Wonderful Tutor!
Tim was punctual, professional and VERY flexible with our schedule. Tim was kind and respectful to my son and our family. Tim was very knowledgeable with my sons calculus material. The lessons Tim delivered were in a professional manner; he is an extremely patient man. Tim was thorough with his explanations and very encouraging with the solving process. With Tim's tutoring my son has maintained a B+ grade and has boosted his confidence. I would highly recommend Tim, my son benefited from his lessons and we look forward to working with Tim again in April when he returns to NH.

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!

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.

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.
