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.

I love tutoring because it is one of the most effective ways of helping students

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.

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.

Patient and knew what he was doing

Tim is quite patient and worked with me to show me what to do and then let me show him what I learned later on. This was really helpful as if a solution is handed to me and I do not get a chance to show that I understood it, I tend to forget it fast. I can not recommend Tim enough

Sean, 6 lessons with Tim

great and patient tutor

He has what we call teaching pedagogy. He is really good at explaining difficult logic and theorems. I highly recommend him for those who are looking for a great tutor

Anne Judith, 3 lessons with Tim

Life saver

Mr. Tim is my life saver for the difficult Math. He has a deep understanding Math logic. Highly recommend him for anyone.

Emily, 9 lessons with Tim

Excellent Tutoring

Tim has a way of taking complex discrete mathematics concepts and explaining them patiently in a simple, clear, and concise manner. I find his instruction very helpful.

Dennis, 35 lessons with Tim

Fantastic

Tim helped piece together some of the concepts I hadn't fully grasped, and I feel more rooted in the fundamentals of abstract algebra.

Samuel, 1 lesson with Tim

Very patient and helpful tutor!

He explained everything so patiently, and went over any questions I needed help on. Super helpful throughout my entire semester, helped me understand everything!

Rana, 3 lessons with Tim

Discrete Mathematics. Very helpful and easy to understand

He knows exactly how to help. Very clear and understandable. I wouldn't have gotten through some difficult problems without him. He is willing to fit you in, even if it's last minute. Definitely recommend Tim!

Trish, 4 lessons with Tim

Fantastic teacher, very patient and helpful!

My one-on-one session with Tim was great! He is very patient and really keeps on you on your feet with great prompt questions.

Nesha, 2 lessons with Tim

Very articulate

Took the time to explain the concepts to aid my understanding. Very knowledgeable about functions in Discrete. I look forward to seeing him again for discrete math

Syed, 8 lessons with Tim

Knowledgeable, Patient, and Kind Tutor!

Tim has been helping me with Discrete structures/math assignments, and help me with problem solving strategies. He is incredibly helpful and patient, and helps slow learners like me grasp these math concepts better.
