Bio

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 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.

Gina , 10 lessons with Timothy

Helpful

Timothy was very nice and patient. He was very good at ecplaining the information that I was unsure about. He was helpful.

Kevin, 2 lessons with Timothy

Positive and productive tutor

Timothy worked with my son - a high school junior - on a variety of math concepts to prepare for the coming school year, as well as the ACT. The two got a lot done and my son was very encouraged and positive regarding their session. We plan to continue working with Timothy far into the future!

Heather, 28 lessons with Timothy

Patient and willing to help

Tim is so patient and positive during his tutoring. I'm pretty much math illiterate and he sits with you smiling every step of the way. Couldn't have lucked out with a better math tutor!

Terry, 7 lessons with Timothy

Great tutor

Tim is great with the kids and very patient. He helps them understand the material so that they feel confident in their ability to complete the work. The kids also like Tim's personality.

Lara, 6 lessons with Timothy

Was very helpful and did great with every question I asked!

He taught me how to fully understand domain and range. Also helped me understand logirithims better. He was very helpful and patient with what I was doing and was asking.

Jeff, 4 lessons with Timothy

Great tutor!

Timothy is very knowledgeable and great at explaining the concepts and making them easier to understand. He didn't waste any time and immediately began teaching and explaining the material.

Celia, 10 lessons with Timothy

Patient and talented tutor

Tim is doing a great job with my teenage daughter helping to explain logorithms and other math. He is patient; explains things thoroughly; and has a low-key personality that fits well with a student experiencing frustration or confusion with math. He is also punctual and pleasant to have in the house. A great fit for students looking for math enhancement!

First Tutor, EVER!!!

My daughter was very happy at the end of her 90 minute session. She said "He helped me to make sense of it!" I've never had to hire a tutor before...Mommy has done it all! However, I don't do Math! Enter Timothy. ..TIMOTHY DOES MATH and my daughter is happy and looking forward to her session with Timothy tomorrow. As I looked on at my daughter from a distance, her body language was relaxed and her shoulders weren't uptight as they usually are when she's frustrated and upset dealing with subject matter she doesn't understand. I even heard her sigh happily as to indicate she got the concept and how it related to other math problems. Timothy most definitely was calm and patient with my daughter. As a teacher, one of the greatest things a teacher can do when introducing and/or reviewing content is to help the students ask questions that will lead to comprehension and mastery of the content. Timothy did that tonight. As he worked with my daughter, he helped her with the explanations so she could ask questions and find the answers as she solved the problems. I'm most definitely satisfied with the quality of instruction and support he provided to my daughter, Anita. When we arrived, he was ready with his materials he needed to teach and work with Anita. There was less than 2 minutes spent on introductions and getting her materials ready. Timothy took the necessary time to listen to my concerns with Anita's math skills, my concerns for her to master then content as well as this being a first for us. And most importantly, Timothy was able to comprehend the goal for my daughter and how the tutoring support would be crucial to Anita so she could reach her goal. I was so relieved that our experience with OUR FIRST TUTOR, EVER, has been an absolutely great and positive experience for both my daughter and me...Thanks, Timothy!
