About Timothy

I have been tutoring math since 2014, both in schools and as a private tutor, working with students that are in middle school, high school and college. I greatly enjoy supporting and connecting with students to help them understand the math.

I am currently in graduate school, pursuing a Master's degree in Mathematics with a concentration in Actuarial Science. I greatly enjoy the work that math requires, applying concepts and equations to solve problems. I believe this is only part of what makes me a good tutor. My patience, creativity, and my relational attitude help me to engage with students, helping them to feel more comfortable to tackle problems on their own. I try to ask questions that will get students to think and understand concepts on their own, but will reexplain ideas and concepts in different ways if the material is confusing. From my experiences as a tutor, I have learned to be flexible and willing to meet students wherever they are at with math.

In short, I greatly enjoy math and tutoring. I look forward to students being successful and overcoming their own struggles with math. I like to think of myself as a gracious and understanding person. Please reach out to me if you have any questions about anything I can help you with.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Great Tutor!

I highly recommend Tim C. for Math tutoring. He is knowledgeable, patient, and adapts his tutoring style to each of his students. As the ED for a non profit, I engaged Tim's services to help our students. He has been working supporting with both elementary and high school math. Our students feel more confident in their knowledge and approach to Math. Thank you Tim!
