"Hi, I’m Timi! I graduated from Texas Christian University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and a minor in sociology on a full-ride academic scholarship. I am currently a member of the TCU College Advising Corps, a program that has enabled me to serve and mentor over 700 high school juniors and seniors. On a daily basis, I counsel students through post-secondary decisions such as college options, and I collaborate with the school administration to help raise SAT/ACT registration, scores, completed college applications and FAFSA/TASFA completions.

As well as gaining informal tutoring experience from helping my three younger siblings over the years, I have also helped other students reach their academic goals, as I was involved with the My Brother’s Keeper program, launched by President Obama to address persistent opportunity gaps facing boys and young men to ensure all youth can reach their full potential. Throughout my time in college, I also volunteered as a tutor for Hope Farm Fort-Worth, a long-term leadership development program that guides at-risk boys, without the benefit of a positive male role model in their homes, from the time they are 5-7 years old until high school graduation and beyond.

Preparation for success with college entrance exams including, SAT, ACT and TSI, while taking into account the specific student’s needs.

-Help you develop confidence and boost your grade performance in writing, including basic sentence writing, paragraph and essay development.

-Help younger learners (K-12) to build their reading, writing, grammar, and creative writing skills.

-Work with students to hone their c" less...
