About Tim

I am a teacher and instructor with over 7 years in classrooms with students from the 7th grade through college. My students are extremely successful on every high school end-of-course exam and that success continues in their future math classes. Why? We work together to develop intuition, critical thinking strategies, and perseverance. I have training as a SAT instructor as well.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Logic

I have taken classes from the Philosophy, Computer Science, and Mathematics departments in college and earned As, like philosophy and logic, discrete mathematics, and computer architecture. I have a Masters plus 30 in Mathematics. I have taught and tutored students preparing for the logic-based LSAT test. I use logic to write computer programs and solve math problems often.

Praxis

I earned a certificate from the College Board for scoring in the top 5% on the PRAXIS. I scored in the top 1% on the PRAXIS and PRAXIS 2: Math Content Knowledge. I have successfully tutored students preparing to take the PRAXIS, including specific strategies that relate to this particular test.

Python

I have As in courses like Computer Programming 1 & 2, and Analysis of Algorithms. I have work experience as a designer for an ed tech company and I am starting a job as a software developer. A few of my Python programs have been used to generate new sequences listed in the OEIS.

Statistics

I taught AP Stats and statistics at the college level.
