About Tim

Hello, and thanks for viewing my profile!

I'm a math teacher at Stephenson High School, and teaching is a "second career" for me. Most of my adult professional life was in the corporate world... so I think I bring a good dose of real-world experience to the classroom.

Over the years, I've taught several high school math courses (Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Georgia GPS Math1, Math2) and have consistently helped my students score well on standardized tests. Science involves a lot of math, and as a degreed professional engineer, I have been regularly involved in using science in real-world situations.

In recent years, I've founded a small software company. As such, I'm a proficient computer programmer with Visual Basic, PHP, HTML and javascript, and have a fairly good grasp on MSSQL and MySQL database query languages. My company markets products online, so I have extensive up-close familiarity with e-commerce on the web.

I try to teach from a practical, rather than conceptual point of view. I find that this brings meaning to the theory and often... immediate understanding where there was none before.

Once a student comprehends WHY something is the way it is, memorization becomes a thing of the past and a deeper level of understanding can take root.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I've taught the Georgia math curriculum for grades 9 and 10 for several years... so I'm very familiar with what students ought to know upon entering high school.

Great Tutor — Tim was instrumental in my son doing well this past school year in math. He assessed his learning style. He was able to help us determine areas where my son needed improvement and gave us the tools needed to strengthen his math skills. He went over homework and also CRCT review. He showed him different ways to address math problems. He was consistent with his time and if we had any questions he wa ...
