About Timothy

I am a California certified teacher and have tutored many in foreign languages. My credentials are for German and Social Science. I have taught courses in US History, French, and Economics at the high-school level and have been a substitute teacher at several district in California for nearly every subject.

My strongest languages are English, Spanish, German, and French, but I have tutored and translated several others. I have worked as an interpreter and am certified polyglot by several agencies. My teaching style is immersion and comparison so that tutees not only feel surrounded by the material, but see how it relates to that, which they already know.

My strengths in Social Science are World History, North American History, and European History. I am able to recognize nearly ever error in every part of English speech, syntax, and spelling and can teach this to pupils. I get along well with pupils and can adapt my approach to varying learning styles.

I reside in the Salem area and am willing to travel in the Willamette Valley.

Approved subjects

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.

I have spent much time in the Netherlands, where I began to learn Dutch. I have served as a Dutch translator for the US Military. I have translated various user manuals from English to Dutch for the US Government. I actively read Dutch crime novels.


English is my first language. I am completing a master's degree in applied linguistics. I know how to navigate and explain the pitfalls of English syntax and spelling.


I have passed several graduate courses in French. I have served as a French interpreter for the US Military. I have visited French-speaking countries and honed my skilled speaking French in various dialects.


I have traveled around the world. I know every country's flag and capital. I have taken several geography courses in college.


I am a a credential California teacher in German. I have a bachelor's degree in German and have passed several graduate level courses. I have traveled to Germany and Austria.


I have much experiencing correcting poor English syntax. I know that syntax is the correct word, and that grammar is not. I have edited various publications and use correct English syntax at all times.


Most proof-reading these days is done on the computer with "spell check" features. It is becoming more and more crucial for students to be able to check their own work for spelling and syntax errors.


I have studied Spanish since 7th grade. I have lived in Southern California, and speak Spanish every day. I have been certified bilingual by several agencies.
