Very knowledgeable

Tim is working with my son in AP Physics and Calculus. Probably the best tutor he has ever used. He is able to relate the material to my son and definitely goes the extra mile.

Karen, 16 lessons with Tim

Breaks down the subject very well

My daughter has expressed that Tim is clear and thorough. She now understands concepts of physics that she did not understand from her classroom instruction. I was very impressed that Tim asks ahead of the lesson, what material is being covered, so that he is prepared for the lesson.

Ann, 13 lessons with Tim

First time student

Tim made my son's first visit very comfortable. He is very knowledgeable and he took his time learning my son's strengths and weaknesses before beginning his lesson. Looking forward to his next lesson.

Rick, 5 lessons with Tim

Excellent teacher

Tim was very helpful in the last minute session I scheduled for the semester exams. He covered a wide range of topics and promptly followed up with emails on some areas which needed more reinforcement.

Sabu, 1 lesson with Tim

Excellent at conveying difficult information.

Tim has been tutoring my son in calculus. Tim's knowledge and patience are helping my son to enjoy and understand a difficult subject! We highly recommend Tim as he is very professional and well-prepared.

Katie, 20 lessons with Tim

Excellent physics tutor!

Tim is always well prepared- checking what area of physics is being covered in class before the lesson. He makes the most of the lesson time and ensures the tutoring session interesting and relevant. His wide knowledge adds to his teaching and ability to use examples to illustrate topics.

Kathy, 23 lessons with Tim

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My daughter had 2 sessions with Tim for AP physics . Very good . Knowledgeable. And flexible with timing . Experienced . Thank you Tim . Will have more sessions

Kamal, 2 lessons with Tim

Great Tutor

Tim is not only very knowledgeable, but he is also very concise and detailed in explaining problem solving as well as theory and concepts. I would recommend him to anyone studying electronics.

Richard, 1 lesson with Tim

Very happy and satisfied!

Tim showed lot of patience with our son and it was easy to see his experience in teaching. He helped our son get ready for his math quiz. We highly recommend Tim's services.
