About Timothy


Bio

If your student is struggling with their math class this year and needs a better understanding of the material, then I'm available to help them secure a solid footing on the concepts they are still having difficulty understanding.

If your student is currently stuck at home because their school has been closed in response to COVID-19, then it is important for them to continue practicing their math skills, so that they don't forget everything by the time school restarts.

If your student is struggling with their math class this year and needs a better understanding of the material, then I'm available to help them secure a solid footing on the concepts they are still having difficulty understanding.

If your student is currently stuck at home because their school has been closed in response to COVID-19, then it is important for them to continue practicing their math skills, so that they don't forget everything by the time school restarts.

It is my belief that the best way to generate enthusiasm for a subject is for teachers to openly display their own enthusiasm, and that certainly describes me when it comes to mathematics. While I have always displayed a strong proficiency in all fields of learning when growing up, it has always been math that has been my primary love. In school, I devoured every math course that was offered, and rapidly progressed as high as I possibly could in my secondary school education (which ended at Pre-Calculus).

I recognize that math is a critical component for a well-rounded education, especially among low-income students who are seeking a means to escape the typical limitations of their economic status. The economic future of the United States lies in the STEM fields, and a solid grounding in math will help those entering the workforce of the future find positions that will not only provide a sustainable income, but also will be emotionally satisfying.

It disheartens me whenever I hear a student complain that “math is too hard,” or else that they see no practical purpose in what they are learning. Some of the fault lies in how the curriculum is taught; traditional practices are no longer effective in reaching today’s student culture. Therefore, I prefer to engage the student in the subject, making it entertaining while not sacrificing content. Any skill requires practice and effort, and I am able able to explain to the student that math competency is like exercising any muscle, except this particular one is the “brain muscle.” Likewise, I show stude

Logic

I took Logic I during my Senior year at the University of Washington and found it to be one of the most fun classes I have ever taken, and I passed it with a 4.0. I'm fully experienced with both propositional and predicate logic, how to create truth tables for each, and how to prove theorems. Some of these skills were also used in various math classes I previously took, among them Mathematical Proofs and Axiomatic Geometry.

Good and knowledgeable tutor

Tim went over precalculus - Analytic Trigonometry. My son said he was really good at explaining and easy to work with. We will definitely be seeing him on weekends.

Swapna , 8 lessons with Timothy

Great Tutor

Deeply knowledgeable, patient and makes it fun for my 13 year old. I would highly recommend Timothy. My son was against having a tutor but now he is engaged and his geometry fundamentals are getting stronger.

Sandhya, 33 lessons with Timothy

Very patient and thorough with explanations

First tutor session with Timothy for my son. My son lacks confidence when it comes to math. Timothy was very patient and went step by step through problems to help my son better understand what he was doing and how he got the answer. After leaving, I asked my son his thoughts and he liked Timothy as well. Have already booked an additional session and plan to continue working with Timothy.

Amber, 5 lessons with Timothy

Knowledgeable, Patient, and Friendly

Timothy helped my son with Algebra 2. He explained things very clearly. His calm, patient demeanor made my son feel comfortable and confident during his session.

Nicole, 10 lessons with Timothy

Very knowledgeable

My daughter Kayla said that she really enjoyed her tutoring session and that she would like to be able to have Timothy continue to help her. Explanations given to help her understand were clear and concise.
