I rank among the top 2% of the 17,575 active tutors in 2019.

I am currently a tenured mathematics professor at a local university, and I have been at this institution since 2001. I have an undergraduate degree in mathematics and a Ph.D. in mathematics. I have been been tutoring mathematics in many situations since I was in high school. I have experience teaching and tutoring mathematics across the curriculum at the college/university, high school, and developmental levels. I also have several years of experience serving as a reader for Advanced Placement Calculus exams. I also have experience mentoring undergraduate research students in mathematics primarily in mathematical biology and low dimensional topology.

I tutor in all areas of mathematics and will gladly work to help students succeed in their mathematics studies and on their AP, ACT and SAT exams. I am eager to help my students succeed with their course work and develop study habits, strategies, and confidence that will help them beyond their current course content. Throughout my teaching and tutoring experience, I have worked with high school, college/university, and adult students. For students needing tutoring help with a summer mathematics course, remediation, or just getting ready or ahead for the next school year, I am accepting new students.

I am able to tutor across the high school and college/university curricula, including algebra (all levels), geometry, precalculus, calculus (all parts of calculus), business calculus, calculus for the life sciences, trigonometry, ACT and SAT mathematics, discrete mathematics, linear algebra, abstract algebra, differential equations, real and complex analysis, modern geometry, differential geometry, topology, graph theory and combinatorics, probability and statistics, and mathematics content for elementary teachers. This includes course support and exam preparation for advanced placem

Excellent Tutor

My 14 year old son is taking his 1st College Algebra class, on-line. Timothy worked with him prior to his final exam and was very helpful and patient. He answered all of my son's questions and worked through all the practice problems my son brought to the session. They on-line platform worked very effectively as well.

Danna, 1 lesson with Timothy

Precalculus

He is very professional and approachable he took the time to understand my son struggles and helped him My son was more confident after just one lesson Thank you

Nancy, 2 lessons with Timothy

Helpful and on target

Ran a lesson on using the TI 84 Plus C graphic calculator for my son taking trigonometry. Adept at using the Wyzant technology to present problems and help solve them in real time.

Josh, 1 lesson with Timothy

Wonderful tutor!

Tim is a very patient, understanding, and professional tutor. I would recommend him for anyone hoping to get a comprehensive and complete understanding as well as a good class grade on calculus and/or statistics.

Irene, 63 lessons with Timothy

Knowledgable and Extremely Helpful

I am a Business Management Major, helped me review for my final in Business Calculus, knew everything extremely well and was a great tutor, highly recommend for anyone who needs help with any type of Calculus

Lessons during stay at home

Between my daughter’s teacher going out on maternity leave and now students sheltering at home, it was a very difficult transition period for which we’re all grateful for Timothy’s tutelage. She’s starting to earn As on her homework assignments for the first time and getting more confident. She has a ways to go still, so we’re glad to have Timothy’s help for the remainder of this year and upcoming years

Marlene, 12 lessons with Timothy

Very patient

He did a great job of explaining to me how to go about my proofs. He helped me to understand how to think more straightforwardly and to understand the direction I needed to go.

Krista, 1 lesson with Timothy

1st lesson

I’m seeing hope in my daughter’s eyes for the first time with math. I wish I had done this sooner.

Marlene, 12 lessons with Timothy

Very helpful

Timothy helped prepare for upcoming pre-calc test with examples and how to think through the problems. Would absolutely hire him again.
