About Tim


Bio

Hi I'm Tim! I am a renewable energy/ mechanical engineer looking to help students excel in math, science, engineering, and Spanish. I have previously tutored my high school aged family members with their various math courses (algebra, geometry, calculus), both in person and remotely. Throughout my studies and professional life, I have helped tutor my fellow students and colleagues to help them grasp technical issues relating to math, science, and my engineering fields. Recently I have been...

Hi I'm Tim! I am a renewable energy/ mechanical engineer looking to help students excel in math, science, engineering, and Spanish. I have previously tutored my high school aged family members with their various math courses (algebra, geometry, calculus), both in person and remotely. Throughout my studies and professional life, I have helped tutor my fellow students and colleagues to help them grasp technical issues relating to math, science, and my engineering fields. Recently I have been helping family members learn and develop their Spanish skills, as I am proficient in the language.

I graduated cum laude with a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and have a M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Engineering. In order to obtain my education in these engineering fields, I had to have a very solid foundation in both math and science, which I am eager to pass along to my students.

When I teach a subject, I bring enthusiasm to really engage the student, and help them generate interest in the topic. I try to make learning a fun experience so that the time is enjoyable for them. I have learned that the best way to effectively teach a student is to adapt to their own particular needs and reinforce their existing knowledge and abilities. That encouragement can help boost their confidence and interest in the subject, and lead to a deeper understanding. I love seeing students make connections and truly understand the concepts they were once intimidated by. Depending on the subject material, I bring a loose lesson plan and topics that need to be covered to a particular session and adapt it to the specific needs of the student. I feel it is important to help instill a desire for life-long learning in my students, and I take that approach throughout my lessons.

I have lived in 5 countries and traveled in a total of 35, which has helped me adapt to all sorts of people, situations, and personal needs. This also helps me adjust my teaching style to any student.

I want to make sure I am able to assist my students as much as possible and I appreciate any resources or suggestions that students or parents would like to provide. I am located in the greater Lehigh Valley area and am available for online lessons as well. I sincerely look forward to hearing from and potential students or parents, and please feel free to contact me with further questions or to schedule a lesson.

Will Use Tim Again- Happy Student, Happy Parent!

From a parent's perspective, Tim was punctual, polite, and accommodating. He also came prepared, using materials we uploaded to Wyzant in advance of the session. From my son's perspective, Tim was patient, knowledgeable, and helpful. He helped my son improve his understanding of the material. We will definitely use him again!
