About Timur


Bio

My name is Timur and I just graduated from Yale with a degree in Economics. On campus, I was heavily involved with non-profit consulting, and with the Sigma Chi Fraternity. I graduated top of my class from Gilman, where I was heavily involved with public speaking extra curriculars, and with peer education and mentoring programs.

My name is Timur and I just graduated from Yale with a degree in Economics. On campus, I was heavily involved with non-profit consulting, and with the Sigma Chi Fraternity. I graduated top of my class from Gilman, where I was heavily involved with public speaking extra curriculars, and with peer education and mentoring programs.

When it comes to education, I believe that results aren't an accurate reflection of intelligence. I've seen geniuses get overwhelmingly average grades, and guys with pretty average intellectual capacities (like myself) do very well. Everyone has the potential to do well, it's just a matter of working hard, and more importantly, working efficiently and effectively.

I'm a consulting guy, and I take a very similar approach when it comes to the students I tutor. Before I teach you or your child anything, I'll first observe their study habits and current academic results. Are they struggling with a specific concept, or are they generally not focused, or disorganized? Once I pinpoint areas which can be improved upon, I'll make a detailed plan to help us execute that improvement. Every student is different, and by taking a holistic look at their learning experience, I am confident that I will be able to improve their results.

My dad's a math professor, so math has always been a part of my life. One of the most important things he's taught me is that math isn't about using a formula to find an answer, it's about developing a tool belt of math skills and breaking down a problem so that you know which tool to use.

I've seen a lot of students plug in numbers and formulas without knowing why, and while this might work sometimes, you can't really guarantee success unless you understand what the problem is asking, and what's going on at every step of the solution. Using this approach, I've achieved a 5 on AP BC Calc, and a 770 on the Math SAT, and I can help you or your child do the same.

SAT Reading and Writing aren't really about your talent as a writer or a literary critic; they're about playing the game. The SAT is a different kind of monster, and I'm very experienced with its ins and outs. I know the rules, and once I teach them to you, you'll have a very good shot at winning the game.

I have a very flexible schedule and can't wait to meet you and set up a tutoring session!

Knowledgeable, effective, and patient tutor

Timur is a great tutor to work with. Timur helped me tremendously with my SAT writing portion and was able to increase my score by 140 points! Timur is really easy to get along with and he was able to answer every single question I had. He would go over all the answer choices and effectively explain why this is correct or why this is incorrect.He is also very patient with me during the times when I did not understand the question at all. I still meet with Timur on a weekly basis and I gain so much confidence after every lesson. I would definitely recommend Timur everyone.
