About Timothy

I am a retired teacher from Brewster Academy and have tutoring experience in the sciences, primarily chemistry and biology from the high school level to the first two years of college. I have tutored three years at the College of Coastal Georgia and three at the Community College of Denver. My wife and I currently live in the Denver area of Colorado.

My strength as a tutor is that I am able to provide a straightforward, understandable approach to problem solving in science as well as math. I have several handout study guides that detail manageable steps in dealing with these challenging concepts. My approach is always positive and supportive and I strive to make students feel comfortable and acknowledged.

Students and their parents will not be invoiced if they are not completely satisfied with my tutoring. I monitor my e-mail every day so I will be able to respond quickly to any inquiry. I am happy to reschedule any tutoring time with a 24 hour notice.

I am willing to travel to a student's home, but in order to ensure a quiet environment I suggest meeting at a local library or available space at a school.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you master the challenging academic concepts you are facing.

Thank you,
Tim R.

Knowledgeable and patient

Timothy has really helped my son understand and grasp the concepts of chemistry. He explains it in a way that he understands and can put into practice on his homework and in class. He is very patient with my son and my son is becoming more confident.
