About Timothy


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 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.

Very helpful and nice.

I was going to meet with several tutors but I was lucky to meet with Timothy first, and I won't be needing to look at any others. He was on time, patient, knowledgeable and able to help me get through my work and solve problems that I had difficulty with. I have already scheduled another session.

Kevin, 11 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, 45 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

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.
