About Tim


Bio

I am a high school math teacher at a prestigious charter school in New Haven.

My method is constructive - I assess the degree of comfort that a student has with the material first, then build on that understanding progressively. I have also helped many of my students with study skills and problem solving skills, in addition to explaining mathematics content.

I have added several subjects beyond mathematics to my catalog, and I am happy to clarify my mastery of the material if you have any...

Great Tutor

Tim was great. The pace of the session was perfect. He allowed my son to work on the problems independently and guided him where needed. He was very easy to schedule and communicate with. Highly recommend!

Briar, 1 lesson with Tim

Extremely Helpful

I contacted Tim when I realized that my son needed additional support preparing for his exam. He was behind on time and the material was a review over the entire academic year. Tim responded very quickly to my time frame and worked to accommodate our needs with his schedule. After the session, I requested to schedule him again for a second session within the same week.

Debbie, 10 lessons with Tim

Excellent tutor

Tim is an excellent teacher. He was patient and met my needs at the speed I like to learn. I highly recommend him especially for professionals that need help specific to their industry.

Keith, 1 lesson with Tim

Calm and polite

Tim had a very calm and polite demeanor when meeting me for the first time. He is very knowledgeable in the subject of algebra, and shows an interest in wanting to help me improve through his desire to ask questions and his ability to develop possible teaching strategies. He is someone whom I feel that I can be comfortable around and will help me improve on my weaknesses in math. I look forward to future meetings with Tim :) (-From Michael)

Edilia, 28 lessons with Tim

Last minute SAT prep

We retained Tim to do some last minute SAT prep for our son the night before SATs. Tim jumped in and made it a very comfortable and enjoyable prep time the night before a very stressful test. Our son felt that Tim connected with him and where he was struggling and made sense out of his confusion. We highly recommend Tim.

Kimberly, 1 lesson with Tim

Knowledgeable and patient, honed in on salient skills

Tim did a great job figuring out what my son needed to work on to start catching up and they accomplished so much in just one session. We so appreciate his help!

My son was very pleased with tutoring by Tim. We will continue to work with him particularly before exams and to improve the skills.I highly recommend him.He was patient and knew how to achieve needed goals!

Ed, 6 lessons with Tim

Excellent session!

Tim really helped my son understand the material and prepare for his quiz tomorrow in Algebra 2. My son's confidence improved greatly in less than an hour and he actually enjoyed the session. We look forward to working with Tim again in the future as needed and would definitely recommend him. Thanks Tim!
