About Tim


Bio

I graduated in 2020 from BYU summa cum laude with a degree in biochemistry. After a gap year spent tutoring, skiing and preparing for medical school, I have recently begun classes as an M1 at VP&S at Columbia University.

During my time at BYU I worked as a teaching assistant for organic chemistry for 3 years, and during that time I helped many struggling students to excel in a difficult course. After self-studying for 3 months, I scored a 527 on the MCAT - a 100th percentile score. Since...

I graduated in 2020 from BYU summa cum laude with a degree in biochemistry. After a gap year spent tutoring, skiing and preparing for medical school, I have recently begun classes as an M1 at VP&S at Columbia University.

During my time at BYU I worked as a teaching assistant for organic chemistry for 3 years, and during that time I helped many struggling students to excel in a difficult course. After self-studying for 3 months, I scored a 527 on the MCAT - a 100th percentile score. Since then I have helped many students to improve their grades in their medical school prerequisite class, master difficult content, and boost their MCAT scores!

Let me help you excel in science, whether that is organic chemistry, biology, biochemistry or physics!

CARS Score increased 124 -> 131 in 5 sessions

After 5 sessions, my stagnant 124 in CARS jumped to 131. Tim is an extremely kind, accommodating, and thorough teacher that will provide concrete tips for sharpening your testing strategy. If you’re willing to put in the work, Tim is the teacher that can help almost any student improve their MCAT performance.

Great tutor for MCAT CARS.

Tim is very patient and knowledgeable. He explains techniques and different approaches to help in MCAT CARS section. He takes time to explain and goes through the passages to show how to effectively read and find main ideas in different types of passages. I'm glad I could get help from him to prepare for MCAT CARS.

CARS, Psych/Soc Section, Overall Tips and Tricks

Super helpful!!! I've had 2 sessions with him so far and planning to schedule more sessions. He has a lot of useful tips for each section. He's very patient and will listen to all your concerns. I really appreciate his help.

Knowledgeable on CARS Strategy

Has a lot of good tools and tips on how to approach CARS passages and questions. Started practicing using his strategies that I thought would work for me and noticed a difference immediately!

Samuel, 6 lessons with Tim

Extremely helpful guy

Tim is the man, very instructive and helpful. He taught me a strategy I started implementing that has helped me tremendously. He also helps identify weaknesses in logic.

Grant, 12 lessons with Tim

An incredibly helpful, patient, and kind tutor!

Tim is awesome! Orgo is not a strong subject for me, but our review of important topics such as glycolysis, the electron transport chain, and the Krebs cycle leave me feeling more confident. He is knowledgeable about what he tutors in, and he takes the time to thoughtfully explain any problem areas. I always look forward to the next session.

Shayna, 18 lessons with Tim

so awesome!

Tim is very patient and took the time to break down difficult bio passages that I struggled with. I’m so happy to work with him as I’m starting to get better at analyzing this passages.

Siarra, 6 lessons with Tim

Amazing!

Tim is the reason I'm getting above-the-average grades in my class. He's a true gem! He's going faster than most tutors (which saves time and money!), but not too fast - just enough to help you grasp complex concepts. He's incredibly competent in multiple disciplines and quickly finds a unique approach to your particular level. My chemistry professor should learn from him!

Natalya, 13 lessons with Tim

very patient!

During my first lesson with Tim, he took the extra time to make sure I fully understood what’s going on in the CARS passages.

Justin, 2 lessons with Tim

Knowledgeable and kind tutor!

Tim is super helpful! He has helped me better understand C/P and B/B topics I am struggling with by breaking down difficult concepts into parts and explaining them in simpler terms. Tim makes sure you really understand the material! I would definitely recommend him!
