About Timothy

I started tutoring math and physics, long ago, while I was still an undergraduate. Since then I have become more interested in English, including writing. I'm currently an MA TESOL student and I love to help students have fun while learning to think for themselves about the language. I want to spend my life immersed in foreign cultures, traveling to far away lands. I have a wide variety of interests and believe that teaching English will be a way for me to connect with others and fulfill my travel desire. I think of tutoring as a way for me to share my knowledge and insights with another student, as I will always be a student of life.

I have excelled in a variety of subjects in my academic career. I feel like I can relate to the particular challenges and stresses that learning a second, third, or more language involves. I am currently learning Mandarin as well as Spanish.

As for English, I have honed my writing skills, particularly in academic writing (e.g., research papers), and am eager to begin my ESL teaching career to transfer my knowledge base. I have been intensely studying the research and techniques involved with teaching ESL for the last two years and am looking forward to my new career of helping others learn English.
