About Timothy

If you're looking for somebody to either help you catch up in math, or get ahead in math, I'm your guy. I was a math major at Washington University in St. Louis, and minored in German, economics, and writing. While there, I tutored students in everything from counting to calculus, and beyond. I then earned a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Bard College in '07. I've been tutoring for 10+ years, and full-time for 6+. I've had students between the ages of 6 and 66, with a focus on high school students and that curriculum, though I am very comfortable tutoring any undergraduate math course, and would likely be able to assist in any graduate math course. I have been an adjunct professor, but far prefer the tutoring. As for teaching style, I feel that the concept drives the skill. If you have the idea of what to do on a problem, you do not need to complete 10 similar problems. As such, I like to spend more time on the why than the what. If you choose me as your tutor, your math skills will improve. What more could you ask for? If you're looking for somebody to either help you catch up in math, or get ahead in math, I'm your guy.

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.

He is great! — He is a very good listener and understands where your misunderstandings are and where your difficulty with the problem lies. Tim is very good at explaining the steps or the rationale for the solution of the problem. He is very good and a pro at this. I revised 10 times my review because it appears I am gushing over his tutoring skills. Anyway, if you need help with Math Tim is your go-to tutor. ...
