writing exercises.

I believe my main strength as a tutor is in my commitment to providing learning tailored for the individual student. Although I work with lesson plans, I'm always willing to modify them. I am a results oriented teacher and am flexible in terms of methodology.

Looking forward to tutoring, editing, proofreading or discussing great books!
