My students and their parents have said that I have a gift for making Mathematics make sense and even fun! I have had the privilege of teaching high school students Mathematics from Pre-Algebra to AP Calculus A/B at Naperville North H.S., an award-winning public high school, in the western suburbs of Chicago, for 30 years. Some of the most gratifying experiences has been when I have worked with struggling students in small groups or in one-to-one sessions. It has been amazing to witness their growth in mastery, confidence, and enjoyment of Mathematics! I have also had the privilege of working with younger students at a Kumon Math and Reading Center, in Naperville. Thus, I tutor students from Arithmetic to AP Calculus.

In addition to having taught students Mathematics for over 30 years, I balanced my schedule with coaching Football at NNHS (Illinois Class 8A Champions 1992 and 2007!). The skills and strategies of teaching students and coaching athletes are wonderfully complimentary. There is obviously a great deal of coaching in the classroom and a great deal of teaching on the athletic field. I have become a better Mathematics teacher/tutor as a result advancing and applying my coaching skills.

The 30-plus years of the successes of my diverse students qualify me as outstanding Mathematics tutor!

I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you in your Mathematics mastery and enjoyment!

Algebra 1

During my 34 years of teaching high school students Mathematics, I have have the privilege of teaching Algebra 1, Intro. to Algebra, and Accelerated Algebra 1 for a total of 17 years. Some of my most gratifying experiences have been tutoring smaller groups of students and tutoring individual students. It has been amazing to witness the accelerated growth in: skills, confidence, and grades for these students! Clear and concise verbal explanations, neat, logical step-by-step written problem solutions, and an edifying sense of humor are hallmarks of my tutor sessions.

I have had the privilege of teaching high school Geometry students for over 10 years! The geometric skills were reinforced in teaching students Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus.

Great Help with ACT

Tim is doing an amazing job with our son Matthew, helping him prepare for the ACT. We are very grateful and appreciative of his patient and supportive approach.

Kathleen, 10 lessons with Tim

Would recommend!

Tim is patient, calm, and reassuring with my daughter- exactly what she needs to build her confidence with Geometry skills! Tim’s fees are also reasonable compared to other tutors I’ve used for my children.

Becky, 12 lessons with Tim

Knowledgeable and patient Geometry tutor

Tim did a good job at explaining the concepts to JT that he did not get at school. My son's geometry scores improved over the semester. Tim went out of his way to work with our hectic schedule. I would definitely recommend Tim and use him again

Beverly, 16 lessons with Tim

Knowledgeable & Dependable tutor

Tim can always help my daughter with every type of problem in pre-calculus she throws at him. She is gaining confidence in her ability to perform well in the class.

Stacy, 11 lessons with Tim

Great Tutor!

Tim has really helped my children in Pre-Cal, both of their grades have improved! We are so thankful! I wish I didn't have to write 160 words in this review because Tim only really needs a couple. He is great!!!

Brantley , 12 lessons with Tim

Tim taught Algebra 1. He is so kind and patient. We are so grateful! Tim came highly recommended by other students, and he had been so willing to work with our schedule.

Shawna , 8 lessons with Tim

Fantastic Tutor - Much More than Expected

Mr. Tim R was very impressive in every regard. Extremely qualified in the field of calculus. Organized, thorough, great teaching style. Got so much accomplished in two hours. He made the material understandable and encouraged me to learn. Wonderful personality. My highest recommendation.

Gina, 4 lessons with Tim

Helped very much!

Tim spent an hour longer with me than originally planned. He was a great help in getting my work completed and for a math test. I received a 94 on that test and it was a good thing he was available and helped me!

Andrea, 9 lessons with Tim

A+ tutor!

Tim is an excellent tutor! I was feeling a little stressed about logarithmic differentiation, but after working a few problems from my homework with Tim it suddenly seemed a lot clearer to me. Very knowledge/helpful individual whom I will be going back to very soon. Highly recommend!
