About Tim


My belief in serving as a tutor is that personalized attention along with patience and excellent communication, together with your persistent desire to learn the essential material (as evidenced by your interest in working with a tutor) make it highly probable that you will meet your learning objective.

I also believe that I am uniquely qualified to help through having earned advanced degrees (PhD and M.S.) in Chemical Engineering, and in Mental Health Counseling (M.S., 2014), through a long history of academic study. We each have our own style of learning and we learn at different rates. In many cases, effective learning is just a matter of sitting longer with the material, in thought and with some support – longer than might be routinely provided in a classroom setting. Persistence pays off. When we are not given the opportunity to persist to the degree necessary to succeed within normal school or classroom time we avail ourselves of that opportunity outside the generic framework. With the right support in the form of a good tutor, the use of this additional time can be optimized and made efficient, while at the same time reducing the likelihood of developing a mental block and/or the destructive impact of an existing one.

What makes me an outstanding tutor is that I have the ability to meet my clients at their current learning level and quickly begin to translate challenging information into understandable terms that enable forward movement towards the learning objective. My style is informal and relaxed, and my focus is always on serving to the best of my ability to help to remove learning barriers, mental blocks, and feelings of helplessness that come from feeling intimidated or lost. My academic experience and training as both an engineer and a mental health counselor bring the benefits of subject matter expertise and interpersonal skill to bear on behalf of you and your learning experience.

I would encourage you to contact me for more information and for availability at your convenience.
