I am a graduate student at the University of Washington. I use computational modeling to help conduct biological research. I graduated from Vanderbilt University with majors in Secondary Education and Molecular and Cellular Biology. I plan on becoming a middle/high school or a college science teacher after receiving my PhD in biology. I have lots of experience working through difficult math and science courses and know how to help others succeed in these subjects.

My passion for science and ...
My 17-year-old son is having a hard time in calculus this semester. He met with Ty for almost 2 hours and came home feeling upbeat. Ty is patient and explains things well. He uses many examples to illustrate challenging concepts. My son has had other tutors before but he said he was most productive with Ty. Thanks Ty.

She explained a concept in 20 minutes that my daughter's teacher was unable to explain in 4 weeks. She helped her with Chemistry and Math. She help break down problems step by step in a way that made it easier to understand. I would recommend her. In one session, I could see my daughter feels more hopeful now.

Ty is great at explaining and working problems out. She is very understanding and patient. She will work out the problem with you start to finish. If you know nothing then she is great at explaining the problems. Very good at explaining concepts. Very helpful with math for my chem 101 class!

My son took a 1.5 hour class for Honors Chemistry with Ty .He was Amazing and answered all his questions with patience. I highly recommend and looking forward to use his services more often. Thanks.

Ty not only knew how to solve the math GRE problems I needed help with, but explained how to solve them in an easy to understand way. He was also able to provide tips and tricks for effective studying and was patient when I would get stuck. I highly recommend him!

I've been lucky enough to not need a math tutor so far in my college education, but this past quarter trigonometry was really kicking my butt. Ty was more than helpful. Not only did he know the material, but he knew how to explain it to me, and when I needed a slow explanation versus just someone watching my work. He was also never condescending, which is sometimes a worry that I have with tutors. He was extremely encouraging! If I need more math help in the future, I'm going to him first.

Ty was available in a pinch. He is very personable and my daughter thought he was very funny. He is knowledgeable and knows his stuff and helped my daughter do well on her test the next day. We definitely will use Ty again!
- Catherine F. from Seattle, WA
Ty has proved to be very helpful throughout the sessions I have had with him. He is very knowledgeable and has helped me with the problems and subjects I have been struggling on. Ty is also very calm, and doesn't get frustrated when I am stuck on a problem. Overall, Ty is a great tutor and I highly recommend him.
- Andrew M. from Snohomish, WA
We've found a great tutor for our daughter. Ty was patient and thorough and helped my daughter improve Biology class. Very happy with the results and Ty ability to get down to business and focus on what needs to get done. Super patient and knowledgeable tutor! My daughter feels confident with her upcoming Biology test. Thank you so much! Ty B.
- Nayara P. from Seattle, WA
Patient, constructive, positive and simply the best tutor I could have asked for. Ty has restored my confidence in math and showed me multiple methods and steps to solve the problems I face, with continued progress on what suits me best. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, passionate and devoted tutor!
- Maria S. from Redmond, WA
My 15 yr old daughter liked him right away and they were able to make great progress on a backlog of biology homework. He seemed very comfortable and familiar with the material and was able to explain and coach her without pressure.
- Keith P. from Seattle, WA
Ty is so helpful and patient! As someone who has not had much experience in math, Ty really broke down the problems and provided lots of examples for me to practice with and learn from. I'm excited to continue working with him.
- Katelan H. from Seattle, WA
Ty tutored my daughter. She said, "Ty has a pleasant disposition which allowed me to immediately relax. He knows Chemistry well and explained difficult concepts with simplicity making them easier to understand. My sessions with him have been very helpful. I wish he was my Chem professor!"
- Bridgette A. from Fairfield, AL
Ty was very encouraging during my daughters tutoring session. She was pleased with the pointers given and found him very knowledgeable and helpful. We will use his services again if necessary and will refer as well.
- Temeka T. from Mount Juliet, TN
At first I didn't know if online lessons for my middle school aged daughter would be a great idea, but I was pleased to find that she actually liked it. She told me that she really liked the way he explained the answers to her and she told me she preferred the way he taught. There were a few issues with the video and mic (nothing that was the instructor's fault) that we didn't get fixed but hopefully by our next session it will be resolved. This is only our first ever try at wyznat, and our first tutoring session with Ty, but we already booked our next appointment with him.
- Janelle S. from Tucker, GA
Ty is a very knowledgeable tutor and is an engaging tutor. He helped my son with some very difficult material in preparation for a science exam and made sure that my son understood the information well. Ty is very gifted and was great for my son who has to work hard in Math and Science.
- Allison W. from Nashville, TN
Ty has been a huge help to my son with his HS Physics class. He is patient and has helped bring everything together this semester. Ty will make a great teacher once he graduates!
- Patrick R. from Brentwood, TN
He helped me go over mistakes I made on the first two tests and some homework problems I had trouble with. He explained everything in a way that was clear and made sense.
- Kendall S. from Nashville, TN
Our son has been using Ty for the past couple of weeks and loves him. Does a great job helping him work through difficult Algebra and Chemistry problems.
- Cindi R. from Nashville, TN
Ty SAVED my grade in College Physics II! He challenged me think independently about problems but was right there to help me if I got stuck. He explained the concepts in a way I could understand them. Not only did Ty help me during our sessions, but if I got stuck on a problem at home, he would help me via text message. Ty was so patient and never made me feel stupid. He is so great, and I would recommend him to anyone!!
