About Tim

Hi,

I am a 2006 graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute majoring in mechanical engineering and a minor in biology. I currently work as an automation / machine designer in a manufacturing facility in CT.

I taught chemistry as a teacher's assistant at Pace University in 2012. I have also tutored virtually every High School math and science subject over the last five years. Most of my tutoring experience is in SAT/ACT math, physics, chemistry, algebra, and trigonometry.

Outside of work I am an avid reader and a certified EMT. I have a passion for learning and teaching. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Physics

My background is in mechanical engineering and physics has always been my favorite subject. As a tutor, I try to relate the subject matter to everyday life; physics in many respects is a study of the world around us. I also try to build off the simplest concepts first and build the students skill set off a solid foundation.

SAT Math

I have tutored the SAT math section for over five years. I have also tutored the individual subject matter - algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Many of my students who have invested the time have seen major increases in their test scores. Generally, I first focus the student on accuracy and master of the material; as the students' skill set increases I focus on speed and timing.

Trigonometry

I have tutored trigonometry for over five years. The concepts can seem very abstract at first and difficult to understand. I believe the key to trigonometry is a fundamental understanding of key concepts (law of sines, law of cosines, 3,4,5 rule, ect.) and applying them. Everything builds off a solid foundation.

Great tutor in all respects — I am a sophomore in college taking a very difficult physics course with absolutely no background. Tim is very helpful in the visualization of the word problems and helps build on an understanding of how to work the foundations of physics around a very particular scenario. He is very easy to work with, easy to reach by phone, and is willing to help despite how the hours may drag on. I recommend him ...
