About Tim

My passion for tutoring is related to my love of learning. I have over 25 years of experience as an electrical engineer. I'm an expert in high level math, physics, and astronomy, and I am an amateur astronomer.

My first experiences as a teacher were as a student assistant in college. I've also taught college students on-line, and tutored teenagers and youths in mathematics as an instructor with a private tutoring center. My specialties are mathematics, electrical engineering, physics, and astronomy.

I am flexible with my time, but I do require a 24-hour cancellation notice. I meet students at suitable locations such as public libraries, but I’m willing to travel to another location that is more convenient for you.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you in your education!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 2

I have bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical engineering. I have worked with students in all levels of math, from arithmetic fundamentals to algebra 2 and beyond.

Astronomy

I am an electrical engineer, and electrical engineers take a lot of physics courses, which are very relevant to astronomy. My course work included special relativity, quantum mechanics, astronomy, and astrophysics. I've been an amateur astronomer all my life. Finally, I worked at NASA when I was in college.

Calculus

One of the most demanding applications of calculus is engineering. I have a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan and a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering from Wayne State University. I have over 25 years of experience as an Electrical Engineer in design, development, test, applications and sales. I also have four years of experience as an electrical engineering professor.

Electrical Engineering

I have a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan and a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering from Wayne State University. I have over 25 years of experience as an Electrical Engineer in design, development, test, applications and sales. I also have four years of experience as an electrical engineering professor.

Geometry

I tutored many geometry students as a Mathnasium instructor for about a year. I am also an electrical engineer, with both bachelor's and master's degrees in the field. Engineering is a field with heavy applications of higher level math, from geometry to trigonometry to calculus and more.

Linear Algebra

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering from Wayne State University and a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan. I have over 25 years of experience as an Electrical Engineer. Linear algebra was the last in the four math class sequence and matrices (an inherent part of linear algebra) have been an occasional tool in my engineering career.

Physics

One of the most important applications of physics is electrical engineering. I have a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan and a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering from Wayne State University. I have over 25 years of experience as an electrical engineer in design, development, test, applications and sales. I also have four years of experience as an electrical engineering professor.

A great help

Tim's a very good teacher and helped me understand concepts I had trouble with in math and physics. He makes sure I know them 100%. Because of him, my grades have gone up.
