About Tim


Bio

Hi, my name is Tim. I have a degree in Agricultural Leadership from Texas A&M University, but I have been a teacher and a coach ever since graduation. I taught for 5 years at a small private school, where we were expected to teach a variety of subjects each year. I have taught Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1 for two years each. I taught Physics/Trigonometry for a year. However, my most familiar classes are Logic and Ancient Greek, which I have 4 years of experience in each of those classes. I have...

Hi, my name is Tim. I have a degree in Agricultural Leadership from Texas A&M University, but I have been a teacher and a coach ever since graduation. I taught for 5 years at a small private school, where we were expected to teach a variety of subjects each year. I have taught Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1 for two years each. I taught Physics/Trigonometry for a year. However, my most familiar classes are Logic and Ancient Greek, which I have 4 years of experience in each of those classes. I have taught a handful of other subjects like Literature and Bible classes sprinkled throughout as well. I am currently finishing my first year as an Algebra 2 teacher, and I have benefited from previously teaching on both sides of the subject (Algebra 1 & Trigonometry). Since I would often have a class of about 10-12 students, I grew very comfortable with teaching small groups. In addition to classroom instruction, I would organize small group and individual tutoring sessions as needed during office hours.

I did not have any formal training in any of these subjects prior to teaching them, which has been a great way for me to "learn how to learn". I think that is useful as a tutor, because I am able to adjust quickly to whatever the student is learning and adapt my teaching style to fit the need.

I have found that I really enjoy, and have great success, working one-on-one with students that are serious about becoming better. I truly believe that there are multiple learning styles; thus, there should be multiple teaching styles. My strength is being able to communicate an idea, or concept, in a variety of ways in order to connect with students of varying learning styles. I am passionate about connecting with students in a way that they know I care about not only their grades, but their development as a person. I believe if you are teaching a person how to be a learner, you are preparing that person to be a world-changer. That is my desired legacy.

As you can see, I have experience teaching various levels of math to various types of students. I understand how each level builds into the next level. Due to this experience, I am able to be efficient and stress what is truly needed for success at each level. Because I was not naturally good at math in school, I understand the frustration that can be debilitating to a student that struggles, and I know what helped me to grasp certain concepts.

My primary goal is to help students gain confidence and an appreciation for learning. I also want to help them succeed in school, which is why I welcome any input from the student and parents to help me aid in their classroom learning, not replace it. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and to schedule a lesson.
