Students who work with me improve their standardized test scores. Standardized tests have predictable types of problems, which I will help you anticipate. Students also benefit when I teach them particular test-taking strategies. Preparing in advance will help you quickly prioritize to use your time more efficiently, yielding more time for the toughest questions. Also, since many problems are multiple-choice I will help you understand how to quickly rule out wrong answers to improve your chances of correctly answering the same toughest questions. I will help you maximize your standardized test score.

Tim was awesome!!

Tim really helped me understand the material I am looking forward to more lessons from him.Microwave engineering is a tough subject but he is able to break it down so I fully understand doing plots and the theory of the subject matter.

Jose, 4 lessons with Tim

Great teacher

Helped me understand the fundamentals of what I was doing in a very patient and understanding manner. He made it very simple for me

Sri, 2 lessons with Tim

Incredibly helpful

Tim helped me with a very peculiar project and was excellent!!!! .

Jeremy, 2 lessons with Tim

Amazing Tutor!

Really helped me understand phase shifts with op amps. Explanations were really informative and he made sure I understood the topic every step of the way! Definitely would recommend him!

Zoey, 1 lesson with Tim

Excellent Tutor

Tim did a great job helping me better understand a Digital Technology project I had for a college class. It involved transitioning a logic diagram onto a breadboard. I plan to use him again and highly recommend him!

Angela, 3 lessons with Tim

Excellent teacher

Tim has been teaching my son geometry and physics this year as part of his homeschooling program. He is extremely reliable and probably the most knowledgeable tutor we have used. My son enjoys his sessions with Tim and feels that his time is being well spent and that he is getting a lot out of the sessions. I would highly recommend Tim’s services to anyone looking for help with math or physics.

Cindy, 136 lessons with Tim

Tim gave my daughter confidence in SAT/ACT math

My daughter isn't a terrible math student, but she tends to make silly errors on standardized tests. Some of the more advanced material on the tests she hadn't covered in school yet (invisible numbers, permutations, etc.). By working with Tim for the last several months, she has gained a lot of confidence in terms of her math skills. She recognizes many of the problems on the standardized tests and knows the approaches to solve them. Thanks, Tim!

Tim K. is a great tutor

Tim was helping with school work for my child. I really appreciate that. I am very excited to work with him more in the future. Thank you so much Tim for being such a good tutor.

Juhi, 4 lessons with Tim
