I'm so very happy with Tim! After one lesson, my son had that light back in his eyes and was so happy and had his confidence back with his math! Thank you Tim for reigniting the light in my son's eyes and helping him! I would recommend Tim to everyone!

Tim is helping my son with Algebra 2. We had our first session and so far so good. Patient, thorough and helpful. Looking forward to progress and success!

Tim is very patient with both my boys. He allows them to ask lots of questions. They both are missing key components in Math and Tim was able to it out. Tim enjoys Math and it shows.

This was my son's first pre-calculus tutoring session with Tim. He was very patient and explained things in a way that my son could understand. We will be using Tim's services again.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have worked for over 25 years as an aerospace engineer with a master's degree in aeronautical & astronautical engineering. This required taking extensive math including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, three levels of college calculus & differential equations. As a computer programmer I programmed using not only algebra but these other math subjects extensively and rigorous as to the correctness of the math. I have tutored as a parent of high school children on a regular basis.

As a computer programmer I programmed extensively as a satellite orbital analyst using not only algebra but the other math subjects (above) extensively, which required a rigorous math understanding and practical knowledge to implement the math in solving engineering problems. I have tutored regularly as a parent of high school children and enjoy immensely bringing the subjects across to kids learning the subjects for the first time.

As an aerospace engineer holding a Master's degree (MS) in Aeronautical & Astronautical Engineering (University of Illinois, UIUC) I have had to extensively apply geometry in my work as an orbital analyst. This AAE discipline required taking extensive math courses including a foundation in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, 3 levels of college calculus and differential equations. My job as a computer programmer required to correctly and rigorously understand and program computers to solve various geometrical problems having to do with Earth-satellite, satellite-satellite geometric computations. I have tutored my high school children in geometry, as well as other math subjects. I enjoy helping them "see" and understand geometric principles, and how to apply them directly to solving geometry problems.

As an aerospace engineer I performed orbital analysis and computer simulation development where physics and math were extensively used in my work in developing algorithms, solving a host of physics and dynamics problems, and programming simulations and analysis tools that were rigorously used for real time operations. This involved understanding gravitational, solar radiation, atmospheric drag, and thrusting forces in computing acceleration forces and attitudinal dynamical forces on satellites. For my degree in aerospace engineering y educational required several courses in Physics. I have tutored my own high school children in math and also physics. I enjoy taking physical problems and formulating the steps to solving a specific physics problem.

I worked as an aerospace engineer for aerospace contractors, and hold a master's degree (MS) in aeronautical & astronautical engineering (AAE) from the University of Illinois (UIUC). I have had to extensively use math, including a strong understanding of pre-algebra, and other math disciplines in my work as an orbital analyst engineer. My degree required a rigorous and practical understanding of pre-algebra as it was the foundation of mastering higher levels of math and physics. I have tutored as a parent of high school children in pre-algebra, as well as subsequent math subjects, and enjoy greatly helping them understand and apply logically how to solve pre-algebra problems and bring the subject across in ways they can understand, with the help of graphs, number-lines, and pictures.

As a recently retired Aerospace Engineer with a Master's degree (MS) in Aeronautical & Astronautical Engineering (AAE, University of Illinois) I regularly had to apply virtually all levels of mathematics and physics, including precalculus and calculus in my everyday work and computer programming where concepts of math was fundamental to doing one's job. For my specific discipline in aerospace satellite orbital mechanics and dynamics, precalculus was applied regularly to problem solving and simulation development where answers had to be correct.

Now, the enjoyable part about tutoring precalculus is helping either those who are having difficulty, or have a less than helpful teacher, or those that want to excel at the highest level. Everyone can understand if taught with patience, showing how to approach many example problems, utilizing personal one to one interaction for learning how to logically step through problems by observing many example problems that they wouldn't get in class, and then applying and practicing what they learn.
