About Timothy

I have a bachelor's degree in health and physical education from the University of Hawaii at Hilo. After college, I obtained my teaching certification in elementary education. During that time, I worked at a tutor and counselor to 88 students at the Nenana Student Living Center in Nenana, Alaska. A secondary degree was always in my plans, so I completed my master's degree in Education with a specialization in special education from Northcentral University. Teaching has always been a part of my life, and I bring a hands on learning experience to any subject.

After teaching 5th grade in South Dakota, I've had the opportunity to move to Pittsburgh, PA, where I am the Executive Director of Casey's Clubhouse and the Miracle League of the South Hills. This opportunity allows me to put two of my passions together, helping with children with special needs and baseball. Working mainly out of my home, I have the ability to provide my education experience to help students of all ages succeed in multiple subjects. My main focus of expertise is elementary (K-6) all subjects, American history, geography, and writing (K-12). I also have experience in conversational English with ELL students. I spent a summer in Thailand during college teaching at a local school in Chiang Mai.

When you grow up with a mother who is an English teacher, you get taught from a young age how to speak and write correctly. With the help of her, I've developed what's called "the perfect paragraph" that helps writers meet the standards set out by the common core curriculum. Writing in that form will not only help an elementary student learn the basics of writing, but it can help high school students complete essays and college applications.

I am certified in classroom K-6th all subjects. I have two years of classroom teaching in experience in Brandon, SD.

American history is a passion of mine. I do not have an qualifications (2 courses away from a history minor), however I taught social studies for two years focusing on the Native American Times to the Civil War.

I have a master's in education with a specialization in special education. I'm the executive director of a non-profit organization which provides opportunities to children and adults with special needs.

Being that I work from home, I have a very unique schedule and will be able to tutor you at different hours of the day. I encourage you to sign me as your tutor because I have the passion to help you find the success you wish to achieve.

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.

Baseball

I played baseball at the collegiate level, and had tryouts at the professional level. For eight years, I worked alongside baseball Hall of Fame shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. and his brother Bill Ripken. I currently work for a Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame first baseman Sean Casey. I've coached "The Ripken Way" across 48 states and seven foreign countries.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a teaching certificate in elementary education through the state of South Dakota. I'm currently working to get that transferred to the state of PA so I can become a substitute teacher during my off hours. I have two years of classroom teaching experience at the 5th grade level.

Social Studies

I taught 5th grade for two years and my focus in the classroom was social studies with an emphasis on writing and English. During our lessons, we covered everything from the Native American time period to the Civil War. We studied the history of government and conducted in classroom elections as well as model Senate and House or Representative hearings.

Special Needs

I have a master's degree in Education with a specialization in special education from Northcentral University. I currently am the executive director for a non-profit that provides athletic opportunities to kids and adults with special needs. I've grown up supporting the special needs community through volunteer work at Pathfinders for Autism, the Special Olympics, and Best Buddies.
