About Timothy

Hi! My name is Timothy R. and I look forward to being your tutor.

I have a diverse amount of tutoring experience. This tutoring experience includes a three month immersion trip I took in Spain where I taught an English class to about 40 students with ages ranging from 16-65 and tutored several students one on one during the three months I was there.

I currently work in Agriculture and use my bi-lingual knowledge on a daily basis. I have a BA in Liberal Arts and a Spanish minor.

I'm a very patient, humble, and understanding teacher. I understand what it's like to learn a new language, as I am a language student myself. I am easy to get along with.

My teaching style emphasizes the importance of proper repetitive use of the language. I love to have fun but at the same I am the type of tutor that will push you to stay focused on learning.
I expect my students to work hard.

You must have the desire to learn the language you are pursuing. Mental capability does far little in comparison than the desire and determination it takes to learn a new language. I only want students that want to learn the language.

Hola, mi nombre es Timoteo R. y tengo ganas de ser su tutor.

Mis experiencias de ser tutor son muy diversas. Esta experiencia incluye un viaje de tres meses a España, cuando enseñe una clase de mas o menos 40 estudiantes cuales tuvieron entre 16-65 años y yo daba clases privadas a otro estudiantes durante los tres meses de este viaje.

Actualmente trabajo en la agricultura y uso mi conocimiento bilingüe diario. Tengo un degrado BA en Artes Liberales y un menor en Español.

Soy muy paciente, humilde, y buen entendedor cuando enseño. Entiendo las dificultades de aprender un idioma nuevo porque yo soy estudiante de otro idioma también. Soy muy amable y es fácil para llevarse bien conmigo.

Cuando enseno, hago énfasis en la importancia de repetición, en una manera correcta, y en mucha practica verbal del idioma. Me gusta pasar un buen rato pero también me gusta empujar la importancia de enfocarse en sus estudios. Espero mucho que mis estudiantes trabajen muy duro.

Hay de tener el deseo y determinación para aprender un idioma. Es mas importante que tenga el deseo que tenga habilidad. Yo solo quiero estudiantes que quieren aprender el idioma.

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.

Chess

I was taught chess at a very young age (6 or 7). I learned tactics by studying openings and strategies that are archived online. I played chess during high school and was a member of the chess club and participant of formal, ranked chess tournaments in the Boise, ID area. Chess is my favorite board game and I play chess whenever I have the time, usually on my chess.com account (because my current contacts are usually not a challenge). My tutoring tactics vary by age and level of skill.
