About Tim


Bio

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, and I am an active volunteer in my son's advanced math class. I have worked as a tutor for children of all ages and abilities, as well as adults, both one-on-one and in groups. My goal as a tutor is not just to help you with rote learning, but to help you understand the underlying logic of the correct answer so you can succeed when a question or subject takes you by surprise. And most importantly, to help you gain confidence in your own...

And most importantly, to help you gain confidence in your own ability!

While my favorite subject is math, I also love writing, reading, and computing and would be happy to help anyone with any of the active subjects in my profile. I look forward to working with you!

C++

I have a bachelor's degree in computer science, and we studied mostly C++. I also worked for over nine years at a software company that specialized in C++ libraries for application development. So, although I was not a software developer for some of those years, I have a strong understanding of the language and can help people with any basic to moderately difficult programming tasks.

General Computer

Computers are anything but intuitive, unless you understand some of the inner workings of the machine. I can help you understand how, and more importantly "why", they do what they do, to make general tasks with a computer simpler and more enjoyable.
SQL,

SQL is a complex language that can take years and years to learn. However, I can help you understand basic queries so you can be productive quickly.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am very comfortable with algebra at all levels, and really love helping kids and adults understand how to set up equations and find the value of the unknown variable. I have tutored kids in middle and high school, and at the junior college level for several years (though I'm new to WyzAnt), and help my own kids in this subject. I look forward to meeting you or your child, and helping you/him/her succeed with this subject!

While geometry is easy and fun, it can be difficult to learn from people with certain styles of teaching. Whether you are learning elementary or college-level geometry, I try to adapt my explanations to you and your own particular learning style, so that you really "get it".
Prealgebra,

Setting up equations can be difficult at first, so lots of kids need some help in this area. I can help make this subject understandable and fun! And I look forward to making your child a success.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Calculus can be fun, if you have a strong foundation in algebra and precalculus concepts. I can help you understand these concepts fully, so that taking the next step will also be a breeze.
