About Timothy


Bio

I have had the good fortune of tutoring several high school and college students in math, science, and economics over the years. When I first start tutoring someone, s/he is often frustrated and discouraged, so my first objective is to get his/her confidence back. That is even more important than the subject matter, as important as that is. Once the person's confidence returns, then s/he will be more receptive to what I am teaching, and significant improvement will follow.

I have had the good fortune of tutoring several high school and college students in math, science, and economics over the years. When I first start tutoring someone, s/he is often frustrated and discouraged, so my first objective is to get his/her confidence back. That is even more important than the subject matter, as important as that is. Once the person's confidence returns, then s/he will be more receptive to what I am teaching, and significant improvement will follow.

One person came to me a few years back having flunked two chemistry exams. I was able to work with this person and, through his dedication, he improved significantly. He eventually graduated with a degree in pharmacy. Another person I taught failed the first chemistry quiz of the semester (2 out of 10). I worked with this person, and he went on to do very well in the course.

The approach that I take is that, as long as students don't give up on themselves, I won't give up on them either, regardless of what their grades are. I know someone who got a C- in the first chemistry course that he took, then got an A in the second one. The same can happen for other struggling students as well.

Patient and Knowledgeable

He helped my son by simplifying hard concepts in AP Physics, and my son is very comfortable having such a patient tutor.

Kenia, 87 lessons with Timothy

Patient and positive.

My daughter found the session very helpful, Timothy was very positive. My daughter thought that more time the next time would be better. She went to tutors at school and didn't find it helpful. Timothy was able to give her the help she needed and thus did well on the next test.

Rosanne, 5 lessons with Timothy

Great tutor, highly recommend!

Timothy is a great tutor. My son loves him. Very patient and a joy to have around! Always on time. responds to emails, always willing to help. I am planning to keep him around for my boys. Thank you!

Suhad, 6 lessons with Timothy

Has the patience of Job

Tim is quite relaxed and knows how to instill both calm and confidence in the most panicked of students. Tim has a good command on math and has the ability to explain math in little people terms.
