About Timothy


Bio

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 12+ years, and full-time for 9+. I've had students between the ages of 6 and 66, with a focus on high...

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 12+ years, and full-time for 9+. 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 graduate math courses as well. I have been an adjunct professor, but far prefer the tutoring. I've taken students from Fs to Bs multiple times, and the largest point increase that I've had with a student between tests is 73. I also work with students on enrichment materials in preparation for things like the AMC test. 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?

Reviews

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.

Ivan, 8 lessons with Timothy

GREAT tutor and easy to reach.

This tutor is extremely knowledgeable. He Knows Precalculus and Stats. He is easy going and my son loves him! He always knows the material.

Debra, 139 lessons with Timothy

Excellent

I was having difficulties with different topics and a few specific problems, and Tim helped me tremendously by focusing the lessons on exactly what I needed help with, and by explaining everything very clearly and succinctly. He knows calculus inside and out and is able to teach it extremely well. I am a great deal more confident after only 3 lessons with him.

A Great Tutor who Helped Me Out a Whole Lot!

I met with Timothy M. in a coffee shop in New York City. As I am an adult student who is seeking to gain my high school math teaching certification, I had a wide variety of mathematical questions to ask Timothy, especially as they were related to passing the Praxis II math content test, which is required for certification in my home state of Connecticut. Timothy really helped me out a lot on all of my questions, and I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking for help with math at any level.

Great Tutor

Timothy has been reliable and totally easy to work with. He is patient with my 14 year old, but strict when he has to be. I recommend him highly.
