About Timothy

I went to college with the ambition of teaching English. While at Cape Fear Community College (CFCC), I tutored for the Minority Male Mentoring Program. I finished my Associate's there and moved on to UNCW, graduating from there in Spring of 2013 with a B.A. in English. That Fall, I began teaching high school English in an alternative school in Whiteville by day and taught a remedial English class at CFCC two nights a week. As I juggled these two jobs, I started taking classes at UNCP in Spring of 2014, working toward my Master's Degree that I will receive in Spring 2017.

My interest in tutoring is a natural progression from my desire to teach. I take time in in my classroom to try to make sure my students are understanding the work I give them - I believe that rolling through lessons that some students struggle with and don't understand is a waste of time. The knowledge I handle needs to be understood and applied to be of any use to anyone. I place a high value on people becoming better readers and writers.

I can help you pay attention to details - from your writing being grammatically and structurally sound to comprehending and applying texts better. I have given my fair share of speeches and lectures, as well as been a musical performer. These experiences combined with my passion for excellence have made me a great coach for students of public speaking.

Please feel free to contact me to help you with the academic goals you need to achieve.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Public Speaking

During my undergraduate work at UNCW (2011-2013) I received an A- in Public Speaking (COM 110) as well as an A- in Rhetorical Theory since 1900 (ENG 389).
For the past 2 years, part of my teaching duties required me to coach and oversee graduating seniors' graduation project, which concludes with a 10 minute presentation to a panel of judges. I have spent a lot of time teaching the art of presenting to these students.
