I can quickly ascertain and help students’ overcome weaknesses so they can swiftly achieve higher proficiency, retain deeper understanding, and approach problem resolution with insightful alternatives.

I retired from the Untied States Air Force and have more than 43 years of project management and system acquisition experience.

I tutored in-the-class middle and high school math for six years, and have been tutoring in the home and on-line for fifteen years as well as at a local community college for 5 years.

Especially satisfying is discovering the right kind of prodding students need to master concepts on their own. I am more interested in transferring know-how to students than just preparing them to pass tests.

Review for Timothy

I initially needed help with my Pre-Calculus class in the area of trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Timothy gave me confidence by helping me master the definitions and by detailing the concepts to apply when solving analytical and word problems. He often offered more than one way to solve a problem which allowed me to use my own unrealized capabilities. We reviewed in detail the polar coordinate systems and the basics of vectors. He helped even more when I advanced into Calculus. Mastering definitions and concepts were key to my success and understanding. Now I feel I have the tools to graph, determine critical points of curves/functions, and solve complex rate problems. More importantly, Timothy showed me an effective method for learning math (study before class and develop questions to clarify details) which I will use in college as I progress.

good teacher

Timothy was patient and helpful. He ensured my son understood the method and was confident in his understanding. Timothy was responsible and fair.

Knowledgeable, but Unable to Help at the Last Minute

Timothy was 'hired' at the last minute to teach my child a very specific lesson for an upcoming pre-calculus exam. It's likely that Timothy is well-versed in pre-calculus. However, my child had a very specific need: to do the pre-calculus work without a calculator. Timothy was caught off guard by this requirement, and therefore was restricted in how he could thoroughly help my child. This review is specific to this last-minute tutoring session, and it should not be construed as a poor reflection on Timothy's ability to instruct pre-calculus.

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

With only one lesson I can already tell how dedicated Tim is in his work. He answered all questions I had and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He was friendly and I will definitely come back again. Thank you Tim!

Oscar, 20 lessons with Timothy

My son thoroughly enjoyed working with Tim. Overall it was a great experience.

Tim was very prepared for the tutor session. He was patient and very knowledgeable about "parent" functions. No doubt Tim has a deep understanding of math and calculus. My son looks forward to working with him again in the near future.

Great knowledge and knows how to reach the student.

My son loved Tim, he has great knowledge and knows how to reach the student. Definitely we will continue, thank you. TB

Algebra 1 and 2

During several on-line sessions, Timothy improved my confidence with my high school Algebra 1. He helped in many ways which enabled me to pass my final exam. He first coached me how to accurately factor trinomials, difference of squares, and difference/sum of cubes. He described several shortcuts in solving system of linear equations. He also illustrated a simple way to graph linear functions using the slope-intercept and the point-slope methods. And finally, he explained in terms I understood how to approach solving word problems, converting digital to scientific notation, finding percentages, interpreting points in the cartesian coordinate system. He’s an effective math tutor.

Great tutor AP Calculus

Timothy tutored me in AP Calculus. He was very knowledgeable and has a way of making you feel comfortable during the lessons. His schedule is very flexible and he is very punctual. I can say he has made a difference in my class grade. Highly recommended.

Knowledgeable and confident

Timothy and my daughter worked on Algebra II equations. He could see right away where she was going wrong and helped to get her back on track. He was very knowledgeable, very nice, and easy to work with.
