About Tim


Bio

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.

Physics,

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,

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,

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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He was very flexible and is a very good teacher. He explain things very well and was extremely patient. I did very well on my test with just one lesson. I highly recommend Tim for a tutor.

Very Nice and Knowledgeable

My son Paul is studying for the SAT and the Math 2 Subject SAT. Although Paul is good at math, there were a few areas that were confusing to him. Paul said that there was one type of question he answered wrong on all the practice tests and Tim was the only person who was able to explain to him what he was doing wrong. Tim then gave him similar questions during the tutoring session to ensure that he understood how to do it and then sent us follow up sheets so Paul could continue practicing. Paul told me he thinks Tim will be a huge help and wishes we had started using him as a math tutor sooner.

Great tutor

Very knowledgeable and patient. Strong understanding of pre calc and calculus, helping me study for my pre calc assessment this summer.

David, 6 lessons with Tim

Excellent

Tim tutored our 10th grade son for his high school Chemistry and SAT II exams. Our son felt he was extremely knowledgeable and explained concepts clearly and patiently.

Extremely gifted

I have never before requested a tutor online, so finding Tim was a godsend. He is extremely patient with my sons, as well as gifted in explaining the topics to them. My kids are at different levels in science (13 yr old studies Biology, while the 15 yr old studies Accelerated Chemistry), yet Tim is able to keep them motivated the entire time. The kids really enjoy having Tim come tutor them. They have a much better understanding of the topic after his instruction. He is very easy going and gets along with both of them suburbly. He is extremely assessible and really is quite flexible with his days and times. Both of their grades have improved after having Tim's help.

unbelievable tutor!!!!

Tim is the world's best tutor, very patient and caring, quick to assess weaknesses. Professional and always prompt. Just perfect for my 14 year old son! I will not hesitate to use him again.

Terrific tutor (in Stamford/ White Plains area) with great results

Tim has been a terrific influence on my two sons who are in 9th and 12th grade. Tim was able to look at their lessons plans, review their work and help them determine exactly where they needed help. If you know most boys, studying is one of their least favorite activities. Tim, however, is so good that they actually ask for him! Rare for a teen to request to do extra work. My eldest son went from a C average on exams to a B+ after just a few sessions. My other son is studying for standardized tests and needed to prepare quickly for concepts he really didn't know well. Tim has simply been wonderful. It is money and time well spent with excellent results. Plus, he is extremely nice.

Best Tutor Great Person

Tim is a fantastic tutor and we highly recommend him. He is tutoring our son in Honors pre-calc and honors physics. Our son is looking for basic understanding and enrichment. Tim is a mechanical engineer, so he has the expertise that our son is looking for. Tim has been a great help and is willing to stay as long as is needed to get the work accomplished. He is dedicated and kind. We have provided him with textbooks and he reviews the assignments before he comes, which is very helpful for efficient use of time. It has been a pleasure to meet Tim, to see how wonderful a tutor he is, as well as a role model. He is intelligent, patient, and flexible, which makes him a very effective tutor.

Great Tutor

Tim is a very patient tutor. I am 59 and needed to brush up on both math concepts and chemistry concepts. He was able to help me in both of these areas. He is both punctual and professional and able to break things down for me so I was no so afraid. I would highly recommend him!
