About Timothy

I am a certified Elementary teacher w/ a BS in Kindergarten and Elementary degree (K-6). I currently teach all core subjects, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies to my students.

In addition to my elementary degree, I teach ESL (English as a Second Language), Middle School English, Middle School Social studies as well. I have been teaching now for 4 years and am very passionate about my profession. Teaching to me is all about helping my students grow as learners. Once my students succeed, I know I have succeeded.

In addition to teaching full-time within my district, I have also tutored part time on the side. I have done face to face tutoring, as well as online tutoring. I find that online tutoring is very interactive, which students love. Using technology, I am able to engage my learners so they can succeed in their core content subject. A lot of the lessons I have taught in school are inquiry based, where the student becomes the “teacher” and tries to identify what strategies or lesson we are learning today. I feel that inquiry based learning makes lessons more engaging and powerful for students to take outside of the classroom. Tutoring is a passion for me because I can help my students become lifelong learners, and to give students the necessary tools for them to be successful.
