Bio

I pride myself on memorable but often silly examples that make sense of abstract math concepts. For example, I compare Type I and Type II error to having a crush on someone. My goal is for you to understand math, not just be able to follow the steps.

I pride myself on memorable but often silly examples that make sense of abstract math concepts. For example, I compare Type I and Type II error to having a crush on someone. My goal is for you to understand math, not just be able to follow the steps.

Teaching is something I enjoy doing and something I have a lot of experience with both a tutor and college professor. My recent tutoring students have included high school students looking to get into college, middle school students struggling with algebra and geometry, college students learning the strange world of statistics, and an adult with learning disabilities. As a former college professor in psychology, I have excellent written and oral communication skills as well as a strong grasp of statistics. Having taught at a community college in the past has involved working with a lot of students who find school does not come naturally to them, and I have learned how to help them excel.

Reviews

SPSS Expert

I had an assignment I needed to finish for statistics that required SPSS. I was completely lost but Timothy walked me through each problem. He explained things in a manner that I could understand.

Laura, 1 lesson with Timothy

Tim is great!

Friendly, patient and knowledgeable tutoring to help me with biostatistics and SPSS. He made the subject easier to understand as he went along with me, Will be using his services again during the semester.

Ekram, 2 lessons with Timothy

Knowledgeable and helpful

Timothy was very helpful in understanding my assignment and helping me create the SPSS output, but also explained the output to me so I can create the written portion of it. Highly recommend!

Javier, 3 lessons with Timothy

SPSS Quick and Easy

Timothy was very helpful in teaching me how to navigate SPSS. I have no prior experience in SPSS. I will be working with Timothy again soon and hopefully will be an advanced user once we are done.

Lisa, 5 lessons with Timothy

Sagacious tutor

Timothy took the time to break down complex SPSS functions and explain the purpose of running different analysis (why, how). He helped me better understand my own dissertation! Overall, he was patient, calm, and helpful.

Kevin, 6 lessons with Timothy

Knowledgeable and patient

Timothy explained statistical concepts clearly so that I could relate to the questions being asked in the homework assignment. I look forward to learning more about statistics.

Lucille (GWU), 11 lessons with Timothy

Great First Session...

Timothy understands the subjects he teaches, and he is quick with helpful explanations. I spent a very productive first session learning from Timothy and I look forward to many more.

Howie, 7 lessons with Timothy

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Timothy helped me in an SPSS assignment that I was very worried about. He knows his stuff, and been very patient with me. I am very happy with my experience with Timothy and will definitely study with him again.

Timothy was very helpful with reviewing a complex SPSS assignment I had turned in for school and the accompanying feedback received from the instructor. I would highly recommend him.
