I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in 1984. After serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, I returned to CMU, where I worked as a Robotics Research Engineer, for eight years. Recent academic accomplishments include teaching Signal Processing for the Electrical Engineering Dept. at Columbia University, Electronic Prototyping at Parsons School of Design, and publication in the Proceedings of the 2015 International Conference on Computing Techniques and Mechanical Engineering (ICCTME).
I started teaching professionally in the Marine Corps. I taught Electronic Warfare, Land Survival and Safety. Now I teach High School students, College students, and young men and women attempting to enter the armed forces and medical training programs. I am blessed; I love this work.
In the service, I was an Electronic Warfare Instructor; I also taught Radar Intercepts at Naval Fighter Weapons School, Miramar, CA, and Fallon Naval Air Station, NV. I was a Land Survival Instructor of Aviation Officer Candidates at the U.S. Navy Flight School, Pensacola, FL; I was a Captain, Honorably Discharged, and I am a Veteran of the 1st Gulf War. I taught Electronic Counter-Counter Measures (ECCM) in the Persian Gulf and Tactical Digital Data Link Architecture at White Sands Missile Test Range, NM.
Since then, I have served as a Volunteer Math Tutor at Spring Hill Elementary School (where my daughter then went to school.) I also taught at CMU's Robotics Camp. I have tutored Chemistry and Geometry for students from the Centers for Advanced Study (CAS) program at Taylor Alderdice High School, and taught courses in Robotics and Environmental Science in the Steel Center High School's evening Honors Program.
I worked for two years at Pressley Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness Camp/Secondary Grade School, as a Teacher/Counselor and Supervisor for at-risk youth, so I had current PA Act 33/34 clearances, and am a certified Adult Basic Education (ABE) Instructor with the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council (GPLC.)

Timothy gave my son Brad a good first lesson on Algerbra 2. Tim quickly got Brad's level by asking few questions. He has the ability to explain things in a simple and clear way. Brad liked the way he explained the concepts. Looking forward to work with Tim.Kevin, 17 lessons with Timothy
Very patient and friendly person!
He's willing to show the basics all over again, and show you other ways to figuring out the problem without leaving you confused. Wish I had him as my math teacher in school!Christina, 1 lesson with Timothy
Professional, polite, patient, and knowledgeable, Timothy took as much time as it required to make sure all aspects of the lessons and then some was covered. My son loved him as a tutor, and looks forward to him coming. He states " Timothy is an awesome tutor". Thanks Timothy for a job well done.Marlene, 2 lessons with Timothy
Knowledgeable and experienced tutor
Timothy is a great tutor. First, he helped me to identified areas in physics that I had knowledge gaps. Then, he reviewed with me the needed subject matter and that made easy to review and prepare for my test.Anna, 1 lesson with Timothy
