About Timothy


Bio

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.

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 tutor

Timothy was a great tutor for my son. He was patient with him every step of the way. He taught him the concepts that my son needed to be successful in his upcoming chemistry test. My son was confident and excelled in his exam. He is looking forward to more sessions with Timothy.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

Timothy is relaxed and can explain concepts so my child "gets it". No high brow terms, just easy to digest teaching. So relieved to have found a match! Thank you Mr. Timothy!

Martina, 1 lesson with Timothy

Very calm and professional tutor.

Tim was a very nice tutor. He worked at my son’s pace and was very helpful and understanding. It was our first time using the app and we had a technical issue and he helped us to correct the issue in our end. The subject was Chemistry.

Ed, 3 lessons with Timothy

Excellent teacher!

Tim really knows how to teach chemistry! My daughter is gaining a much better knowledge of what is actually taking place in a reaction and not just trying to memorize a bunch of formulas with no understanding. Tim is a great tutor and sincerely cares about his students.
