About Tim

I enjoy working with young people and to see them make progress in their learning. I was involved teaching English classes to my three children when my wife and I homeschooled them in France. I also worked with my oldest son teaching English to children at a French Association in Valreas, France. One of my responsibilities In France involved organizing places where youth groups around the world could do their presentations. One event I was especially proud of was finding venues for a group of former students from Columbine High School in Colorado who were affected by the massacre there and how they were able to work through this trauma and continue on with their lives. A rally that took place in Paris had 500 people attending.

I have a BA in English Literature. I have been writing part-time for 30 years and won first place in the national Army Awards in 2000 for an article entitled: Saving Private Ryan: Saving Mankind. I have also self-published two books of my own and five books by other authors. In all, I have had some editorial input into ten books and worked for a year as the editor for The Elim Herald in Lima, New York. I worked as a reporter for one year at the Canandaigua Community Newspapers in Canandaigua, NY.

I would love to help children develop a passion for literature, writing, and expressing themselves well.

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.

Bible Studies

I attended The King's College, which included many required subjects related to the Bible and Christian theology. I also attended Elim Bible Institute in Lima, New York for one year (one-year program for church leaders). Finally, I worked as a missionary in Europe for ten years, which included many hours of Bible study and Bible teaching.
