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 middle school, high school, college/university, and adult 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 placement (AP) Calculus AB, Calculus BC, and Statistics. I am currently writing a calculus for the life sciences textbook. For computational technology, I can help students with graphing calculators, computer algebra systems, and dynamic geometry software.

My experience with Timothy.

At the beginning of my school year, I struggled with AP Statistics and I had a hard time understanding the material. When Timothy became my tutor all of that changed. We met once a week for an hour and when I would walk into class the next day, I wasn't concerned that I would fall behind. Overall, Timothy has been a great tutor for me this academic year! I have never felt more confident in the class and in my ability to take the AP exam. My grade in Statistics has significantly increased and I will be sure to schedule another session with Timothy in my future math classes.

Kristina, 24 lessons with Timothy

Awesome Calculus tutor.

Mr. Tim helped my kid understand and solve a very complicated calculus problem. He is very patient and explains every step of the problem in great detail. He is a great tutor.

Subramaniam, 39 lessons with Timothy

Very knowledgeable and a great teacher!!!

Timothy is a great teacher and always there for my daughter when she had issues understanding a statistics concept. He is very knowledgeable and explains the concept in detail and makes it easy to understand!! My daughter was nervous about AP Stat but started acing it with Timothy’s help! Thank you so much Mr. Timothy!!!!

Abhi, 5 lessons with Timothy

Friendly, knowledgeable tutor

Timothy C. has taught me far more about Algebra than my actual professor. He is friendly and patient and very easy to work with. I really enjoyed our tutoring sessions and look forward to working with Timothy again for my next math class.

Cynthia, 13 lessons with Timothy

Excellent Tutor

Timothy has worked 1:1 with my son to tutor him in Honors Pre-Calculus. Timothy's explanations are clear and helpful and he has helped to establish the foundational knowledge and confidence for my son to improve his grade in the class.

Sessions are scheduled for an hour unless arranged otherwise ahead of time.

Great teacher, very knowledgable and patient

Timothy C. Is clearly an expert in this field, and he was able to explain concepts to me that I had almost no knowledge of beforehand.

Baz, 2 lessons with Timothy

very knowledgeable

Very great for our first session so far. My comprehension in increasing rapidly. I suffer from insomnia and require extra support outside of class. Timothy was very helpful.
