About Timothy


Bio

I can quickly ascertain and help students’ overcome weaknesses so they can swiftly achieve higher proficiency, retain deeper understanding, and approach problem resolution with insightful alternatives.

I retired from the Untied States Air Force and have more than 43 years of project management and system acquisition experience.

I tutored in-the-class middle and high school math for six years, and have been tutoring in the home and on-line for fifteen years as well as at a local community...

I tutored in-the-class middle and high school math for six years, and have been tutoring in the home and on-line for fifteen years as well as at a local community college for 5 years.

Especially satisfying is discovering the right kind of prodding students need to master concepts on their own. I am more interested in transferring know-how to students than just preparing them to pass tests.

great!

It's been so helpful to learn calc from someone who is well-versed and patient. Will definitely continue to use his services!

Adam, 5 lessons with Timothy

Great tutor

Tim has been great for my son. I have seen a great improvement in his confidence as he is getting a much better understanding of the material. This has been extremely important as this is my son's Junior year of HS and the majority of his school days have been at-home learning. Looking forward to seeing him continue to work with Tim to keep his confidence and understanding of Algebra 2 up. Thanks, Tim.

Peter, 3 lessons with Timothy

Great Math Tutor

Very clear and understanding, easily helps with any math! Also, very nice! I liked how much he listened and was quick to get what my son was saying as well. Very flexible too. We will definitely use him again when needed.

Raphael, 1 lesson with Timothy

On point!

Tim did a fantastic job of identifying the gaps in learning and providing targeted education to bridge those gaps. Strong recommendation for others looking for additional support with math. Thank you very much!

Adam, 5 lessons with Timothy

Helpful and passionate

Patiently explained topics. 1 star reduced as takes a little while but foundations are very good. Overall my son sincerely appreciated the assistance. Does not just solve problems but explains the why and the what and spends some time on the how.

Baivab, 1 lesson with Timothy

Patient and accommodating

Timothy was super responsive to messages, very accommodating with scheduling and a big help with the pre calculus materials. We would highly recommend him. good at explaining the process and helped my child prepare for similar problems on the topics they reviewed

Mylene, 1 lesson with Timothy

Great teacher!

Timothy really helped me how to approach to integrations that require trigonometric substitution using the trig identities and the triangle to solve the problems. He is very patient and has a great didactic.

Karla, 1 lesson with Timothy

My son likes him so much!

My son takes Mr. Timothy’s lessons more than a month 2 times a week and my son is so far doing very good with him. He said his teacher explains very well and he is able to understand much better than before. Most of all, this is very surprising that he is not distinctive in the lesson at all. That amaze me so much and very glad for it. Thank you so much for Mr. Timothy!!!

Hj, 13 lessons with Timothy

He gets my son's attention and very patient!!!

I am very happy with lessons with Mr Timothy so far.. My son had hard time to sit around while online lessons with previous tutors, but with Timothy he sits down and less distracted while lesson going on. Mr. Timothy goes the lesson very throughly and review the problems well, and make sure my son understands too. He is always on time and if there is any change then let us know in time. We are very happy to have him. Thank you so much!!!!
