About Tim


Bio

Hi, I'm Tim. I have a B.A. and M.A. in mathematics from Boston University
and many graduate credit hours from Oklahoma State University. I have taught and
tutored at both of those institutions and also at Pima Community College in
Tucson, AZ and at Northern Oklahoma College in Stillwater, OK. All in all, I have
over 30 years of experience teaching and tutoring mathematics.

Hi, I'm Tim. I have a B.A. and M.A. in mathematics from Boston University

over 30 years of experience teaching and tutoring mathematics.

I love tutoring because it is one of the most effective ways of helping students
learn difficult topics. Many students go to a lecture and feel like they've
understood the material presented only to start their homework and get stuck. My
approach is to help guide the student's thinking by asking them questions designed to
help them think through the process. If a student can understand the reasoning behind
a particular method or problem, they usually can remember it much more easily.
My goal in this kind of session is to get the student to a point at which they can
start doing the assignment on their own. Of course, some students need to learn
the material from scratch, and I can certainly go into teacher mode and present the
material. I also have resources to provide practice problems and examples
because I have experience teaching and tutoring many subjects including Intermediate
Algebra, College Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear
Algebra, Discrete Math, Analysis and Abstract Algebra.

If you have questions or would like to schedule a lesson, feel free to contact me
and I will respond quickly.

Awesome Tutor

He helped me go through an exam review and basically helped me understand the entire semester's worth of work in context in a little over an hour. Very helpful all around.

Isaiah, 1 lesson with Tim

Patient and wise

Pointed out a lot of things I had never thought of before. Proved crucial for my exam! Though sometimes, it took a while to get to the point that I have been trying to get to.

Zachary, 1 lesson with Tim

Very knowledgeable tutor

Tim was a great tutor. He answered my messages fast allowing us to schedule a session. I have had multiple questions regarding linear algebra proofs and justifications and have gone over approximately 4-5 tutors who struggled and were not able to solve or explain my questions. However, Tim right away knew how to solve and explain the question to me multiple times and very well. I would recommend him to anyone because I have struggled to find the right tutor for my college linear algebra course as it is very advanced and conceptual and I would recommend Tim to anyone for this subject.

Malak, 1 lesson with Tim

Knowledgeable, Intelligent, Informative

Tim was so patient with me in understanding the material I needed for comprehension in my assignment. When I didn’t understand something, he goes above and beyond to make sure you understand and the way he explains things make you comprehend and retain the material beyond the tutoring session. I highly recommend Tim not only for his expertise in his area - but also his natural and keen ability to teach - this is a skill of its own and Tim is a skilled comprehensive tutor for it.

Dasnet, 5 lessons with Tim

Great tutor

I've specifically reviewed equivalence and proving equivalence relationship, and modular arithmetic. He explained the concepts very well. He thoughtfully broke down harder examples, so I can understand both the smaller and bigger picture.

Great tutor!

Tim has been instrumental in helping me gain a better understanding of Calculus 2. He's very knowledgeable and patient, I look forward to my next session with him!
