About Timothy

I have tutored Physics, Economics, Psychology, and Math up to Calculus II to my local community college level students. Those students were able to schedule tutoring sessions with me for a maximum of 2 hours per week per subject. With those two hours, I had to work together with every student to make the most of our time! 2 hours doesn't sound a lot, but when you're focused and determined to learn, a lot can be accomplished! I am most proud of one student I had who was really struggling with Physics because she was taking an accelerated summer course. After a few sessions of working with her, she told me that she had been getting A's in her Physics exams and that she likes the way that I teach! It's a great thing to hear that your efforts and the students efforts are not going to waste.

I have always had a passion for Math and Science since I was in Elementary School. That's why I love to teach and share my knowledge in those subjects with others. I approach students according to their own needs, even those with special needs. I try to dissect and find the root of their problems, then I'll fix the source. After that, suddenly things become easier for my students and for me. Whether you are a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner, I will make sure I tutor according to your learning style. One thing I take pride in is my ability to understand each student and to find out why they are struggling with certain subjects. I will make sure they have a strong foundation and understanding so they can keep the lessons I provide them with for the rest of their education. I communicate well and am very easy to work with!

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.

Knowledgeable and Encouraging — Tim is an excellent tutor. He has been working with my son on SAT prep, physics and pre-calculus. As a B student with some learning challenges, my son needed a tutor that worked at a slower pace. Tim has done a great job helping my son prepare for tests while working at a good pace. Tim always responded to scheduling requests in a timely manner. I highly recommend him. ...
