About Timothy

After retiring as a counselor, I began teaching developmental math at GTCC as an adjunct instructor. To meet SACS certification, I completed 18 graduate hours in math through Converse College. More recently, I have worked as a tutor in the Learning Assistance Center helping with developmental math, pre-calculus, some statistics and math survey courses. I am comfortable working on a computer, with a calculator or on paper.

I believe that my counseling skills helped prepare me for the transition to an adjunct math instructor. The ability to develop a rapport with students is very helpful in understanding their strengths and weaknesses. I like to teach and I like to tutor as well and enjoy the challenge of problem-solving. I have experience working as an independent contractor as a previous owner of an L.L.C.
