About Tim

I am currently a full-time instructor in the Rutgers system. I began my career by teaching high school history (both US and world) for three years before moving on to graduate study. During my time at Rutgers, I've taught a wide range of classes relating to political science. I also spent two years working as an instructor in the Rutgers First Year Writing Program, the sole prerequisite for every Rutgers undergraduate.

Due to my experience teaching in both the high school and college setting, I have a good understanding of what it takes for students to succeed in college--and of the various challenges they face in the transition from the high school to the university setting.

If I can be of assistance, please let me know.

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.

I taught several sections of Expository Writing at Rutgers between 2010-2011; this is the only class that virtually every Rutgers student must take. We focused extensively on reading comprehension, grammar, sentence structure, and so on.
